On the record

The Dems sure talk a good game in the heat of the moment, but as soon as that moment passes they seem to forget all about their earlier concerns and instead turn on those providing our security. The latest is Dianne Feinstein:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said there should have been swift action after a member of the Nigerian government alleged that his son was becoming radicalized.

"It seems to me that when this happens, the person should go automatically on the no-fly list," she said. "I'd rather, in the interest of protecting people, overreact rather than underreact."

Really Dianne? Because I would certainly hope that would be your position. The question is, will that be your position 3 months from now? 6 months from now? 1 year from now? Or, when necessary precautions are taken in the future to protect the American people, will you instead turn around and start accusing law enforcement officers of "profiling" or "overzealous interrogations?"

Not unlike Sen. Pelosi, who in 2002 was briefed on enhanced interrogations like waterboarding and not only did she not object, but the committee apparently asked if stronger steps should be taken. The same Pelosi who just a few years later led the charge against those trying to protect us, and pulled a complete 180 from her earlier stance.

Somehow these senators have got to be held accountable. One hopes the MSM is paying attention and highlights any hypocrisy.

And by the way Obama, how's that extended open hand thing working out?

Shockingly, it turns out that NOT everyone around the world is a rational person who only turned extremist because the US "harmed" them. There are, in fact, psychopaths and evil people who intend to do us harm REGARDLESS of our policies.

North Korea, Iran, terrorist training camps and attempted attacks against the US. Check, check and check. Still going on, and certainly with no less activity than on Jan. 19, 2009.

The Dems are nothing if not shamelessly contradictory to meet the needs of the moment.

Outraged about terrorists on September 12, 2001. Outraged about Bush in October, 2004.

They're prostitutes hawking Fleur de Lis politics. Whatever you desire.
