Quoth General Schumer: "This is a war."
He 's not talking Iraq or militant Islam, he is talking November elections. Chuckee Schumer is a dangerous man. He abandons country, faith and any morality in the quest for power. This editorial in the Sun speaks volumes to the low opinion the Dems have of the American people. Always invoking their name while attempting to circumvent them at every turn.
His metaphor was a dagger aimed at the heart of those many moderate and independent-minded Americans who want to fight a war on Islamic extremist terrorists, a war on cancer, a war on poverty — but not a war on Republicans. Mr. Schumer is described further in the article as among those arguing that the Democratic Party should keep its agenda secret from the voters. "For more than a year, Democrats debated what platform to have for 2006, or whether to have one at all. Mr. Schumer was among those mostly content to bash Mr. Bush," the Journal reported.The newspaper quoted General Schumer as saying, "For us to put out a big range of ideas gives Republicans a target and gets the message off George Bush."
General Schumer is a lot of things, but he's not stupid. So if he wants to keep the Democratic Party's ideas secret from the American people in a closely fought election, it just may be that he realizes how unpopular his party's ideas are with the American people. The Democrats want to cut and run in Iraq, retreat into a defensive crouch in the war on terror while making good relations with France the top priority in American foreign policy, impose huge tax increases on American businesses and families, and appoint judges who are soft on violent criminals but easy on ambulance-chasing plaintiff's lawyers. With those kinds of ideas dominating his party, it's no wonder General Schumer wants to keep them a secret from the voters.
