Clooney smacks down the Democrats

By | March 18, 2006

Apparently, if the Democratic leadership isn’t going to speak out against the Bush administration, then George Clooney is going to speak out against the Democratic leadership:

“The fear of (being) criticized can be paralyzing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the war,” Clooney said Monday in a profanity-laced posting on The Huffington Post blog site.

“In 2003, a lot of us were saying, `Where is the link between Saddam and bin Laden? What does Iraq have to do with 9/11?”’ Clooney wrote. “We have to agree that it’s not unpatriotic to hold our leaders accountable and to speak out.”

This is so very true. But I can’t just feel sorry for the Democrats. It is up to them to make a stand against the administration. The mood of the country has changed, the Democrats need to grow a spine and lead.
