Tony Snow fears far-left Liberals

Tony Snow proves what most already know--that Republicans are running scared following Ned Lamont's victory. Snow called Lamont's win 'a defining moment for the Democratic party'...but not in a good way.


"...If you disagree with the extreme left of the party, they're going to come after you...It is probably worth trying to trace through some of the implications of that position, because it is clearly going to be one of the central issues as we get ready for the election campaign this year..."
Issue # 1--Iraq. Snow breaks down 'why Democrats are wrong about leaving Iraq' into an easy to follow list:
1) "Walking away on a timetable...without making sure you have the ability for the Iraqis to stand up and assert sovereignty over their territory...would encourage terrorists, not only in Iraq but throughout the region and throughout the world."
Okay, so wanting a timetable for when troops can leave means you support terrorism. Ironically, VP Dick Cheney echoed this exact same sentiment. As reported by DemocracyNow!, Cheney called Lamont's victory 'an unfortunate development...that could possibly encourage Al Qaeda types.'
2) "It would create a failed state in the heart of the middle east with the second largest oil reserves in the world...Think about what happened in Afghanistan...a nation with far fewer resources...when it was able to serve as a terrorist training station ground..."
He's getting closer to the actual truth with his second point--oil.
3) "...it would inflict incredible damage on America's credibility..."
What credibility is he talking about? Didn't Bush crush it all, like, three years ago?
