Harry Reid: Working Overtime For Failure In Iraq

Harry Reid: Working Overtime For Failure In Iraq
By Lorie Byrd

Wednesday Reid, along with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, told the President that his surge policy is a failure. The two wrote in a letter to the President, “As many had forseen, the escalation has failed to produce the intended results.”

Never mind that all of the surge troops are not even in place yet. Never mind that Reid and Pelosi don’t want to give those troops even the opportunity to produce results. Never mind that the report on the progress of the surge is not to be made until September. Democrats cannot afford to wait for results...

Harry is a true work isn't he? I don't think he'll win re-election. Do you remember what happened to the pasty-faced Tom Dashle when he tried to be Ted Kennedy II? The people of Nevada will send his MISERABLE, loathful carcass packing come next election.

I'll see you Monday night. We're going to New Jersey to see my brother's new house and tonight we'll be in Yankee Stadium watching Roger Clemmons pitch against the Mets. Slay the leftist dragon DONAL! Adios!

"Any law that harms the Constitution hurts Americans in the end."

Lets keep that in mind when we talk about habeas corpus and other Constitutionally guaranteed rights that Morgan and others so willfully discard.

Sheesh...Even Peggy Noonan has finally gotten a clue!

"The White House doesn't need its traditional supporters anymore, because its problems are way beyond being solved by the base. And the people in the administration don't even much like the base. "

Maybe because the 'base' is not very likeable.

"This White House thinks its base is stupid and that its heart is in the wrong place."

She said it, not me...

"The beginning of my own sense of separation from the Bush administration came in January 2005, when the president declared that it is now the policy of the United States to eradicate tyranny in the world, and that the survival of American liberty is dependent on the liberty of every other nation. This was at once so utopian and so aggressive that it shocked me. For others the beginning of distance might have been Katrina and the incompetence it revealed, or the depth of the mishandling and misjudgments of Iraq."

Wow!

LES--Yes, that would be you--a Demmie--who is all concerned about whether your base is 'likable (and if you're not, than why should you think WE would be?) You have no clue to who or what the Republican base is.

Most of us conservatives support the war in Iraq--it's the immigration bill--crafted by ol' Splash--that we are so against (as are many Dems). Most of us--if not all--are far too mature to wonder if 'our base' is liked--that's an absurd and juvenile concept to even entertain.

You all need to grow up.

As one Leftist said at DU "We wouldn't like Bush even if he discovered the cure for cancer!" I believe that--but what a pathetically small thing upon which to base your politics!

"That's right. In a democracy with civilian control of the military, criticism of the top brass is not only appropriate, it's necessary. It's what you get from people who actually care about how well the military works and whether our soldiers have the right leadership.

Conversely, what is despicable is drive-by smears from blogosphere point-scorers who try to pretend that criticism directed at the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff amounts to "antimilitary slurs." That's nothing more than a desperate libel from the crowd that apparently thinks that pro-war and pro-military are the same thing. Even for them, though, you'd think that how the war was fought would matter to them."

Probably some cheetos eating, basement dwelling, 15 year old. Sheesh Donal, talk about the ultimate in cherry picking!

By the way, I loved Seattle! Wonderful city. Could you feel my presence?

Les and Cherry Picking


Les, my man, you could use a rifle from 1000 yards away with a stiff crosswind and still hit gems like the one you mention over at DU with each and EVERY SHOT! There are alot of cheeto eating basement dwellers over there.

Heck, the stuff after Falwell died and Cheney needed a new pacemaker battery were downright insane. They will need trouser cleanups aplenty if Cheney were to die.


They are a sick bunch...but I love reading their crap.

LES--At DU, there are so many who agreed with that post about Bush --and the ones PHAN mentioned about Cheney and Falwell were so numerous--I didn't have anywhere near the space to post them.

Also, of course criticize anyone in gov/head of the army etc. However, you Demmies are so over-blown and unfair in your past criticisms (you've conspicuously lied and manufactured things--your nasty WAY past needing to be) that ALL of your criticism is now devalued and must be put down.

If you're not taken seriously, it is a problem of your own making. You hype the slightest thing SO much, NOTHING you say is given any credence.
