MSM Helps Dems Throw Fit:
White House Hostility To Iraq Report Grows
Administration officials say their preliminary review of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group's recommendations has concluded that many of its key proposals are impractical or unrealistic, and a small group inside the National Security Council is now racing to come up with alternatives to the panel's ideas.
In interviews over the last two days with officials from the White House, the State Department, the Pentagon and foreign diplomats, Bush and his top aides were described as deeply reluctant to follow the core strategy advocated by the study group: to pressure Prime Minister Nouri Kamal al-Maliki to rein in sectarian violence faced with reduced U.S. military and economic support.
Here's a sampling of their comments about it:
--What's scary is this madman (Bush) has nukes at his finger-tips... that should make the entire world quake with worry. (donheld)
--There is really only ONE explanation that fits this situation. George W Bush is in the employ of the Saudi Arabian royal family and his (their) ultimate goal is the total destruction of the military machine of the United States of America. We have been sold out by a puppet of the international oil cartel who cares not one whit about you or I or the United States of America. The Vandals are at the gates of Rome and our only hope lies in the chicken-livered Congress of the United States. God help us. (Lord Balto)
--W will need to be impeached. We don't need more of our troops dying. (Erika)
--If it becomes unpopular or even unstylish to support the war anymore, I'll take it. If Paris Hilton climbs on the bandwagon, I'll welcome her. Hell, if K-Fed does, same thing. I don't care at this point. I'm only interested in the numbers. HOW MANY of these can we bring into the fold? HOW MANY? We need a LOT. Looks like one-by-one they're starting to come aboard. As long as they get onboard, I don't care what motivated them. (calimary)
--I am concerned that, if Impeachment becomes inevitable, the the little fellow in the big chair will arrange for another 9/11 or worse incident to happen, at which point he will declare martial law, and put the big kibosh on any chance of successfully getting him or any of his cronies out of office (StephenB48)
--At this point, whatever gets rid of them works for me. WHATEVER does it. Even more beautiful if they'll have done it to themselves. Their hubris and close-mindedness and stubbornness will be their undoing, I hope. And the more intractable they become, the better. Because it'll piss off more people and push them away - and into OUR waiting arms. And soon we'll have numbers behind us SO large that they're unavoidable, unignorable, and completely veto-proof. (calimary)
--He's delusional is what he is. He is now on a par with Kim Jong Il, but dumber and possibly more dangerous. He needs to be locked up. Immediately. (smirkymonkey)
--He knows this war is lost. He's setting the dems up to make them look as they are the ones who is responsible for losing the war. (B Calm)
--The war's funding will have to be cut, or else this guy will have to be impeached. Both need to happen. We need to reduce our troop strength to about 10,000 soldiers. Right now. All engineers--combat engineers, bridge crewmen, carpenters, plumbers and electricians.Leave them there to fix what Bush broke, and get everyone else home. Then impeach Shrub and all his minions. Make Jimmy Carter president. Just get Bush OUT of there. (jmowreader)
You can see that it's Loon City day at DU. Fancy they assert that 'two-thirds of Americans support the ISG and want to see it implemented'! The average American hasn't read it--and couldn't make heads or tales of it if they did... AND YOU CAN'T IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU DISAGREE WITH HIM!
Hezbollah has just called for the complete destruction of Israel and the United States--and these terminal idiots are inventing Bush-paper tigers of their own. They haven't got enough sense to see the REAL threats to us.
