Senator Hutchison assaults the patriotism of millions of Americans

Karl Rove, college drop out and advisor to the president, offered his considered opinion of "liberals" in a recent speech. His statement was so repugnant--and so false--that many were strongly offended by the remarks. They demanded an apology. Others demanded his resignation.

The significance of his remarks comes from his closeness to the president and the perception that he speaks for the president in this matter. Clearly he did, and the president's press secretary confirmed it.

One also wonders whether he speaks for other republicans when he utters such falsehoods, and apparently he does. TAPPED took the time to call all of the republican senators to see whether they felt that Karl Rove expressed their views. All but two of the 55 were unavailable for comment in one way or another, but Rick Santorum's staff avowed the Mr. Rove did not after all speak for the senator. Indeed, on the matter in question, the Senator said: "On 9-11, there was no such thing as a Republican or a Democrat, and that’s what the senator believes."

The lady from Texas has a somewhat different view. Her staff assured the TAPPED callers that this senator did indeed agree with Mr. Rove's views.

So what is our senator saying about us? In Karl Rove's words, but with her endorsement:

But perhaps the most important difference between conservatives and liberals can be found in the area of national security. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers. In the wake of 9/11, conservatives believed it was time to unleash the might and power of the United States military against the Taliban; in the wake of 9/11, liberals believed it was time to… submit a petition.

As it happens, I don't believe in an afterlife that includes something called Hell. Otherwise, I would be tempted to damn them both to it.

I find your blog interesting, and thought-provoking. I cannot believe that we have people in a position of power who are so blatantly ignorant.

Found your blog via a post you made on my minister's blog.

Thanks, Scoobie's Mom. I find your minister's blog interesting and thought-provoking. I'm glad you stopped by. Do come again.

And, if that picture on your signature is Scoobie--he's a doll!
