Dems imply Zell is a hypocrite

Now who’da thought THIS would happen? Dems are implying that Zell is a hypocrite because he praised Kerry back in March 2001.

But these same Dems apparently had no qualms salivating over General Wesley Clark, who’d praised President George W. Bush and his war cabinet just a year and a half before running for the Democratic nomination for president:

Soon after Clark emerged as a candidate for the Democratic nomination, the Republican National Committee released a videotape and transcript of a speech Clark had given May 11, 2001 for the Pulaski County Republican Party in Arkansas. Most of Clark ‘s address was a nonpartisan discussion of foreign policy, but Clark did say this:

“If you look around the world, there’s a lot of work to be done. And I’m very glad we’ve got the great team in office, men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Paul O’Neill – people I know very well – our president George W. Bush. We need them there, because we’ve got some tough challenges ahead in Europe.”

That was four months before the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and long before the invasion of Iraq that Clark now criticizes. A few weeks after speaking at the Republican event, Clark also attended the annual dinner of the Arkansas Democratic party in Little Rock, w here the Arkansas Gazette pictured him with Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln.

After US forces toppled the Taliban government in Afghanistan Clark praised Bush’s military leadership in another speech, also captured on videotape, to a university audience in Searcy, Arkansas in a speech on January 22, 2002:

“I tremendously admire, and I think we all should, the great work done by our commander-in-chief, our president, George Bush, and the men and women of the United States armed forces.”

Shortly thereafter, when he decided he wanted to run for president, he spared no time at all in dissing the President, and wouldn’t even deny the allegations put forth by Democrat darling Michael Moore that the President was “AWOL” and a “deserter” during Vietnam, instead saying that Moore “has the right” to say what he felt. Ummmhmm.

If Wes Clark can have a change of heart on the President, Zell Miller can have a change of heart on Sen. Kerry.

What comes around goes around!
