Michael Moore mocks Obama for setting a deadline. Calls it crazy talk.
Larry King Live ^ | 12-1-09 | Larry King Live

Posted on 12/02/2009 6:44:36 AM PST by cushman

Michael Moore: I can understand why Republicans and some of the people on the right, lol, are like, 'What are you doing setting a deadline?'. It's like CRAZY. If they're truly the enemy, you don't say, 'Okay, we're going to fight you until 2:00 on ummm (looks at watch), on July 2, 2011. I mean it's like, if they are the enemy, you fight them until they're done. Until you win, and they lose. And that's not what he said. He just provided more fodder for his opponents by giving a deadline.

Larry KIng: Right

Michael Moore: If somebody is trying to kill you, if that's his case, that people in Afganistan are trying to kill us, then how can you set a deadline? The deadline is maybe a week from now or maybe it's 10 years from now, but it's going to be, 'We're going to stop you from killing us".

At the 4:05 mark. He's doesn't want more troops, but even Michael Moore is able to see the craziness of setting a deadline.

Good Lord, what’s down is up and what’s up is down. I have somehow shifted into the Twilight Zone because I completely and totally agree with Michael Moore!

Michael Moore: It was interesting though to hear him essentially praise The Bush policy in Iraq and how it succeeded. I mean it was really bizarre to hear him say some of these things.

It should be obvious to anyone listening to Moore during an interview that he is anything but stupid. I've often wondered whether his whole shtick is just a gig to him. (Just another kind of prostitute.)

Have we just slipped into an alternative universe?

Is the Michael Moore we all know and hate?

The sheen is definitely slipping from the Shining One...Michael will get a call! Hope he's got his knee caps insured.

I had to read this a couple times to make sure I got it right. Michael Moore is chastizing 0bama for setting a deadline, because it aids the enemy.

Ummm... Good on ya, Mike. (wow, that was weird)

At some point even the most recalcitrant begin to see past the great Obama ruse. Like globull warming, you can hide it for a long time, but ultimately it all unravels and the truth is there for even the most dense to see.

Credit to Moore for at least having a modicum of honesty here. Even he cannot deny how utterly foolish it is to set a deadline.

Not so fast, he's still in love with Obama. Just thinks Obama is getting bad advice by listening to the Generals. Michael Moore: 'I gotta tell ya Larry, I hate to be even saying these things because I honestly think Barack Obama is a good and decent man. He has a good heart. I believe he's a man of peace. I was thrilled that he won the peace prize, so to see him make this mistake (more troops), I just think he's listened to the Generals, he's taken bad advice."

I had to tune in Air America this morning to hear their wrath, and it looks like the Moonbats are lock step with Moore on this one. They are as angry at Obama as I have ever seen them. The Dems have something to worry about in 2010. From apathy to anger, Dems are going to sit at home or vote for a far left third party.

It’s more like Michael Moore is upset that Obama is sending more troops.

But on a side note, he mocks Obama for setting a deadline based on Obama’s argument. He’s mocking Obama’s reasoning for sending more troops. Basically saying, Obama’s case is that we are pursuing the enemy. Moore says, if that’s his case, he’s crazy for setting a deadline. Why would you tell your so called enemy when you are going to stop fighting. If they’re truly the enemy, you fight to win. End of story.

What a coincidence! It's Michael Mooreing in Dallas at this very minute!

You know. Big fat flakes ... one big drip ... polluted ... an intolerable mess ... screws up everything ... snarls traffic ... causes needless wrecks ... harms the economy ... a big pain in the butt ... serves no useful purpose.

Right now, the Senate Armed Forces Committee is meeting and John McCain is ripping Gates a new one with regard to setting a withdrawal date.

He wrote an article yesterday. It was posted on FR. I agreed with him that we need to bring our troops home, but for different reasons that Moore’s.

I’m convinced that this war, along with everything else, is about Obama. This guy will blame everyone for his failure. Our troops are doomed there.

Obama already set a deadline for ending the Iraq War:
March of 2008.

Remember?

Deadline #1


Click on the image above or this video link to hear Barack Obama proclaim that he had a plan to have our troops
out of Iraq by March... of 2008!

The deadline is stupid. All the enemy has to do is avoid defeat for 18 months, and then take over after we pull out.
