Post-Gazette Wants President Bush's Daughters To Die

Another noxious editorial by the Psychosis-Gazette starts off sounding like one of their best efforts ever, touting the tradition of military service in the British royal family right on through to Prince Harry's deployment to Iraq. Then it all falls apart in the last paragraph:

The contrast with the military record (or nonrecord) of the American president and vice president and their offspring is hard to miss.
The general feeling on the Left, that the children of Republican politicians should go to Iraq where they can get killed, is hard to miss. A few months ago, my wife and I were at a movie, when an Army recruiting commercial played during the previews. She opined, "And go to Iraq and get killed."

Her mother was visiting our house a few weeks ago, and during a news program about Iraq war casualties, the old cow said, "Why doesn't he send his own daughters to fight?" I have never struggled so hard to refrain from using violence.

If you listen carefully to the prevailing moonbat sentiment, you quickly realize that they have adopted the meme that anyone who serves in Iraq is destined to die there. They harp on the casualties, without any regard to who we are fighting and why. Every death, every injury, is one too many.

Not for the Left, however. Their side scores political points with every death. Dead American soldiers are good for Democrats. Who benefits from the blood of dead Americans? The Jackass party, of course -- that's why they're in control of Congress.

Something to ponder: Does "enemies foreign and domestic" include the Post-Gazette editorial board? It certainly seems like it.

A recent column by a former editor of USA Today in the same paper "reluctantly" labeled Bush 43 as the worst US President ever. The rationale provided was mostly based on the perceived erosion of American Citizen freedoms during this administration.
Excuse me...didn't FDR roundup and lock down 20,000 Japanese "US Citizens" during World War II?
Sorry about the offpoint rant...

Sorry the number of "Citizens" was 80,000!

Yep, he sure did. Our contemporaries prefer to gloss over the past, especially when it's something that one of the patron saints of their secular religion did. FDR stopped the depression! It took him almost two terms and a worldwide military conflict to do it, but dammit he was president so it was all his success! The 80,000? Eh, FDR didn't have much to do with that.

Anyway, I fail to see how any current erosion of liberties compares to those of the 1930s or 1960s.
