This is what these asshats want-, and I am damn surprised that finally someone fought back. And guess who it was- the left’s favorite member of the administration. Rep. Brown looked like he was about to cry when Powell shot back at him. Here is the exchange, and I highly recommend watching it if you have not:
Powell fielded the assertions calmly, defending the president’s judgment and his own.
But when Brown contrasted Powell’s military experience to Bush’s record with the National Guard, saying the president “may have been AWOL” from duty, Powell exploded.
“First of all, Mr. Brown, I won’t dignify your comments about the president because you don’t know what you are talking about,” Powell snapped.
“I’m sorry I don’t know what you mean, Mr. Secretary,” Brown replied.
“You made reference to the president,” Powell shot back.
Brown then repeated his understanding that Bush may have been AWOL from guard duty.
“Mr. Brown, let’s not go there,” Powell retorted. “Let’s not go there in this hearing. If you want to have a political fight on this matter, that is very controversial, and I think it is being dealt with by the White House, fine, but let’s not go there.”
The political hack tried to get a cheap shot about Bush in the Congressional Record, and Powell handed him his ass. Watch the video- look at the expression on Brown’sface. Like the rest of the lying, loudmouthed truth bullies, he backed down at the first sign of a fight. Loser Democrats- can’t win on the issues, so they sink to this shit. Theythought they finally had an issue with this tawdry smear campaign, and all they have done is get my dander up. Fools brought another knife to a gunfight.
BTW- I can’t wait for Kerry’s voting record to come out. Should be fun watching him squirm.
