Dems Play Mock Hearings

Cankles is boredAn AP photo, with the caption: "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., listens to witness testimony at the Senate Democratic Policy Committee Hearing regarding Iraq Monday, Sept. 25, 2006 on Capitol Hill in Washington."

 She looks like she really gives a shat, eh?

 Every photo about these sham hearings, based more on partisan politics and demeaning America, along with their "let's win by painting America black" rhetoric, is accompanied by "Retired military officers bluntly accused Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld of bungling the war in Iraq, saying U.S. troops were sent to fight without the best equipment and that critical facts were hidden from the public." Yawn. Same ol' same ol'.

Kinda reminds me of John Conyers (D-Outer Space) basement hearings on the Downing Street Memo. What ever happened to that, anyhow? 

I'm reading the book Politics Lost: How American Democracy Was Trivialized by People Who Think You're Stupid, by Joe Klein (which I HIGHLY recommend), at the moment, and he has a great line about the Democrats

Shrum clones didn't have all that much to say about national security, except they were for "strength" in the world (though very often not for the use of strength). 

'Nuff said.

Well, more said, from Ogre.

    I’ll have to get that book. I just started reading “Women Who Make The World Worse”, I’ve had it forever. I keep buying them but don’t have the time to read them. I run about a year behind.

    What the ‘generals’ are really after. (A group of comments)
    Mr. Dorgan, how about doing your damn job as a U.S. Senator and focus on defeating our enemies instead of increasing your own personal political power at the expense of American lives?

    I guess Dorgan has been watching the overthrow of an elected government in Thailand. I fully expect the democrats to try a violent overthrow the U.S. government. It seems that several former military officers (Clinton promoted PC idiots) are actually comitting treason on a daily basis to cover up their failures during the 90’s. They have a problem, ‘most’ members and former members of the military would shoot the wrong way since they know the former officers are all failures. Solution, no democrats.

    It sounds crazy, but then again, it sure looks like the lead up to a coup, doesn’t it? If you were planning a military overthrow (followed, of course, by elections), you’d have to first get some military leaders on your side.

    Intersting thinking Ogre…I think this about sums it all up. All these stupid committee meetings that waste so much money, time, effort.

    Is it a coincidence also, that this report about how Iraq has sprawned more terrorists gets leaked to the NYT???

    It’s all an attempted coup!

    What else can you call it? The coup may only be in the planning stages, but I’ll bet that’s because they haven’t been able to line up enough CURRENT military behind them yet.

    “I listen to my Democrats friends, and I wonder if they are more interested in protecting the terrorists than protecting the American people.”
    Majority leader John Boehner

    Politics lost is great. It is about the nuts and bolts stuff in politics, like polling, that screw it up.

    That’s an interesting take on the issue. I’m sorry I missed that convo.
