Presidential Malaise

Jed Babbin nails it in TAS this morning. What`s wrong in Iraq? Find out from the incomparable Mr. Babbin.

Here are some reader comments:


Aussiegirl here again -- great article by Babbin. And once again, Bush's speech yesterday was annoyingly and disappointingly lame and repetive. He just says the same thing over and over again like we are stupid and didn't hear him the first hundred times he used the same phrases. He didn't address directly the problems we are having in Iraq, nor as the author states the wider goals and implications of the war on terror. He didn't address American's concerns about the Iraqi constitution and the diminution of women's rights under Sharia law. Is this what 2000 Americans died for? So women would be forced to wear the hijab and be subservient to their husbands and little more than chattel in the eyes of the law? And the old saw about "we are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them here doesn't make any sense. They are fully capable of waging a war over there and still organizing a strike on America. They managed to do it in London. It's not like there's more than enough of these fanatics and plenty of homegrown cells living amongst us here. He simply seems to have lost focus and I think just wishes to move on and not be bothered with it anymore.

I am forced to agree with Aussiegirl, Dubya has fallen on his face without the aide of his mountain bike this time. The “proposed” Iraqi constitution is disgusting and will set the stage for the Ayatollah’s north of the border to exert even more influence than they do now. We (the US) have assumed a defensive posture in Iraq, and any soldier worth his salt knows that no war was ever won defensively.

Only slightly less disgusting than the Iraqi constitution are the Republican politicians who voted to authorize this war when it was easy to do so and are now attacking the administration because they detect that the popular winds have shifted. Hagel is the most flagrant of these sleazebags but he has always pretended to be a maverick like McCain…

Now for the really important question; I have no idea what trackback is or what it’s good for, But I will investigate and report back here…….. later Dudes and Dudettes……..

Well I gave it the old collge try, but after taking the time to sign-up and attempting to bring trackback to life on my blog using the auto install feature it decided to ........... crash and burn. So with out further ado I said "screw it, who needs trackback anyway?" I can comment my fool head off as it is.........
and that's my report from flyover country unless your flying Northwest, then this may be fall over country........
