Go Murtha Go

CNN's Wolf Blitzer's interview Sunday with retired Marine Col. and Congress Rep. John Murtha really nailed down the facts about Bush and his quagmire in Iraq.
Anyone remember Bush saying during his first campaign that he wasn't into nation building? He lied then and he's still lying now.
Murtha said Saddam has been deposed, elections have been held; now it's time to get our troops the hell out of Iraq.
The Iraqis don't want us there.
They won't learn to fight insurgencies if American troops are there doing it for them.
They have their democracy now, it's time for them to take off the training wheels and do the work of growing THEIR version of democracy for themselves.

Bush's contuinual ranting about his demands for victory in Iraq is ridiculous.
He has no plan. He can't even define what a victory would look like.
He doesn't know what he's doing, and never has.
He speaks of democracy but he denies it to the American people by his illegal, unconstitutional activities.

Anyone who still believes in Bush as a leader is seriously delusional.
Murtha completely debunked Bush today, without rancor and with old fashioned common sense.

Bush is giving yet another speech tonight. Recycling cliches and meaningless slogans, no doubt. Anyone care to make bets on how many times he mentions 9/11?

One more thing-
I am sick of Bush saying he "takes responsibility" for this or that fuck-up.
Taking responsibility means a willingness to admit mistakes and an
implied effort not to repeat them.
"Staying the course" and "taking responsibility" are at direct odds with this assclown.
He may not get the distinction, but the people do.
