Conservative Republican Thinks Bush is Full of BS about this Iraq *Strategy* too

21 October 2006 at 1:54:28 PM

Disclaimer: I AM against the Iraq War, against militarism, but for strong defenses of our own country, and I think we ought to leave Iraq as soon as possible. I also have a suspicion that Bush is looking for a way to get out that will let HIM stay a stubborn ass that Just Has To Listen To the Generals, so that he can maintain his pride and not look like he ever changes his mind about anything. Oh, he'll figure out a way to, as he so quaintly puts it "Cut and Run" except he'll phrase it differently to try to spin people on what he's doing. Let me put a marker in the sand here that if he says he's taking troops out of Iraq and redeploying them somewhere else (Murtha's plan) for ANY reason, he'll be doing what he accused Democrats AND Republicans of suggesting. But it sure looks and smells to me like he's getting desperate and waging a PR campaign to figure out how to get OUT without losing face.

Anyway, Texas Fred, whose blog I read occasionally, and I usually don't agree with in most respects... but sometimes... had this to say about Bush's meeting with the generals et al.

“The terrorists are trying to divide America and break our will, and we must not allow them to succeed,” he (Pres. Bush) said.

Mr. President, the terrorists may be ‘trying’ to divide the American people, but for the most part, the American people are smart enough to SEE that, at least, the Conservatives and most Republicans are, but YOU Mr. President, YOU have divided this nation, NOT the terrorists, YOU sir…You have done so by going into a place, against some damned good advice too I might add, a place we never should have gone, by going in under-equipped, under-manned and under-prepared for the aftermath of ‘mission accomplished’…And you continue to divide this nation with your stubborn hardheadedness as you refuse to change the way we are prosecuting this ‘war’…But that’s OK Mr. President, on Nov. 7th I am pretty sure the voters of this great nation are going to send you a message that will be loud and clear, one that will have what remains of the Republican Congress going crazy all over your ass for getting them slaughtered…

YOU sent our troops in with noting more on YOUR mind than to have them get Saddam out of power, and to hell with everything else…

Have to say, this is another instance (Trans Texas Corridor is another one since Republicans also-except Perry and some of the crazy House Republicans who WANT to take people's land for the NAFTA superhighway- are against it) where it doesn't really matter whether we're Democrats, Republicans, or Independents, we agree that Bush is a fool. We might not agree (and don't, actually)  on some aspects of how the war is being waged, but demmit, we're Americans, and we don't want to see people get slaughtered just because Bush is a stubborn ass.
