Flip-Flop - Another Rove Trap

Karl Rove said last night at a fundraising dinner that the liberals in America missed the fact that 9/11 was a war declaration, and offered the terrorists therapy and understanding. Per the NYT, (all articles cited here are from Drudge) here are his words:
Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers...

Note that he criticized liberals, not Democrats. Unimpressed by what was most certainly a deliberate distinction, the Senate Dems went mad. Since when does a "liberal" reference offend or even implicate these self-proclaimed moderates? Nonetheless, they are calling for his head.

One question. Where were these all of a suddenly vocal individuals when Dick Durbin compared our soldiers to Nazis, Khmer Rouge or KGB? Or did it take what they perceived (and probably reasonably so) as attack on them--politicians (contrasted with soldiers who voluntarily live and work in dangerous conditions for the benefit of their countrymen) for them to find their voices?

Stop talking before you embarrass yourselves even further. Rove got you again.
