Webb to give State of the Union response
25 minutes ago
Freshman Sen. Jim Webb, a Vietnam War veteran, will deliver the official Democratic response to President Bush's State of the Union Address, where the war in Iraq is expected to be a central topic.
As a combat veteran, Webb, D-Va., "understands personally how crucial it is to find a new direction in Iraq and begin to bring the war to a close," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (news, bio, voting record) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) said Tuesday in announcing their choice of Webb to respond to Bush's Jan. 23 address to Congress.

I wonder if he'll threaten the viewing audience. Stay tuned!
Great, the head rent a vet. Screw him!
Why not Murtha as well?
Webb just might attempt to throw a fist strike at President Bush. LOL!
If you could just do this, I'd suggest we should have done it a long time ago. I wasn't aware that a country could simply choose when it was time for a war to be over.
I'm thinking 1942 would have been a good time to end World War 2, it would have saved us a lot of grief.
Wonder if the terrorists that attacked on 9/11 are aware of their obligation because of the 2006 election to go along with the end of the war.
I wonder who will write the speech for Webb.
I wonder if he'll be able to make it through the speech without threatening to beat up somebody.
Excellent News! Webb is a borderline psychotic, and his foaming at the mouth, shoe slamming on the table performance should be just the thing to impress upon the sleeping American Public what a mistake they've made.
Get Good'n ANGRY, Jimbo!!!
If what I just wrote made you sad or angry,
it was probably just a joke.
So, "Evil Chuckie" gets to do the response, ay? Gosh, how nice for all of us. Especially for those of us in Virginia. We just love our new senator.
I wish George hadn't said "macaca." Now we're saddled with this supercilious, egomaniac for six years.
Ah well. Such is politics.
Wonder if he will read from his perverted book.
Oh, that explains it. Reid is probably afraid of what Webb would do if he had to be in the chambers while Bush was there, and it would be bad for the democrats if one of their own rushed the podium and had to be "restrained".
This way, Webb is off somewhere else where he can't embarass them by threatening to attack the President.
I thought they would go with Tester.
Murtha still has Abscam cooties and isn't as pretty as Webb who has More medals.
Surrender Monkey with never-been-dirty army boots
Can we have a laugh track preset for Web's speech?
How about a "lie counter" in the bottom corner?
How about a montage word that will be used by all the media after the fact (ala gravitas)?
Think Webb's son is a little embarrassed that Dad is using him as a prop?
Murtha has a history
Webb will soon have one too
Is web another John "i was in viet nam" Kerry Democrat?
Will he Saaaaaaalute when he starts his little bash bush speech?
I wonder how many times web will mention "oversight".
Oversight for democrat party members means 350 commanders in chief overiding the president.
"Surrender Monkey with never-been-dirty army boots"
Webb is a Marine.
First in his class of 243 at the Marine Corps Officer's Basic School in Quantico, Virginia, he then served with the Fifth Marine Regiment in Vietnam, where as a rifle platoon and company commander in the infamous An Hoa Basin west of Danang he was awarded the Navy Cross, the Silver Star Medal, two Bronze Star Medals, and two Purple Hearts.
Might as well be both with the lack of respect for our military by Murtha and the lack of respect for President Bush and the office he holds by Webb. They both represent the lack of class exhibited by the left wing Dems.
All good questions? After Midway, the war in the Pacific was won. We should have withdrawn and gone home. The Japanese knew they had lost and would give back the Philippines.
That's a fine record. He's using it to advance himself personally which, of course, is also fine. But the fact he profits personally from being a 'credible' voice of dissent makes him fair game, regardless of military record.
Funny how NOTHING they are actually DOING in the Congress they hold majority in deal with Iraq, but that is what the response to the SOTU will focus on? I gotta love it.
This is going to be good. Hatred and blam is what Webb will bring, rather than the unity and the solutions he and his party were tasked with in the last election.
The people voted for change all right, they voted Democrats in so they can no longer cry about not having the power to stop that 'Evil Bush'. Their golden goose goto slogans are gone and now they have to lead instead of oppose the leader.
Democrats have already been falling on their faces in Congress and this next trip will be more fun to watch than when Castro took a nosedive after missing a step.
People thought they were punishing Allen for saying Macaca but instead they ended up electing one.
I wonder if they'll put him on a seven-second delay.
so please explain why he every appearance in the media these last 12 months have had him carry himself as a fist class aft orafice of a donkey?
I would have never guessed marine based on his public conduct.
(S)sorry he has the military service immunity from criticism totem.
Dont worry. When he doesnt get his way hell have a temper tantrum and quit. Just like when he was SECNAV.
"military service immunity"
No, no immunity to fair comment. But you libeled a war hero, simply because you disagree with him politically.
And that's not right.
Back to work for me . . . but how `bout just the facts, boys?
It's the only thing that keeps us from becoming Democrats.
No. It turns out Webb's son is a moonbat.
Do you think that George Allen will ever out live that? When his name comes into the news in 20 years, do you think that is the first thing they will mention about him?
I bet it will be the first thing they mention after he passes away.
Duke Cunningham was a war hero.
This guy's ranting will not go over well.
Oh, they'll inject him with sedatives. Don't worry. As long as they keep him from the bar, he'll be reasonable.
Dem collage of responders
I hope he won't get in a plug for adulterers or pedophiles.
I wonder if he will wave around his son's combat boots and call Muslims " ragheads ? "
Webb boasted that he thought about punching President Bush in the face at a reception the White House gave for the new Congressmen and Senators .
I have no doubt that will use the most disrespectful speech for the Commander in Chief .
He's a classless boor .
Part of the Democrats' new tough guy image. While they call for surrender all over the World.
communist or islamist? As a democrat there is no third possibility.
Really? I missed that. Where'd it surface?
As usual, I'll turn it off after the Presidents speech. I can't stand to listen to the rebuttal, no matter which rat gives it.
Oh boy! "Wacko Webb" will give the response! If we are lucky we may be treated to a few red-faced "Sieg Heil!", "Sieg Heil!".
So far, this war has been a case of the mountain going to Mohammed; once we pull out it will become the opposite -- either we choose the battlefield or it will choose us.
This guy is as messed up in the head over his Vietnam experience as Chuck Hagel and John McCain are.
We have obtained a fragment of the speech text:
MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark All the sweet, green icing flowing down Someone left the cake out in the rain I don't think that I can take it 'Cause it took so long to bake it And I'll never have that recipe again Oh, nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
I recall reading that he'd made a blog post, but I can't find evidence now.
This guy is sick.
He writes about homosexual incest all the while
he wore his son`s desert army boots during his
Something very very sick in this guy`s mind is going on.
