Delay: Liberals Think Terrorists"Are Wonderful People That Kill Americans"
DeLay on Liberals Reaction to Terrorists: You Cant Go After These Wonderful People that Just Killed a Bunch of Americans

Just now on Fox News, criminally indicted ex-Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX) said that liberals dont want to fight this war on terrorism. DeLay described the liberal world view as Cant we all get along? and said that liberals reaction to a terrorist attack is, You cant go after these wonderful people that just killed a bunch of Americans.

Video and Full transcript:

DELAY: They dont want to fight this war on terrorism. If they did, Bill Clinton would have led us into the war on terrorism and against Islamic fanatics. Their world view is, Cant we all get along? Surely we can talk our way out of this. And so when we are attacked, their first reaction is to recoil, and say, This is really horrible. Its too harsh and you cant go after these wonderful people that just killed a bunch of Americans.

Youve got to just find a leader here or there, put him in jail, instead of understanding, as the President understands, that we are at war. We are at war all over the world and you have to go get these terrorists and either put them in a cell or a cemetery. Thats all they know. And we have to do it with overwhelming force. Thats something that i criticize the administration for right now.

2. Can somebody just slap these people when they say something this stupid?
I like how everybody in the news media pretends that these are valid points being made by sane people. This is insanity being spewed to make people afraid and sensationalize the atmosphere.

8. I don't think the American people are as gullible anymore . . .
As they were on September 12, 2001. Or deranged with grief and anger. This shit from DeLay is not going to fly this time.

11. He's right
We don't think that going into World War III against the entire Muslim world is going to make our children safer. I guess that makes us cowards!

12. Is this the week it's okay to politicize terrorism?
I notice that Hot Tub Tom can't be bothered to name any names or cite any instances. So when you hear this inane talking point (and you will), be sure to ask the Faux News shittohead the who, what, when and where of all those libruls who don't want to fight terrorism.

Bonus points if you can get an answer to the question how taking bribes fights terrorism.

Oh, and news flash for Tom: Bill Clinton hasn't been in charge for six years. Please let us know when the Bush administration finally starts, would you? Seems like a lot of bad stuff has been happening since 2001, but none of it goes on Bush's watch even now according to you.
