Kathleen Sebelius Hates America

Filed under: Defending America,Democratic Idiocy,Republicans — Sisyphus @ 3:10 pm

The Governor of Kansas has come out against the deployment of troops in Iraq.

This morning on CNN, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D) said that the state is missing vital National Guard equipment because of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Usually the state has approximately 70-80 percent of its equipment at any given time, but it currently has just 40-50 percent. She added that these shortages “will just make it [recovery] that much slower.”

This kind of talk emboldens our enemies, the terrorists. Who, but a terrorist or a Democrat, would think that abandoning the Iraqi people is a good thing for America?

Luckily, the White House retorted quickly:

White House press secretary Tony Snow said the fault was Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’.

In a spat reminiscent of White House finger-pointing at Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco after the federal government’s botched response to Hurricane Katrina, Snow rapped Sebelius for not following procedure to find gaps and then asking the federal government to fill them.

“If you don’t request it, you’re not going to get it,” he said.

Someday, Americans will learn not to elect Democrats governors of their states. Until then, they’re just going to have to get used to the fact that every once in a while the incompetence of those Democrats is going to affect them when catastrophe strikes. Elections have consequences, and foolish decisions can cost the people dearly.

  1. It’s this adminstration that is incompetent, inept and corrupt. I believe that Christ instructs us not to lie, and yet that’s what these people continue to do.

    The Governor DID request aid. The facts:

    dec. 30, 2005: sebelius writes to rumsfeld requesting new equipment.
    jan. 23, 2006: sebelius personally urges bush to increase national guard funding
    jan. 23, 2006: sebelius personally urges bush to increase national guard funding
    june 28, 2006: sebelius sends army secretary list of equipment lost in war
    sept. 2006: sebelius lobbies for replacement of national guard equipment sent to iraq
    feb. 27, 2007: sebelius pushes white house and congress for more funding.

  2. As the senior Senator from Kansas, does your candidate not also bear some responsibility for not taking federal action to combat these shortfalls?

    Perhaps this was a rhetorical question, but

    “Who, but a terrorist or a Democrat, would think that abandoning the Iraqi people is a good thing for America?”

    can be answered with “Republicans.” For the moment only two in each chamber of Congress (Senate: Hagel, Smith; House: Jones, Gilchrest) but without a doubt that number will rise as each Republican member finds it harder and harder to back an extremely unpopular war while running for re-election amid a presidential race their party is almost certain to lose.

  3. If Brownback doesn’t win or become V.P., I’d love to see him run for Governor of Kansas. He’d be a heckuva lot better than Sebelius, who accepts blood money from the infamous abortionist Tiller, and is very popular in Kansas. Love to see him win the nomination, but if he doesn’t, he could still do a lot of good as Governor.

  5. Well if it’s wrong to question the government, then why do we have elections?

    Wouldn’t an emperor rule much more efficiently?

  7. “Well if it’s wrong to question the government, then why do we have elections?

    Wouldn’t an emperor rule much more efficiently?”

    Questioning certain aspects of government, like taxation or ethical issues, is acceptable. For example, if it hadn’t been for patriotic Americans questioning Clinton, who knows what he might have gotten away with?

    On the other hand, questioning a government in wartime is treasonous. It hurts our troops, hurts our Commander-in-Chief, and emboldens our enemy. Iraq is a real war, not a fake little war like Haiti or Kosovo. The lesson of 9/11 is that when the grown-ups are in charge, the opposition needs to grow up and shut up.

  8. I’d say it’s everyone’s duty to question the government, even in wartime, because by your reasoning a government that is unpopular could just start a war if they don’t want to answer to the critics.

    When new information becomes available it is perfectly normal to adjust strategy or even retreat, nothing hurts the troops more than letting them die a pointless death in a pointless war.

    The military and the government have to know that somebody is watching them, that when they promise results and promise not to commit war crimes, somebody is going to keep them to those promises.
