The current director of the Air National Guard has something interesting to say about the war. Lt. Gen. Craig McKinley was serving at the Pentagon on 9/11, and marks that day as one of the worst in his career.
Today, when talking about how we have taken the fight to the enemy, he does not parse his statements with politically correct language. Instead, he praises our strategy and says he feels vindicated by the war's progress. Whats more, in a subtle jab at those who would forget, he warns that we can't let our armed forces "atrophy" like we did in the years leading up to 9/11.
McKinley's comments are refreshing when compared to those of other Pentagon leaders who find themselves before the media's microphones. You can listen to his interview at http://www.northupinfo.com/infocenter.asp .
This guy will be crucified and/or lynched by the liberal media. We're going to have to watch his back.
And that is why we need to work like hell to make sure there is no President Hillary, or Obama or any other turncoat appeaser.
A bit off topic I know.
I have real problems with Rudy on Gun's, Gay's, & Abortion...BUT i'm wondering if it won't take a Rudy to beat Hillary? Someone who's not afraid to get down and dirty, throw mud. Because you know she will.
I know the old ways of doing things are now obsolete. We have to utilize the new media. The blogs, emails and everything else we can think of. If you have children in school, try to get some parents together and educate them on just what the democrats are up to. And not just the democrats but there are quite a few rinos who are just as bad. I have been using the internet as much as I can, sending emails and the people who don't have email, I print out lots of stuff and mail it to them. I have had some good results. I am not able to do much else but I do what I can. If everyone did what they were able to do and recruited 2 or 3 more, then we could make some progress. This forum is a perfect example of what can be achieved when people are determined and want change.
I don't like Rudy's views on those topics either but I think he would be a good organizer and leader. I also think he would be good at judicial appointments. We cannot afford to be 1 issue voters. I have not decided who I will support yet. I know who I will not support in the primaries. That is where we can really get out and vote for someone who will be a hawk on protecting this country. But I will support the Republican candidate. I cannot vote for a democrat that goes against EVERTHING I believe in. And all of them fit in that category.
I've been telling people here for some time now, we play an important part in this war. Talking to people, explaining the who what where when & how of this war. For whatever reason the Bush administration is not very good at this, so it's up to us to pick up the slack.
Plus it's always fun to smackdown the lefties, cut and runners...etc.
Corrupt to the core.
You got it. This is exactly how it works. Keep it up.
Not to worry, Hillary won't get the dem nomination. She's been hiding under the media skirts for years. Once she's forced to speak candidly without pre-chosen audiences and questions, you'll hear laugh tracks every time she tries to sound intelligent and informed. She's a horrible liar, her IQ is half what people think, and she has the political instincts of a rock. Plus, every time she's exposed for being a fool, she becomes a PMS enraged elitist feminist. Her likability factor is zero.
When people like her spend their whole lives telling lies, they can't remember anything they've said. Every sentence she utters will create flip flops and lies. It's going to be hilarious to watch her fry.
But remember she's got the Clinton smear machine behind her. And that's nothing to take lightly.
