Dems Speak No Evil Of Islamic Jihad

War On Terror:
If the New Hampshire debates settled anything, it's which party has the stomach to take on radical Islam.
The Democrats couldn't even identify the enemy.
Not once.

To hear them, you would think it was the 1990s again, when Democrats controlled the White House and the CIA and the Pentagon, and blew off Osama bin Laden after he and radical Islam declared war on the U.S.
You would think they hadn't just assassinated a former world leader. You would think they hadn't just issued a fatwah to assassinate our own president.
Republicans, on the other hand, called the enemy by its proper name.
The candidates referred to terrorists and terrorism as "Islamic," while also citing radical "Islam" as the problem, no less than 22 times. For example:
• Rudy Giuliani argued the U.S. must stay "on offense against Islamic terrorism."
• Mike Huckabee said the source of the threat we face is from the "radical Islamic faith." "This is an Islamic problem," he said. "This is a jihadist problem. This is an Islamofascism problem."
Huckabee elaborated: "They are prompted by the fact that they must establish a worldwide caliphate that has nothing to do with us other than we live and breathe, and their intention is to destroy us."
• John McCain warned that "the transcendent challenge of the 21st century is radical Islamic extremists."
• Mitt Romney said the "philosophy of radical jihadism says, 'We want to kill.' "
• Fred Thompson asserted, "We are in a global war with radical Islam. They declared war on us a long, long time ago. We took note, really, for the first time on Sept. 11, 2001."
