San Fran Nan went into liberal crybaby mode after Cheney stated that the Dem strategy of denying funding for the troops 'validates Al Qaeda's strategy'.
He didn't say anything about patriotism and Nan knows it. The facts are clear: If we don't complete the mission we have failed. If we fail, Al Qaeda wins. It's really quite simple.
Here's what he said:
"I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the al-Qaida strategy," the vice president told ABC News. "The al-Qaida strategy is to break the will of the American people ... try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit."
And Al Qaeda is banging their heads on the floor and praying to Allah that the Dems prevail.
Is there anybody out there who would deny that?
What does Nan do? She actually tries to call the President to whine about Cheney's comments. I'm sure that after being put on hold for an appropriate amount of time, the White House operator informed her that, "The President has more pressing issues to deal with. Thanks for calling...."
This is the same lame liberal strategy that's been used countless times already; If somebody attacks your ideas then you should claim that they are questioning your patriotism.
Read the article for yourself. Nowhere does Cheney question anybody's patriotism.
During Friday's interview in Sydney with ABC News, Cheney said, "I'm not sure what part of it is that Nancy disagreed with. She accused me of questioning her patriotism. I didn't question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment."
"You also have to be accountable for the results. What are the consequences of that? What happens if we withdraw from Iraq?," he said. "And the point I made and I'll make it again is that al-Qaida functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That's their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we'll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of al-Qaida. I said it and I meant it."
Asked if he was willing to take back his criticism of Pelosi, Cheney replied, "I'm not backing down."
