At times I find the land of the wing-nuts very confusing. You see, I don't have a map.
Frequently, there are posts and sites proclaiming that criticism of the Commander in Chief during a time of war is treasonous. And then the same wing-nuts go ahead and call the President an insane wimp, a profile in dementia and worse. It's beyond me.
When Al Gore criticized W's abuse at Guantanamo, Michelle Malkin called Al's speech a seditious act. (Feb,06)
But in another post she says that "Bush has lost touch with reality." And she isn't alone in doubting the sanity of the Leader of our Armed Forces now in Iraq. (a profile in dementia, is he insane?,) Isn't this the kind of thing that is supposed to be bad for morale of our troops?
Recently Donald Rumsfeld spoke about accusations of lying by this administration: "That charge is frequently leveled against the president for one reason or another, and it is so wrong, so unfair and so destructive of a free system" of government. On May 1st, Polipundit was blunt: "George Bush is a liar and a traitor who is selling out America to his big-money paymasters." Mrs. Malkin has a subsidiary 'immigration blog' which commented on Bush's speech with "In a gesture so mendacious that it gives a whole new meaning to the notion of transparency in government." View from the Right thought the speech full of "palpable lies", and called Bush's words "one of the biggest lies in American political history."
It would be cruel, but I could go on at length.
- Powerline "It strikes me that we are coming perilously close to 'more mush from the wimp' time.
- Polipundit "El Presidente is speaking now, and every word coming out of his mouth is a lie."
- "This is pure idiocy, and it has the potential of being far more damaging to this nation than any big-government power-grab perpetuated by any previous President." (here) (Levin of National Review)
I think you probably get the point. But then, who is a traitor today?
