Your last paragraph says that the response to the SOTU speech was favorable. I disagree.
What is your source of objective data? The Rasmussen report states, based on their polling, that the SOTU had no effect on the 56% of Americans favoring reducing the number of our troops in Iraq.Comment Posted By wittwcl On 25.01.2007 @ 15:42
It is interesting to read this article and the following comments.
There are lots of negative labels and insults
directed to the Left. There are also some questions about why we are so divided..............I wonder why.
It would be helpful if we were united in the WOT instead of involved in critizing the other side. Where are the people and politicans reaching out to the other side, to other Americans?
It seems we are more interested in being right than in beating the terrorists, especially if we are looking foward to another attack to "prove" we were right.
If we do not hang together, we will hang separately.Comment Posted By wittwcl On 10.09.2006 @ 22:18
Seems like the narrative is working.
Re the latest CNN poll:
...... when asked if Bush should be impeached, 30% say yes.
During the Monica Lewinsky imbroglio, just 19% of Americans initially thought Pres. Clinton should go. That was in February of 1998. At the height of the scandal, 29% of Americans thought Clinton should get the boot.Comment Posted By wittwcl On 8.09.2006 @ 23:45
Pakistan is harboring the killers of 911 and the Father of the Islam Bomb and they are our
Instead of controling Pakistan we are stuck in Iraq.
We need a new direction.Comment Posted By wittwcl On 6.09.2006 @ 22:11
Bush never missed a chance to get Osama because he never looked prior to 911.
Given the failures re Osama of BOTH administrations the following article is tragic:
Major General Shaukat Sultan Khan, press secretary to the president of Pakistan, tells ABC News that -- if found -- Osama bin Laden won't be arrested, as long as he promises to behave like a "peaceful citizen."
"If he is in Pakistan, bin Laden 'would not be taken into custody,' Major General Shaukat Sultan Khan told ABC News in a telephone interview, 'as long as one is being like a peaceful citizen," report Brian Ross and Gretchen Peters at ABC's blog, The Blotter.
"No, as long as one is being like a peaceful citizen, one would not be taken into custody," said Khan. "One has to stay like a peaceful citizen and not allowed to participate in any kind of terrorist activity."
"The surprising announcement comes as Pakistani army officials announced they were pulling their troops out of the North Waziristan region as part of a 'peace deal' with the Taliban," reports ABC.
Pakistan will also be returning many Taliban prisoners and seized weapons.
According to VOA, "security experts say Afghan insurgents and remnants of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorist network have managed to establish several bases in the region."
The president also said that "we're working with friends and allies to deny the terrorists the enclaves they seek to establish in ungoverned areas across the world."
If true, very, very, sad.Comment Posted By wittwcl On 5.09.2006 @ 21:55
