So despite months of breathless predictions, Karl Rove is cleared. How does the left react to this? Well when Andrew Sullivan has one of the classiest responses in which he continues to insinuate Rove’s guilt, you know it is going to be good.
It starts from the top down: DNC Chairman Howard Dean says this is “not very good news for America.” How exactly is that? Since when did the non-indictment of a presidential advisor become a bad thing for America?
But this is where the crazy-leftists (not the normal Democrat or Independent) live. Anything that benefits the President or the Republicans is a bad for America. If he could have gotten away with it, Dean probably would have said the same thing about Al-Zarqawi if he could have gotten away with it.
Many conservatives equate conservatism with patriotism, but liberals equate liberalism with patriotism and they are rarely called on it. It is their patriotic duty to call Bush a murder and insinuate he should be assassinated, as some on the fringe have.
But even within the mainstream of the Democratic party, many would rather see American loose the war in Iraq than to see Bush get credit with making the right decision. That to me is unthinkable.
I don’t think Karl Rove being cleared is necessarily good or bad news for America. It is simply news. But for the left who was dreaming of the front page story with photo of Rove in handcuffs, this is a dreadful day. If you don’t believe me, read this:
I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago. She just couldn’t understand why the President would be going to Iraq when so many things are wrong in this country. “Doesn’t Mr. Bush care about us anymore?” she asked pitifully.
I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why the President seems to be abandoning his country. “Honey, I think his boss, Mr. Rove, sent Mr. Bush out of the country in order to keep himself out of the newspapers. You see, he wasn’t sure if he was going to be arrested today or not, and so he planned Mr. Bush’s trip ahead of time just in case…”
Oh, it gets better.
Of course, you can always count on someone at the Democratic Underground to display true patriotism about the President’s surprise trip to Iraq.
With just a few days of the top story not being “How evil is Bush?” the far-left is losing what little sanity they had.
I honestly enjoy debating and discussing with everyone here, but I am not sure I could handle a steady diet of those calling today “a bad day” or wishing for the President to be blown up by a terrorist bomb.
