To tack onto my....

Earlier cartoon on the Democrat's fickle policy on Iraq...

Geez, Oh Pete....

These guys are scary smart. For me, they're every bit as scary as Freddy Kreuger, LeatherFace, or Jason.

But then, George Bush is pretty scary too.

Connecting a couple of dots...

Dot 1. President of Iran says: Move Israel to Europe

Dot 2. A portion of the welcoming committee. (h/t INDC-dorkafork)

Note: I am not, in any way an anti-Semite, nor am I suggesting that moving Israel to Europe would generate widespread anti-semitism there (in spite of the increased Islamic immigration there). My point is that thinking of the fringe, nutcase elements who would put up a JUDEN sign at a soccer match is completely present in the thinking of the President of Iran.

BTW, I might have some minor quibbles with their thinking, but these guys make an interesting case that a war with Iran is looming.

Tell me again why Iraq is a quagmire....

...When the same people told me Afghanistan would be a quagmire too?

The Blogfaddah nails it.

It's less than a year to the midterms, and....

Just what do the Democrats think about the War in Iraq?...

John Murtha Pull out to someplace nearby. Do it sooner rather than later. And on a 6 month deadline.

Nancy Pelosi Just get out.

Her deputy, Steny Hoyer Leaving "could lead to disaster, spawning a civil war, fostering a haven for terrorists and damaging our nation's security and credibility." [Which sounds surprisingly like what Bush is saying.]

Hillary Clinton I'm for the war, but Bush has screwed it up royally, and we ought to let the UN do something about WMDs.

John Kerry Huh?

Joe Lieberman
Does America have a good plan...for victory in Iraq? Yes we do.

On another forum, I said to a democratic-leaning reader...
Kerry lost because he couldn’t escape the label of being a “flip-flopper”. He made himself famous by being an anti-war activist-turned politician, and then tried to make America believe that these were credentials sufficient for him to become a Wartime President. He “voted for the War before he voted against it.”

The Democratic Party is collectively today doing what Kerry did as a candidate: Flip-flopping. Iraqi regime change became American policy in 1998 on a 97-2 vote in the Senate (as well as signed into law by Clinton). In 2002, the Congress “authorized [the President] to use the Armed Forces of the United States as he determines to be necessary and appropriate...” to pull Saddam out of power and to enforce the UN resolutions [emphasis added]. And, last week the House overwhelmingly voted down the idea that we should withdraw immediately.

Yet we continue to hear the Biden/Pelosi/Reed/Murtha/Sheehan crowd crow over and over that we ought to get out. What Democrats really ought to do is to get down on their knees and beg someone like Zell Miller, Ed Koch, or even Joe Lieberman to be their standard-bearer. Take the foreign policy issue away from the Republicans and force the debate to focus on domestic issues. You guys can win on domestic policy. The Republicans will cream you if you insist (again) on staying out of a war that our enemy has decided we’re in.

Does the above cartoon (lifted from the NY Post) not depict where the Democrats are today? Nowhere.

Just checking in...

Like everyone, I've been distracted by the Thanksgiving activities, as well as being involved in a rather in-depth forum discussion elsewhere. Son-of-Azlib and I were able to make it to the range last Friday. I've got a nice video, but damn my poor blogging skillz, I haven't been able to find how to put up a link.
