Bullshiat. Call me when the fake swift boat veterans arrive.

Because People in power are Stupid: Bullshiat. Call me when the fake swift boat veterans arrive.


I had to explain / show to a co-worker last month how the Swiftboating was all bullshiat / fake. He had never even heard the rebuttals and even though Kerry admitted that he didn't earn any of his medals. He still maintained at the end "I heard that at least one of the purple hearts wasn't real."

That's weird because most of that sounds true, which is kind of the opposite of what happened to Kerry.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in an interview that he thinks Romney should use his speech Tuesday to "go on the offensive - to point out that the president never mentions victory in Afghanistan, but talks about withdrawal. That has clearly encouraged the Taliban and extremists. The level of violence is up."

Victory in Afghanistan? Anyone have any idea what those words would mean?

Yawn. At some point, we'll get around to policy differences and people will ultimately decide on those.
All these "rally the troops" innuendos just energize the yes-men surrounding the candidates.

Yes, getting out of Afghanistan before we are drained to collapse, like the Soviets were.

Wait, there's a misinformation campaign suggesting he didn't really carry out lots of important, dangerous missionary work while he was in France? What a despicable smear!

Heh... I thought this was going to be primarily about Romney's propensity for flip flops.


Also, I'd say Kerry, for all his faults, actually served his country while Romney was "slumming" it in France and Kerry has probably forgotten more about foreign policy and diplomacy than Romney knows.

Well, why did Obama send us into Afghanistan if it was only to withdraw? Old men with chairs wan to know!

A war hero in charge of the military would have been a disaster? You libs first attacked McCain for his VP choice, and claimed he'd be dead of something within a year. Yet here he is, still healthy (and I might add Palin would have had almost 4 years on the job intense training, she'd be ready) and the best you can do is attack McCain's military bona fides?

"Victory in Afghanistan" is something that will never happen unless you nuke the site from orbit. They don't want the west involved in their business. Only Kabul and the other cities want western involvement. I say we offer the people who want a more western lifestyle a chance to settle elsewhere, then pull out. Let the Pushtuns have it. It's easier.

Ask the British and the Soviets. The British pulled out and left the Afghans alone, bombing them if they wandered over the border. There never has been victory in Afghanistan. Makes me doubt the right even more if they cannot grasp this basic fact.

If you wanted long term occupation of a nation of scary looking Muslims with little to no chance of "victory" in order to pad military services contractor's bottom lines and foment fear at home, wouldn't Afghanistan be an ideal choice?

When it comes to more militaristic elements... it's not about the 'military', it's about the troops. The men and women in uniform. I don't believe that Romney comprehends that. Even the lack of service in his family doesn't knock him out on this topic, but his lack of understanding that it is the citizen soldier as the most critical aspect of our military is unfortunate.

These are not drones in a factory, but the folks who volunteer to be put in harms' way. The US has a small cult of awe around the Uniformed Services. Failing to pay proper lip service, especially when you're running to be at the head of that military, and more importantly having little plan on how to manage that military and it's ongoing missions, is sad.

It's the NBA all-star who misses, yet another, easy lay up.

Oooh good trap, John. If you trick Obama into mentioning any victory in Afghanistan then you can come back with a blizzard of ads about how he's clueless on what's going on there, and he didn't win any victories, the troops did so why is he taking all the credit?

Instead of using this very solemn and sacrosanct anniversary and to solemnly swear to fulfill your sacrosanct duty as CiC if you're elected and then spend 20 minutes blowing smoke up our armed service's, cops' and firefighters' collective assholes, you should politicize the whole mess and talk about how shiatty public unions are and then rail on how shiatty Obama is for catching Osama bin Laden and letting these men and women go home to their families.

And they both come from wealthy backgrounds, are perceived as being out-of-touch, have made statements that would be considered "flip-flopping" on issues and have a platform of being "not the incumbent" that plays well with the base, but is unpersuasive to moderates who don't consider the president to be Satan.

Surely, he should listen to President McCain. My friends, this is the guy who had the political instincts to have his photo op birthday party while New Orleans drowned. This is the man who, in the face of the greatest financial crisis of our lifetime, suspended his campaign. John McCain is the person who had the saavy to select an unvetted beauty queen and sports reporter to be Vice President of these United States. My friends, it's decisions like those that got him in the White House. Why won't you listen to him, for Pete's sake?

There's also the approach used by Ghengis Khan:

1) invade with an army larger than the native population
2) kill every man, woman, child, and farm animal you can find
3) leave fortified garrisons behind

...which apparently gets you about a hundred years.
At which point, the garrisons revolt.

Except that Kerry actually did go to Vietnam, was a decorated war veteran, and the attacks against Kerry were utterly false, it's exactly like that. Yeah, remember all the Democrats insulting wounded and dead soldiers by wearing Purple Heart band-aids? Me, neither.
