Commander Guy Turns on Our Troops

The troops really belong to We the People more than they do Dubya. They are not there just to protect V.I.P.'S; they are around to protect us all from enemies both foreign and domestic.

But Duyba always turns real logic on its head, or actually, Rover does it for him. Prissy thinks certainly that is when they squish their message out of the Pentagon to make it appear legit.

Prissy is sure most decent Americans would be appalled by their private chats, considering the lies they are willing to tell publicly. And shame on those Generals Petraeus (AKA Gen Betray-US) and Peter Pace. Do they plot and practice to cover their wicked deeds against We the People and our troops?

Did Rover think he wasn’t so pink, that he could move silently, undetectably, like a cat burglar in a jewelry store? Or that not one of us was smart enough to catch on?

Karl probably understands money does change a lot of things, but not everything. Just ask Scooter Libby. Take criminal conduct for instance. Why it has been this administrations unwritten (?) policy.

In fact, which transgression shall we begin with? Let us see: We have lying to congress and Congress lying to the people, aka Dick Durbin. (Note to DD-all you had to say was "the prez is lying"-that was not classified)

Then there is the issue of the commander in chief, VP and defense secretary lying to the troops. Of course we also have the media, lying to everyone…and some Americans, still lying to themselves.

Notice Dubya stomping his feet to get more money for his war hole. Congress making noises, “George, next time we probably won’t bail you out-the 2008 elections, the people, you understand...” George replies, “Yeah whatever, you say that every time. Now gimmee the money.”

Here's your cash, Dubya

Prissy guesses congress wants the avalanche of phone calls, letters, and emails and visits to come to a halt. They aren’t used to We the People actually demanding things. Like expecting the majority to rule, our civil rights, and an end to the war.

Get used to it misleaders or get tossed out. Did November 2006 teach neorepublicans anything? Congress must stand up to this bully or Americans will give them no rest. Moreover, the prez really needs to stop trying to blame everyone but himself or just step down. He won't be missed, not even by his own party.

Now, he is having his pentagon disrespect the troops by telling media that as many as a third of our soldiers think torture is A-OK. Prissy does not believe this stat and neither should you. It is utter bunk and who ever put this out cannot possibly be military trained.

For the last 50 years, the US military has taught that torture is not an effective means to elicit actionable intelligence, thus Geneva that most soldiers know by heart. Do not let him fool you about the troops. Sure, there are a few bad ones-there are bad people in every occupation, as if you were not aware…

Keep up the pressure on congress because it is working. They are getting a reminder they do indeed work for us and yes, we do care about our soldiers.

So main stream media, stop printing that grey sludge the grey suits at the Pentagon and Rover’s sewage factory keep manufacturing; we are aware they wish to make scapegoats of our soldiers.

These are the same people who attempted to shame and silence those of us opposed to this quagmire from the beginning. Their claims accusing us of being 'against the soldiers’ have proven the fallacy for the premise of invasion.

Soldiers reading this blog don’t have any doubt who is really on their side.

Dubya and his boys are hoping if they degrade our troops enough, Americans will say, “Gee those are some bad people who make up our soldiers-let them rot in Iraq.”

It's not the first time they have used this "use 'em and lose 'em" tactic. It's still effective. Remember how they used to reassure suburban white people that it was "just the ghettos” being cleaned out, during the Vietnam draft?

It is all more of the same propaganda that Dubya and his media have been spoon-feeding the American people. They wonder why ratings are down and blog readership is up?

Now that the troops and “supporting them” have ceased to be a bell ringer for the Bushies, Dubya has turned on them. He always was a lousy commander-in-chief... Remember how they used "support the troops" as their code for shutting down any true debate about Iraq? Ah yes, you see this really isn’t your father’s Vietnam. These soldiers are done with his war, as the mission is a desert mirage and changes with the seasons.

The public too, is done with his war-but congress and Halliburton are still making money on the deal.

Warning to Bushies who think Prissy is making the wrong call on the war. The soldiers, all the intelligent ones are like-minded. They are clear headed in their application of strategy and they see the false construct. They wouldn’t be very good military leaders if they didn’t, now would they?

Their discipline of being non-partisan keeps most from speaking out. But Dearest Readers, this war is their reality. Their commander guy is in a state of denial and we cannot help him. Nevertheless, we can help them. We need to get them out of Iraq. We must demand their return until the last American soldier comes home.

A United States Airman in Iraq, doing his best to help in a bad situation. Obviously this guy doesn't believe in torture.

Don't you dare disrespect them, Dubya.

Prissy gives Murray credit for being one of the few honest republicans. He must be lonely...National Journal March 15, 2007 By Murray Waas,Aborted DOJ Probe Probably Would Have Targeted Gonzales

Shortly before Attorney General Alberto Gonzales advised President Bush last year on whether to shut down a Justice Department inquiry regarding the administration's warrantless domestic eavesdropping program, Gonzales learned that his own conduct would likely be a focus of the investigation, according to government records and interviews.

Bush personally intervened to sideline the Justice Department probe in April 2006 by taking the unusual step of denying investigators the security clearances necessary for their work.

It is unclear whether the president knew at the time of his decision that the Justice inquiry -- to be conducted by the department's internal ethics watchdog, the Office of Professional Responsibility -- would almost certainly examine the conduct of his attorney general.

Sources familiar with the halted inquiry said that if the probe had been allowed to continue, it would have examined Gonzales's role in authorizing the eavesdropping program while he was White House counsel, as well as his subsequent oversight of the program as attorney general.

Uh, huh...all the stuff about our bad ole troops is distraction from these rats...step back Dearest Readers, before the blow back begins. Wait until some republican senators find out what sort of dirt they were targeted with by their own team. It won't be pretty.

International Herald Tribune Congressional Republicans increasingly worry that loyalty to Bush on Iraq to prove costly

Still, Rep. Jack Kingston, a reliable Bush supporter from the southern state of Georgia, said that vote "could have been the peak, possibly the last statement of House public solidarity with the White House. As the war develops in the next two crucial months, the political solidarity may change."

A question is increasingly asked in the Capitol: how big a price might the party pay if the war continues to claim U.S. casualties without quelling the anti-American insurgency?

"We have been very supportive" of the administration's Iraq policy, Kingston told The Associated Press. But among Republican House members, he said, "There are discussions on the floor: 'Hey, 30 members lost their seats last year, and a lot of them lost because of the war.'"

You see? They still must be reminded who they are supposed to work for...

Freepress Bob and Harvey do it again! Are Rove's missing e-mails the smoking guns of the stolen 2004 election?

The major media has come to focus on a large batch of electronic communications which have disappeared from the server of the Republican National Committee, and from White House advisor Rove's computers. The attention stems from the controversial firing of eight federal prosecutors by Attorney-General Alberto Gonzales.

But the time frame from which these e-mails are missing also includes a critical late night period after the presidential election of 2004. In these crucial hours, computerized vote tallies may have been shifted to move the Ohio vote count from John Kerry to George W. Bush, giving Bush the presidency.

Earlier that day, Rove and Bush flew into Columbus. Local election officials say they met with Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell in Columbus. Also apparently in attendance was Matt Damschroder, executive director of the Franklin County (Columbus) Board of Elections.

These four men, along with Ohio GOP chair Bob Bennett, were at the core of a multi-pronged strategy that gave Bush Ohio's twenty Electoral College votes, and thus the presidency. Bennett and Damschroder held key positions on election boards in the state's two most populous counties, with the biggest inner city concentrations of Democratic voters.
