"Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers,'' Rove said Wednesday night. "Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."The aftermath of the attacks almost four years ago brought into the light the stark contrast between the two major political philosophies in this country, which helps explain why one is growing and the other is flailing.
"Conservatives saw what happened to us on 9/11 and said we will defeat our enemies. Liberals saw what happened to us and said we must understand our
Well, that didn't take very long. NY Senator "Chuck-E-Cheese" Schumer is already pissing and moaning about Rove's comments and demanding an apology.
Rove's response to Schumer should be a Durbin/"Hobson" fusion:
"To any of those who were offended by my remarks...sorry you feel that way. But the truth hurts, doesn't it? But on the other hand, go screw yourself."
UPDATE II: 1:29pm
Now Hillary, Lautenberg and Corzine are getting into the act. Drudge is reporting that the three of them will be issuing a statement shortly. Michelle Malkin has a post on the upcoming event. Stay tuned...
UPDATE III: 1:48pm
Democrats are freaking out. This is getting interesting. I think it's important to note that Rove said "conservatives" and "liberals", not "democrats" and "republicans". And all this right after Durbin's comments and his digging in until yesterday.
Has Rove intentionally set a trap here? We shall see...
UPDATE IV: 3:05pm
White House: Rove just "telling it like it is":
[WH Press Sec. Scott] McClellan says Rove wasn't getting personal, just describing different philosophies.
Looks like the White House was prepared for these remarks. Goes back to my question - is Rove setting the Dems up? Rove is too disciplined to let slip comments that would backlash. Hmmm.
