At the core, we are dealing with two parties that have fundamentally different views on national security," Rove said. "Republicans have a post-9/11 worldview and many Democrats have a pre-9/11 worldview. That doesn't make them unpatriotic -- not at all. But it does make them wrong -- deeply and profoundly and consistently wrong."
--Washington Post story on Rove's speech to the Republican National Committee
Look, it's simple: When is a Democrat going to have the guys to say this in a speech? "Karl Rove says his party has a 9/11 mentality and some in our party have a pre-9/11 mentality. Well, when it comes to terrorism, Mr. Rove has a first-Tuesday-in-November mentality. He looks at terrorist attacks and thinks, 'How can I exploit this for votes?'"
