Nikki Haley Attacks Democrats

Two nights ago former ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, took out after Democrats on the Sean Hannity Show. She attacked their pathetic response to the assassination of Qasem Soleimani. Basically, she pointed out that only one group outside of Iran is mourning the death of Soleimani; that would be American Democrats.

In so doing Haley showed clearly why she is the front runner to be the first female American president.

Matt Margolis offers a transcript of her remarks (via Maggie's Farm):

President Trump's former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley dropped a real truth bomb on Monday evening, by saying that Democrats are "mourning" the death of Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in an airstrike ordered by President Trump last week.

"You don't see anyone standing up for Iran," Haley said. "You're not hearing any of the Gulf members. You're not hearing China. You're not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates," Haley said during her appearance on Sean Hannity's show. "This was something that needed to be done and should be celebrated. And I will tell you right now, partisan politics should stop when it comes to foreign policy. This is about America united."

To keep the record straight Margolis reports on the Democrat response:

Democrats who have issued statements about the death of Soleimani have typically acknowledged how evil he was, while still condemning Trump for ordering the strike that killed him. Ilhan Omar was predictably outraged, accusing Trump of "assassinating" a foreign official. Pete Buttigieg said Soleimani "was not a good guy" but said killing him was an "extremely provocative act."

Soleimani is believed to be responsible for the deaths of over 500 Americans.

Andrew Yang, who is occasionally a reasonable-sounding Democrat, even said that Trump's ordering of the airstrike is why Trump should be "out of office." Joe Biden, a 30-year failure when it comes to foreign policy, blamed Trump for authorizing the "hugely escalatory" airstrike. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders also joined in the poopooing of the airstrike, because the death of a terrorist is apparently something they can't celebrate.

It isn’t just that they cannot celebrate the death of a terrorist. They are incapable of celebrating America.

Daniel Moynihan, Henry Jackson, John Kennedy, and Harry Truman seem a long, long, long time in the past.

This was the last man standing, and this was also the moment when the party said it had no more use for a guy like this.

I think Webb would have beat Trump. But the Democratic Party had become the Intersectional Socialist Party.

One more reason for me to despise and detest Dems, not that I NEEDED another.

Great list of names, Ubu. I have one more to add:

Tim Russert

There is no one in the big news media that has a fair, hard-working approach to political coverage like Russert did. No one. Chuck Todd, a successor to Russert's run at the helm of "Meet the Press," is an ass.

Chuck Todd is an emasculated rodent. Tim Russert was a good man.
