Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld...Stuff 'em all in a barrel and roll it down a hill, there'll always be a son-of-a-bitch on top. But I digress.

Earlier this week, the Admninstration rolled out its new fall line of bullshit to try and convince voters that Republicans are the only ones fit to govern. It was difficult to decide which speech was more delusional and divorced from reality though.

Rummy was first at bat, claiming that any who oppose the Administration's policy or, more appropriately...lack thereof...in Iraq were morally and intellectually confused. The implication being that the Bush administration can do no wrong in Iraq or in the effort to contain and cotrol terrorism. Such hubris is a sign of a profound isolation from the reality onm the ground in Iraq and utter denial of the misjudgements, missteps, prevarication and arrogance that led to the invasion of Iraq to begin with.

Darth Cheney was next in the hole, and he did little better. Those 50 million people we supposedly liberated are facing a resurgence of the Taliban and Sharia law in Afghanistan. And Iraqi citizens now have Shi'ite theocrats, with ties to Iran heading up their government. Cheney's claims that Iraq is "...The central front in this war (on terrorism)..." is specious at best. He conveniently left out the fact that the terrorists weren't operating in Iraq until we deposed Saddam, disbanded the Iraqi army and failed to send in enough troops to secure Iraq and its borders.

Last up was Chimpy McPresident, George W. Bush, himself. His "...Bold new agenda..." to undercut terrorism by "...Supporting the forces of freedom in the Middle East..." has hit a little snag called <b>R-E-A-L-I-T-Y</b>. The reality of the matter is that the invasion of Iraq has destabilised the Middle East. We did Iran a HUGE favor by removing the thorn of Saddam from their side. With our troops tied down in the internecine struggle between Shi'a and Sunni in Iraq, Iran has a free hand to exercise its foreign policy strategies. Hezbollah felt emboldened and drew Israel into a short, vicious war which resulted in large numbers of Lebanese civilian casualties. Far from being cowed or defeated, Hezbollah and its leadership are the rock-stars of the region, with America and Israel coming out with black-eyes and further eroded, if that's possible, credibility in the region. And Chimpy had the gall to say that, "Victory in Iraq...Will require more sacrifice.", begging the question of just who will make that sacrifice. Certainly not GOP contributors or those benefitting from his tax cuts.

All three went out of their way to equate the rise of Islamic fundamentalist inspired terrorism with the rise of Hitler and the Nazis in Weimar Germany. Unfortunately, however, it is Chimpy and Co., the Bush administration, which has adopted tactics striaght from Herman Goering's playbook. They are attempting to marginalize and and isolate those who oppose their policies...They brand any who oppose them as unpatriotic and cowardly...They attempt to instill fear of attack into the American populace in order to justify both the war in Iraq and the undermining of the Constitution at home.

None of these men has truly been confronted with the consequnces of their policies. None have seen the killing fields in Iraq first-hand. To my knowledge, none of them have been to a field hospital in the aftermath of an IED attack. Chimpy has paid but the briefest of visits to Walter Reed Army Hospital to see the men and women sacrificed on the altar of his dirty little war. They continue to spout their mindless optimistic slogans about how well the war in Iraq is going.

The sad truth is that the more isolated from the carnage they cause a country's leadership is, the more unfounded optimism replaces reality. And this reality is almost non-existent at the very highest levels of decision making. This break from reality can be seen in the speeches offered up this week by Chimpy and Co. Thus they, and their supporters/apologist/synchophants pose a greater threat to the Republic than any terrorists could ever dream of.

Can anyone rebuttal what Bully said? I would love to see someone make an argument against Bully's view of the political speeches made by the top dogs of the Bush and Dick administration.


Bully, do you find it funny when Cons like onthefence say you "regurgitate" stuff heard on AirAmerica, then they go about using phrases like "talking points" which they directly repeat from their daily dosage of Rush? I know I do.:usa:

Actually, I think they're getting tired of defending the indefensible.

But it is amusing to hear them whine about regurgitating talking points when I can find many of their arguments coming word for word from Rush Limbaugh and others of his ilk. I, for one, prefer to think for myself.

This is why people dont debate you. You rehash old arguments that you lost and think that since enough time has passed people will forget the evidence they used to debunk your nonsense. So why waste time debating a crazy person. They have their own view of things in their own little world and your not going to change it. Thats why no one debates you bully. Its a waste of time to change a crazy person's POV.

Now you know why I find it futile to debate right-wingers here...It's a waste of time to try and change the minds of the insane. Then too, their nodding acquaintance with reality only makes the introduction of facts into the discussion all the more difficult.

Hey, I'm with ya on this one bullshit.

How about this for an idea.

GO AWAY, STAY AWAY, I mean, after all, to use YOUR words, "it's a waste of time"..:food1:

Oh, and don't worry, NO ONE will miss you.:banned:

A cheap ploy, to be sure. But there is a similarity: neither Nazis nor radical Islamists pose a threat to true American interests. They only pose a threat to Jews. But it's funny: I don't think most Jews are convinced by Chimpy & Co. Not even the neocon ones. That gambit's for the truly stupid. Which, I fear, we have in abundance.

The frustration is offset by the entertainment value created when so many here splutter and bluster in a vain attempt to deny the fact of the failure of Chimpy and Co to do anything but make America more vulnerable to terrorism and destabilize the Middle East. Oh, and I almost forgot, line the pockets of US contractors in Iraq from the pockets of US taxpayers. Have a nice day!
