I remember back in the Bush Administration when Democrats would complain if anyone in the Administration said or did anything to suggest that somehow, someway, Democrats lack patriotism.
With that background in mind, consider Leon Panetta’s statement that Dick Cheney seems to want an attack on the United States to occur so that any attack will validate the former Vice President’s views on national security.
Isn’t this precisely the same kind of behavior Democrats complained about in the past? Of course.
Will Democrats condemn such comments? Of course not.
Will their behavior be hypocritical in refusing to condemn such comments? You bet.
