To FReeper Dads, Happy Father's Day!
From FReeper Snugs graphics shop, here are last week's winners:
Good morning, Alas. I see it's time to put on the coffee.
An amazing caller on C-Span, 34 years in the Army, so obviously high ranking, most likely a General, who says, " we've got 2,500 dead in this war, my God folks, we had 3,000 dead on 9-ll.". His son is now in Iraq.
The caller chided Donna Brazile for expecting the government to predict the the outcome of a war, he told her that is impossible, and has been in any war. He reminds Brazille and Clifford May that pre-war intelligence is sometimes good, sometimes bad.
"Our borders are screened doors with broken hinges", says Clifford May, after Donna Brazile says Democrats want border security.
Predictions. Brazile predicts Harold Ford, Jr will win First's Tennessee Senate seat, and will be the first Af-Am elected since reconstruction.
May says Donna may be correct about Ford winning. May predicts Santorum will "pull off" his tough re-election bid.
Brazile says she does not think Obama will run for president in 2008.
Good morning AB, and everyone. Congratulations to Rodguy911 and all the winners from last weekend.
Ford just voted against the Iraq resolution in the House. I wonder how that will sit with Tennessee voters. Not well, I'm hoping.
America's #1 enemy Zarquawi is killed, President flies to Iraq to personally congratulate our great soldiers & new Iraqi govt. Networks acknowledging the significance are having Prez's press secretary. Russert, as usual having the anti-war, cut & run, mad Murtha.
Looks like Russert has NO SHAME.
Good morning AB:)
So...who will give the alternate view to Murtha? You mean Russert doesn't think there IS one?
The MSM is staying their own course.
Democrats are struggling to find "one" black Democrat who compares well to Dr. Rice, General Powell, or other black Republicans. Judging from current representation, it's a difficult job to accomplish.
Just as long as they don't have stacks of cash in their freezers.
Mad Murtha appeared on CNN "The Situation Room" - I said over and over in debate, if you listen to any of it, in Beirut President Reagan changed direction, in Somalia President Clinton changed direction, and yet here, with the troops out there every day, suffering from these explosive devices, and being looked at as occupiers 80 percent of the people want us out of there.
Here's what Osama bin Laden said about Clinton's decision to "change direction" in Somalia.
"After leaving Afghanistan, the Muslim fighters headed for Somalia and prepared for a long battle, thinking that the Americans were like the Russians," bin Laden said. "The youth were surprised at the low morale of the American soldiers and realized more than before that the American soldier was a paper tiger and after a few blows ran in defeat. And America forgot all the hoopla and media propaganda ... about being the world leader and the leader of the New World Order, and after a few blows they forgot about this title and left, dragging their corpses and their shameful defeat."
Mad Murtha, Osama bin Laden & MSM on the same page.
You have to admit that is a very difficult task :)
I spent last week in Boston (Kerry/Kennedy/Kook land) at the Microsoft Convention. I was very, very fortunate to meet up with Phsstpok. He is as intelligent and thoughtful in person as he is online. He also has a great personality and was sweet talking all the various software/hardware vendors and getting us lots of free stuff!
I'm back now in Sweet Home Alabama (got in last night) and am going out side to see how badly my garden has gotten without my constant attention. It's been hot and dry here all week. I'm off to water it, then on to church.
Tony Snow is live on C-Span.
Yochi Dreazen is on C-span, but so is Tony Snow. How bout that?
A lot of Democrats are going to have egg on their faces if the administration starts talking about this.
A terrific new freeper, Ikez78, has uncovered some interesting information; it's fully sourced here:
Big news last night in the Saddam - al Qaeda connection. al Baghdadi is a man leading the insurgency in Iraq currently. He was a Republican Guard officer for Saddam, companion of Zarqawi since the start of the war AND HAS BEEN FRIENDS WITH BIN LADEN SINCE MEETING HIM IN AFGHANISTAN http://markeichenlaub.blogspot.com/2006/06/abu-abdullah-rashid-al-baghdadi-former.html
The man will say anything to stay in the MSM spotlight.
Just a coincidence. Jefferson says there's a good reason to keep some "cold cash" around.
I see Lindsey Graham is gonna be on Face The Nation.
I also notice he's from SC which means South Carolina.
But what does the "R" after his name mean?
dog gone it! I was sandbagged.
Thanks, I almost missed it....
Yahooo! tony Snow reminding C-span viewers the president never said, "Mission Accomplished", that it was a banner on the ship returning from THEIR mission accomplished.
Tony said the reporter knew he was going to Iraq before Tony knew himself that he was going, and that's because the White House didn't want Tony lying to the WH reporters about the president's schedule.
08:35 AM EDT
0:40 (est.) LIVE
U.S. Policy in Iraq

Proof that the CSPAN webperson who posts the schedule is antiBush
Tony Snow is on this segment with Yochi and the host, Steve.
Good Morning and happy Father's Day to all FR Dad's!!
Congrats to all last week's winners. I may not contribute much but I enjoy reading this thread because of all the great comments, opinions and contributions.
Looking forward to Tony Snow on the talk shows. Anyone notice the negative comments by the left reagrding his performance? They have been brutal in their attack on him.
Really tired of the dem's putting Biden on to represent their opinions every single week. Same old tired rhetoric weekly.
Chairman James Mulva
Wasn't his sister the subject of a Seinfeld episode?
Little confusion, which Jefferson are we talking about, Jefferson - last name or middle name? :-)
Happy Father's Day to Tony Snow and all of you FReeper dads. God bless you for all you do.
If you've ever made the DC tour (courtesy of Kristinn or Angelwood), you know C-Span and FOXNews are in the same building.
I think Tony carried his own chair away as he left the studio??
Does it matter?
I think Tony may have just dropped in and surprised them. I don't think they expected him at all.
That was a good move. I did not read that he was going to be a guest on Fox News Sunday.
Apologies! This may be my fault.......I went to the C-Span website last night to prepare my post and then save it for a quick post this morning. I think Tony wasn't on the schedule as of last night and was booked this morning to lend balence........Too many shooters (Lemon Drops) of some $50/bottle Vodka last night after the performance.
Comforter-in-Chief couple of days ago privately met with those great soldiers families. It 's amazing to see how the military families admire our Prez. MSM as usual ignores it and Seattle Post-Intelligencer runs a touching article worth reading it in full, as it offers a complete contrast of the views reflecting the SERVING soldiers & their families with that of Mad Murtha's.
Ah, Senator Biden! Long time, no see!
No apology needed. It must have been an impromptu appearance by Tony!
Not long enough unfortunately.
Did you know he is running for president..."flat out." Biden loves to use those "regular guy" phrases.
The glue from his hair plugs must be seeping into his brain if he thinks he can be elected President. Delusional!
In for Tony, and of course the best intellectual company in the universe.
Happy Father's Day, all!
If he runs... it'll be when he starts championing his own pet agenda... not waiting to side with whom he percieves as the current, big cheese.
Woo Hoo leading with Tony!
