Excerpt: "Markets without bombs. Hummers without guns.
Ice cream after dark. Busy streets without fear."
So began ABC's Terry McCarthy in his report from
Iraq as the war reached its sixth anniversary...
For a long time the foes of both the Iraq war
and the president who launched it insisted that none of this
was possible - that the war was lost, that there
was no military solution to the sectarian slaughter, that the
surge would only make the violence worse. Victory
was not an option, the critics declared; the only option
was to partition Iraq and get out. Time and again
it was said that the war would forever be remembered as
Bush's folly, if not indeed as the worst foreign
policy mistake in US history.
Even now, with a stubbornness born of partisan
hostility or political ideology, there are those who cannot
bring themselves to utter the words "victory"
and "Iraq" in the same sentence. But it is
ending in victory.
Killed in Suicide Attack on Iraqi Funeral
Excerpt: At least 25 people have been killed by a suicide
bomber in the Iraqi province of Diyala, police say.
Dozens of people are also reported to have been
hurt in the attack. It was the second bomb attack
in Iraq on Monday, with an earlier explosion
near the capital. Baghdad, killing at least eight people.
Hey Jeff, if Iraq is safe and Bush gets the credit for victory,
why don't you and Bush take
an announced trip to Baghdad
and walk thru the streets and go shopping at the bazaar?
Mike Pence says you can get a really good deal on rugs, there.
If you do that, I'll write "Iraq is a
safe place to visit, thanks to Bush."
Of course, it was much safer to visit before Bush invaded
and stole their oil...
"Take Michelle Obama...please. Every time I
turn around, there she is on a magazine cover. If the First Family gets a female
dog, will she be the First Bitch or will she have to settle for second
-- Bert Prelutsky, writing for The Christian Radio
"That's what Obama's married to. You know what
we've got? We've got trash in the White House."
-- Tammy Bruce, guest host for Laura Ingram's radio show, Link
I'd guess the Obamas expected this would happen, because that's
how the GOP works, but I worry about
the Left's acceptance and retention of these personal slurs.
The Democrats who were screaming "Mena Airport" last summer will soon be screaming "Michelle
the bitch" because Democrats tend to hate their heroes.
Tuesday, the President gave a press conference.
He has spoken to the press many times since he was elected.
Believe it or not, this used to be what most
every President did. They didn't have handpicked crowds who
signed loyalty oaths, they didn't confine most
speeches to military bases, and most of them were pretty decent orators.
They gave speeches, the press asked questions,
and we had some idea of what was happening.
The thing I want you to know is that this is the
way it should be.
Government gets pretty rotten when it is conducted
in dark rooms.
President Obama is allowing some sunshine in.
He has a long way to go,
but give him a chance. At least he is talking
Steve in Montana
And did you notice Obama was able to answer questions with precision
Bush generally would reply, "I'll have my
people look into that," because he was so stupid.
If Bush managed to remember the name of the Prime Minister of some land,
he'd smirk and puff his
chest out like he had just hit a home run - and the whore press coddled
him and told him he was great.
Excerpt: I'm starting to believe Michelle Bachmann isn't
actually a real politician at all, but instead, an unusually
gifted performance artist who's engaged in a
brilliant post-modern parody of an insane wingnut.
Over the weekend, she gave a radio interview to
Assrocket, and here's how she describes her blogging
and social media outreach as a member of Congress.
"I’m a foreign correspondent on enemy lines and
I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know
exactly the nefarious activities that are taking
place in Washington."
This is beyond unhinged. It sounds like a press
release from Stormfront.
Excerpt: In February, Bobby Jindal (Regressive) decried
funding for "something called 'volcano monitoring' " in Obama's
stimulus package, turning the geologic program
into a flash point for fiscal conservatives and raising the ire of scientists.
Yesterday, Democrats had a chance to reemphasize
just how stupid Jindal is after Alaska's Mount Redoubt erupted,
sending ash and steam nine miles into the air
and shutting down many flights at Ted Stevens (R-Convicted) Airport.
Twenty thousand passengers per day travel through
airspace affected by the volcano, officials said.
Has any Democrat pointed out how dangerous Republican priorities are?
Bobby Jindal thinks monitoring a about-to-erupt volcano is a waste
and if I had a bigger hammer I'd pound Jindal out of 2012 for being
But then, maybe Palin-Jindal would be a dream ticket - for Democrats.
Bart, I am a big fan of your "List the Facts"
Campaign. So I want to set the record straight on earmarks...
So here's a fact about Earmarks that you don't
An earmark is a congressional provision that directs
federal agencies to spend funds already authorized on specific projects.
If the funds aren’t earmarked, the agencies can
spend the money any way they see fit. That is, the executive branch,
rather than Congress, will determine how the
taxpayer’s money is spent.
Here's a link to an explaination of earmarks by
Ron Paul (R-Reality)
Elvis, you seem to think you're correcting something I got wrong.
I don't think I used the term "earmark" lately, but I maybe I did.
My complaint was the billions on pork that the Dems put in the stimulus
Their explanation was, "Some of our favorite
programs have been without funds for eight years so we had to spend this money
in an effort to catch up."
Maybe that spending was needed, maybe not, but why prove the Rethugs
when they say "All the Democrats want to do
is spend, spend, spend?"
Sometimes in a PR war, the phrase used the most turns into a fact.
Obama is fighting the Rethugs, the whore press and the backstabbing
not to mention the foolishness and treachery of cowards like Pelosi
If Obama suddenly said, "Fuck it,"
resigned and turned everything over to Biden,
who could blame him?
"Obama inherited an ungodly mess: a $1.2 trillion
deficit, an economy that was careening from recession into depression. That's not to mention Iraq, Afghanistan,
Iran, North Korea and the Mexican drug war. If this were "Sesame
Street," the announcer would be saying,
'This program brought to you by the letters G, O and P.' "

"America gives Hillary high marks as secretary
of State so far...a new poll has her at 71% approval, besting Obama's 64%. With all
the headaches facing Obama these days, Hillary's consolation prize is actually looking like a pretty nice
little gig...for now."

Sent from Jon's BlackBerry
Jon, you speak the truth.
Trouble is, we can't get the Dems to speak it, so the GOP's characterization
is what makes the headlines and that lie could easily make it into
the history books.
Maybe the Democrats expect voters to read five newspapers a day and
hold a roundtable discussion to get into all the minutia - but they
have no time for that.
Excerpt: On March 20, only two months after the cosmic
anointing, Vanity Fair, of all people, unloaded on Barack Obama,
in the terms it had reserved for the likes of
George W. Bush. Well, not the whole magazine, but one of its writers,
media writer Michael Wolff, took an axe to the
president, in a posting beginning “Sheesh, the guy is Jimmy Carter,”
ending “This guy is leaden and this show is in
trouble,” and titled “Barack Obama is a Terrible Bore.”
The same day, ex-fan Piggy Noonan called him “insubstantial
and weightless...not fully focused...jumping from issue
to issue and venue to venue from day to day.”
“The administration’s difficulties...have created an unfortunate impression
of incompetence,” said The Economist. Politico
noted that his skills as a salesman have begun to desert him.
It all came at the end of what Rick Klein of ABC
News called Obama’s 'lost week', which got worse on Sunday,
when he was attacked by the New York Times in
three columns and one editorial. One warned of an oncoming
fall of "Katrina dimensions." And these were
First, blow me.
Second, yes, it was a bad couple of weeksr, but these pundits seem to
think they're at some movieplex where, if they
don't like the film they're watching, they can go to the next theater
and see if that movie is any better. We're in trouble
and things aren't going to get any better if they attack the guy in
charge of getting us out of Bush's ditch.
Too bad so many Democrats have deserted Obama in his first inning.
Excerpt: The chorus of criticism of Obama's economic
plan has been almost deafening, and it isn't coming from Republicans but
Sure, the Republicans are engaging in scare tactics
about tens of trillions in deficits, but it's the liberal naysayers such
as New York
Whore Times columnist Paul Krugman who've been
the real critics.
They should lay off...Will Obama rescue the economy?
Yes, he can. But not if the Democrats try to
stop him first.

Then Orton hit him with a sledgehammer. I'm going to repeat that again, just to be clear: To wrestling fans,

Excerpt: Senator Evan Bayh (D-Backstabber) is forming
a caucus of "moderate" Senate Democrats hoping to soak up
special interest cash in exchange for blocking
Obama's agenda. He announced the formation of this group on Morning
to acclaim from Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan.
It’s nice to see that Bayh isn’t even pretending that what he’s advancing
is some alternative vision of progressive change
- it’s something he expects, rightly, die-hard rightwingers to find pleasant.
The hilarious catch, however, is that when Bayh
was asked to name the members of his new Obstruction Caucus he couldn’t
name them all. Apparently “three or four”
members of the group are part of a Chickenshit Subcaucus who want to block
change America needs but don’t want to be publicly
identified as belonging to the group! After all, Barack Obama is popular!
And his agenda is popular! So if you choose to
oppose it, you might face political problems. So better to keep the sabotage
What are we going to do about this Republican in Democratic clothing?
Bayh is setting himself up as the leader of the
"I hate Obama" Democrats and that's scary
because Democrats are inclined to hate their heroes anyway and this
just adds fuel to the fire.
