Apologize for What?

Thursday, June 23, 2005

Democrats believe White House adviser Karl Rove should either apologize or resign for accusing liberals of wanting "therapy and understanding" for the Sept. 11 attackers.

That's right, the party led by a guy who said Republicans are a "White, Christian party" and "all look alike," and a guy who compared Gitmo to Nazi camps and Soviet gulags - wants Karl Rove to resign for saying liberals rather understand Islam than defeat the terrorists it breeds.

In a speech to the New York state Conservative Party, Rove said, "Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers…conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."

Now whether or not you believe Rove's comments crossed the line it's absolutely ridiculous that people are calling for his resignation. Rove is nothing more than a political consultant with no direct government influence, unlike a few Democrats (Durbin) who have spoken on the public record on the Senate floor saying Gitmo prisoners are being treated like Jews in concentration camps.
