It is in the breaking news sidebar!
He went on to imply that we were correct in removing Saddam because it "...sends a message. Screw with the United States of America and we will bitch-slap you into the middle of next month."
Anyone else hear this? Clarification?
Tonight, America and the world are a much safer because Saddam and his sons are GONE.
I'm seriously PO'd at the press (including FoxNews) for refusing to acknowledge the great work being done by our young Americans helping Iraq get back on its feet. Each day our team makes progress in medical care, infrastructure, recreational facilities, government systems, security, and public relations.
But all we hear is about the death (by hitmen) of noble Americans. We aren't even reminded that they are noble. We aren't reminded that thugs are responsible.
IMO, this is "Against the Troops" rather than "Support the Troops." If you focus on the deaths without giving them MEANING IN CONTEXT, then you are robbing families of pride, consolation, and direction when they think of their loved ones. This is true whether the soldier is one of the deaths or is among the living.
The greatest family support in the world for deployed troops is to demonstrate the nobility of their efforts.
The media comes across like it hates soldiers, soldier families, and the United States of America.

The President of the United States arguably makes approximately two dozen speeches in his career- one or two inaugural speeches;four or eight State of the Union Addresses; one or two major policy speeches and the odd declaration of war or emergency interspersed with communiques on Foreign Tours.
Every word in every one of those speeches is part of his legacy from Washington's admonition to "beware entangling foreign alliances" to Lincoln's Gettysburg address to Eisenhower's "beware the military-industrial complex".
Defining phrases can be found for almost every President: Kennedy-"Ich bin ein Berliner"; Reagan-"Mr. Gorbachav, tear down this wall";FDR-"A day that will live in infamy";even Jimmy Carter's infamous "malaise speech".
Into this honorable lineage enters the first President of the 21st Century- a man who willfully refuses to correctly pronounce "Nuclear" in every public venue in which he appears; a man whose signature is on "Campaign Finance Reform" Legislation-designed to UnConstitutionally muzzle a certain type of unpopular speech.
Saddam Hussein remains at large. Weapons of Mass Destruction remain just as dangerous as they were before the Iraq invasion and Al Qaeda waits to strike again.
When exactly will this President and the Washington establishment honor their oath to Preserve, Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States?
Nero fiddled while Rome burned, the United States Kakistocracy twiddles while the Constitution smolders.
The Democrats want to punish President Bush. If he does not do anything wrong, they will invent something.
It is not working, and they can not figure out why. Should we tell them, or let them continue destroying themselves?
Hint, you guys no longer own the gatekeeper to information.
Someone once said that a lie would be halfway around the world before the truth got out of bed. Not anymore. Put a lie out today, and there are somewhere someplace awake to counter it.
There was a time the left could say one thing at one place and something else somewhere else, but those times are over. Everything they say is being recorded, cataloged, and available for their own words to condemn themselves. What a great time to be alive.
Shortly before the fall of Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS, created an organization known as the "Werewolves." They were directed to kill American soldiers and German collaborators with the occupation, and to sabotage public facilities and utilities. How many Americans were killed? How many attacks took place?
So how many?
Everything you say is true and logical if the people in the press are honest and genuinely after the getting and reporting of the truth.
My take is, this is not a case of the Media being lazy (which many are), stupid (which some are), incompetent (which is possible) or in a feeding-frenzy (which is usual).
It is a case of this fitting their agendas nicely. So, they are feeding this story by aiding and abetting the liars and scoundrels who assert it. In other words, they are in collusion to destroy President Bush (whom they hate), our successful actions in Iraq (which they detest) and our overall War On Terror (which they don't believe is warranted).
Why? Because they are ideologically wont to do so. They have the means and also the advantage of being encouraged by the Democrats, which may as well be renamed the American Baathocrat Party. Remember, this is all the same crowd that stood by and defended the clintons and their criminality for eight long years.
It's in their nature, just as it is in a dog's nature to return to his own vomit.
A little off the mark as it were but never the less the fact is "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday that 42,815 people died in auto accidents in 2002, an increase of 1.5% from 2001. At the same time, the number of injuries dropped, from 3.03 million in 2001 to 2.92 million in 2002." Not to mention hundreds of others in non-auto related deaths. The fixation of the various media on a daily count of American military deaths in Iraq is a little sick IMHO. It's just not PC to report those dying of AIDS.......
