Ham-handed Dems Didn't Lay A Glove On Alito
by Mark Steyn - January 15, 2005 - The Chicago Sun-Times
I find it, as grave somber Senate Democrats like to say, "troubling." Indeed, I find it not just "troubling" but sad that a party once so good at "the politics of personal destruction" has got so bad at it.
The last time they had a Supreme Court nominee to hang upside down in the Democrat bondage dungeon was the John Roberts hearings. And at least, when hatchet man Chuck Schumer professed himself "troubled" by the "fullness" of John Roberts' "heart," the crack oppo-research guys had uncovered an "inappropriate" use of the word "amigo" by Roberts back in the early '80s.
But, with Sam Alito the worst they come could up with was that he might have been around some other guy who might have used the word "amigo." Not back in the early '80s, but in the early '70s.
As a regular reader of the Inner Banks Eagle will know, I am in favor of a strong Republican Party because of a belief that the democratic party has been take over by unpatriotic socialists who are dedicated to the destruction of freedom and capitalism in America. These extremists and the party leaders who pander to them were on constant display during these hearings. Can anyone who is a patriot honestly say they are proud of the democrats claim that wire-tapping foreign terrorists when they telephone people here in America is a serious threat to our freedom?
This attack is based on the political fervor of the socialists in the democratic party who hate America's military power. Anything, absolutely anything that limits our power or exposes us to attack is preferable to them. Why would any patriot support a party that has been taken over by people who wish to destroy our form of democracy?
