A Democrat Speaks Out!

"I am shaking my head in disbelief. When I served in the army in Europe during World War II, I never heard any military commander -- let alone the commander in chief -- invite enemies to attack U.S. troops," said Lautenberg.

Lautenberg described Bush's word choice "bring them on"-- as tantamount to inciting and inviting more attacks against U.S. forces. He said that the U.S. should be aspiring for the opposite military objectives:

"We want to see the Iraqi opposition disappear. We want to see law and order restored to Iraq, which will allow the Iraqi people to live in security and freedom. These should be our goals rather than encouraging more violence and bloodshed."

-- Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), from his web site. At age 79, Lautenberg becomes the youngest Democratic senator to really criticize Bush, joining octogenarians Robert Byrd and Fritz Hollings. NBC News tonight showed Bush's statement--the "man" is insane. Let's hope this incredibly stupid remark finally opens some eyes around the country.
