We seized all of Saddam's massive stockpiles of nuclear weapons, caught Osama bin Laden hiding in Baghdad spooning with Saddam, U.S. troops were out in six weeks, and the war paid for itself.  Just like Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz promised.

SUCK IT, LIBS.

When my wife and I got divorced, the kids ended up hating me and refusing to speak to me, I lost more money than I had, my lawyer screwed me over, and she got the house and the dog, but it went on the record in open court that she did, in fact, sleep with my business partner. She finally admitted it! I won! Also, I got the DVD collection.

Isn't it odd how everybody stopped keeping a death toll of Americans killed overseas after January 20, 2009? But then, as the great lady once said: What difference does it make?

I once got stung by a hornet, so I punched a wasp nest as hard as I could. Man, was that a messed up nest when I was done. I really showed them what a boss I am.

Sure, I got stung a few hundred times, but I think the wasps agree that I ultimately won the fight against their nest.

Anyhow, it was best to fight the wasps over there, so I wouldn't have to fight them over here.

Here I thought it was the biggest mistake ever, by the most evil president ever. At least that's what I've been told again and again by our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left.

Stopped reading here. Nothing of value can come after this. Though my eyes did drift down to where the guy who wound up in charge of Iraq is very glad he wound up in charge of Iraq. Good to have an unbiased cross-section of the Iraqi people tell us that.

On the other hand, I do appreciate that he acknowledges that I am his moral, ethical, and intellectual superior.

Yemen to that.

So a baseball goes through a guy's window. He ignores the group of boys running away and instead knocks on his neighbor's door. He's had a strained relationship with his neighbor for years, and despite a lack of evidence, he knows his neighbor is behind the broken window. He demands that his neighbor hand over his son and all the sports equipment on the premises. The neighbor claims that he has neither a son nor sports equipment. The man proceeds to beat the neighbor to death and trashes his house in the process. He spends so much time over the next few years scouring the remains for the alleged son and sports equipment that he loses his job and his wife leaves him. Eventually he gives up his search and returns home for good. Then a street gang turns the blighted property next door into a meth lab.

With his lip quivering, the man whispers to himself, "Victory."

Problem: Your mismanagement of the country from 2000 to 2008--exemplified in the public memory by your hubristic, fraudulent, and unbelievably costly invasion and occupation of Iraq--shattered public trust in your party and handed your opposition a simple and effective way to discredit your policies a full decade later.

Solution: Declare victory.

themindiswatching: 20 years from now they'll admit that Iraq was a mistake, but we "would have won if we stayed in longer".

/much like what they say about Vietnam from time to time.


You give them far too much credit.  20 years from now, the Republicans will insist that Iraq was all Clinton's idea from the very beginning, and the failure of Iraq falls squarely on the shoulders of the Democrats and Barak "Shaq and Mohammed" Fartbongo.
