This week Iowa Democrat Senator Tom Harkin had the nerve to say that he understands Hugo Chavez's "Bush as devil" comments at the UN. After all, as he claims:
Sen. Harkin obviously does not watch Memri:
"We tend to forget that a few days after 9-1-1 thousands, thousands of Iranians marched in a candlelight procession in Teheran in support of the United States. Every Muslim country was basically on our side. Just think, in five years, President Bush has squandered all that." Harkin says the U.S. has put billions of dollars into the Iraq war, when it could be helping poor countries with things like clean water, medical aid and education."
Interesting while watching this video, seeing all the Islamic leaders who immediately raised the conspiracy spectre, accusing and implicating world Zionism in the bombing of the WTC.
Of course, it's taken as the home grown Lefties in America to go so far as to accuse President and his evil mastermind-in-charge Karl Rove of arranging the bombing, detonating adjacent buildings and presenting "holograms" of jets flying into the towers.
Just as Senator Harkin has a fantasy of the Islamic world in tears, holding candlelight vigils for America, until the hateful Bush ruined everything, Then too the Left is unashamed in their belief that the Islamists were totally innocent, while it was the Evil Satan in the White House who perpetrated this horror against his own people.
So who looks more stupid: Chavez? The Lefties? Or Senator Harkin?
I say all of the above.
