Republicans (and Lieberman) Fail Afghanistan Test
Posted by Patrick Barry
Tonight, two leaders of the Republican Party and one Democrat who has lost his way failed their rhetorical test on National Security by failing to mention the war in Afghanistan. Not once did they draw attention to the fight against the Taliban. Not once did they focus on the problem of a resurgent Al Qaeda. After a month that saw the 500th U.S. casualty there, President Bush, Fred Thompson, and Joe Lieberman highlighted the Republican's party national security deficit, a deficit I dear will grow worse under a President McCain.
