“We are one signature away from ending the Iraq War. President Bush must listen to the will of the American people and sign this bill so that our troops can come home.”
Wrong, false, not true.
This is a myth. Despite the fact that's what Sen. Obama wants us all to believe, nothing could be further from the truth. Fact is, on the very day the last US soldier leaves Iraq, the war will just be beginning.
“I opposed this war from the start. I said then that it would distract us from pursuing those who attacked us and would entangle us in an occupation of undetermined length, cost and consequences. This war has no military solution, and the Iraqi people need to take responsibility for their own future.”
I know many people that are like the Senator.
They opposed the war from the start, they said it would distract us, and they said war was not the answer. They said what they said, and believed what they believed, sincerely (as is their right). But I am noticing that a few are starting to say that that we made this mess and now we should be forced to see it through. (SEE: Michael Ware)
Because they aren't running for President. They aren't trying to speak unto us, smooth things, because that's what they think we want to hear. They aren't trying to get elected to anything, therefore they are free to talk sense without groups like MoveOn.Org condemning them, and running a candidate against them.
Private jets were used by Dem candidates to get to this evening's debate.
A flock of small jets took flight from Washington Thursday, each carrying a Democratic presidential candidate to South Carolina for the first debate of the political season.
For Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama, Chris Dodd and Joe Biden, it was wheels up shortly after they voted in favor of legislation requiring that U.S. troops begin returning home from Iraq in the fall.
No one jet pooled, no one took commercial flights to save money, fuel or emissions.
Not one, no one. Nada, nil, none, zero, zilch. All played the lone wolf, tonight. Yet somehow, I am sure that all of them embrace the lion's share of the global warming philosophy, put forth by Guru Al and his merry band of environmentalists.
Now tell me, how can I respect someone that talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk?
