    Chuck Schumer: U.S. 'Imposing' Elections on Iraq



    Sen. Charles Schumer is predicting failure for Iraq's democratically-elected government, complaining that the vote next week to determine the country's new parliament is being "imposed" on the Iraqi people by the U.S.

    "There will be no government in Iraq the way they're trying to structure it now," the New York Democrat told WABC-TV's "Behind the News" on Sunday. "They're going to have these elections but that's sort of being imposed on them."

    Schumer questioned the legitimacy of the Iraqi vote despite sky-high turnouts for the country's January and October elections, which saw a higher percentage of voter participation than in U.S. elections.

    Still, despite the stunning success of the two prior votes, Schumer painted a gloomy picture.


    "Let's face the music," he declared. "There's three groups in Iraq and they all hate one another - the Kurds, the Shiites and the Sunnis . . . As long as these three groups are asked to come together in an army, they're not going to fight as a cohesive force - and it won't be a cohesive government."
    Sen. Schumer's comments went almost completely unnoticed except for radio host Steve Malzberg, who railed against the pessimistic pronouncements while hosting the morning show on Washington, D.C.'s WMAL.

    "What is this?" he told his audience. "The election that's coming up, that we're all so proud of, is being forced upon the people? Zarqawi couldn't buy that kind of negative propaganda if he tried."

    What a f***ing doofus I have for a Senator... and he's the better of the two!!!

    Claiming that we imposed elections on the Iraqi people is like saying that we imposed liberty on the inmates at Auschwitz...

    The man is a walking pile of crap....

    Sounds like one of the arguments against homosexuals in the military.

    This is a lesson the American voter appears to have applied in five of the last six election cycles. So, why doesn't Schumer take his own advice - and go home, sit down, and shut up?

    I don't want him to go home... I want him to move away..... far, far away.... as in "A Galaxy far, far away.....".... New York has enough problems without that weasel calling it home....Better yet, he could jump in a volcano as a sacrifice to the god Vulcan, or maybe become the next NASA probe to one of the outer planets... as long as there isn't a way for him to come back!!!

    If I can't have that, I'd like that idiot to get a real job... he's been nothing but a politician since he left law school.... and our Junior Senator has been little else, too....

    Why don't the two of them get real jobs, and see what it's like to have to produce something tangible instead of a mountain of BS, have to work to bring home a paycheck, pay the bills, and have to live with the mountain of silly, instrusive regulations from the government?
