Texas Democrats enticed retired General Ricardo Sanchez to run for the Democrat nomination for U.S. Senate in Texas; current Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is retiring.
Striking aspects of General Sanchez's recruitment:
1. The Democrats recruited a military officer who oversaw the coalition forces in the Iraqi War.
2. General Sanchez carries some burden, if not responsibility, for the conditions and detainment of enemy combatants in the Abu Gharib prison.
3. The Democrats may have just substantially strengthened the primary candidacy of David Dewhurst.
Is it not stunningly hypocritical for national and Texas Democrats to solicit the General who ran a huge part of the war in Iraq after viciously attacking President Bush and then Republican nominee McCain as "unfit for office", "traitors" and "war criminals"?
How can Democrats go back to their faithful troops (no pun intended) and now ask them to rally around the General who was on the ground running that war that they so vilified?
Is the value of a Hispanic surname and military credentials so valuable to Democrat general election efforts in Texas that they'll sacrifice their integrity and political principles?
Imagine a general election campaign commercial using the photos from Abu Gharib, ouch. Texas and national Democrats may now be spelled H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E-S for this one.
