Carol Platt Liebau: More Jackson Inanity

More Jackson Inanity

It's amazing how some of the most divisive politicians in America are the ones constantly bemoaning our lack of unity. Exhibit A is Jesse Jackson, whose piece is a spurious rehash of every left-wing canard that's been propagated over the past five years and one day.

Jackson always seems to tip his hand; he remarks right at the outset that "[The terrorist threat] is not the worst threat we face." In fact, he's more worried about the U.S. trade deficit, global warming, and pandemics. No doubt many Democrats share his view, but have decided it would be impolitic to be as forthright as Jackson.

He follows up with a paen to the national unity that was, in his view, harshly dispelled by the President "playing politics" with the war on terror. No doubt Jackson has forgotten that the first political move was made by Tom Daschle, who asked why nothing had been done in Afghanistan (unfortunately for him, on the eve of the actual invasion) and went on to play such politics that the Bush Administration, rarely given to the harsh partisan rhetoric beloved by President Clinton, finally called him an "obstructionist" (to the great dismay of The New York Times).

CBS News notes that Democrats were opposing the President as early as October 6, 2001. Presumably, the "sacrifice" that Jesse Jackson is angry that people werent' asked to make would be a tax increase to pay for the $75 billion "stimulus" (read: boondoggle) package that Tom Daschle wanted.

As for a "war of choice" in Iraq -- well, if the Democrats think that one of America's enemies can sit on a stockpile of WMD (as the entire world believed Saddam had) that had been used before (for example, on the Kurds) and do nothing, then they're crazy. In such a situation, where diplomacy has failed because of bribery and duplicity on the part of "allies," it strikes me that war isn't a "choice" . . . it's a necessity.

But maybe that's just another area where Democrats differ from Republicans. Vote accordingly.

America is smarter than the left wing trolls that patrol your comment pages.

The lefties entire hope lies with left wing polls that are taken to get their specific desired results.

Republicans will still be in the majority come November, and the nashing of teeth with continue in your comment pages...keep up the good work Carol.

Carol, you'll find alot of what you consider great leadership at AA meetings. They are all really very expericenced at reinventing reality to hide their disease. Bush has not recovered from his 20 years of being a drunk. He is not a leader even with the most warped understanding of what those characteristics are.

America is much grander and stronger than you Carol could ever imagine. You are the one who is weak, denigrating yourself with childish name calling and attempting to make some wacko statement by using ring wing propaganda sources. Voters will not act as you think because unlike Bush, his cabal and his dwindling supporters, they are not chickenhawks acting out of fear and smear which is all Bush has ever offered.

Editor's et. al. protests against Carol remind us again of our era’s peculiar alliance: the most violent, intolerant, militantly religious movement in modern times has the peace movement on its side.

Only because the "peace" movement wants POWER.

Editor, you and all other lefties (name calling,I know, but I can't help it)
live such sour and depressing, dark, doom and gloom lives, how can you stand it?

Sorry, Cliff you are the ones crying in your diapers that caveman, bin Laden will end our civilization and is the equivalent to the Nazi Wehrmacht. Where is bin Laden's military industrial complex, his tanks, his warships, submarines, fighter jets, intercontinental missiles, etc?

Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld have lead the US in the wrong direction. Iraq is out of control, Iran, North Korea, and Hezbullah are stronger and can not be dealt with as our troops are in a quagmire, a civil war in Iraq. The number of terrorists has more than doubled since 9-11 when the world stood with us.

One does not win hearts and minds with shock and awe, secret prisons of torture, and crimes against humanity or by screaming Islamofacst every other breath and insulting a religion with three billion followers, who have not wished us any harm.

Approximately 70 million fought in WWII. The best estimate is that there are now 50,000 terrorists in the world. So let us hope the retardicans came calm down the rediculous crazy talk.

It is plainly apparent that the Neocon's agenda of world domination has failed and was totally crazy from the start. History has proven the world rejects these madman very quickly. And so we have mad George Bush's legacy.

You radical right wingers are the UN-AMERICANS selecting a 20 year drunkard to be your leader and still supporting him after it is know around the world that he established secret prisions of torture. What would Jesus say about this madness?

We're happy! We hold all three houses, about 60% of governorships and we WILL keep those percentages after November and in 08!
Grumble all you want, but your hatred, bigotry and meanspirited tone will not win you anything anymore!
Thank God for that!

Oh...and I might add that your party's lame attempt to squash free speech and use dem thugs in congress to threaten ABC News, was enough to seal the dems fate in November. Word of advice, work on "regime change," in your own party before selfrighteously pointing your finger at anyone else!

Additionally, I have every right to be outraged at Bush's incompetence, negligence and corruption.

I have every right to be outraged by a US President that establishes secret prisons of torture, endlessly break US laws and lies and misleads us into an elective war on cherry picked and dead-wrong intelligence.

I have every right to say Bush is a war criminal, has commited crimes against humanity and is no longer fit for public office. I state this proudly and loudly.

And no Cliff, I am not a lefty and neither are many of the 70 percenters that have decided to reject Bush and his never ending failures, lies, and delusions of grandeur.

Cult like puppet? You seem to be the one cheering on anything Carol writes or Bush does. You've never once wrote anything that suggests you actually think for yourself, stand for anything but are just a follower. And you have never cited anything to support your support for the latest GOP talking points.

You sir are the one who is cult like.

Cliff, indeed.

As in, 'We've marched right off one by following the biggest bumbling buffoon in history.'

You are the one whose shrill tone suggests brainwashing. The kind of dumb loyalty that comes only from severe cognitive dissonance.

It is one thing to stand next to an open sewer and pretend to not smell anything. It's quite another to start freaking on those who point it out.

You are the one who leads a dark and gloomy existence void of independent thought.

Editor,I am a Conservative first and, more often than not, the only party that comes close to representing the values and standards that I believe is the Republican
Party. I have issues with President Bush, like his weakness on border
security,or that he signed that reprehensible, McCain-Finegold, free speech killing bill, and his idea that ignoring or not challenging his political opponents will make them
become more respectable and
reasonable towards him. I could list a few others, but those are at the top of my list.

I believe in small government, states rights, minimal taxes, individual responcibility, free interprize,freedom of association rights, strong borders, strong private property rights, tort reform, and Religous and Church rights, and I could go on. Editor, what principles do you adhere to?

"Cliff, indeed."

"As in, 'We've marched right off one by following the biggest bumbling buffoon in history."

Did you know that George Bush placed higher on his college entrance exam than John Kerry or Al Gore did on theirs? I hope you're not mistaking his slow Texas drawl as that of a,"slow learner," because that would not be, "Compassionate" it would however display a sad moment of, shall we say, "ignorance" on your part though, and you would be the one looking like a buffoon.

One more thing. Anne Richards, Bush's dem opponent when he ran for Texas Governor, said of him, "My advice to you (Gore) is, DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HIM!"

That advice has been proven to be true time after time, since 2000, and still people try to trip him up, but to no avail. As a Texan, he knows how to set a clever trap! How do you know that his, "bumbling" isn't just a clever Texas trap?

7:58 PM  
Blogger Cliff said...

Has it ever occured to anyone that maybe Bush's
"bumbling" is just an act,
designed to trip up his opponents? God really is on his side, and with God on your side, "Nothing is impossible" as the scripture says.

Wow, Cliff, you really have marched off the edge.

I do not underestimate the little man's ability to manipulate people with fear, slander (which he jobs out so he can keep the aw shucks thing going), and stoking the basest biggoted instincts of others while cloaking himself in religion.

He is preeminent in that respect.

But for you to suggest that his staggering incompetence at EVERYTHING he has attempted is somehow a clever deception is too dumb to be funny. You can have a mulligan. Maybe you should log off before hitting the sauce.

President George W. Bush will go down in history as being one of the best and most respected presidents in this country's history!

Duke and eddy. Talk about drinking the koolaid. Hey eddy! Carol isn't a name caller, I am, you freakin' putz. But then so are you and dukie, constantly railing on about Bush without any serious support. A lot of moonbat links, but no real support. BTW, you're drooling again.

As to the thread, to which eddy never seems intelligent enough to stick, the Wrong Rev. Jackson appears in the Chicago Sun-Times far too regularly and I make a point of never reading his nonsense. I can't take his eddy-like view of the world. I expect more out of a major metropolitan newspaper than such drivel as his.

Since Carol doesn't have the integrity to uphold her own policies and reign you, I can only say calling me a "Penis" is denigrating yourself and showing us you're developement ended pre-junior high level.

You never offered an argument. Simply calling me a lefty means nothing. Especially when Republican Senate and House candidates refuse to be seen with Bush and the GOP are supporting moderates realizing the conservative don't have a chance win this November.

Actually - a Putz is a Horses Penis.

Blogger Editor said...

Actually it is vulgar slang for penis. Interestingly coming from Marshall who claims to be a church elder. It is the equivalent of calling a woman a c_nt.

But since it comes from a right winger, Carol will ignore the grade school potty mouth name calling.

The American Heritage dictionary defines "putz" in three ways:

Slang-a fool; an idiot.

Vulgar slang-a penis.

Precise slan-eddy-boy.

OK, I made the last one up. But what kind of fool or idiot assumes the worse of two choices for himself. Clearly, and eddy might know this if he didn't spend so much time making stupid assumptions, I use the word to mean "eddy", I mean, "idiot". And I mean it in the most clinical sense of the word. Do you need "idiot" defined and clarified for you eddy, or do you just gravitate to words like "penis"? Sheesh. What a putz!
