Pelosi, Bush and Bin Laden

Over the weekend, Nancy Pelosi said the following in regard to Osama Bin Laden:

The damage that he has done is done. And even to capture him now I don’t
think makes us any safer.

I would think it would be obvious to anyone with an ninth grade education that Pelosi is pointing out that terrorism has matastisized to the point that even the capture of the most dangerous terrorist would have little overall effect. Arguable but not necessarily inaccurate.

But that ain't the way some Georgia congressman see it.

First, Phil Gingrey jumped in stating that Pelosi meant that Bin Laden was not a threat. Then, today, Jack King jumped on the scare mongering band wagon.

Do Republicans really believe that Democrats want Americans to die? Do they really believe that Americans are so blind they will buy that tripe?

But that's really not the point right now. I hope that at some point the honorable gentlemen from Georgia will address another politician who doesn't equate the capture of Bin Laden with American safety.

I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's
not that important. It's not our priority.

That would be the words of our great leader, George W. Bush.
