Lots to do!! I am absolutely thrilled that there are so many folks and organizations out there that are taking on the politicians, the PC police, the anti-America crowds and the selling out of this country. Because, Houston, we have a problem!!
First, the Democrats can go to Hell! Unfortunately, I do not see this happening any time soon. So in the meantime, write them, call them, fax them and let them know how you feel about their comments (ON THE FLOOR!!) about our troops and their mission. You may agree with them ~ if so, the rest of this post is going to piss you off, so you might as well just scat.

Washington, DC— As we approach the sixth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Democratic Senators Robert Menendez and Bob Casey joined Matt Bennett of Third Way at a press conference today to discuss Democrats’ efforts to help make America more secure and how President Bush’s flawed strategy in Iraq is distracting us from targeting a resurgent Al Qaeda. Far from keeping Osama bin Laden on the run, as President Bush promised in 2001, he is building up his terrorist network and now plans to release a videotape ahead of next week’s anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Washington, DC—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today in response to Gen. James Jones’s report:
“Gen. Jones’s report today, like all other objective assessments before it, unfortunately tells us more of the same: that the President’s strategy brings us no closer to the necessary political reconciliation and it is past time to change course in Iraq. It is discouraging that the President stubbornly claims his failed policy is working even as this latest report describe many Iraqi security forces as focused more on fostering civil war than on suppressing it.
“Democrats will continue to push for a new strategy because only by changing course can we best protect our troops and make America secure.”

You are just a lying, traitorous believer of your own PR. You are a disgrace to this country and need to go.
“And let me be clear: the violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge.
The lack of protection for these tribes from al Qaeda made it clear to these tribes, “We have to fight al Qaeda ourselves.”
“Are we placing our faith in the future of Iraq, in the hands of some warlords? Some tribal leaders who at the moment dislike al Qaeda more than they dislike us? Make no mistake about it, they’re no friends of Americans,” Schumer said. “Is this the vaunted, clarion cry for democracy in the Middle East that the President announced when he started the build-up in Iraq? Obviously not. This is a policy of last resort. This is a policy of desperation.”
“Anbar is a mirage of calm amid a desert of chaos,” Schumer later added.
The full text of Schumer’s remarks is produced below.
REMARKS BY SENATOR CHARLES E. SCHUMER

“Thank you, Mr. President. I rise today to discuss the situation in Iraq and the continuing efforts of this administration to paint a rosy picture and cling to straws when the situation on the ground and common sense suggest just the opposite…

I can’t begin to find the words to express my disgust with you and the backstabbing, demoralizing language you have the audacity to spout. You no longer have the right to have the words ‘US Soldier or Marine’ in your mouth!
The war in Iraq is, tragically, a very different war. A mistaken war, sold with fear and misleading and manipulated intelligence that has taken the lives of 3,760 of our troops and more than 27,000 of America’s sons and daughters maimed and wounded, with broken bodies and shattered spirits, and killed tens of thousands – maybe hundreds of thousands — of innocent Iraqi men, women and children.and
Now, despite the growing list of independent reports and military experts who say he is dead wrong, President Bush is preparing to tell the nation, once again, that his strategy in Iraq is succeeding.
We know what the Bush-Petraeus report will say: The surge is working. Be patient.
The surge is not working
The reality is: Despite heroic efforts by US troops, the Bush surge is not working.
The surge has stretched our military to the breaking point, yet violence in Iraq has increased, and political progress in Iraq has come to a standstill.
Tragically, Iraqis are failing to use the “breathing space” created with the lives of our sons and daughters to work for reconciliation and lasting security.
By carefully manipulating the statistics, the Bush-Petraeus report will try to persuade us that violence in Iraq is decreasing and thus the surge is working.
Even if the figures were right, the conclusion is wrong.

Your sleep must be racked with such doom and gloom nightmares ~ or do you spend the dark hours thinking up ways to find defeat in everything our troops do. Do you have a voodoo doll of President Bush that you gleefully stick pins in?
And if that isn’t enough to get your hackles up, there’s this:
NO!! NO!! NO!! NO!!! WRONG!! WRONG!! WRONG!!
The popular all-American comic-book military man and action figure dating back to the 1940s is undergoing a significant transformation for the Paramount Pictures-distributed “G.I. Joe” film, which begins production in February and is scheduled for release in summer 2009.
No longer will G.I. Joe be a U.S. Special Forces soldier, the “Real American Hero” who, in his glory days, single-handedly won World War II.
In the politically correct new millennium, G.I. Joe bears no resemblance to the original.
Paramount has confirmed that in the movie, the name G.I. Joe will become an acronym for “Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity” — an international, coed task force charged with defeating bad guys. It will no longer stand for government issued, as in issued by the American government. (ARRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!)

Now go over to Mudville Gazette and read what’s really going on from the Boots on the Ground. You’ll feel ever so much better. Plus, you’ll have the ammunition of Truth when some liberal friend of your husband visits and starts with the myths the media would have you believe. (I speak of this from personal experience of just this last couple of days.)
I am so not done here…there is too much going on and so much to get out to everyone.
More tomorrow ~ ~ ~
