Parsing the stupidity

Patriotism now haunting Republicans

leave a comment »

Remember when Democrats and leftists bemoaned Republican and conservative questioning of their patriotism for not supporting the Iraq war and/or war on terror?

In the past couple of weeks, we’ve had Democrats pull the same line on Republicans, except it’s not lack of support for the military and national defense that makes one unpatriotic.  Rather, it’s not backing increased government intrusion into the market and higher taxes.

First Joe Biden said it was patriotic to pay higher taxes.  This past weekend Nancy Pelosi called Republicans ‘unpatriotic’ for not attending a bailout bill meeting (a meeting they weren’t invited to, mind you).

What a telling difference between how the two sides define patriotism.
