‘Be­trayal’

The Washington Times Weekly - - Culture, Etc. -

“You know the is­sues of be­trayal that have an­gered con­ser­va­tive ac­tivists the most: amnesty plans for il­le­gal aliens, mas­sive fed­eral spend­ing, mul­ti­ple cor­rup­tion scan­dals, the pre­scrip­tion drug plan, Harriet Miers, etc.

“Even when it came to the war against ter­ror­ism there were too many times when cut-and-run voices man­aged to neuter the Bush ad­min­is­tra­tion from tak­ing the fight to the ter­ror­ists and ag­gres­sively sell­ing the case for war to the pub­lic. [. . .]

“Sadly, the Bush White House has taken ex­actly the wrong mes­sage from this elec­tion. Mr. Bush has de­cided he will ap­pease his crit­ics by fir­ing Sec­re­tary of De­fense Don­ald Rums­feld, a true war­rior who tried to fight the es­tab­lished bu­reau­cracy at the Pen­tagon. [. . .]

“It’s time to take the gloves off and fight for the cause we be­lieve in, even if that means fight­ing mem­bers from within our own fam­ily from time to time.”
