My 2006 Congressional Campaign Commercial
Any GOP candidate may freely use this commercial. Cue tape. Cue talent. 3-2-1... action.
The Democratic leadership -- represented by Harry Reid -- says that the war in Iraq is just a distraction in the war on terror. That the situation in North Korea has worsened. And that our relationship with Iran is more dangerous than ever.
What Reid fails to mention is how we got into this mess in the first place.
In 1978, terrorism hit a new plateau when Democrat Jimmy Carter failed to support Iran's Shah and -- later -- "went out of [his] way to support" the Ayatollah Khomeini.
Little did Carter know that the new regime would invade sovereign American territory -- the US Embassy -- and hold Americans hostage for 444 days. Carter's actions would also ignite a worldwide bonfire of terrorism.
Under Democrat Bill Clinton, the U.S. blithely ignored a series of terrorist attacks including a truck-bombing of the World Trade Center,...
...a massive bombing of American servicemen and others in Saudi Arabia,...
...deadly truck-bombings of two U.S. embassies,...
...an attack on a U.S. warship, the USS Cole,...
...allowed the A.Q. Kahn nuclear parts network to thrive under their noses, which directly benefited Iran, Libya, and...
...and culminated with a second attack on the World Trade Center and another on the Pentagon.
On four occasions, Clinton also failed to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden, citing a variety of concerns.
A clear path runs from the day of the raid on the U.S. embassy in Tehran and the seizure of American hostages to 9/11. A path defined by Democratic presidents.
Now, the Democratic party tells us it will make us safer. But Democrats voted against the Patriot Act, against surveillance programs, and against missile defense.
It's taken a long time to begin climbing out of the hole dug by Democratic leaders. In this, the nuclear age of terrorism, can America really afford more Democratic "leadership"?
