John Edwards says that "pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African-American male population in America. They’re all going to be in prison or dead. One of the two."

Why do Democrats have such low expectations for black America?

Thankfully, black Americans aren't nearly as racist as the pandering Democratic politicians seem to be.

To the extent that there is African American crime, resulting in young Americans going to prison, the root cause of such behavior is nearly entirely attributable to the overwhelming lack of fatherly influence in the black community.

Oh, and by the way. More young blacks are in college than are in jail.

'leftie girls are easy'

So says 'an ardent Barack 'I want to bomb Pakistan' Obama supporter,' who 'doesn't expect to be going home alone' from tonight's Barack Obama rally in Washington Square Park, or the official and fancy 'Barack in NYC After-party' at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club.

On tap tonight: 'Socially conscious, well dressed, well-groomed Liberal hipsters,' interested in Democracy, the Magic Negro and Hooking Up.

So, Leftie girls are easy and Democrats are stupid.

hump night in new hampshire

In light of yesterday's disclosure that Bush is advising Democrats to keep their rhetorical options open with regard to Iraq, it is indeed interesting to see that many of the Dim-witted presidential candidates are taking said advice.

From the AP:

"The leading Democratic White House hopefuls conceded Wednesday night they cannot guarantee to pull all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by the end of the next presidential term in 2013.

"I think it's hard to project four years from now," said Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois in the opening moments of a campaign debate in the nation's first primary state.

"I cannot make that commitment," said former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina."

Like either Edwards, or the Magic Negro have a shot in hell to win. (The two empty suits preen for the cameras, above)

Apparently, the President failed to advise Chris Dodd and Bill Richardson, because they claimed they'd do differently. Like pull the troops out, or something.
"I'll get the job done," said Dodd.

"I'll make sure the troops are home by the end of my first year in office," said Richardson."
Front runner Hillary Clinton said she'd she'd have to ask her husband.
"I'll talk to him later," she said with a smile.

ahmadinejad

There are no gays in Iran? Do you know why?

They kill them, either by hanging, stoning, dropping from the highest perch or by halving them with swords.

Giving this man an international platform -- inside the United States, of all places -- giving him legitimacy, by allowing him a forum at 'a prestigious American university,' like Columbia, only props this Hitler up in the eyes of our enemies.

'apart from politics'

Most of what has been written and spoken about President Bush since 2000 has been inaccurate. We've been told that he's dumb, he's illegitimate, he lied about the war, he manipulated intelligence, etc.

So, I find it absolutely amazing that Bush, supposedly the most partisan guy in the history of Presidential politics, is said to be advising Clinton, Obama and other Democrats on Iraq policy.

Said the President:
“We have an obligation to make sure that whoever is interested, they get our point of view, because you want somebody running for president to at least understand all perspectives, apart from the politics.”
It's hard to imagine any Democrat ever being this gracious. For them, there is nothing 'apart from politics.' Not even what is best for the country and the world.

Given the circumstances of what he inherited, history will one day judge George W. Bush to have been a great President. Today, we can say, with assurance, that he is a great man.

gus

All of this amuses me.

GQ runs a mean, angry hate piece on Don Rumsfeld, while deciding to kill a negative story on Hillary just so they can be assured of having Bill on the 'Man of the Year' December cover.

And Stanford faculty and students are attempting to deny Rummy a fellowship at the Hoover Institution.

So where are we? We have the typical biased media coverage of a former Bush Administration official.

Check.

We have the continued inexplicable hero worship of a terrible president.

Check.

And we have the oh-so-intolerant Liberals of academe in full meltdown mode yet again.

Check.

Meanwhile, Rummy bought his wife a mule named Gus.

proven correct

From Michael Barone:

"The response to Petraeus and the emerging story about the Israeli air strike lead to two conclusions, both at odds with what has been the dominant narrative. It's a dangerous world. And we can make progress. Advocates of speedy withdrawal from Iraq talk as if there would be no bad consequences afterward, as we face no other threats in the world. But the possibility of a nuclear Iran is a real threat, one which Bush says he gives as much attention to as Iraq. The success so far of the surge strategy and the apparent success of the Israeli air strike indicate that there are things we can do to meet those threats.

"The dominant narrative is that we are headed to defeat in Iraq, and Bush's political adversaries want him to acknowledge that. With stubbornness or steadfastness -- call it either one -- he has refused to do so and now has started to establish a different narrative, "return on success." Voters may come to understand that however delicious the Democrats find defeat, its consequences in a dangerous world would be devastating."

'escorting ahmadinejad'

Mike Bloomberg apparently has decided not to run for President.

Will someone please tell me why we even allow fascists like Ahmadinejad and Chavez into our country?

Why the hell wouldn't Bush step in and deny entry to these two creeps?

greenspan 2.0

The big news yesterday was the report that Alan Greenspan said that the Iraq war was 'largely about oil.'

The press got it wrong. The clarifications are running today. Look what Greenspan ACTUALLY said with regard to Iraq.

From Bob Woodward in the WaPo:
"Greenspan, who was the country's top voice on monetary policy at the time Bush decided to go to war in Iraq, has refrained from extensive public comment on it until now, but he made the striking comment in a new memoir out today that "the Iraq War is largely about oil." In the interview, he clarified that sentence in his 531-page book, saying that while securing global oil supplies was "not the administration's motive," he had presented the White House with the case for why removing Hussein was important for the global economy."
Unfortunately, a major part of American national security is minimizing any possible disruption in the international oil markets.

The MSM's hysterical need to undermine Bush at every opportunity is disconcerting. But, of course, there's no such thing as Liberal bias.

deep discount

This is for those of you who doubt the existence of media bias...

The New York Times gave MoveOn.org a 50% discount on the 'General Betray Us' ad that ran on Monday, yet they balked when the Giuilani campaign demanded the same discount on an ad they want to run in tomorrow's paper.


It's remarkable to think that the Times has no problem charging a political candidate with whom they disagree $180,000 for an ad, while charging a political organization (backed by the unlimited wealth of George Soros) with whom they agree only $65,000.

The Times won't even guarantee will Rudy's ad will run...

But there's no such thing as media bias.

good news

The President was great tonight, again. And the Left is wrong, again. The facts on the ground in Iraq are indisputable.

As he has done consistently over the last six years, Bush once again reached across the aisle to the Democrats, urging them to work in concert with the Republicans for the good of the country and the world.

The best news of all...5,700 troops will be home by Christmas.

9/11/07

From Judith Miller in today's UK Telegraph:

"Why has al-Qa'eda not repeated the attacks it staged in New York and Washington six years ago to the day? Because it can't.

"That is the only partly reassuring consensus of some of the experts who tried hardest to warn Washington about the danger posed by al-Qa'eda and militant Islam prior to its devastating strikes on September 11. Richard Clarke, the anti-terrorism adviser to two American presidents, Michael Sheehan, New York's former deputy police commissioner who headed the State Department's anti-terrorism effort, and others who sensed the danger long before it became obvious, assert that offensive and defensive measures taken since that terrible day have not only severely degraded al-Qa'eda's ability to stage another terrorism "spectacular", but have made American cities and targets less vulnerable."

Thank you, Mr. President.

bobby

Meet the next governor of Louisiana: Republican Congressman Bobby Jindal.

He's just 36 years old, he barely lost to the incompetent boob Blanco four years ago and he's a common sense genius.
"(Jindal) faults the state's bureaucratic culture for the slow pace of rebuilding since Katrina. Congress has allocated ten of billions of dollars, he says, but "a very small percentage" has reached struggling citizens and businesses. "The federal government's got its own complicated set of paperwork. But then after you finally navigate that, for the first time ever, (Louisiana) created its own additional bureaucracy on top of that -- they created it after Katrina -- and so a lot of these projects, their fundings' been approved...and that money's getting caught up in Baton Rouge."
That completely discredits all the Bush critics.

bullcrap

Hamas launched a missile strike on an Israeli military training site, wounding 69 IDF soldiers.
"We consider this a victory from God for the resistance," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said on Hamas radio. "We consider the resistance as the legitimate right of the Palestinians to defend themselves and restore their rights."
I'm loving this 'religion of peace.'

a real icon

GQ also talked to Rummy. And from the tone of it, I take it that writer Lisa DePaulo doesn't like the former Defense Secretary all that much.

i for 'idiot'

I've never been particularly fond of career bureaucrat Colin Powell. In a new interview with GQ, he shares his thoughts on terrorism:
"What is the greatest threat facing us now? People will say it's terrorism. But are there any terrorists in the world who can change the American way of life or our political system? No. Can they knock down a building? Yes. Can they kill somebody? Yes. But can they change us? No. Only we can change ourselves. So what is the great threat we are facing?"
The greatest threat? Uh, terrorism.

What a dumb thing to say on 9/11.

What are we fighting in Iraq right now?

Terrorists!

But wait. Powell, rocket scientist he is, also thinks that America, should 'focus on welcoming newcomers,' to 'improve our image in the world.'

Like we're not welcoming? A country of 280 million citizens, with two huge open borders to the north and south? That's about as welcoming as it gets.

"America could not survive without immigration," he says. "Even the undocumented -- (my emphasis) ILLEGAL -- immigrants are contributing to our economy. That's the country my parents came to. That's the image we have to portray to the rest of the world: kind, generous, a nation of nations, touched by every nation, and we touch every nation in return. That's what people still want to believe about us. They still want to come here. -- THEY ARE STILL COMING HERE -- We've lost a bit of the image, -- I WONDER WHY. COULD IT BE BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU, MR. POWELL? -- but we haven't lost the reality yet. And we can fix the image by reflecting a welcoming attitude -- and by not taking counsel of our fears and scaring ourselves to death that everybody coming in is going to blow up something. It ain't the case."

If I had immigrated to the United States, worked my ass off at a job, or two jobs, or three jobs, learned the language AND did everything by the book to become an American citizen, I'd be extremely offended hearing boneheads like Powell speak with such reverence about people here illegally, mooching off the system.

happy anniversary

Homeland Security Secretary Mike Chertoff believes that 'weapons of mass destruction, small boats packed with explosives and Islamic radicalization are the greatest threats facing the country' today.
"The enemy is not standing still. They are constantly revising their tactics and adapting their strategy and their capabilities," said Chertoff. "And if we stand still - or worse yet, if we retreat - we are going to be handing them an advantage that we dare not see them hold."

scandalicious

This Norman Hsu thing is a big scandal, eerily reminiscent of the Chinese fund-raising scandals the last time a Clinton was in the White House.

Now the Clinton campaign is now giving back $850,000 of Hsu-bundled money AND they are going to put major fund-raisers through 'criminal background checks.'

How noble of them. Hillary is such 'a strong leader.'

I'm just wondering how long it will be until we learn that Sandy Berger, the guy who stole (and destroyed) original Clinton-era terrorist-related documents from the National Archives before testifying to the 9/11 Commission, is one of Hillary's top advisers?

Not long at all. Here it is.

bad form

The future of the so-called 'Democratic Party' is invested in American defeat in Iraq. That's why you see garbage like this.

General Petraeus is so highly regarded, the Senate confirmed him unanimously nine months ago.

brainiacs

Wednesday night's GOP debate on Fox News Channel got the highest ratings of all the presidential debates thus far.

Could this possibly have had anything to do with the fact that Brit Hume and Chris Wallace ask tougher, more substantive questions?

ABC and NBC just pelt the Democrats with softball questions. It's boring.

wwbld?

"You permitted Bush to complete his first term, and stranger still, chose him for a second term, which gave him a clear mandate from you -- with your full knowledge and consent -- to continue to murder our people in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then you claim to be innocent! The innocence of yours is like my innocence of the blood of your sons on the 11th -- were I to claim such a thing."
"People of America: the world is following your news in regards to your invasion of Iraq, for people have recently come to know that, after several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven't made a move worth mentioning. On the contrary, they continue to agree to the spending of tens of billions to continue the killing and war there."
So says Osama bin Laden, who has opted for a younger look in his new video commemorating 9/11.

entrance

Fred? I think he's a good man, but his entrance into the race concerns me because I don't think he can beat Hillary and he might potentially steal votes away from my guy, Rudy Giuliani.

I'm a Rudy guy because he can win. I'm a Rudy guy because he'll kick ass, he'll focus on national security and he'll cut taxes.

Thompson is not going to carry California, New Jersey and New York. Giuliani will carry those states and he'll beat Hillary, which, in these tenuous times, is really all that matters.

oh, the hypocrisy

What's this? "Alpha-Environmentalist"Al Gore and a fuel guzzling private jet?

That's gonna cost him buttload of carbon credits.

huh?

"The Bush report? We know what is going to be in it. It's clear. I think the president's trip over to Iraq makes it very obvious. I expect the Bush report to say, 'The surge is working. Let's have more of the same.' "
-- Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL).
Just four weeks ago Durbin conceded that 'the surge of American troops has led to military progress in Iraq.' Now, he's reversing. Either he's changed his mind or is just suddenly re-engaged in more shameless political posturing ahead of General Petraeus' report.

Either way, he's a pig.

hanging in anbar


"Today, Anbar is a really different place. The level of violence is down, local governments are meeting again, police are more in control of the city streets, and normal life is returning. The people of this province are seeing that standing up to the extremists is the path to a better life, that success is possible. And soon I'm going to meet with some of the leaders here in Anbar province who have made a decision to reject violence and murder in return for moderation and peace." -- President Bush, in Iraq, Labor Day '07.

exactly

The Weekly Standard's Matt Continetti writes about an August 17 exchange between 'a woman with short brown hair' and Rudy Giuliani in New Hampshire:
"(The woman) said she didn't understand how being "on offense" in the war on terrorism "means having 3,500 of our troops being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan." She said she didn't understand "that way of thinking." "We're not accomplishing anything," she said. "And we know that."

"He not only tackled the question--he also took on the questioner. "I would say just the opposite," Giuliani said. "I would say we know that we're accomplishing things. But I would not tell our troops in Iraq that they're not accomplishing anything. I think that's a terrible thing to do."

"The woman tried to interrupt.

"No, no, no," Giuliani went on. "You got to let me finish the answer now. You asked the question, let me finish the answer. You might not like the answer, but you got to let me finish it. I think it's a mistake, both substantively and emotionally, both, to tell our troops that they're accomplishing nothing in Iraq--and a very serious overstatement. Which I think comes from, in a large way, the way in which the media covers it. I think they"--the troops--"have accomplished a great deal in Iraq."

"American troops deposed Saddam Hussein, "who was a major pillar of support for Islamic terrorism," Giuliani said. The victory in Iraq helped convince Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi to give up his weapons of mass destruction and terrorist support--"another major achievement of the men and women who you say are accomplishing very little in Iraq." Third, Giuliani said, fighting Al Qaeda In Iraq and al Qaeda remnants in Afghanistan so far has prevented Islamic terrorists from again striking America."

President Giuliani.
