Olbermann On Why Bush Won’t Be Trusted With His Troop Plan

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on January 12th, 2007 11:12 pm by HL

Less than a half hour before the President was to address the nation on his “new way forward,” Keith Olbermann lists all of George W. Bush’s missteps, incorrect estimations, military miscues and misleading reasons for going to war.
All these arguments and more are reasons to believe that President Bush is not competent enough to lead us to victory, no matter how you choose to define it.

H.L.s Take
You gotta check out this video, if you have the stomach to hear an unrelenting attack on all of Bush’s Iraq War Failures.


Senate Has Enough Votes to End Troop Surge Filibuster

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on January 12th, 2007 10:56 pm by HL

Senator Chuck Hagel R-Nebraska, called Bush’s troop surge plan, “The worst blunder since Vietnam.” Makes sense being that Bush, unable to come up with a speech of his own, borrowed directly from the same speech Lyndon Johnson made 40 years earlier about ramping up troop levels in Vietnam. Do you see the twisted logic of Bush, do you see how failure is the actual goal. Bush uses a 40 year old speech from a failed war, for another failed war. Only the perfect F**k Up could come up with something that brilliantly bad.
As long as the war continues Bush, and his family and friend continue to get rich selling arms, and stealing oil from unmetered wells

Senate opposition to Bush plan grows

MSNBC
Excerpt
WASHINGTON – President Bush’s decision to deploy 21,500 additional troops to Iraq drew fierce opposition Thursday from congressional Democrats and some Republicans — among them Sen. Chuck Hagel, who called it “the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since Vietnam.”
“We expect to have 60” votes needed to block a filibuster, Reid said, noting that at least a dozen Senate Republicans have come out against the troop increase.

Bush said in a speech while visiting troops at Fort Benning, Ga., on Thursday that “it’s important for our fellow citizens to understand that failure in Iraq would be a disaster for our future.”’

H.L.s Take:
Too late George, it already is a failure to our future, but even more of a failure to your future. Although you don’t have a future, not that you need one with all the money you stole, but history will judge you as the worst president ever. 100 years from now when kids are learning history your name will be on the tips of thier toungues along with Washington, Lincoln, and FDR, but your name, George, will be up there for the opposite reason.
I was reading a story yesterday in the L.A. times about rich people who hire famous rock bands to play at their parties, peruse this excerpt:

And check out the lineup of stars that David H. Brooks, a defense contractor in Long Island, N.Y., hired for his daughter Elizabeth’s bat mitzvah at New York’s Rainbow Room in 2005: 50 Cent, Aerosmith, Don Henley, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks and Ciara. And during the pre-show cocktails, Kenny G provided some burnished background music. Again, the bill hit a reported $10 million.

That is what your tax dollars, (over 300 Billion so far) the blood of our soldiers (over 3000 so far) and the blood of innocent iraqis (over 100,000) are paying for. How much you want to bet that this guy was a BIG contributor to Bush’s campaign?
