Tweet Of The Day

It’s a short article. The conclusion:

And it’s not simply that [the Bush administration] failed to find the weapons of mass destruction that they worried could one day be passed onto terrorists. It’s that a terrorist organization now controls a territory about the size of Belgium, raising the possibility that America’s invasion and occupation inadvertently trained the fighters and created the vacuum that will lead to al Qaeda’s successor organization.

And all this cost us trillions of dollars and thousands of American lives.

It boggles the mind that any of the so-called experts associated with this travesty are given any credence in 2014.

    Remember when Howard Dean was “too extreme” to be president because he opposed invading Iraq and supported gay rights? It sure sucks to be correct about things before you’re supposed to be correct about things.

    Tell me about it; it’s a burden I have to bear, but it does offer some calm satisfaction. I’m certain it sucks even more being a conservative, where even though you’ve been proven incorrect about things, you are still unaware you’re incorrect about things.

  3. Meanwhile, the knucklehead conservatives can’t be bother to click on the link to the (very short) article. I guess I left out the most important, obvious part of Klein’s article:

    The totality of the Bush administration’s failure in Iraq is stunning. It is not simply that they failed to build the liberal democracy they wanted. It’s that they ended up strengthening theocracies they feared.

    I sense that Bush apologists are getting tired of having that point out. Nevertheless, they should be beaten over the head with it, repeatedly. They truly remain in denial of their culpability, their own actions. Dick and Liz Cheney’s WSJ op-ed is a perfect example.

      Cheny’s the gift that keeps on giving. I hope he continues to regale the public with his pearls of wisdom, because all it accomplishes is to remind people of what a horrible time it was to have him and his confreres in power and how dreadfully incompetent and corrupt his administration was. Who takes that jackass seriously? Only the bitter dead-enders like the stooges at bfv, and they would never vote for a Democrat anyway.

      BTW, some liberal media we have, huh? Bernie Sanders, Chomsky, Dean and so many others who were right about the Iraq war are all over the airwaves while the neocons who brought us this mess are ridiculed and ignored. Oh, wait….

    ISIS Terror Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Was Released By Obama from Camp Bucca in 2009

    Not so fast, tard:

    “In 2008, while reducing the numbers of US troops in the country, Bush signed an agreement with the Iraqi government that mandated that all detainees be handed over to Iraqi forces. In accordance with this agreement, Baghdadi was transferred to Iraqi custody in 2009, and by 2010, the Iraqi government (for a reason not explained publicly) had set him free.”

    Like everything else about the shitstorm that is Iraq, this too is easily traced back to Bush. Own it, shitheel.

    The pointy heads at bfv are going retro and reaching into their stale bag of bullshit. They are, once again, pretending to be outraged by Obama’s phrase “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming America” in a 2008 speech shortly before his election. They make it seem like Obama fell vicim to a type of Communist Tourette’s and inadvertently revealed his master plan to shape this country into some kind of 21st century Gulag. Of course, they’re lying, as 15 seconds on the Google machine will show you. Obama’s “troubling” phrase was merely a piece of boilerplate campaign rhetoric. In full context, it’s he makes it crystal clear what kind of transformation he’s talking about: from decades of broken politics, greed, irresponsibility, and failed politics to jobs and rewards for the middle class. Shocking! Wake up Sheeple!

    It’s amazing they think this type of deception will still affect the average, sane voter. Shows how desperate they are. Here’s a clue guys: you tried this one six years ago and since then Obama has been elected President twice. And who was the first commenter at bfv to tear into the red meat served up for gullible rubes? Cluster!

    Obamas words in context:

    “I just have two words for you tonight: five days. Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington, and eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, and 21 months of a campaign that’s taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

    “In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor.”

    Still sticking to your story that Obama’s statement was unprecedented, eh Cluster? Wow, you sure are adept at confabulating hidden meaning in what normal people view as pedestrian campaign blabber. It’s typically dishonest of you to not provide Obama’s entire quote which indeed shows his statement to be unremarkable boilerplate. Politicians who campaign that the status quo is unacceptable and they will bring about sweeping change is the epitome of boilerplate rhetoric, and as old as Democracy. Clinton ran on “It’s Time to Change America” in ’92; did you clutch your pearls and have the vapors with that one? But if you mouth breathers wish to decipher Orwellian undertones in humdrum campaign speeches, by all means, go bananas. I actually find it quite amusing; after all, it worked so well for you the first two times he was elected!

    BTW, Sparky, I’ll give you a pro tip: you should really google the term “agnostic atheist” before you continue to expose yourself as an uneducated ass by insisting that the term doesn’t make sense or no such thing exists. If you do google the term, what you will find is hundreds of articles discussing the common, ancient, and well-understood philosophical position of being an “agnostic atheist”. Conversely, can you provide even a single reputable source that affirms your view that the term is nonsensical? No? Is that because it’s only nonsensical to ignoramuses like you? Yes.

    Also BTW, why are you too chickenshit to debate me on your own blog? Is your ass still sore from the last time I spanked it?

      It’s beyond me how anybody can still pay any attention to these world class jack-offs. Scott Walker suspected of criminal activity. McDaniel getting into a shouting match with a constituent. DA getting closer to Christie. Palin more disgusting than ever. Joe Walsh getting thrown off of his own radio show and George Will being asked to leave as well. Wm Kristol continuing to insist that Iraq was a success until Obama and his arm of black ninjas started to give $ and arms to the terrorists. What more proof is needed? These people are a danger. Lets prove Glen Beck right and put them all in a FEMA camp.

      • rustybrown2012 says:

        Sounds good to me. Once they are eliminated it will be easy to achieve our goal of fundamentally transforming America and rewarding the middle class! Mwahaha MMWWWAAHAHAHA!!

      • mitchethekid says:

        Yeah. We can be like Snidely Whiplash. Rubbing our hands together as our evil plan is successfully carried out. I’m convinced that progressive are neurologically more evolved than these ignorant conservative brutes. Neanderthals of the modern age. If I was Obama I’d lose it and start to beat the fuck out of some of these people. Beginning with Donald Trump and Limbaugh. I’d make Limbaugh play basket ball until he has a coronary. Then I’d tell Trump that I’ve been banging his daughter. In the oval office only the oval shape I saw was her mouth.

    Ama has a huge problem with the turn of phrase I used to summarize Obama’s boilerplate campaigning, ‘rewards for the middle class’:

    But really, folks—-REWARDS for the middle class? Really? You mean like awards for just showing up? This has to be one of the stupidest comments ever

    No, Ama, it’s not. But what you just wrote surely is.

    Aside from the fact that my characterization of Obama’s words was completely accurate, Ama seems to be confusing the definition of ‘reward’ with ‘award’, as in ‘unearned award’. Oxford Dictionary defines ‘reward’ as:

    A thing given in recognition of one’s service, effort, or achievement

    Hilariously, Ama apparently seems to think homophones mean the same thing, and Cluster, ever the stooge, agrees.

    Here, again, are the words from Obama that are in question:

    “In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor.”

    Yeah, sounds to me like Obama is championing well earned rewards for the hardworking backbone of this nation. So let it be noted that Ama and Cluster are officially against all of these things and find them extremely stupid. That, coupled with their desire for more American lives and treasure poured into the Middle East, should play well on the GOP campaign trail. Keep up the good work, guys.

      She also said she worked in a restaurant as a manager. She despised the clientele. Are you surprised? They only thing this woman hasn’t done is to be a sex worker.
