I don’t think there’s any question we need to get the heck out of Iraq. Even if you support the war, you have to admit that the ultimate goal is to leave, right?

However, is the solution to set a timetable for withdrawal? I’m not so sure. It does seem a bit idiotic to tell the enemy when we’re leaving. On the other hand, it’s becoming increasingly clear that President Bush’s “we’ll leave when Iraq is able to do ‘x’ for itself” is never actually going to get us out. Maybe the solution is to tack a timetable onto funding bills and force Bush to either veto the funding or go ahead and agree to leave.

Any insight?


I’m sure you’ve heard about the 1984 comercial spoof…here’s a link if you haven’t seen it – 1984 Comercial

The thing I find so utterly ironic about the whole thing is that an Obama supporter created it. Obama. Who would be just as much of a “big brother” as Hillary.

Pot, meet Kettle.

I must say, I am so irritated with both parties right now (as, really, I have been for a while) that I say we give them both the boot!

The Democrats are nit-picking and, in my opinion, wasting time that could be spent on, oh, I don’t know…finding a positive way to get the heck out of Iraq. The Republicans (more specifically, the White House) are looking sneakier and sneakier by the day in refusing to participate in an open hearing. Their refusal to do so is dragging the whole shenanigan out even longer, when we could nip it in the bud right now by just appeasing the silly Democrats.

Where’s a good bunch of independents when you need them?

Is anyone still paying attention to my blog? I think I’m ready to start writing again…the sleep deprivation is getting easier to handle!

So, we’ve heard about the DOJ firings now. Supposedly, these were politically motivated dismissals of 8 US Attorneys initiated by the Attorney General’s Chief of Staff and White House council Harriett Myers.

We have all seen that the White House is “too big for it’s britches” under Bush’s leadership, but do you all really think these were politically motivated firings initiated by the White House? It seems to me that it would be easy enough to prove if these attorneys were fired for poor job performance. The problem would still remain, though: why was Congress left in the dark about the firings and the communication between the DOJ and the White House?
