This is NOT a serious party anymore

Democrats rebut soft-on-terror rap
Nation/Politics - The Washington Times
"Capitol Hill Democrats said yesterday they will not be 'swift-boated' by Republicans who accuse them of being soft on national security and coddling terrorists.

'Democrats stand ready to protect and defend the American people,' House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, said. 'We will not be swift-boated on the issue of security, and that is what the Republicans are trying to do.'

Mrs. Pelosi was referring to the group Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, which was highly critical of John Kerry's presidential candidacy in 2004.

Part of national security, said the House's top Democrat, is protecting the environment.

'We are advancing tough and smart national security policies to keep the American people safe,' said Mrs. Pelosi, adding that Democrats' national security agenda aims 'to fight terrorism and defeat it, stop the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, to stop global warming and any other threats to the safety and security of the American people.'"

So when it comes to national defense, the Dems idea is that the first line of defense is to have lots of trees, clean air, and marmalade skys. Yes, yes, I see the logic: Who could possibly want to attack that?
