You think I’m making that up? Think again.

  1. I will give this clown credit, at least he had the balls to say it. The rest of them dance around with their “we support those child murdering Iraqi raping troops”, and do everything that they can from positions of power to undermine the war, and then try to act like they hope for our success. Reid was honest when he said that nothing Gen. Petraeus said would change his mind that we had already lost. This asshat simply had the intestinal fortitude to publicly admit that which we already knew.

    Is it alright to question their patriotism yet?

  2. And isn’t it incredible he thought it was acceptable to say so?!

    The headline should read “Good News Dims Dems’ Surrender Plan.”

  3. I find it impossible to question the patriotism of someone who is demonstrably without it!

  4. This clip should be used in every single Republican advertisement from now until November 2008.

  5. The Iraq fiasco runs outta money on October 1st.

    In three days, Congress recesses until Septemeber 3rd.

    And the Senate is currently debating…providing health insurance to uninsured kids.

    Sounds like a great ad, JD.

  6. Yup, alphie. Next time the Republicans need political advise, they should just call you. I hope that Pelosi and Reid come back in September with some grand ideas. Apparently impeachment is off the table, because Pelosi could not get enough votes from her own caucus. I actually hope that they grow the stones to vote to de-fund the war, at least they would be being honest as to their intentions.

    You, on the other hand, are not.

  7. Why bother impeaching Bush, JD?

    He’s goin’ home to cut brush in a few months.

  8. The philosophical corruption of both parties is complete. The Democrats are as disgusting as the Republicans, but we have known that for decades. We need a change and Gingrich looks more and more appealing.

    Oh JD, don’t you have anything better to do than mentally masturbate? Political realities preclude this from being enacted, unless, Petraeus testifies that all is lost, and, by all accounts to date, that’s not going to happen.

  10. Whether or not it was wise to say what he said, at least he was honest. Good news on the war = bad news for the Dems.

    Moreover, it equals good news for Hillary, since she’s been the most vocal of the current D candidates as far as (tepid) support of the war. Bad news for Ron Paul on the other side. Good news for Rudy, and very good news for Fred.

    And dammit, good news on the war is good news for America.

  11. Clyburn: Good news on the war would be……

    …”a real big problem for us.” Meaning, of course, his cut-and-run cronies in the Dhimmicratic party. If you don’t believe me, look it up. (via Patterico):

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Monday that a strongly positive report o…

  12. Cheap shot, Patterico.

    I can’t say I blame you, though, given the state of affairs your own party is in.

  13. The problem with a highly positive report is that it would follow in the long tradition of overly-rosy lies that the Administration has proffered from Day One. I suppose it would have been bad for the Democrats if the insurgency really were in its last throes when Darth Cheney said so. But it wasn’t. The Administration’s descriptions of Iraq have the accuracy of tabloid horoscopes, if that.

    In those neighborhoods where our new forces are able to keep order, things are slightly better. In the parts of the country where we are now allied with Sunni tribes (basically, Saddam’s cousins without Saddam’s appreciation of secular vices), violence is directed at Al Qaeda in Iraq, but it’s not easy to see what strategic goal is being advanced.

    Rather than look for gotchas, you would do better to try to some up with a sensible, plausible explanation (that rules out Jim Rockford) for what we intend to do in Iraq and how the current tactics will accomplish it. Certainly with the Sunni bloc leaving the on-vacation Parliament there is little evidence our policy is effecting some political progress.

    I’m at the YearlyKos convention, so I don’t have too much more time to comment before my turn at the kitten-stomping room comes up.

  14. AJL – So you are proclaiming Gen. Petraeus a liar prior to his report even being issued?

    Have fun at YKos. Shout down a soldier or two. Big fun !

  15. Cheap shot, Patterico.

    I can’t say I blame you, though, given the state of affairs your own party is in.

    Accurate quotations are a “cheap shot”?

  16. Liberal Avenger, you don’t have a leg to stand on.

    Your party’s House whip said it, now your party can own it.

  17. Patterico – In the Left’s bastardization of language, quoting somebody verbatim is an attack or a smear.

    And whatever you do, don’t accept such an explanation from the guys who are actually running the show. BECAUSE THEY LIE!!!

    Anyone else rememeber when replacing Rumsfeld with Gates was a wonderful thing because of Gates’ frank, realistic assessment of the situation in Iraq? Anyone else remember the unanimous confirmation of Petreaus?
