The Incredible Morphing Party

Troop Morale

The Good...

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility -- I welcome it.
-- John F. Kennedy

"A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers"
-- John Kennedy

The Bad...

We want to support our troops because they didn't make the decision to go there... but I don't think it should be open-ended....
-- Ted Kennedy

The Ugly...

Shamefully we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management.
-- Ted Kennedy

Al Qaeda really appreciates all your support, Ted. That is why you are a big hit on Al Jazeera.

National Defense
The Good...

When you see a rattlesnake poised to strike, you do not wait until he has struck before you crush him.
--Franklin D. Roosevelt

Four freedoms: The first is freedom of speech and expression - everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of everyone to worship God in his own way, everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want . . . everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear . . . anywhere in the world.
--Franklin D. Roosevelt

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
-- John F. Kennedy

"It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war."
-- John Kennedy

The Bad...

Aggression unopposed becomes a contagious disease.
-- Jimmy Carter

Yeah. You are an expert on the the concept of 'unopposed', are you not Jimmy? Right at the very birth of modern Islamic extremism.

For two years, terrorist cells have been spreading like cancer cells. Any doctor who let that happen would be guilty of malpractice.
-- Ted Kennedy

We are all impressed by your comprehensive plan to destroy them Ted. Now what was it again?

"The American people and our brave troops deserve better than a photo-op for the president and a pep-rally about Iraq. They deserve a plan. Unfortunately, today's event only served to highlight the fact that the president refuses to engage in a frank conversation about the realities on the ground."
-- Harry Reid

So, where is that plan Harry? You know, the one You, Kerry and Kennedy have come up with.

I'll never give a veto to any country over our security.
-- John F. Kerry

Something tells me he doesn't really mean it...

The Ugly...

I'm an internationalist. I'd like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations.
-- John F. Kerry

...Yep. He didn't really mean it.

It's better to send in the Peace Corps than the Marine Corps.
-- Edward Kennedy

So that's how you stop the spread of terror cells. Free medicine, food and hostages to boot! If I were cancer, I would set up section 8 housing right in your lymph nodes, Ted.

Domestic Crisis

The Good...

"For of those to whom much is given, much is required"
-- John Kennedy

"And so, my fellow Americans, ask not, what your country gives to you, but what you can give to your country."
-- John Kennedy

It is common sense to take a method and try it; if it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
--Franklin D. RooseveltQuite right, FDR; specifically that admit failure part.

The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today; Let us move forward with strong and active faith.

--Franklin D. Roosevelt

The Bad...

Instead of talking about ways to save Social Security, Republicans are talking about a plan that will destroy it.

-- Harry Reid

Another Democrat, presenting his own innovative idea to cure the impending insolvency of Social Security. See FDR above, for motivation, regarding self admission and moving on with faith.

The Ugly...

What the American people have seen is this incredible disparity in which those people who had cars and money got out and those people who were impoverished died.
-- Edward Kennedy

Right. What a nice responsible quote, to rally the hopes of the people, before the bogus MSM told you that thousands never actually died. Now about that car thing... I know a certain young woman who had the benefit of a car, a date with money and she never got out. She died. You wouldn't know anything about that would you Ted?

John Kerry reporting for Doody

Governor Dean has no policy on Iraq evidently, except 'no.' 'No' is not a policy.
-- John F. Kerry

The truth is, if the Bush Administration had come to the United States Senate and acknowledged there was no slam dunk case that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, acknowledged that Iraq was not connected to 9/11, there never would have even been a vote to authorize the use of force -- just as there's no vote today to invade North Korea, Iran, Cuba, or a host of regimes we rightfully despise.
-- John Kerry

So 'No' really is a policy isn't it John?

Women's Rights and Dignity

The Good...

"I am the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris, and I have enjoyed it." -- John Kennedy regarding his wife

The Bad...

I have often wanted to drown my troubles, but I can't get my wife to go swimming.
-- Jimmy Carter regarding his wife

Hey Jimmy, give your friend Ted Kennedy a call. He can help you out in this area...Ahem...

The Ugly...

"you'd better put some ice on that"
-- Bill Clinton's first aide advice to Juanita Broderick, after assaulting her.

Dad, I'm in some trouble. There's been an accident and you're going to hear all sorts of things about me from now on. Terrible things.
-- Ted Kennedy regarding his date

Parting Gifts

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
-- John Kennedy

"I didn't leave the Democratic Party. It left me."
-- Ronald Reagan
You know Gipper, I can see exactly what you mean.

I love these Right/Left posts! You've shown just how far the left has drifted from its more principled past.

Patriot Xeno said...

nice compilation

Uber said...

Very telling, and by their own words no less. Luckily for the right, the left will not listen to reason.

Almost feel sorry for them, until they speak anyhow.

Anonymous said...

Brilliantly done.

The Conservative UAW Guy said...

Well done, always.

Thanks! :)

Peakah said...

Good to see ya back... with all this time between posts you're really stoking the high expectations! *grin*

As usual you exceeded them! Nice work!

Visual reminders of the words that come out of the mouths of people are supposed to be representing us really exposes us to what (or rather for who) they really represent...

SK said...

An exceptional post! Thank you.

Ssssteve said...

Another great post!! Well done!!

Wyatt Earp said...

Fabulous as always! I was praying for a Chappaquddick photo, then BAM! there is was!

Insolublog said...

GunnNutt - I don't agree with a lot of the things FDR and JFK stood for, but they were a far better lot than what we see now.

Patriot - Thanks, and Welcome.

Uber - That really is the beauty of free speech; the freedom to use their prolific speech against them.

Morris - Thanks. I hope the what was it? Century heat? is not too oppressive.

CUG - As always jimmyb, I appreciate it.

Peakah - Yeah. Blogging has been tough lately.

SK - Thank you, for the exceptional comment.

Ssssteve - Thanks Ssssteve. I was going to say it sounds natural coming from my slithering reptile position, but it looks like I'm flapping again.

Wyatt - I aim to please! (I just hope to hit the target)
