America Always Defies The Pessimists

Published by at 10:05 pm under All General Discussions

Bush nailed his speech and the Dems walked off the cliff into oblivion. Bush was clear we had a tough job, but a doable one if things come together. And he was clear that failure in Iraq, especially derived from dumb-headed retreat, would cause the extension of our dying in Iraq and the ME as we would give Al Qaeda the grand prize of the ME: Iraq. Bush is open to all ideas which hasten and secure success. He is not interested in ideas on how to hasten our defeat. And America’s ‘can do’ attitude was tapped with good, solid changes in strategy. He said we always defy the pessimists (and we do). He explained the ramifications of defeat and how that path only leads to more death and destruction and innocent lives lost. How will we defy the pessimists (i.e., the Democrats)?

Both Iraq and the US are flooding Baghdad and Anbar with forces to stomp out the violence. Maliki has given the final ultimatum to the Shiia militias – disband or be destroyed. And we will now hunt down and take out the Syrian and Iranian meddlers and their insurgency support networks. The hands are untied, the gloves are off, and the Americans are now unleashed to tamp out all threats to the democratically elected Iraqi government.

And Dick Durbin (who claimed our brave military were like Nazi’s and other brutal tyrants of the 20th century) walked right into Bush’s straight flush. Bush reminded people plans for failure are not an option. And while our hopes had not been achieved yet, our options for success are still wide open. Dower Durbin, the leader of the pessimist party, made the insane decision to go ahead and be the example of what Bush said was not feasible or safe. And in doing so Bush set expectations for success.

We will reduce the violence. We will hunt down Al Qaeda. We will destroy the Syrian and Iranian support efforts. But the forces aligned against us will still kill with impunity. We will not see a battleship signing ceremony. The Iraq government has some clear milestones – which they will make. And the democrat pessimists, will be eating crow. The donkeys are now the Eeyores. Don’t ever play poker with Bush when he holds all the cards and you have shown him yours. The Dems tipped their hand and got forever labled as the pessimists.

In what must have been the biggest eye opener of the speech we learned 80% of the violence is within a short 30 miles of Baghdad (the rest being in Anbar Province). If this plan succeeds then 80% of the violence could be stomped out by summer, and the reconciliation and rebuilding can continue. The Dem have done their chicken little dance and now must live with their pessimistic positions. If Bush is successful, it will be clear the pessimism came from incompetence and impotence – not from leadership or wisdom. The cards are set and we are just waiting the final card to be turned.

    Well the Democrats are dreaming if they think they have a majority of the American people wanting to cut and run.

    And BDS is… Bigger Dumber Stories? I’m just trying to texturalize the Preznit’s ridculous strategery more widerly… seeing the Decider more decidingly, the Leader more leadingly, the Man more mannishly, the squid more ink-ily.

  3. For Enforcement says:

    Jerry, you sound like Ken. Related?
    You know what BDS really is, you need treatment.

  4. jerry says:

    Ken? Ken who? Kin?

  5. jerry says:

    I hate to think I remind you of someone else out there, I’m so … original. Does Ken channel W in fabulous rambling free-association dialogues like the one I posted earlier? Now that was special, nobody does that on the web like me, it’s my signature contribution style, my trademark, my je ne sai quoi, the essential me… don’t go copying it/me now!

  6. Dick Durbin Tells Iraq They Are On Their Own…

    President Bush just gave his address to the nation speech and, two very clear messages were sent to Iraq and the rest of the world– one from camp victory, and one from camp defeat. President Bush stood before the world and told Iraq that we are d…

    You are anything but original. And fabulous does not even begin to describe your posts. Try mediocre or even dumb. No wants to copy you. They want you to shut up.

  8. For Enforcement says:

    Jerry, “the truth don’t matter no more, no more),”

    That’s your signature, along with OBC BDS. Ken is the guy you are impersonating with your attempt to use meaningless big words. You think you are original, just go back about a week, he was on every thread,, just like you miraculously appeared about the same time he got cut off for his insults.
    All libs have about 3 things in common and you are no different.
    1. Hate America
    2.BDS (your case has metabolized to OBC strain)
    3. Resort to name calling(product of small minds)
    4. Want to lose in the war on terrorism.
    5. Don’t ever have any original thoughts, just copy other libs.

    well, I did have a couple extra, but they all fit. As I said Jerr, you’re not original or an exception. Same song 100th verse.

  9. For Enforcement says:

    Channel (that would be one track thinking) sounds like about your capability.

  10. Barbara says:

    I believe Ken has many, many aliases. Allof the sudden new lefties starting posting at the same time Ken got the ax.

    Also I thought Robert got the ax also. I forget his last name. He is forgettable you know.

  11. For Enforcement says:

    Robert Lewis, and Gil

  12. For Enforcement says:

    But I don’t think RL got the axe

  13. jerry says:

    How can I impersonate Ken if I don’t know who he is? You guys are a bit hung up on Ken, I can say that. I may be dumb, that is possible, I admit.

  14. For Enforcement says:

    You’re not impersonating him, you are him. You don’t have anyone fooled. You haven’t even heard us talk about Ken before, but you know we’re hung up on him? Psychic? May? be dumb?.. … Wouldn’t touch that with a four foot pole.

  15. jerry says:

    Is this like Barbi and Ken? You like that Ken doll Lefty?

  16. For Enforcement says:

    How did you know my real name was Lefty, who told you?

    Love your blog, but can’t stomach the endless spelling errors, e.g., today’s headline that should have been spelled “Our”

    You are too too good to be letting this continuing carelessness get in the way of your messages.
