Comments

Didn't Kevin Drum post something along these lines not long ago?

Well, we can compare and contrast the comments here and at PA.

So far, not a single person has mentioned my favorite bit:

"I think we are welcomed. But it was not a peaceful welcome."

I mean, that's just one of those classic Bush moments, but I suspect it's about to sink unnoticed below the waves.

It does give insight into George W. Bush's thinking and his speaking style, doesn't it? I mean, what is his definition of "to welcome"? One thinks also of what a "heck of a job" is or who "folks" are.

I'm glad the good folks came out and voted in Iraq today.

I'd say they welcomed voting. and our servicemen&women have done a heck of a job!
credit where it's due.

Let's not forget "Whether or not it needed to happen, I'm still convinced it needed to happen."

credit where it's due

no question. our troops are doing us proud.

well, one question, not about the troops: if, in 2002, Bush had asked the American public for permission to invade, occupy and rebuild Iraq in the name of spreading democracy, would he have received permission ? 70% ?

yes, the election is good news. but it's not what the public signed-off on in 2002. maybe it's the best we can hope for now, but it shouldn't excuse the fnck-ups that got us here.

remember, Tookie did good things later in life, but he was still held accountable for his previous failures.

nonetheless, good for our troops - bring them home, ASAP.

DaveC.:

I'm glad the good folks came out and voted today in Iraq, too.

I'm glad the President let us know the intelligence justifying the invasion was bad.

Not that it mattered, apparently.

Intelligence is no longer required. Winking is sufficient. In which case, abolish the C.I.A, the F.B.I., and cancel the Patriot Act.

Time to nuke Peking and put a bullet in Chavez's brainstem. Why? Who cares?

The ends justify the means. I tell my son this every day. He looks at me like I'm nuts, which I am. Then I tell him DaveC agrees with me and he smiles and goes forth into the world and lies to girls. For the sake of democracy.

Because the world needs sociopaths and pychopaths to bring democracy to fruition.

Not that this has anything to do with you DaveC. I separate the man and his comments. ;) Which I hope the rest of you do to, for my sake, and for the sake of voters throughout the world. Even the dead ones.


"I think we are welcomed. But it was not a peaceful welcome. There were some in society, rejectionists and the Saddamists and the terrorists that have moved in to stir them up that said, "We're going to prevent a democracy from emerging." But I think a lot of people are glad, I know a lot of people are glad we're there. And they're glad we're helping them train their troops so they can take the fight."

Nothing wrong with that statement. It requires a deceitful partisan to truncate it to make it useful.

Do you really think you can actually get away with this sort of crap? Still? In this age, with this sort of audience?

But I think a lot of people are glad, I know a lot of people are glad we're there. And they're glad we're helping them train their troops so they can take the fight.

Yeah, the Shiites are very glad that we're helping them to train their troops so that they can take the fight ... to the Sunnis.

I wonder how much longer Scotty can keep his absurd BS up. He must know how much of an idiot he looks like when BushCo keeps putting him in these positions - I imagine he's just seething with resentment and one of these days he is just going to blow his top and start yelling "Of course it doesn't make any logical sense, we've been doing these confrences for the last 3 years together, haven't you people figured out yet that they just don't care about logic?!!?"

No one's picked up on my favorite recently-- Condoleeza Rice's Chief of Staff (IIRC) complaining in WaPo that the food on Air Force 2 was so bad as to constitute inhuman treatment in violation of the Geneva Convention.

The important point is that we we let these people keep their head in the sands.

This can only help the Republicans in 2006.

The liberals have been wrong about every election since 2000. Funny how after 6 years so many still think they are right about everything.

Yeah, since we were wrong as to how low the Republicans would sink, we've gotta be all wrong about this whole torture shtick, eh?
