Next shoe to fall in Bush WH: John Bolton as US-UN ambassador?... Developing...
Just like the case with Bolton, he could only be a recess appointment. The Dems would never confirm.
The president has to pump up Americans along with the troops. You cannot give a mixed message and have the everyday guy understand it, If you are fighting Islamic fascism, you cannot say they are good guys, Muslims are peaceful, and and make any sense as to why you are fighting them. He never has understood jihad, until too late. His idea is noble, but he hasn't dealt with the threat with absolute clarity. He should have approached it from a world wide jihad stance and screwed political correctness. This is why he has failed. We will not win this until we do address jihad.
They wish to kill Americans. They have been actively making war on America and Americans since 1979. They are our enemies, no matter how much the treasonous voting bloc in America wishes to pretend that they aren't.
After the Islamofascists successfully use a nuclear weapon against an American city, we will need to hunt down and execute every registered Democrat--or recently reregistered ex-Democrat--we can find before we can fight the war we will need to fight.
Not true. Senate rarely doesn't confirm one of its own, at least relative to certain positions. There is no way Rick could get confirmed for a USSC justice, for example, but clearly he could be confirmed as UN Ambassador.
That said, we can still get Bolten confirmed during the Lame Duck session.
It hasn't got anything to do with being smart IMO. It's trusting the wrong people. I know people, I have family that believe everything they hear on "the news" The media, campaigned hard and they won last night.
I haven't noticed him marching much the last 6 years. I doubt that he is worried about impeachment.
That's because they know how to take advantage of being the majority party. Unlike the Retarded Party which has no idea what it means to be in the majority. They are about to get a very sobering lesson...as are all of us. My contempt for the millions of short-sighted dem voters, and stay at home "conservatives" in this country could not be stronger.
I doubt that. Had Rumsfeld stayed, he would have spent the next two years planted in a witness chair. I like Rummy but this is a good cut-your-losses move.
On the broader agenda, we've been gridlocked for two years and we'll be gridlocked for the next two. I hate to say it, but we're dead in the water. The 2008 campaign started today. Let's see what Bush does on the next SC appointment.
You have put into words what many of us are thinking. Now is not the time to point fingers.
Regroup and start working for 2008!
""If he did, it would have been Rove who was gone!
Oh, the day's not over yet."
The only ones who care about Rove are the demented, traitorous moonbats; the DUmmie land types.
The uninformed voter (basically 99% of the population) probably has no idea who the hell Rove is. The only thing they see is Rumsfeld's picture on TV while some talking head is talking about what how bad and evil he is.
I doubt that the average voter would even recognize the name Rove.
Agreed. The same folks who waved the white flag of surrender and thought they'd teach the country a lesson by allowing the liberal enemy to take control have NO position to attack anyone for being weak. They (and we) are reaping what they sowed. And it sucks.
I'm an American and a troop. He pumps me up. But then, I don't demand to have my way on every issue. Maybe that's because I am a troop.
"If you are fighting Islamic fascism, you cannot say they are good guys"
When has the President EVER said Islamic fascists were good guys? I'm a big right winger, but I don't think right wing fascists are good guys.
"He never has understood jihad, until too late."
Actually, your previous statements indicate it is YOU who doesn't understand the war on jihad. This is going to come as a real shock to many, but the leading military warriors right now are advocating a strategy of victory through decreasing firepower. They want to pinpoint and destroy the sources that create jihadists because trying to kill all the jihadists is the equivalent of swatting mosquitoes with a baseball bat. Now, these military warriors have been fighting these jihadists in the trenches for years. They KNOW what they are talking about. And their approach is becoming very similar to what you claim Bush's is.
"This is why he has failed."
First of all, he hasn't failed. We are winning. But our greatest weak point is the very fickle and weak American public. We are truly a Burger King population. We want it our way and we want it our way now. The fact of the matter is, anything really worth having takes a lot of time and effort to achieve. Apparently, most Americans cannot understand that.
Oh yes buddy, I understand it, my son is in the military. You can't have it both ways. This is the nature of this struggle. I am speaking of how a lot of Americans that voted for the Dems see it and what the media has portrayed. I do not SEE it that way. These people see it that the enemy is not really defined. Some of them are okay and some are not. Confusing to the average Joe. I like Bush as a man, I know he means well, but he needed to sell it to those who are out there who are confused as to the threat. I Want Us to win and I support all you guys. The Dems and the left do not. They have obviously sold their bill of wares to the people. I never said they are good guys, but Bush does go to Cair stuff and tells them they are good Americans. To me they are not, to alot of us they are not. Is it possible that we can quit telling them that.? NO, BUSH HAS NOT TOLD ISLAMIC FASCISTS THEY ARE GOOD GUYS, BUT HE HAS NOT TOLD cair THAT WE AIN'T PUTTIN'UP WITH YOUR SHIT EITHER. Win the jihad and we win no matter what it takes.
i nominate Mr. Rogers, he will wow them with his soft demeanor and sweaters. besides, as Pelosi said 'the children would be in charge'.
Why????!!!! Bush might as well resign and ask Pelosi to become Der Furher. Bolton should stay right where he is and do just what he does best.
I just wish he had a little bit of Teddy Roosevelt in him and could use his Presidency as a bully pulpit. Right now thats about all he has left of it.
That's bs. What he has left are people like you and me who are willing to stand up and give the guy some loud unqualified support. He has a LOT of TR in him. The question is, do we have any TR in US! Are we going to demand the press give him a fair shake, to allow him to use the bully pulpit...or are we going to shrug our shoulders and write it off to bad communication on the President's part? Do we have his back? Help him with the things he needs help with? Look for places to get the message out?
I am going to say this over and over loud and clear: At this point we have so weakened him, that YOU (and I) are PERSONALLY deciding the fate of millions of good and decent people here and in Iraq. Will we give them a shot no matter how tough that is, or will we wimp out and blame other people for "mismanaging" the war?
It's time we take this thing personally and not stand around with our fingers up our noses waiting for somebody else to make this right. This is work, this is incremental, this is painful, this is HARD. Are YOU up for it, or do you plan to turn around and hide under your bed until the adults take care of it for youassuming of course that you don't shoot them from your "safe and secure" vantage point under the bed because of a propensity to panic.
This is YOUR war, this is YOUR president. He is a man with strengths and weaknesses, which means we step up where he is weak, and stand back were he is strong.
We constantly expound about expecting that of the left, and yet somehow do not expect it from ourselves. Stunning, really.
Normally yes, but the Dems smell blood in the water.
