The best defense is a good offense

When President Bush left for his Asian trip yesterday, I figured that his fighting back would go on hiatus until he got back. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Vice President Dick Cheney was on fire in a speech tonight in which he declared the President’s tactics “…the suggestion that’s been made by some U. S. senators that the President of the United States or any member of this Administration purposely misled the American people on pre-war intelligence is one of the most dishonest and reprehensible charges ever aired in this city…” and “The President and I cannot prevent certain politicians from losing their memory, or their backbone – but we’re not going to sit by and let them rewrite history.”

Those are fighting words! But wait, that’s not all!

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld also came out swinging today. He cited the now-famous statements of President Clintion in 1998, and lashed out at the libs. He said, “We’ve got men and women serving in Iraq, risking their lives on the one hand and on the other hand, we have people suggesting that the reason we’re there was because the president decided to go in based on information that was unique to him, and it wasn’t unique to him. The information that he based his decision on was the same information that President Clinton and the previous administration had. It’s the same information members of the House and Senate had.”

The administration has awoken from the slumber that it has been in since Hurricane Katrina. It’s about time, and we’re behind you, Mr. President! Keep up the fight!
