Cutting through the BS

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Go Blue

The Legacy of Karl Rove will live on, and most horrifc is the politicalization of OUR Troops in Iraq and how divided as nation we have become because of Rove and his puppet in the White House.

“In the soldier’s hand was a thumbnail biography, distributed before each of the congressmen’s meetings in Baghdad, which let meeting participants such as that soldier know where each of the lawmakers stands on the war. “Moran on Iraq policy,” read one section, going on to cite some the congressman’s most incendiary statements, such as, “This has been the worst foreign policy fiasco in American history.”

Read the WaPo article here: http://www.washingto…

And not only does the White House attacks Dems while in Iraq, they take them on a dog a pony show which is now being referred to as “Green Zone fog”

“Brief, choreographed and carefully controlled, the codels (short for congressional delegations) often have showed only what the Pentagon and the Bush administration have wanted the lawmakers to see. At one point, as Moran, Tauscher and Rep. Jon Porter (R-Nev.) were heading to lunch in the fortified Green Zone, an American urgently tried to get their attention, apparently to voice concerns about the war effort, the participants said. Security whisked the man away before he could make his point.”

However, no matter how thick that fog is, reality seems to always jump up and bite them in the ass, as Rueters is reporting: http://www.reuters.c…

“A U.S. military plane carrying a U.S. congressional delegation came under fire this week while taking off from Baghdad airport, forcing the crew to take evasive action, the military said on Friday.”

And all the while Colorado Republicans like Bob Schaffer will blame Democrats (or in Musgrave’s case the American citizens).

“I think it’s foolish to behave the way you see people like Harry Reid and other, others who are leading the Senate right now, that I think are trying to, at the end, the analysis of their achievement and what they are effectively accomplishing is a deliberate loss and a surrender in Iraq for the sake of their political advantage at election time in 2008. I think they’re hoping America loses.”

Perhaps if this Administration and their 20% of “Give-War-a-Chance” and faux “Support the Troops” bumperstickers crowd like Bob Schaffer spent as much time planning an exit strategy for Iraq, as they do with the politicalization of the war itself, Bush could have actually declared “Mission Accomplished” 1,575 days ago and actually meant it.

If Bob Schaffer is elected to the US Senate, we will “stay the course” in Iraq. Schaffer isn’t even in the realm of reality when it comes to Iraq.  He’d rather continue the politicalization of this occupation in hopes of winning a Senate seat by rallying his radical base, rather than admit he was wrong to vote for the war and admit this occupation has failed because of PRESIDENT BUSH. Schaffer is no different than Bush.

  1. I really do! But this administrations efforts to control the message and seriously punish those who stray from the administrations line is so….communistic! I’m in my 50’s and remember clearly the press deriding the secrecy and media control in the former Soviet Union. Does this administration remind any other CoPols reader of the former Soviet Union in their attempts to squelch free speech?

    To be fair, the lockstep Republicans never spoke out over the last six years about these methods, and the Democrats have been all too quiet about it too.

    A heavy gloom descends over the whole country when our government becomes so secretive and our first amendment rights curtailed. It’s been a scary ride these last six years. I never thought I’d see it in America!

    1. Sadly enough some of the most corrupt and henious actions that have occurred are not secret. From no-bid contracts to houses in Aspen, the money for nation-building has been swindled by Dick Cheney’s friends.
