Is this what you and I voted for last week?
Does this reflect the will of the vast majority of the people of this country who said that we should start drawing down our troops and redeploying them and our “political leadership” should start acting like adults for a change and make SOME gestures towards regional cooperation with neighboring countries?
This is a great big “F.U.” from Bushco aimed right at the new Democratic congress (in lieu of the REAL war this will perpetuate, this is certainly the first shot in a new political war).
Oh, but Dubya is “energizing the base,” isn’t he?
Well, I have news for “the base”… you were a non-factor in the last election. And really, by yourselves, you were a non-factor in 2000 and 20004 also. Without the moderate/swing/values voters (or whatever they’re being called this week by Time and Newsweek), you people would have gotten NOTHING.
And given the ruin that has been wrought by this sick joke of an administration, I think it will be a LONG time before any kind of moderate vote sides with you ever again.
Update: I can't think of anything else to say about this scumwad except to echo the sentiments of the YouTube commenter for this moving video from Peace Takes Courage who said that they wished George W. Bush had never been born.
Update 11/19: For someone who is ostensibly a conservative, I have to give Fareed Zakaria credit for (perhaps) being the only one of his political persuasion who knows what is going on in Iraq.
