Patriotism 101

Fron Kos:

"You can support the troops but not the president." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Well, I just think it's a bad idea. What's going to happen is they're going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years." --Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

"Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?" --Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

"[The] President . . . is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy." --Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)

"American foreign policy is now one huge big mystery. Simply put, the administration is trying to lead the world with a feel-good foreign policy." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy." --Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of George W Bush

"I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning . . I didn't think we had done enough in the diplomatic area." --Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

"I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our over-extended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today" --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is." --Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

Number of US servicemen and women killed from the Bosnia intervention: 0, zero, zip, nada.

Clinton: Mission Accomplished
Reward for Mission Accomplished - Impeachment.

Oh, Yeah, I forgot. It's about the lying.

Iraqi operatives continue to hide biological and chemical agents to avoid detection by inspectors. In some cases these materials have been moved to different locations every 12 to 24 hours, or placed in vehicles that are in residential neighborhoods.

Compassionate Conservatism 101

Sympathize with mothers whose sons died for your stupid little war, but don't let it be a drag on your life:

"But whether it be here or in Washington or anywhere else, there's somebody who has got something to say to the president, that's part of the job," Bush said on the ranch. "And I think it's important for me to be thoughtful and sensitive to those who have got something to say."
"But," he added, "I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life."


"I think the people want the president to be in a position to make good, crisp decisions and to stay healthy," he said when asked about bike riding while a grieving mom wanted to speak with him. "And part of my being is to be outside exercising."

Gee, what a compassionate guy, you can feel the symapthy he has for the grieving mother everytime he says, " Gee, sorry your kid got killed, now watch this drive...."

Batshit Nutcase Republican Beats Marine Democrat

Well, this will make me hopeful for America's Future

Here is Nov 2004 replayed over again: GOP slimes a war veteran, pours money into a campaign, and voters go to the polls to chose a loony, creepy nutcase who spouts such nonsense as blindly "standing beside our president" and "keep your eye on the ball, or else the ball will harm you".

Yet again, another case where I would choose not to "reach out" to my red-state american neighbors - I'd rather tell them to go choke on all of that "moral values-I'm more patriotic than thou-RushLimbaughSeanHannityAnnCoulterMichelleMalkin is my fucking superhero" bile and crap and just go PISS OFF!
