When it comes to fighting and capturing the real terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, a Republican raises the white flag.
"It's not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person."
That "one person" would be Osama bin Laden.
Of course, it's not the first time we've heard this. From the Commander in Chief himself:
Terror is bigger than one person.... So I don't know where he is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you.
Or how about this remark on the "war on terror":
"I don't think you can win it."
Republican presidents and would-be presidents sure sound like defeatists when it comes to combatting terrorism, don't they. Note to Rudy, it's the Republicans who are not serious about finding and capturing the terrorists. It's the Democrats who are insisting on it.
