The hard-left Democrats' and MSM's new war against the Bush Administration.... kicked off by The New York Times....
Led in the U.S. Congress by the likes of Democrats Sen. Dick "accuse American troops of being Nazis, fascists and torturers" Durbin and Rep. Nancy "halfwit in search of a clue" Pelosi, the party of vengeful losers is planning to use the Alito nomination and Senate hearings as their war theatre and forum for more Bush-bashing.
Considering recent polling data by reputable polling entities, these leftists will also be battling the vast majority of the American people who can see the forest without getting lost examining every tree.
So, I say to the bitter, befuddled and leaderless left who want to weaken America.... Bring It On!

"Democrats to hit White House, Republicans on privacy issues"
"Democrats on Capitol Hill are drafting a strategy to attack the Bush administration and Republicans as having little regard for the privacy of Americans.
"We will initiate at the beginning of this year one of the most serious debates and discussions on Capitol Hill in our history about individual rights and liberties," Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin said just before Christmas.
The topic will be a major focus of the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of federal Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. as privacy rights -- the political code phrase for abortion rights -- already has become a major issue, Mr. Durbin said.
Democratic leaders then plan to keep the issue alive as they continue their opposition to key parts of the USA Patriot Act, which is set to expire in early February unless extended.
But the real payoff, Democrats say, will be the hearings into President Bush's authorization of warrantless spying on terror suspects.... "Senator Specter has promised a hearing on the questions that have been raised about eavesdropping and spying on Americans," Mr. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, said. "At the same period of time, we will be debating those same issues in the context of the Patriot Act and the war on terrorism."
Democratic aides say privately that while it remains a high goal to win control over the House or Senate in the November elections, they think the issue will resonate with voters. Centrist Democrats, however, warn that such a strategy could backfire....
....Democrats, such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have been full speed ahead on the new strategy. The California Democrat has been critical of Mr. Bush's eavesdropping policy, portions of the Patriot Act and the war in Iraq...."
