Cheers and Jeers–Giffords and Grijalva Update


In my last post regarding Gabrielle Giffords, freshman Congressman from Arizona’s 8th District here, I asked a very pointed question regarding her stance on the MoveOn.org smear ad of General David Petraeus.

My computer has been down for a few days. I was just able to view the roll call.

I am pleased to see Congressman Giffords voted IN FAVOR of condemning MoveOn.org. Cheers to Congressman Giffords for her stance–it will certainly be remembered come election time.


However, the far leftist traitor also addressed in that post, Raul Grijalva, Arizona’s 7th District Congressman, voted AGAINST condemning MoveOn.org.

What can you expect from a traitor who doesn’t keep in contact with his WHITE constituency, only communicates with his Spanish speakers (running his entire campaign in Spanish and ONLY in the Mexican areas of town regardless of his district borders and constituency), whether legal or illegal, encourages the illegals and refuses to go to a memorial of an illegal soldier who gave his life for the country he loved (he didn’t fit Grijalva’s agenda as a downtrodden, leech off the system criminal)? A Pancho Villa wanna-be–and that’s NOT a compliment–(just look at his mustache) who is as comfortable with La Raza and its agenda as he is with the snakes in Washington, slithering through the halls with the likes of Pelosi and ReidCo, while trying to stay in the background to keep his fat ass in a cushy government position?

It seems our freshman Congressman, Gabrielle Giffords, has more integrity in her little finger than Grijalva does in his whole bloated, fat, greasy body.

Congressman Giffords, you answered a very important question of mine and you did it with class. Thank you for your denouncement of MoveOn.org and their smear campaign against General David Petraeus.

MoveOn is THE Gift That Keeps Giving…To The GOP


Cross posted from Wake up America

Especially to presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani.

Quick recap for anybody that hasn’t seen the dust up MoveOn caused with an ad attacking General Petraeus, an ad that some Democrats have mildly spoken out against but the majority of Democratic politicians have silently stood by, some hoping that by ignoring the whole issue it would go away, and some, like Hillary Clinton, going as far to pander to MoveOn by reiterating their slanderous accusations.

Republicans immediately stood up and spoke out and John Boehner even proposed a resolution to condemn the baseless accusations which the Democratic politicians blocked from coming to a vote, further pandering to MoveOn.

Caught up? Good.

Enter Rudy Giuliani.

As I said, I have not decided who I will personally endorse yet, but Rudy Giuliani definitely stood up to be counted and went on the offensive against MoveOn and Hillary Clinton and defended General Petraeus against their unfounded attack against the General, a man that was voted unanimously, 81-0, into the position of of commanding our troops in Iraq, with a full page ad of his own in the New York Times.

Take a look at the role call on that vote, Hillary Clinton was one of those that voted unanimously for General Petraeus.

(Click image to enlarge)
He then followed that up with a video on his website that pounded the point home.

“Just when our troops need all our support to finish the job, Hillary Clinton is turning her back on them,” the ad’s narrator intones. “General Petraeus and the brave men and women now serving under him deserve an apology. And our nation deserves better.”

His online donations instantly started coming in and support for him rose immediately.

Despite attempts from the left side of the blogosphere, and the Democratic politicians to make this issue go away, it is still being reported on, blogged on and talked about in a variety of mediums and will no doubt haunt the Democratic presidential candidates well into the 2008, for no other reason than they did not step up to the plate and denounce MoveOn for going to far and crossing a line.

As we showed yesterday, active military and veterans alike as well as their families and supporters are understandably upset and angered over MoveOn’s attack ad as well as the Democrats that did not condemn them for it, especially Hillary Clinton.

One such Iraq veteran publicly took Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer to the woodshed. In that same piece we showed you the American Legion, which is the largest organization of veterans that exists today and has since 1919 also stepping up and speaking out against MoveOn.

One retired Air Force Colonel is looking for legal help to sue MoveOn for libel on behalf of General Petraeus.

This is not going away and it is a noose around the neck of every Democratic politician that did not stand up and condemn MoveOn’s ad against General Petraeus, as it should be.

A piece in The Swamp points out how Clinton is trying to doubletalk her way out of condemning MoveOn, without success.

McCain, too, has repeatedly called on Clinton to renounce the anti-war group’s rhetoric.

But as Clinton received the endorsement today of Gen. Wesley Clark, the retired four star general who opposes the Iraq war, she twice refused to do so.

“I made clear my great respect for Gen. Petraeus and his service to our country,” Clinton said, referring to her remarks at the Senate Armed Services hearing last week.

Clinton said the disagreement she has with her Republican opponents and with President Bush is over how to end the war and how to address the failures of the administration and work towards a political solution.

When asked a second time if she thought the ad went too far, Clinton again said that she has repeatedly expressed her admiration for Petraeus and for the troops.

“I think that speaks for itself,” Clinton said.

Still, her refusal to explicitly say the ad was unfair has provided great fodder for candidates on the Republican side of the presidential race.

In Florence, S.C., McCain said he couldn’t understand Clinton’s position.

“I don’t know how you can say you admire Gen. Petraeus and you won’t condemn an advertisement that accuses him of betraying the United States of America,” he said. “That just is nonsense. I hope she’ll reconsider and condemn that ad. I’ve seen her in the presence of Gen. Petraeus and she respects him and admires him. I hope she’ll change her position.”

It isn’t like Hillary doesn’t have other problems dogging her already, Norman Hsu being one in a long list, and as she tries her hardest to distract everyone from this MoveOn issue and her standing with them, the rest of us, will not forget and we will not let anyone else forget her words against General Petraeus, the man she voted for to go into Iraq and command and the man she has now betrayed with her words.

MoveOn managed to refocus the American people and forced them to either agree with them, or rally behind General Petraeus, a man who has devoted his life to our country and polls that have been taken since the MoveOn ad hit the paper has shown the public trusts General Petraeus and our military by 68% and even the presidents number rose within days of that ad coming out in the NYT.

MoveOn, it seems, is the gift that keeps giving….to the GOP.

Amazing for a group that has donated, contributed and supported the Democrats for so long.

The problem that the Democratic politicians have now is that it is too late to condemn MoveOn, even if they wanted to, and despite the fact that MoveOn has damaged them and that they would prefer MoveOn to keep giving them money but quit acting out like a spoiled child and making them look bad, MoveOn will not stand down, will not stop acting out because, as they stated so bluntly, they bought and own the Democratic party.

December 2004:

In a December 9th e-mail signed by “Eli Pariser, Justin Ruben, and the whole MoveOn PAC team,” the Soros front group stated: “In the last year, grassroots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC, and proved that the Party doesn’t need corporate cash to be competitive. Now it’s our Party: we bought it, we own it, and we’re going to take it back.”

Yes, MoveOn.org, the gift that keeps on giving….to the GOP.

Giuliani SLAMS Hillary Some More

Earlier we showed you the full page New York Times ad the Rudy Giuliani placed slamming Hillary Clinton for her comments to General Petraeus which were no better than the disgusting MoveOn.org ad.

(Click image to enlarge)

Read the whole post…

NOW, Rudy has a video up on his site, smacking her around even more!!!!

From Boston Globe:

After having placed a full-page ad in The New York Times today defending General David H. Petraeus and accusing Clinton of a “character attack,” Giuliani posted his first online ad on his campaign website with more of the same.

In the spot, he calls on Clinton to apologize for telling Petraeus during Senate hearings this week that his testimony about progress in Iraq required “the willing suspension of disbelief.” The ad also challenges Clinton to condemn “a venomous ad” placed by the antiwar group MoveOn.org that charged Petraeus with “cooking the books for the White House.”

The one-minute, 50-second ad, titled “She Changed,” opens with footage of Clinton, in 2002, as she prepared to vote to authorize the Iraq war, describing the Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, as a threat to use weapons of mass destruction. It charges that she has changed her position on the war.

“Just when our troops need all our support to finish the job, Hillary Clinton is turning her back on them,” the ad’s narrator intones. “General Petraeus and the brave men and women now serving under him deserve an apology. And our nation deserves better. Senator Clinton, do the right thing. Apologize for your comments and condemn the MoveOn.org ad.”

Her pitiful response?

“It’s hardly surprising that Mayor Giuliani is running the first negative ad of the ’08 campaign, given his inability to justify his unqualified support for President Bush’s failed Iraq strategy,” Clinton campaign spokesman Phil Singer told the Associated Press.

The ad quotes Clinton who said, “if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons… He has also given aid, comfort and sanctuary to terrorists, including al-Qaida members.”

“But now that she’s running for president, Hillary Clinton has changed her position, even joining with the radical group MoveOn.org in attacking American General Petraeus,” the ad claims. “Clinton stood silently by when MoveOn.org ran a venomous ad in The New York Times.”

Go watch the video!!!

Give Elizabeth Edwards some credit, SHE had the class to slam MoveOn.

Rudy Giuliani Ad in the New York Times

Cross posted from Wake up America by request from Beth.

Contribute to pay for this ad here.

The NYT reports that Rudy Giuliani sought — and received — space in Friday editions of the newspaper for an advertisement in which he praises General Petraeus.

From The Prowler/American Spectator:

The New York Times in the past has rejected “advocacy” ads from Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, as well as from the National Right to Life Committee, despite the fact that both would have qualified for the same “special advocacy, stand by” rates that the radical, left-wing organization MoveOn.org was given for its smear ad of Gen. David Petraeus.

MoveOn, which is largely financed by billionaire George Soros, as well as other major financial donors to the Democratic National Committee, was given a $100,000 discount for the ad which called the U.S. commander of armed forces in Iraq a traitor. According to a MoveOn organizer in Washington, D.C., the organization has raised more than twice that amount since the full-page ad appeared in the Times earlier this week. “It was a great fundraising opportunity for us.” The source added that the group was looking to perhaps turn the ad into a poster that they could further fundraise off of.

The Times claimed that MoveOn was given no special treatment, but several organizations that sought to place ads in a similar manner in past years have been turned away or were told that the ads were bumped for higher paying ads.

Quoting Hillary Clinton at the top of that ad was a stroke of genius on Rudy’s part and will probably further the lead he has just taken in the latest poll over Hillary Clinton:

Rudy Giuliani Preferred President Over Hillary Clinton If Terrorists Attack America

NEW YORK — A majority of Americans say they would feel more comfortable with Rudy Giuliani in the White House than Hillary Clinton if another terrorist attack were to happen in the United States, according to a new FOX News poll.

When compared to other top Republican candidates, more voters see Giuliani as hardworking and as a strong leader, while Clinton leads the Democratic field for not only having the right experience, but also being able to bring about change — as well as doing whatever it takes to win. Views are divided on whether it’s appropriate for Oprah Winfrey to use her celebrity status to encourage support of Barack Obama.

The latest FOX News poll shows that if the United States were hit with a terrorist attack, by a 50 percent to 36 percent margin, Americans would rather have Giuliani in charge than Clinton, including 28 percent of Democrats and an overwhelming 80 percent of Republicans. Independents split in Giuliani’s favor 47 percent to Clinton’s 28 percent.

OUCH.

Freedom’s Watch, a conservative group, ran a full-page, color advertisement in The Times on Sept. 11. In a letter Thursday to its publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the president of Freedom’s Watch, Bradley A. Blakeman, said: “The New York Times representative explained to us that we could run a standby rate ad for $65,000, but we could not pick the date or placement of the ad.” Mr. Blakeman said MoveOn.org must have been able to pick the date of its advertisement, or had been given “preferential treatment” on the timing, because news organizations were discussing the advertisement before it ran.

MoveOn has effectively stabbed the Democrats in the back and the longer the Democratic leadership avoid taking a stand either for or against MoveOn, the worse this is going to get for them in the eyes of America.

WHO SHOULD AMERICA LISTEN TO?-A decorated soldier’s commitment to defending America, or Hillary Clinton’s commitment to defending MoveOn.org?”

Indeed.

Good for you Rudy. Well done.
