The Incandescent Brilliance Of Messiah Press Secretary Robert "Windows" Gibbs
Hey: breathe, buddy, breathe. You can do it!
MR. WINDOWS: Let me try this — let me — I'm going to swing a third time and see if I can hit this baseball. I'll try to do it — I know, I had to get to it.
Again, I think economic studies show — and I will endeavor to get you one of these economic studies — is that if you want to get people — through a tax cut — money that they're more likely to save — or I'm sorry — more likely to spend faster is to do so by spreading it out so that their consumer behavior is augmented by the fact that they understand that that money is coming every pay period; versus giving it to them in one lump sum where, attitudinally, they understand that it's not likely to change.
So I think that's the reason why the structure of our tax cut in terms of "Make Work Pay" is done that way. It's tilted toward lower- and middle-income individuals and families who are likely to take that money and spend it and get this economy moving
Yes, sir. The Messiah will be communicating to the press through Stupid Windows Guy until further notice.

The Law Of Messianic Consequences, Part 3
As if the world needed more proof that idiots never learn from previous idiots' idiocy, the WaPo reports that blatantly pro-union "America-first" trade provisions contained in the Messiah's non-stimulus bill could very well provoke other countries to close their borders to American trade, the same response triggered by Smoot-Hawley, which directly caused the Great Depression.
The stimulus bill passed by the House last night contains a controversial provision that would mostly bar foreign steel and iron from the infrastructure projects laid out by the $819 billion economic package.Ed Morrissey says it well:
A Senate version, yet to be acted upon, goes further, requiring, with few exceptions, that all stimulus-funded projects use only American-made equipment and goods.
Proponents of expanding the “Buy American” provisions enacted during the Great Depression, including steel and iron manufacturers and labor unions, argue that it is the only way to ensure that the stimulus creates jobs at home and not overseas.
Opponents, including some of the biggest blue-chip names in American industry, say it amounts to a declaration of war against free trade. That, they say, could spark retaliation from abroad against U.S. companies and exacerbate the global financial crisis.
This is the end result of the protectionist rhetoric of the Democratic campaign in 2008. And it’s not hard to see why they pursue it. Buy American is a slogan that practically guarantees popularity. What could be more patriotic than looking for the Made in the USA label, especially when taxpayer dollars are on the line?John Hinderaker:
Nothing, if you don’t mind killing the entire American export sector. We already have large trade deficits, thanks to our massive wealth transfers each year to oil-producing nations based on our unwillingness to pump our own crude. If we touch off a trade war, which this will almost certainly do as it violates all of our WTO and bilateral trade agreements, other markets will close their doors to American products, such as cars and technology. Instead of closing our trade gap, we will explode it, and even those oil imports could get retaliatory tariffs from our two closest trading partners, Canada and Mexico, our two largest foreign suppliers of crude...
America doesn’t need a trade war at this moment in time. We need to ensure our access to as many foreign markets as possible. Protectionism now will take us down a primrose path that we have traveled before, and the end result will be bread lines and 25% unemployment, and worldwide misery.
Once again, we see the Obama administration thrashing around like a bull in a china shop, apparently oblivious to the consequences of its actions overseas. This is rapidly becoming a pattern.As a young man my grandfather Jack pedaled his bicycle everywhere throughout his poverty-stricken, dispirited, flatlined, shuttered city, for seven years looking for work during the Great Depression. That's right: seven years. Those hellish times, which set back the fortunes of millions of families by decades, were the direct result of the same immoral, big-government, socialist, business-killing, protectionist, redistributionist, totalitarian stupidity embodied today in the Messiah and his idiot cheerleaders.
If my grandfather Jack were alive today to watch it happen all over again, he'd probably spend the next seven years kicking idiots in the nuts.
I Feel Ya, My Man
As usual when reading reader comments I’m not sure whether to be entertained or saddened. Liberal retorts to conservative views are so predictable. They most often: - Present ad hominem attacks on the author, not the ideas - Mention some vague notion of Bush’s failed policies - Are emotional rather than logical - Fail to present any evidence to the contrary - Inject homosexuality into the argument - Inject racism into the argument - Blah blah blah. This stuff is better than the Enquirer.
Gitmo Judge To Messiah: Maybe Get A Decent Legal Opinion Before Making An Ass of Yourself
The chief military judge at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Army Col. James Pohl, said that he found the government's arguments "unpersuasive" and that the case will go ahead because "the public interest in a speedy trial will be harmed by the delay in the arraignment."The Messiah was not so delighted, which is all you need to know about the Messiah.
The administration had argued that the "interests of justice" would be served by a delay that would allow the government to review the approximately 245 prisoners at Guantanamo to figure out who should be prosecuted and how, and who can be released.
"The Commission is unaware of how conducting an arraignment would preclude any option by the administration," Pohl wrote in an opinion obtained by The Washington Post. "Congress passed the military commissions act, which remains in effect. The Commission is bound by the law as it currently exists, not as it may change in the future."
The decision was lauded by some survivors of the attack on the Cole, who said it illustrated the independence of the military judiciary at Guantanamo.
"I'm absolutely delighted," said Navy Cmdr. Kirk Lippold, the former skipper of the Cole. "It proves the military commissions work without undue command influence, and this decision puts us back on track to see an accounting for al-Nashiri's terrorist acts."
The honeymoon is so over, ain't it? And what are we, ten days in?
Only government can provide the short-term boost necessary to lift us from a recession this deep and severe. Only government can break the cycle that are (sic -- is) crippling our economy. That's why we need to act boldly and act now, to reverse these cycles. That's why we need to restart the flow of credit and restore the rules of the road that will ensure a crisis like this never happens again.
In the end, the answer to our economic troubles rests less in my hands or in the hands of our legislators than it does with America's workers and the businesses that employ them. They are the ones whose efforts and ideas will determine our economic destiny just as they always have, for in the end it's businesses -- large and small -- that generate the jobs, provide the salaries, and serve as the foundation on which the American people's lives and dreams depend. All we can do, those of us here in Washington, as to help create a favorable climate in which workers can prosper, businesses can thrive, and our economy can grow.
Notwithstanding reports that all economists are now Keynesians and that we all support a big increase in the burden of government, we do not believe that more government spending is a way to improve economic performance. More government spending by Hoover and Roosevelt did not pull the United States economy out of the Great Depression in the 1930s. More government spending did not solve Japan's "lost decade" in the 1990s. As such, it is a triumph of hope over experience to believe that more government spending will help the U.S. today. To improve the economy, policy makers should focus on reforms that remove impediments to work, saving, investment and production. Lower tax rates and a reduction in the burden of government are the best ways of using fiscal policy to boost growth.

Idiots: Geez, It's Hot In Here
When George Bush tried to open a locked door after a presser in China, idiots gaaked like a cage full o' monkeys and proclaimed it yet more evidence that W was stooopid. Yesterday the Messiah was photographed trying to get into the White House through a locked window, fer Chrissakes, apparently before it dawned on Him that it was not a door.
I know, I know.
There's no confirmation that the Secret Service mistakenly took Him down- are they on the job or aren't they?.
When the Daily News and the Politico had some fun with that, the idiots at Media Nutters went apeshit (no link; not now, not ever) - and it's only what, nine days in?
Welcome to the kitchen, idiots.
The Right Thing
The Messiah has done everything He possibly could to peel off Republican House votes in order to secure cover for the non-stimulus bill; when trash-talking didn't work, He tried a photo-op with some CEOs and completely contradicted himself. When that didn't work, He switched to stroking (in seriously tone-deaf fashion to boot). What He didn't count on is that Republicans are gaining strength as voters learn how truly deceitful the Democrats have been to them in misrepresenting this mess, which is now the sole property of the Messiah, His Democratic minions and His MSM butt-sniffers.
Well. Now the Great Uniter intends to get tough again. There may be enough liberal Republicans in the Senate to eventually pass the bill, but the line between conservative Republicans and lying big-goverment socialist New Dealers of either political stripe will remain crystal clear.
Don't Tell Algore
May 16, 2008
WASHINGTON — "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times . . . and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen."
January 28, 2009
WASHINGTON — The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat. “He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there."
So contrary to the Messiah's dishonest declaration of May 16, 2008, "not leadership" is going to happen.

See You In The Emergency Ward, Genius
President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.No he wasn't; the Messiah couldn't care less about bipartisanship except to the extent that he can hide behind it while trashing the very concept. He is attacking Rush to draw attention away from the real issue, which is His overarching ambition to establish a Democrat caliphate in America under which the private sector is smothered and the public sector, in the form of a monster government, is made the arbiter of freedom and fortune.
“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.
One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts.
Byron York has Rush's response:
I sincerely hope the Messiah continues to bring Rush Limbaugh to the public's attention.
There are two things going on here. One prong of the Great Unifier's plan is to isolate elected Republicans from their voters and supporters by making the argument about me and not about his plan. He is hoping that these Republicans will also publicly denounce me and thus marginalize me. And who knows? Are ideological and philosophical ties enough to keep the GOP loyal to their voters? Meanwhile, the effort to foist all blame for this mess on the private sector continues unabated when most of the blame for this current debacle can be laid at the feet of the Congress and a couple of former presidents. And there is a strategic reason for this.
Secondly, here is a combo quote from the meeting: "If we don't get this done we (the Democrats) could lose seats and I could lose re-election. But we can't let people like Rush Limbaugh stall this. That's how things don't get done in this town."
To make the argument about me instead of his plan makes sense from his perspective. Obama's plan would buy votes for the Democrat Party, in the same way FDR's New Deal established majority power for 50 years of Democrat rule, and it would also simultaneously seriously damage any hope of future tax cuts. It would allow a majority of American voters to guarantee no taxes for themselves going forward. It would burden the private sector and put the public sector in permanent and firm control of the economy. Put simply, I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing "eternal" power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy. If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of this TRILLION dollar debacle.
Obama was angry that Merrill Lynch used $1.2 million of TARP money to remodel an executive suite. Excuse me, but didn't Merrill have to hire a decorator and contractor? Didn't they have to buy the new furnishings? What's the difference in that and Merrill loaning that money to a decorator, contractor and goods supplier to remodel Warren Buffet's office? Either way, stimulus in the private sector occurs. Are we really at the point where the bad PR of Merrill getting a redecorated office in the process is reason to smear them? How much money will the Obamas spend redecorating the White House residence? Whose money will be spent? I have no problem with the Obamas redoing the place. It is tradition. 600 private jets flown by rich Democrats flew into the Inauguration. That's fine but the auto execs using theirs is a crime? In both instances, the people on those jets arrived in Washington wanting something from Washington, not just good will.
If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of the trillion dollar debacle.
One more thing, Byron. Your publication and website have documented Obama's ties to the teachings of Saul Alinksy while he was community organizing in Chicago. Here is Rule 13 of Alinksy's Rules for Radicals: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."
Bullies And The Cowards Who Love Them
In a bizarre reversal of all their commitment to human rights and the struggle of men and women for independence and self-determination, the European Left has chosen again and again to side with the bullies and to condemn a small nation struggling to survive in a hostile neighborhood. It is all self-contradictory: The Left supports gay rights, yet attacks the only country in the Middle East where gay rights are enshrined in law. Hamas makes death the punishment for being gay, but “we are all Hamas now.” Iran hangs gays, but it is praised as an agent of anti-imperialism, and allowed to get on with its job of stoning women and executing dissidents and members of religious minorities. If UK Premier Gordon Brown swore to wipe France from the face of the earth, he would become a pariah among nations. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatens to do that to Israel and is invited to speak to the UN General Assembly.Meanwhile, Alan Dershowitz counters the left's blindness to symbolism with a dose of reality founded on one of the left's most treasured confiscations: international law. Except this international law is real:
Israel guarantees civil liberties to all its citizens, Jew or Arab alike, but it is dubbed “an apartheid state”; Hamas, ever the bully, kills its opponents and denies the rest the most basic rights, but we march on behalf of Hamas. The Left prefers the bully because the bully represents a finger in the face of the establishment? Almost no one on the Left has any understanding of militant Islam. Their politics is a politics of gesture, where wearing a keffiyeh is cool but understanding its symbolism is too much effort even for intellectuals.
Every Hamas rocket attack against Israeli civilians - and there have been more than 6,500 of them since Israel ended its occupation of Gaza - is an armed attack against Israel under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, which authorizes member nations to respond militarily to armed attacks against it.
Under international law, Israel is entitled to do whatever it takes militarily to stop Hamas rockets from targeting its civilians. Every Hamas rocket has the potential to kill dozens of Israeli civilians. Recently one hit a school just hours after the principal dismissed the students, fearing such an attack. If the rocket had hit and killed hundreds of schoolchildren, would those who protest Israeli actions acknowledge that Israel would then have the right to respond? No country needs allow terrorists to play Russian roulette with the lives of its children.
In fact, under international law, Israel has the right to declare all-out war against the Hamas-controlled government of Gaza. In an all-out war, there would be no obligation to provide humanitarian assistance, electricity or any other services to an enemy who had started the war by an armed attack.

The Law Of Messianic Consequences, Part 2
The Messiah has ordered the export of abortion to the Third World via government-sponsored NGOs. This presumably is another example of the Messiah returning America to its role of leadership in the world.
Labels: Messianic Consequences
The Law Of Messianic Consequences, Part 1
Family members of people killed on September 11, 2001, and in other terror attacks say they are outraged by President Obama's draft order calling for the suspension of war crimes trials of prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay.Respectfully, Mr. Gadiel, it has always been beyond comprehension that the idiot left would take the side of the terrorists, but that is what makes them the idiot left.
"To me it's beyond comprehension that they would take the side of the terrorists," said Peter Gadiel, whose son, James, was killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11. "Many of these people have been released and been right back killing, right back at their terrorist work again."

Messiah Bans Lobbyists Except When He Needs One To Fill A Cabinet Post
From The Swamp via Ace:
When is a ban on lobbyists in an administration not a ban on lobbyists in an administration? When you need a lobbyist who knows how the Pentagon works to help run the defense establishment.In response, an aide to the Messiah says that tough rules occasionally require reasonable exceptions (also known as Leader Imposed Expiration Sanctions). True dat.
That's the situation the new Obama Administration finds itself in. Obama nominated William J. Lynn III as his Deputy Defense Secretary in a role that would require Lynn to essentially be the chief operations officer in that mammoth bureaucracy. But Lynn was, among other things, a lobbyist for Raytheon Co., one of the nation's largest defense contractors.
To not violate the new executive order the president signed yesterday, Lynn would require a waiver from the new administration.
That would seem to violate the spirit of Obama's ban, something which numerous people, including the Project on Government Oversight, are now pointing out.
Messiah: Bush Was Right On Interrogation, CIA Black Sites, Etc.
But the orders leave unresolved complex questions surrounding the closing of the Guantánamo prison, including whether, where and how many of the detainees are to be prosecuted. They could also allow Mr. Obama to reinstate the C.I.A.’s detention and interrogation operations in the future, by presidential order, as some have argued would be appropriate if Osama bin Laden or another top-level leader of Al Qaeda were captured.Listening to the audio of the signing I noticed that the Messiah had to ask his counsel if there is an Executive Order for the disposition of the Club Gitmo prisoners. The Chief Executive doesn't know and has to ask if he has issued an Executive Order for the disposition of the Gitmo prisoners. If Bush had ever asked that, you'd still be hearing about it because Bush was so stooopid, but you never heard Bush ask such a ridiculous question- he knew what he was doing because he was in command, which the Messiah is obviously not. In fact, it sounds in the clip as if Greg Craig is the POTUS.
The new White House counsel, Gregory B. Craig, briefed lawmakers about some elements of the orders on Wednesday evening. A Congressional official who attended the session said Mr. Craig acknowledged concerns from intelligence officials that new restrictions on C.I.A. methods might be unwise and indicated that the White House might be open to allowing the use of methods other than the 19 techniques allowed for the military.
So there's some Change right there.
This is what I'm coming to think of as typically bizarre Messiah-think:
"The president believes that there's no more important job that he has than to keep the American people safe," Gibbs said at the White House press briefing room.Because The Messiah Says So™. Someone in Unicornland tell me how closing Club Gitmo, especially without knowing what they are going to do with its animal population, will enhance the security of the American people, live up to American values, or protect the men and women in uniform.
"The president believes that what he did today will enhance the security of the American people, that it lives up to our values as Americans, and that it will protect the men and women that we have in uniform," he said.
Answer: It won't. It's just stupid and dangerous political pandering to the idiot base with unknown costs to American national security, the American people and the men and women in uniform.
A) The Messiah is clearly not in charge and
B) Whatever the Messiah says something is, that something is in fact likely the exact opposite.

Reviewing A Sloppy Believer
There were some awfully clunky clichés in there. For example, here’s the second paragraph:I'll add this: I've said here before that I had the strong sense early on that the Messiah's language (and certainly that of his wife) often contains "tells" that he is speaking more to blacks, at least those who self-identify as victims, than to anyone else. His line about enduring "the lash of the whip" certainly directly goes there.Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.Gathering clouds and raging storms? Really? How did that survive the first draft? Oh, and shouldn’t that be forebears not forbearers? A forbearer is someone who refrains from something.
Also, if you’re going to use clichéd language you should at least make it track logically. According to this imagery, times of peace and times of prosperity have not coincided, unless of course rising tides can be still at the same time.
But the line that grated on me most came from the bit about service and sacrifice. He said:For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life.No, “they” didn’t. Slaves certainly didn’t endure the lash of the whip out of a sense of service and sacrifice for us. That is one of the reasons slavery is so evil; it isn't voluntary. Suffice it to say that if that line had come out of a different man’s mouth it would not be nearly so well-received. Nor did those immigrants make their sacrifices for “us.” They made them for themselves, for their own pursuit of happiness, for their families.
For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the West; endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.
This is not to say we do not benefit from the sweat of their brows and the shedding of their blood, but Obama’s rhetorical ambition seems broader than that insight. He wants to forge a new sense of collective identity. There are aspects of that effort that are admirable or defensible, to be sure. Don't we conservatives lament a lost sense of citizenship and the erosion of a common culture? But too often he comes across as wanting to take that collective vision and drape it over individualism and enterprise like a wet blanket. The pursuit of individual prosperity is not selfish and the effort to defend it is neither a tired dogma nor a childish thing. I often get the sense that President Obama doesn't see it that way, never more so than today.
There's no doubt that is what Rev. Lowry was up to.

More On The Bush Legacy
Among the things President Bush's fellow citizens should thank him for:
* Defeating Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004.
* Keeping America safe in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, when virtually no one thought such a thing was possible. In achieving this, President Bush fulfilled the first duty of his office.
* Correcting earlier (and significant) mistakes in Iraq and supporting the surge when almost everyone — the American people, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the commanding general in Iraq, all Democrats, and many Republicans — opposed his efforts. This was a textbook example of leadership and wise decision-making in the most difficult circumstances imaginable.
* Leading efforts that led to a humiliating defeat for al-Qaeda in Iraq and, more broadly, to militant Islam being on the defensive throughout much of the world, including the Arab world.
* Liberating more than 50 million people from two of the most malevolent regimes in modern history.
* Standing with Israel against its enemies and having the wisdom to declare he would not deal with Yasir Arafat.
* Adding two outstanding Justices to the Supreme Court and appointing first-rate federal judges.
* Championing a culture of life and the global AIDS initiative.
* Cutting taxes several times and never, not even once, raising them.
* Putting in place the most far-reaching reforms in education in generations, which insisted on accountabilty, high standards, and produced positive results.
* Restoring dignity to the Oval Office, acting with civility and grace, loving his country, and serving her well.

I Love The Dalai Lama
The Dalai Lama, a lifelong champion of non-violence on Saturday candidly stated that terrorism cannot be tackled by applying the principle of ahimsa because the minds of terrorists are closed.Of course, even the the Big Hitter can be wrong about some things:
"It is difficult to deal with terrorism through non-violence," the Tibetan spiritual leader said delivering the Madhavrao Scindia Memorial Lecture here.
He also termed terrorism as the worst kind of violence which is not carried by a few mad people but by those who are very brilliant and educated.
"They (terrorists) are very brilliant and educated...but a strong ill feeling is bred in them. Their minds are closed," the Dalai Lama said.
He said that the only way to tackle terrorism is through prevention. The head of the Tibetan government-in-exile left the audience stunned when he said "I love President George W Bush." He went on to add how he and the US President instantly struck a chord in their first meeting unlike politicians who take a while to develop close ties.
Referring to 9/11, the Dalai Lama said he told President George Bush that while he regarded the U.S. President as a nice person, he stood opposed to Mr. Bush’s policies. He said he had suggested to Mr. Bush that instead of spending billion of dollars in launching the war, the world would have been a much different place had these funds been utilised to spread education and health care.Different, certainly. Better? Not on your life.

This Fine Man
At the time of 9/11, which will forever rightly be regarded as the defining moment of the presidency, history will look in vain for anyone predicting that the Americans murdered that day would be the very last ones to die at the hands of Islamic fundamentalist terrorists in the US from that day to this.As for the idiots:
The decisions taken by Mr. Bush in the immediate aftermath of that ghastly moment will be pored over by historians for the rest of our lifetimes. One thing they will doubtless conclude is that the measures he took to lock down America's borders, scrutinise travellers to and from the United States, eavesdrop upon terrorist suspects, work closely with international intelligence agencies and take the war to the enemy has foiled dozens, perhaps scores of would-be murderous attacks on America. There are Americans alive today who would not be if it had not been for the passing of the Patriot Act. There are 3,000 people who would have died in the August 2005 airline conspiracy if it had not been for the superb inter-agency co-operation demanded by Bush after 9/11.
[T]he cold light of history will absolve Bush of the worst conspiracy-theory accusation: that he knew there were no WMDs in Iraq. History will show that, in common with the rest of his administration, the British Government, Saddam's own generals, the French, Chinese, Israeli and Russian intelligence agencies, and of course SIS and the CIA, everyone assumed that a murderous dictator does not voluntarily destroy the WMD arsenal he has used against his own people. And if he does, he does not then expel the UN weapons inspectorate looking for proof of it, as he did in 1998 and again in 2001.For the moral degenerates who opposed the Rescue of Iraq and would rather Saddam survived because they hate Bush and America:
Mr Bush assumed that the Coalition forces would find mass graves, torture chambers, evidence for the gross abuse of the UN's food-for-oil programme, but also WMDs. He was right about each but the last, and history will place him in the mainstream of Western, Eastern and Arab thinking on the matter. ... When Abu Ghraib is mentioned, history will remind us that it was the Bush Administration that imprisoned those responsible for the horrors. When water-boarding is brought up, we will see that it was only used on three suspects, one of whom was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, al-Qaeda's chief of operational planning, who divulged vast amounts of information that saved hundreds of innocent lives.
Today [Iraq's] GDP is 30 per cent higher than under Saddam, and it is free of a brutal dictator and his rapist sons.Thank you, Mr. President.
The number of American troops killed during the eight years of the War against Terror has been fewer than those slain capturing two islands in the Second World War.... As for civilians, there have been fewer Iraqis killed since the invasion than in 20 conflicts since the Second World War.
Iraq has been a victory for the US-led coalition, a fact that the Bush-haters will have to deal with when perspective finally - perhaps years from now - lends objectivity to this fine man's record.

What, No Wedding Guests?
Didn't hear him say anything like, "Sorry, I shouldn't have had my trained animals use civilians as human shields." Or some such.
His Hamassholeyness also "stressed that 'despite this, we knew that victory is the lot of the believers and those who perform Allah’s commandments.'"
If that's the case then why is this cocksucker so desperate for a ceasefire? Wait. I know: because it looks right now as if Allah is commanding on the side of Israel crushing Haniyeh and his fellow Hamassholes.
May Israel have the courage to drive these bastards into the sea. That's a popular theme around those parts, ain't it?
Bonus: This diamond-strength gem of truth from Power Line:
It is commonly said that by storing weapons in mosques and firing rockets and mortars from residential areas and school yards, Hamas is using human shields in Gaza, a war crime. But the truth is really worse than that. Hamas doesn't endanger civilians in hopes that it will deter retaliation; it does so in the hope and expectation that civilians will be killed and wounded.HT: LGF

One of the recurring lessons of supporting the Right Man was witnessing the reaction of those poor, angry, diminished little things every time the Commander-In-Chief would utter one of a seemingly endless supply of what came to be known, hated, and, by those of us honest enough to appreciate the man's spirit, loved as Bushisms.
Bless your heart, Mr. President. They all misunderestimated you, even while you were practising your love with them across the country.

Hamas Terrorists Hiding In UN School Cause Multiple Palestinian Casualties
Little Green Footballs:
The UN and the mainstream media are wailing and accusing Israel of war crimes (yes, again) after the IDF returned fire at a UN school from which Palestinians were firing mortars.Biet Hanoun Elementary School for Boys was the site of a similar Hamas operation in 2007 filmed by the IAF, one of countless examples.
The explosives and booby traps installed in the school by Hamas then blew up, killing dozens of people.
And the world blames Israel.
Only Islamofascist cowards do this, and only moral reprobates (in this case Hamas supporters) and their useful idiots excuse this monstrous tactic, blaming the Israelis for the murders Hamas commits on its own people by forcing them into harm's way.
For that crowd, their precious "international law" suddenly becomes irrelevant. In fact, you wouldn't even know it exists (The Geneva Accords, of course, have never applied to terrorist assholes, their supporters or useful idiots; too inconvenient, too saaahnsitive).
The Eeevil Michelle Malkin has much more on Hamas' punkass-cowardly tactics.
Islamopimp My Ride™
The next day 12,000 civilized supporters staged a pro-Israeli rally in support of Israel's self-defense against random Hamas-launched civilian-murdering rocket attacks from inside Gaza.
No private property was damaged, no flags were burned, no cars were torched, which is how you know it was supporters of Israel.
As opposed to jihad-fevered savages.

Not The Hispanic Consolation Prize Winner Obama Thought He Knew
But a pending investigation of a company that has done business with New Mexico state government promises to extend for several weeks or, perhaps, even months.A "pending investigation of a company that has done business with New Mexico state government"? Personified by New Mexico's Democrat Governor Bill Richardson, maybe?
Conservative Bloggers Do It
Michelle Malkin makes the overwhelming case against the Weekly Standard's Michael Goldfarb, who should know better, and ThinkRegress' Matthew Yglesias, who doesn't know dick about conservatives or conservatism except what he imagines.

Israel Counters The Hamas Propaganda Machine
Israeli Defence Forces and IDF Spokesperson both report developments in Gaza without first being run through the Hamas filters that leftist idiots and the MSM so love to parrot. Bonus: enemies and detractors of these two sites will have to be very careful about the charges they level against them, all of which will readily apply, much more accurately, to their own anti-Jewish, anti-Israeli smears and lies.
