Karl Rove, the architect behind President Bush's election victories, on Wednesday night told a gathering of the New York Conservative Party that "Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers." Conservatives, he said, "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."
He added that groups linked to the Democratic Party made the mistake of calling for "moderation and restraint" after the terrorist attacks.
The liberal side of the blogosphere is going ballistic, see the comment attached to a previous post I wrote regarding Senator Durbin's apology. They want to compare unelected Carl Rove's remarks regarding liberal organizations, such as MoveOn.org, made at a fundraiser for conservatives to remarks made by a U.S. Senator on the floor of the U.S. Senate. The odd thing about the bruhaha over Rove's remarks is the response from Democrats. Rove did not equate his remarks to Democrats so why are they taking such offense? Hillary Clinton didn't oppose the war, so why does she think that Rove's remarks were criticizing her? The vote was overwhelming, with full bipartisan support after 9/11, and so for Democrats to act like some offense to them is equal to the offense Dick Durbin's remarks have toward our military and the U.S. in general is stretching credulity to the point of absurdity.The fact that Dick Durbin's remarks were out and out false and Rove's remarks stated facts not in question brings up another mystery as to why the Democrats are taking such offense. Can anyone say with a straight face that MoveOn.org doesn't have an anti-American, anti-military agenda? Why would otherwise rational Democrats want to associate themselves with the far left liberal fanatic fringe? Where does this leave the majority of the Democratic Party who are basically strong and patriotic Americans just like moderates of both parties and conservative Republicans?
I see no correlation between Senator Durbin's remarks that demanded on their face an apology and Karl Rove's remarks.
