Just a little bit of history repeating

It's funny that Democrats and their scare tactics really haven't evolved that much over the past decade. And for once it's the LATimes that has the story. Take these quotes:

Sen. John Kerry: "I do not believe our nation is prepared for war. If we do go to war, for years people will ask why Congress gave in. They will ask why there was such a rush to so much death and destruction when it did not have to happen."

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy: "It'll be brutal and ugly. The 45,000 body bags the Pentagon has sent to the region are all the evidence we need of the high price in lives and blood that we will have to [bear]."

Former President Jimmy Carter: "The devastating consequences will be [felt] … for decades to come, in economic and political destabilization of the Middle East region."

As current as those quotes from the lefty moonbats may seem, they were actually from the Gulf War lead by President Bush, Sr. What are the chances that another Bush would lead another war into the middle east and receive the exact same criticisms from the exact same people? And probably the most revealing comment: "There is no question [Bush, Sr] made plenty of mistakes, some of them foreseeable. But what about the naysayers? When will they apologize for everything they've gotten wrong over the years?"

In other words, being a liberal means never having to say your sorry. Apologizing is usually something most of us learn in Kindergarten, but liberals must have missed that day of class. How many slanderous things have been said just about this president by celebrities (he's an idiot), (he's a Nazi) and fellow politicians (Ted -hic- Kennedy's abu-Gharab under new management comment comes to mind). Kerry alone has been on the wrong side of Vietnam, the cold war, Iraq the first time around, and all the small conflicts inbetween. Any apologies? I must have missed them. It's not like I'm paying attention, and I'm certainly not holding my breath.
