    I cannot remember such a bad week for libs and such a great week for Conservatives

    First, the libs lose the CA 50th election to replace the crook Duke Cunningham. The libs were so cocky they were going to take back the House and this election would be the beginning of the Dems return to power

    They lost. Republicans won the election and the libs were in disbelief

    Then the US military killed Zarqzwi and the libs acted like they were in mouring. After calling the military broken, accusing them of murder, and comparing them to Nazis, the military pulls off a brilliant operation and killed the most wanted terrorist in Iraq

    Then Pres Bush pulls off a secret trip to Iraq to meet with the newly elected governemnt in Iraq. The liberal media was shocked they were not told. To bad.

    Now the news comes out Karl Rove will not be charged with a crime. The libs had his orange jumpsuit all picked out and his cell ready at a Super Max prison.

    I hope the left has an extra large crying towel

    America votes with its wallet. Always has, always will. Check up on what Bush's Fed Chairman has done to the market with his big mouth.

    I hope it turns around not for GOP's sake, but for the sake of my family and everyother American family. If it does not, the Republicans will get spanked.

    Interesting...

    RSR is very quick to jump on every single move a liberal makes...yet he does not want to touch the failures that have haunted Ben Bernanke of late.

    A Comment from RSR:
    I do not think this ruins any liberal's week. I am glad Bush is in Iraq, if nothing else it may be a motivational boost for the new government.

    A Comment from the Globe and Mail:
    You seem to view everything as election ammunition RSR. When 401K's across America are in the toilet...I don't think anybody is going to care about the President's June visit to Iraq.

    Perhaps Bush should have appointed somone who realizes that conversations with journalists are never "off the record". It is also better to have a fed chairman who is going to speak with his actions, not with words of pessimism.

    Like I said, I hope the market turns around so that all of our families are not stressed by economic trouble...but the point remains, the stock market's tumble outweighs anything else.

    When the liberal media is in full spin mode I know things are good in America


    Zarqawi a Victim?
    Posted by Michael Rule on June 9, 2006 - 12:39.
    There has been some buzz in the email this morning about a question Pam Hess of UPI asked General William Caldwell in a briefing this morning. In her question, Hess referred to those who died in the air strike that killed the most wanted man in Iraq, including Abu Musab al Zarqawi himself, as victims. Her full question was:

    "General, this is Pam Hess of UPI. What's going to happen to Zarqawi's body after the autopsy? Does it get returned to Jordan to his family? And do you have anything on the identity of the others killed in the strike? And was it 6 victims including Zarqawi or was it 7?"

    A legitimate question, however, her word choice is unfortunate. Let us remember the true victims are the ones who were savagely murdered by Zarqawi and his network of thugs. Zarqawi and his associates killed along with him, are not victims here, rather, they are the recipients of justice.


    How Could Good News from Iraq Make So Many Bad Headlines?
    Posted by Greg Sheffield on June 9, 2006 - 11:50.
    If the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi were "good" news, it's hard to imagine how the media could report much worse for "bad" news in Iraq.

    Pretend Pundit has a good roundup of media headlines.


    One day after the killing of Al-Zarqawi, it's business-as-usual for the Drive-by Media. The Washington Post even ran a poll reminding us that we all think Iraq sucks.
    If I'm a Democratic strategist, I couldn't be happier. Here are this morning's top headlines:

    CNN: Al-Zarqawi is dead, violence continues
    CNN: Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was alive when U.S. troops first reached him after the airstrike on his safe house, a U.S. general said, according to news reports. Of course, there's got to be controversy. What did Rumsfeld know and when did he know it?

    Analyzing Victory Into Defeat
    Posted by Christopher Fotos on June 9, 2006 - 10:54.
    It's not necessary for reporters to agree that the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is a major victory. But they should let their readers know such people, outside the Bush Administration, exist.

    In After Zarqawi, No Clear Path In Weary Iraq by the Washington Post's Ellen Knickmeyer, every independent expert downplays the significance of Zarqawi's death. Even a mysteriously identified "longtime participant in the U.S. military hunt for Zarqawi" sees it as upside for the bad guys. Yet at least one of Knickmeyer's named sources is more upbeat in a different outlet, and she omits the passionate political convictions of another.

    Terrorist Zarqawi Dead, Media Suspect Foul Play
    Posted by Noel Sheppard on June 9, 2006 - 09:56.

    Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and all of al Qaeda’s leaders in Iraq and throughout the world laid down their arms and surrendered to American forces, would the media report it as good news?

    Judging from the initial press reaction to the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Iraq by the American military on Wednesday, the answer appears to be no.

    In fact, this tepid response to the death of the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq – a man who has at times in the past couple of years been depicted as more vital to this terrorist network than the currently in-hiding bin Laden – suggests quite disturbingly that America’s media are fighting a different war than America’s soldiers.

    According to NewsBusters, CNN’s senior editor for Arab affairs Octavia Nasr said the following about Zarqawi’s death on “American Morning” Thursday:

    "Some people say it will enrage the insurgency, others say it will hurt it pretty bad. But if you think about the different groups in Iraq, you have to think that Zarqawi's death is not going to be a big deal for them."

    However, CNN didn’t always feel that Zarqawi’s death or capture would be so inconsequential. Just days after Saddam Hussein was found in his spider hole, Paula Zahn brought CNN national correspondent Mike Boettcher on to discuss a new threat in Iraq. Zahn began the December 15, 2003 segment:

    The Dow was up over 100 points and the good economic news keeps coming in.

    I know being a liberal means drinking the Kool Aid and believing everything stinks, but try to kick the habit

    The market's decline in the past few weeks completely wiped out all of its gains from earlier in the year. While things were looking good, it looks as if the economy is going to lag.

    This is a perfect example of what red states rule is talking about. He puts out a list of squash jobs suffered by you libbies and how do you reply? With a defelction trying to blame something unrelated on Bush and/or his administration.

    It never ends .....
