Democratic Hypocrites (and GeoURL)

I’ve been toying around with this cool little thing called GeoURL. I added a few meta tags to my site that tell the rest of the world my latitude and longitude (check my source if you’re curious). I then pinged GeoURL to have them index my site in their database. I’ve added a little link to the bottom of my menu that you can use to check all of the sites listed on GeoURL that are within 100 miles of me.

Consequently, I’ve added a few new links to my Sites I Frequent list, one of which is all-encompassingly. Travis posted an entry today about hypocrisy among the Democratic party. He included a link to the 2000 Democratic Party Platform, where you can read the following quotes:

bq.. In Iraq, we are committed to working with our international partners to keep Saddam Hussein boxed in, and we will work to see him out of power. Bill Clinton and Al Gore have stood up to Saddam Hussein time and time again. As President, Al Gore will not hesitate to use America’s military might against Iraq when and where it is necessary.

As President, Al Gore will tolerate no attack against American interests at home or abroad: terrorists must know that if they attack America, we will never forget. We will scour the world to hunt them down and bring them to justice.

p. Remember, these quotes were part of the Democratic Party Platform back in 2000! Why do most Democrats hate Bush for doing exactly the things they were planning to do? It makes absolutely no sense to me.

    Uh, maybe because Dems differentiate between Osama/Pakistan/Saudi Arabia (the terrorists) and Iraq/Sadaam (annoying but not our attackers.) Bush is NOT scouring the world for terrorists, he’s making the desert safe for Halliburton. Well, trying to. (See “History” for the likelihood of our success.)

    From what I understand, the deal is off with Halliburton. The U.S. military is taking over Halliburton’s duties.

    I’ve never heard Bush claim that Saddam was part of 9/11. The U.S. is taking out terrorists and dictators unilaterally, regardless of whether they had a part in the attacks on the World Trade Center. I really don’t care whether Saddam attacked us or not. He attacked his own people, has violated treaties since 1990, and deserves what he got.

    Now all the Dems are defending Saddam because they can’t admit Bush is doing what they weren’t willing to do while Clinton was in office.
