Only Soldiers Who Lean Left Worthy of Trust By Dems



Soldiers that tow the party line are automatically granted full respect, moral authority and unquestioned loyalty by the Dems. These are examples of such obeisance to certain military men.

All three of them opportunists willing to trash their country and the military they once served in for political gain. Their service and their medals are pointed to by the left as they swoon over every anti-Bush tirade. Yet, give the left a military man with impeccable credentials that says something they disagree with and suddenly they are not so respectful.

Give the Dems a man like General Petraeus, who has such a sterling reputation that he was unanimously voted by the Senate to become General. Although there were 19 no-votes, nobody voted against his confirmation. He appears in a highly decorated uniform before a joint Congressional committee today to give his assessment of the situation in Iraq. Yet the Dems undercut his report before he even opened his mouth, and shamefully branded him a liar during the report.

It is hoped that most people will be able to see through this farce by the Dems and recognize they are delusional and willfully ignoring reality. They are so invested in defeat in Iraq, that they cannot admit to even the slightest progress. Here, General Petraeus declared significant progress and the Dems resort to their usual clownish actions. They do not LIKE what he has to say, so they reject it. Wouldn't it be nice to simply reject reality in a similar manner when it comes to bills, taxes or a parking ticket. Simply declare it is not so and poof! it goes away. So while the Dems live in their fantasy world, the thinking public sees them for what they are. They have been bought and paid for by the anti-war left, and they must do their bidding.

    Criticising their country's foreign policy is not the same as hating the country, AICS.

    You are right, but criticizing foreign policy does not insulate somebody from accusations of hating their country.

    I do not label everybody who criticizes foreign policy as such. Only those who exhibit beyond doubt that they have placed their political interests above the interests of the country. These three have taken away all doubt long ago.

    Plenty of thinking people arrive at the exact opposite conclusion, correctly assessing the widening breach from reality the right finds itself in.

    There hasn't been a rosy scenario on Iraq that you haven't championed and endorsed, is there. To date, that make you wrong many, many, many times. You're wrong here, too, in many ways.

    You can say Democrats are invested in defeat, or you can say that for most part they have been right about Iraq from the very beginning. What a surprise that you take the divisive route, loyal parisan to the end, deflecting blame, inverting reality, strapping the blinders on ever tighter.

    paw,

    Well I have looked at over 400 of my 680 posts and did not find anything that even remotely resembles a rosy picture of Iraq. In fact in one of my more recent posts on Iraq I say:


    While things have not and are not rosey in Iraq, if all were behind the cause nearly all would view the situation winnable instead of through a defeatist prism. The concept of "lost" is only based on the lack of will (personally and politically) to continue.


    I have always pictured Iraq as winnable, but not without sacrifice and determination. So your premise that makes me wrong many times simply is not so.

    ...or you can say that for most part they have been right about Iraq from the very beginning.

    Ahem. In the beginning, many of the Dems voted for the authorization to use force in Iraq.

    What a surprise that you take the divisive route

    Divisive for pointing out the divisiveness of liberals by branding Petraeus a liar just because they don't like his message?

    paw, you are the one that is blinded by your bias. Also, I find it funny when you talk about my post after post. Your blog has one post that says nothing. You started to do something there, but I guess decided it is far easier to just cut the writing of others down. Come on, stick your neck out for once and write something you have to defend.

    AICS,
    DO you fully discount the GAO report?

    mojo,

    I have not read it. Over the years I have not been too impressed with the GAO.

    If what they say is at odds with what Patreaus said, is there any reason you would believe them over him?
