You would have thought he would have a canned answer for a simple question like that. Im surprised he didnt say "Kerry has a plan"

It was funny. O'Reilly asked him a simple question, amazing that even Holbrooke couldn't come up with a canned answer...............

Holbrook not only didn't have an answer but O'Reilly didn't really push him when he looked clueless. O'Reilly gave him a pass and that is very telling about the Bloviator.

He will pull out and allow the extremists to take over Iraq and that will embolden them to retake Afghanistan and even Kuwait and other countries.

It will embolden terrorists around the world, and many countries will no longer trust the US to act when its necessary.

He will defer everything to the UN.

I'm watching the replay right now. Pacificst punks. Dangerous to have in charge. I'll bet O'Reilly doesn't aks about Holbrooke's comment about this being a "metaphorical" war. ---- I was right.

We should bomb Al-Jazeera however. Good point O.

Well, the answer is obvious! Because, knowing what he knows now, he would do everything differently that Bush did - depending on the outcome, of course. And then, there is his PLAN - which he won't talk about at this point.

"O'Reilly gave him a pass.."

I disagree. I saw the segment and O'Reilly pretty much ridiculed Holbrooke during the entire spot. I'm not a big O'Reilly fan, but every once in a while he does his job, and he made Holbrooke look like a fool tonight.

Did I really hear Bill O in the opening segment call Holbrook "future secretary of state"? I'm wondering if he did, did he even qualify it by saying IF Kerry wins.

O'Reilly seemed to bow down to Holbrooke.

Also Opined that he don't care who gets elected in Iraq, he just wants them to get out of there so no more Americans lose their life. We need to do what it takes to win, not tuck tail and run.

He also had to repeat that he was going to give equal time to be Fair & Balanced, but seemed to let Holbrooke speak uninterrupted. He even let him quote the New York Times and the Washington Post as reliable sources?

What gives with O' Reilly, is he starting to drift to the MSM, perhaps he's shooting for Dan Rather's Job.

Or maybe he's scared of the outcome of the lawsuit and wants support from all sides.

He definitely has swung towards the Liberal edge in the last several months. Its ashame, he just lost another viewer!

What would Kerry do in Iraq if he were President?

Dial Jacques (Chirac) in the loo (in the toilet) to ask (Chirac's opinion) first?

Holbrooke was responsible for the messes in Bosnia and Kosovo.

If O'Reilly had asked him what to do about Belgrade, he would have found the answer easily. Bomb it.

Are you kidding, why of course he answered the question. First, he'd have a meeting with the U.N. and the members of NATO. They'd talk about some vague stuff and draft a totally meaningless resolution. The he'd...oh, what was the term...ah, yes...he'd "reach out" to the more "moderate" Middle Eastern Arab states, and then he'd "put pressure" on Israel, our only solid ally in the Middle East.

There, see, doesn't that make you feel better? I know I'll sleep better tonight.

This is why, after Teddy Kennedy's fiasco of 1980, one
of the many forbidden questions of Kerry is:
"Why do you want to be president?"

I saw that "60 Minutes" show when Teddy simply had no
answer for that question.

What we really want from Kerry is a procedure, not a plan. For example, I can plan on doing anything I want - making a million bucks, whatever. But to reach that goal, I need a procedure. A step-by-step if you will. Kerry has no clue about actual, concrete steps he would take. He is all talk, no action.

None of Kerry's mouthpieces, nor Edwards, nor Kerry himself can give answers of any substance. They don't know what Kerry would do. Kerry doesn't know what he would do.

The whole Kerry campaign has been built on 'GWB is bad', not on what Kerry would be. Yeh, Kerry 'would have done almost everything different.' But what does that mean? Kerry has never said.

Team Kerry expects the voters to buy a pig in a poke---and so far, nearly half of the voters seem willing to do so.

There's a bigger point to that...

There ought to be more discussion on the part of candidates with regard to the major appointments that they might make. It's a topic worth discussion... it may not matter all that much who will get the nod for secretary of education, but it sure as hell *does* matter who a candidate might pick as SecDef and SecState. Attention to these appointments doesn't get enough attention, IMHO.

Holbrooke looked weak, a girlee man. I bet you the Islamic/Facsist would love to have him as Secratary of State. This country better wake up before its too late. What I mean is that if President Bush wins by a landslide, then it would send a message to Democrats MSM, Islamic/Fascist, N. Korea, China, Russia, EU & etc that the American people stand by President Bush and give him the mandate to do what needs to be done.

I just noticed something; I just saw an old Jimmy Carter ad on TV Land. The ad said to vote for Carter for a change.

Bill Clinton also ran on "no theme" (aka 'a nebulus plan') and "change" as well.

Now, Kerry "has a plan" and is also running on "change."

Let's just hope that the American people fully understand that "change", while 'change', does not necessarily entail a positive move for the better!!!

Frankly, most of us have had enough "change." The only thing consistent about Carter, Clinton, and Kerry is that their plan will only leave you with change, in your pocket.

Lets examine Kerry's unadvertised plan (because he never talks about it but its known in the media circles):

1. Get allies to participate in the Iraq situation. France and Germany have both said in recent weeks that they won't change their mind. And if they did, the best you would get is maybe 1,500 troops each...which doesn't do anything for America.

2. Involve other middle eastern countries heavily into the situation. The Iraqis don't want anyone else from neighboring countries to show up. They are suspicious and have every right to be that way.

3. Involve the UN. If Bill Clinton does get Kofi Ananans job, which is heavily rumored now...it'll turn into a bigger UN mess.

4. Rapidly decrease troops in Iraq. Some folks think Kerry will cut 25 percent of the troop strength within 12 months of election in Iraq. And at least another 25 percent by Kerry's mid-term, with all troops gone by the next election (thus earning the peacemaker award). This can happen...except Iraq will fall into complete chaos and likely break up into four different countries (3 mostly Muslim and likely to fight each other for years).

Thats the policies that Holbrooke should have talked about.
