We have to let them know they used to think General Petraeus “betrayed us” Remember the full page ad the left put out to destroy the man? And now they think he is the savior of Obama? Haa haa haa haa.
The best move? Putting a Bush “general” back in charge forgetting how hard the left tried to destroy him just a few short years ago? Okay…..here is my take…..
Where is the intellectual integrity in the press corps around the nation today? The truth is, it left them for the Orient decades ago. They do not have one ounce of it left in all of them. And that is giving them credit for something.
The press seems to think that we cannot remember what went on just a few short years ago, when full page ads were put out saying that General Petraeus Betrayed us. Like Harry Reid, when he was telling everyone that Petraeus failed. Telling us all that the surge had failed and we had lost the war. Come on people, we are not that stupid……are we? I didn’t think so. But just in case there are some out there that haven’t gotten the memo on what they are doing….let me remind you of some of the mean and untrue things that they have said and what they do say. Starting first off:
Remember that full page New York Times ad, General Betray Us?
Petraeus was hired in the first place, by George W. Bush. Remember that you lefties? Obama is always complaining about all the problems he inherited from Bush. Now he’s inherited Petraeus. He got Bush’s general, who his party and his voters hate. And by the way, MoveOn.org has removed their Petraeus ad from their website. How Orwellian can they get? But it gets better.
On January 14, 2007, on “Slay the Nation” during a discussion about the status of the Iraq war, Obama said this about Petraeus:
OBAMA: We cannot impose a military solution on what has effectively become a civil war. And until we acknowledge that reality, we can send 15,000 more troops, 20,000 more troops, 30,000 more troops, I don’t know any expert on the region or any military officer that I’ve spoken to privately that believes that that is gonna make a substantial difference on the situation on the ground.
This was said while talking of the Surge wanted by Petraeus. He said it wouldn’t work. No matter how many troops he got. But that isn’t all my friends. There is more. Like this from Biden on September 9, 2007, Meet the Depressed, with Tim Russert, Biden is asked this:
“General Petraeus said in a letter to his troops that we’ve not had the political reconciliation we thought we would have, been much slower, but there’s some hope. Then he said my sense is that we have achieved tactical momentum. We’ve wrested the initiative from our enemies in a number of areas of Iraq. We are, in short, a long way from the goal line, but we do have the ball, we’re driving down the field. Is that what you expect him to say tomorrow?” And Biden said:
BIDEN: I think he’s dead-flat-wrong. The fact of the matter is that this idea of these security gains we made have had no impact on the underlying sectarian dynamic, none, none whatsoever.
Yes my friends……there is much much much more. I am just getting started here. On September 11, 2007, on Capitol Hill during the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Iraq, Senator Hillary Clinton said this to General Petraeus.
HILLARY: You have been made the de facto spokesman for a failed policy. The reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief.
The facts speak loud and clear, which is why the left is always trying to make us forget it. They want us to forget because of the complete idiocy that seems to always flow from their mouths…..while their brains are in neutral and shut off. Prime example happened Friday. Peggy West, county supervisor, Democrat from Milwaukee, Wisconsin said this about the Arizona and Texas illegal immigration laws, and I quote her:
“If this was Texas, which is a state that (snickers) is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this, saying that they have a major issue with — you know, with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would say… I would — I would have to look twice at this, but this is a state that is a ways removed from the border.”
All I can think of with this is, OPEN MOUTH, INSERT FOOT…..ROTATE! Since giving those comments, Peggy West has tried to hide her mistake by citing her comment as “misspoken”. But, videos on the Web are pretty clear about what she said. Which should get rid of any doubts. But the laugh of this continues. Ms. West tells us on her Facebook profile, that “Mexican History” is one of her interests! For your information Ms West, Arizona also borders with Mexico. You should learn your geography before you open your stupid mouth.
But the subject everyone’s atwitter about is General Petraeus. When it comes to him, recent documented history is clear that the general from the Bush years they once hated, they’re now claiming to admire. Why the turn around? Because liberals’ only principle is promoting liberalism. They will backflip on ANYTHING to advance their agenda and save their sinking messiah. And they all think the People are too stupid to notice. Come November they’ll find out just how wrong they are.
God Bess America, her troops, her allies and her people
