RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I have a prediction to make for you, and I based the prediction on a news story I’m already holding in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. That prediction is this. Before the day is out we will have Democrats on television, this afternoon and tonight, whenever, before the day is out, accusing Bush administration policies for creating this near terrorist incident at Fort Dix where the Albanian nationals, many of them Islamists, wanted to go in there and kill as many American soldiers as possible at Fort Dix, New Jersey. I’m just going to tell you, you mark my words, the Democrat talking points have gone out, I don’t know if they’ve come out from MoveOn.org to elected Democrats or what have you, or if they’ve come from the DNC, Bush policies are going to be blamed for this.
Now, this not a tough prediction. Actually I think, and we’ve discussed on previous occasions many times, that long after Bush is no longer in the White House whenever there’s a terrorist attack the Democrats are going to keep blaming Bush policies for it. Here’s why I know this is true. In Kansas, the governor there, ‘Kathleen Sebelius says the war in Iraq has exposed holes in domestic disaster response like the one currently under way in tornado-ravaged Kansas. The governor said about half the state’s National Guard trucks are in Iraq, equipment that would be helpful in removing debris. Sebelius, who asked the Pentagon in December to replenish lost resources, said the state also is missing a number of well-trained personnel. ‘I don’t think there is any question if you are missing trucks, Humvees and helicopters that the response is going to be slower,’ Sebelius said. ‘The real victims here will be the residents of Greensburg, because the recovery will be at a slower pace.’ White House spokesman Tony Snow said the National Guard has equipment positioned around the country to respond to disasters when requested by the states. ‘There’s been an enormous amount of help on the scene already, frankly, when it comes to what’s been going on with the tornado. FEMA has certainly been actively engaged…’
See, everything these damned Democrats do is political. You’ve got a town wiped out, and it’s political. It’s Bush’s fault. And now this Fort Dix thing, mark my words, it’s going to Bush’s fault. Everything they do; every news story that happens they look at and analyze through a political prism, and it’s all oriented toward the elections of 2008. Which, that’s fine, that’s who they are. You just hope that more and more people would become aware and offended by this. These guys at Fort Dix, was there not terrorism before George W. Bush was ever heard of as a political candidate, even governor in Texas? Yes, there were. There will continue to be terrorist attacks all over the world. Blame Bush policies for this rather than blame the six captured terrorists themselves is classic.
