Democrat Presidential candidate Bill Richardson has a message for the people he's appealing to: American President George Bush is no better than Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Richardson is seemingly reaching out to the crew at TheDailyKOS.
An online poll conducted this week at the "new center of the Democratic Party"'s website was revealing: In an election matchup between Bush and Ahmadinejad, Bush narrowly squeaked out a 52-45% win. Little Green Footballs captured a screen shot of the poll. The Left's favorite response to any discovery of how they really think is "Satire!" No on remembered it this time.
This did not go undetected by Democrats. The following is a letter sent out by Richardson's campaign this morning.
Dear (my name),The letter then makes an appeal for a $50 donation.
Yesterday, the Presidents of Iran and of the United States both addressed the United Nations.
In his speech, Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, confirmed what we already knew: he is a demagogue and a despot.
And in his own speech, our President, George W. Bush, confirmed something else we already knew: he is a fearmonger, whose unwillingness to use diplomacy to confront our enemies has made America less safe.
Just like before their reckless invasion of Iraq, President Bush and Vice President Cheney have been rattling sabers about Iran's nuclear program and about how all options are on the table in regard to military force. It's "axis of evil" all over again!
This kind of rhetoric does not help America's strategic interests or improve the stability of that troubled region.
Like a Christmas present, the morning mail many times brings surprises. Some cause delight and some cause one to roll their eyes. The letter in question causes one to close thier eyes, pondering the curious position of the Democrat Party on foreign affairs. By kowtowing to the unhinged few who blog among them, Democrats are forcing a debate next year in which are they are taking an unsettling position. According to this letter, that position seems to be:
George Bush is no better than a man who has vowed to destroy the United States.
