My Solution To The Eye-Rack War
With the report from the Eye-Rack Study Group due to be out tomorrow and with every blowhard pundit who has ever backed the war offering magical pony plans for how to get out of it, I just thought I'd offer my suggestion on how to right this wrong:
Get RID of that delusional, denying murdering sonuvabitch president from OUT the Oval office, NOW!
NEW YORK At today's meeting with reporters at the White House, the major topics for Press Secretary Tony Snow, as expected, were the pending release of the Iraq Study Group's report -- and today's surprise, the admission by Robert Gates, at his confirmation hearings as new Pentagon chief, that the U.S., indeed, is not winning the war in Iraq.
Snow said that, as far as he knows, the president has not backed away from his recent statement that the U.S. is actually "winning" in Iraq. He also suggested that Gates, elsewhere in his testimony, seemed to say that maybe we weren't losing and we weren't winning. And he charged that the press was being too negative about all this: "What I think is demoralizing is a constant effort to try to portray this as a losing mission," he said.
He was also pushed on the question of the Iraq conflict turning into a civil war -- which he seriously questioned. "Well, I think one of the dangers is that civil war had been used in a political context," he said. "It's interesting -- what intervened other than an election to get people to change the label?"
A reporter shot back: "The violence got worse, I suppose."
Snow concluded: "I said it's very difficult to figure out that there is any clear definition, and if you have one, please pass it on."
Unless Bush is removed, nothing will be achieved except more chaos and violence.
