Wild Thing: RNC Unveils New Ad Mocking Liberal Outrage

From The Washington Times Inside Politics a transcript of the Republican National Committee’s new Web ad titled “Wild Thing,” highlighting recent inflammatory comments by Democratic Party leaders. Just in case you can’t get the video to play here’s a transcript:

(Text on Screen): A long, long time ago …
(Montage of past presidents)
Franklin D. Roosevelt: “The only thing we have to fear …”
Harry S. Truman: “… and are determined to work for peace on earth.”
John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
(Text on Screen): Today …
(Video) Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean: “I hate what the Republicans are doing to this country. I really do.”
(Video) Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: “It is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth.”
(Video) Mr. Dean: “A lot of them have never made an honest living in their lives.”
(Print) Mr. Dean 6/6/2005: (Republican Party) “It’s pretty much a white, Christian party.”
(Video) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi: “Our plan is to stop him … stop him … he must be stopped.”
(Video) Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin: “You would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans.”
(Print) Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid 5/6/2005: “I think this guy (President Bush) is a loser.”
(Video) Mr. Reid: “I apologized for the ‘loser’; I haven’t for the ‘liar.’?”
(Video) Jon Stewart: “We turn our attention now to Washington, and the Democrats. Political party founded in 1792 that enjoyed an active role in American politics through much of the 20th century. Perhaps you’ve heard of them. No? Ask your parents.”
(Text on screen): The Democrats Today. No Vision. No Plan. Not your Parents’ Democrat Party.

The video is hysterically funny if you consider some of that some of these very people are those now expressing outrage over Karl Rove’s recent comment

Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers.

All of us know that the current “controversy” is falsely generated righteous indignation manufactured by the MSM and the Democrat Party leadership. If they had condemned Dick Durbin as strongly for his recent comments their current act might be a little more convincing.

Note that Hillary rushed to the media to condemn Karl Rove’s remarks. Her response to Durbin’s comments denigrating American troops? You check around and see if you can find one. I can’t. Harry Reid dismissed Durbin’s remarks and called the controversy over them a calculated attempt at distraction but he demanded an immediate apology or resignation from Rove for his milder, and certainly not seditious, comments . I could keep working my way through the list of the Democrat leadership comparing the level of response to each man’s statements but what’s the point? We know how such a comparison will turn out. Obviously, as others have said, this is a tempest in a tea pot.

If you want to do something useful instead of just seething over the hypocrisy of it all the phone number for the White House is 202-456-1111 or you could always e-mail President Bush at president@whitehouse.gov. Although I’m sure he doesn’t need it you might feel better after you let the President know that you support Karl Rove and agree with his statements.

RedState.org has more on how this is just idiocy fueled by a dishonest media.

The full text of Karl Rove’s comments can be found at the Washington Post.
