State of the Union - Democrats and thier "Patriotism"

Last night was the State of the Union address to the nation. President Bush did what many presidents before him did - break the speech into two parts: domestic and foreign policy. He gave a laundry list of ideas on both fronts. Some items received little applause, some received wild applause, and some received divided applause.

The opposing party (in this case, the Democrats) usually sit on their hands when the president details a partisan plan. It wasn't a suprise to see them sit (and see Republicans clap enthusiastically) when Bush mentioned tax cuts, education reform, and tort reform. Everyone knows the Dems prefer to keep your money in Washington and control of your children in Washington. They also want to keep government hands off their trial lawyer friends, who funnel tremendous amounts of money to the Dems.

There is one particular time they chose to sit on their hands - and all of America should take notice, for the Dems have shown who they really are: unpatriotic Americans. Bush delivered the following line:
This is not the fight we entered in Iraq, but it is the fight we are in. Every one of us wishes that this war were over and won. Yet it would not be like us to leave our promises unkept, our friends abandoned, and our own security at risk. Ladies and gentlemen: On this day, at this hour, it is still within our power to shape the outcome of this battle. So let us find our resolve, and turn events toward victory.
There you have it. The president uses the "V" word and the Dems will have none of it. They have been against the US (and thus siding with terrorists) since the beginning of this war. If you recall, they didn't even want us going into Afghanistan (remember all the comments about the body bags - after all, Russia couldn't win there, so we couldn't, either).

They have been on the sidelines, exploiting every dead serviceman for the past four years. The president pledges to support our allies and win the war - and the Dems sit on their hands. The RNC should put this footage in all of their ads, and play those ads for the next year.

The next election cannot come soon enough.

The Media and "Diversity" in the NFL

Could the media be drooling over themselves more than they are? Two of the biggest news stories in the NFL are totally focused on race - not football!

After the Colts dispatched the Patriots, the announcers couldn't contain themselves. They focused on the fact that it will be the first Super Bowl where two black coaches will face each other.

Today, the Steelers are expected to name Mike Tomlin as their new head coach. What is the focus of the story? His race!

So what? The two Super Bowl coaches (Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith) are facing each other because they are great coaches and they have great teams. It makes no difference that they are black! It detracts from their success to focus on their race. They made it because they busted their tails to get there.

As for Tomlin, I'm still trying to find out if he's going to be a great coach. Every article tells me that he's black. As a Steelers fan, I want the best coach and I don't care what color he is! White, black, Asian...whatever - hire the best coach!

I imagine that Tomlin has great abilities - otherwise the Rooneys wouldn't have hired him. Heck, the Rooneys want to show the world that they are "diverse," but they want to win even more. I trust that Tomlin is the guy - I just wish the media would tell me why.

Americans Understand Democrat Plan for America

In case you were wondering if America truly knew what the Democrats wanted for America, it seems the answer is "yes." Hat tip to FoxNews.com:

Dems Hope for Failure?
The latest FOX News Opinion Dynamics poll indicates almost half of those surveyed believe Democrats want the president's plan for Iraq to fail. 48 percent said they believe Democrats are hoping for failure and a U.S. troop withdrawal in defeat. 32 percent said they believe Democrats want the president's plan to work. The president's favorable rating was 38 percent in the latest poll — down five percent from October. But that was higher than the number for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who came in at 33 percent.


The confusing part is whether or not Americans care. After all, the Dems did ride into Washington telling voters that they wanted to cut and run. The big question is if Republicans want that same action, or did they sit at home for other reasons?

It is my contention that Republicans - specifically conservatives - stayed home during the last election because there are so few politicians in Washington that represent them. After spending like liberals for the last six years, the GOP came to the voters with the conservative song and dance. A lot of conservatives weren't going to believe it. Dems win.

Now we get what we "wanted." Those who didn't vote because of an issue or two let the Dems win the day with their anti-military message. Now they think they have a mandate to withdraw the troops (and ram through their liberal agenda).

President Bush isn't a fan of the veto. Let's hope he becomes a believer really soon.

Scott Dunn's Lawyer Seeks to Discard Statements to Police

Stephen Misko, the lawyer for accused killer Scott Dunn, has filed pretrial motions to exclude the statements made by his client. Dunn is suspected of brutally beating Brandi Montgomery Dunn to death and then setting fire to her parents' Grove City house with her body inside.

Hat tip to The Herald (Sharon, PA):

Misko asks the court to suppress statements Dunn made to Grove City and state police because he requested an attorney prior to, during and after making them.

“I have several witnesses who overheard him request counsel,” Misko said by phone Thursday. “It’s (the police’s) belief it was more of an inquiry than a statement. It was simply not granted. They wanted to interview him and they did.”

He is also asking the judge for a change of venue for his trial due to heavy media attention.

Misko said that because of the extensive media coverage of the case, he is worried that the jury pool in Mercer County could be polluted. He’s asking Common Pleas Court Judge Thomas Dobson to consider moving the trial to another county or to choose a jury from citizens in another area to hear the case.
