But,but...I thought all the Libers were saying we need to give POTUS a chance since he hasn't been in office even a year yet!! And yet here he is, Mr. Super Anti-al Qaeda!!!!:DDemocratic strategists Wednesday asserted President Barack Obama "has been far more aggressive in fighting al Qaeda" than the previous administration .
In an e-mail this afternoon to supporters -- which incidentally excoriated Republicans for politicizing the attempted bombing of Flight 253 -- the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) stressed it was President George W. Bush, not his successor, who relegated the fight against the terrorist network to the back burner by turning "its focus from al Qaeda to Iraq."
Ultimately, the DCCC's charge on Wednesday is but a direct response to a new fundraising pitch by Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.) -- a petition Democrats say exploits the terrorism plot in an attempt to raise campaign dollars.
