The Democrats Will Have to Be Detained

· dKo journal, Edgewise, Paleoblogs

I’ve put together a couple of things President Bush has revealed recently about the Democrats in Congress; it is awfully sobering, but very clear, what he is going to have to do.
(My italics.)
Bush: [I]f somebody from al Qaeda is calling into the United States…we need to know…what they’re planning …. 177 Democrats voted against listening in on terrorist communications…[they] said, you know, we don’t think we ought to be listening to the conversations of terrorists. Speech.
DKo:
My God, these Democrats are recklessly naive!
Bush: [T]he best way to deal with this enemy is to bring them to justice before they hurt the American people again….If you listen closely to some of the leaders of the Democrat Party, it sounds like…they think the best way to protect the American people is, wait until we’re attacked again. Speech.
DKo: Wait! Not damn well likely. Are they rooting for Al Qaeda? Al Qaeda couldn’t pay for such weakening of American defenses. It supports their hostilities very materially. Yet, the Democrats went ahead and purposefully voted against these measures.
So, let’s see–the Democrats have purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States.
But that means…

Whoa! Nearly half the US Congress are unlawful enemy combatants!
(Bush quotes cited in the Washington Post.)
Though the President will take no pleasure in it, he has no choice but to round them up instantly. As US citizens, they will be highly privileged over the other unlawful enemy combatants. They may have the right to habeas corpus, even possibly a trial. The Senators, at least, could be out well before the War on Terror is finally won.
I hope they appreciate the blessings of citizenship.
