This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

History Will Vindicate President Bush


History will vindicate President Bush and will denounce the groups and individuals that suffer from Bush Derangement Syndrome and in recent days, the Palin Derangement Syndrome.

I have proof positive of my assertions for several decades that the Leftinistra can never admit ever being wrong about anything. Back in September, Sen Lieberman and Sen Graham issued the following resolution:
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senators Joe Lieberman (ID-CT) and Lindsey Graham today urged the U.S. Senate to adopt a bipartisan resolution that recognizes the reality of the strategic success of the surge in Iraq:

"It was exactly one year ago today that General David Petraeus returned to Capitol Hill to testify before Congress about the progress of the surge in Iraq. At the time, many members of the Senate argued that the surge -- despite growing evidence of its success -- was not working and should be abandoned. One left-wing group, Moveon.org, even made the despicable and outrageous accusation that General Petraeus would try to 'cook the books' to justify the surge when he appeared before Congress.

"One year later, it is clear: the critics of the surge were wrong.

"Had we heeded their advice to retreat from Iraq in 2007, the United States would have suffered a catastrophic defeat in the heart of the Middle East that would have had terrible consequences far beyond Iraq for years to come. Fortunately, we did not abandon General Petraeus and his brave troops, and as a result, the situation in Iraq has completely reversed. We have witnessed substantial progress on the political, economic and military fronts. Our enemies are weaker, and America is safer.

"We congratulate the Iraqi people for coming together in the face of so much adversity to further the peace and prosperity of their country. We honor their sacrifices and share in their desire to continue to build on success.

"The situation in Iraq remains fragile and complex. The war is not over. Our two deadliest enemies -- al Qaeda and Iran -- will seize any opportunities we hand them to come back.

"However, because of the strategic success of the surge, more and more American troops are coming home, not in defeat, but in honor.

"In withdrawing our troops from Iraq, however, it is critical that we do not jeopardize the hard-won gains they have achieved. That means any withdrawal must be based on the recommendations of General Petraeus and our commanders on the ground, not on an arbitrary timeline invented in Washington. Our brave military has fought too hard, and sacrificed too much, for American politicians to throw away the gains they have achieved with an arbitrary timeline.

"What is needed now, therefore, is not more partisan politics over Iraq, but for Democrats and Republicans alike to come together and recognize reality: to acknowledge that the surge was not just a tactical success but a strategic success; to give thanks to our courageous men and women in uniform who made it possible; and to pledge that we will do nothing that might squander these hard-won gains.

"For that reason, we have introduced a bipartisan resolution that recognizes the reality of the strategic success of the surge. We hope that the Senate can unite to take up and adopt this resolution this week, on the one year anniversary of General Petraeus' testimony before Congress and as he prepares to depart Baghdad to take command of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM). The moment has come for the Senate to speak with one voice and admit the strategic success of the surge."
The result? Crickets. They refused to support this Resolution. Why? Because it would show that they were wrong about something. Their inability to acknowledge The Troops has shown that not only do they not support the GWOT that they originally did support, they also do not support the Troops or their Mission. It is all fluffy rhetoric for political gain...political power.

Czarbie, after forced into a corner by his own inability to think on the fly, admitted that the Troop Surge succeeded "beyond our wildest dreams". He has been waffling ever since.

They called the War In Iraq a separate war in the GWOT citing that the "real" war was in Afghanistan forgetting that President Bush stated many times that "we will fight this war on our terms and not the enemy's terms". The United States wrestled control of the war declared against us and fought it and is still fighting it on our terms. Much like McCain-Palin has "stolen" the Czarbie Hope and Change monicker from him, President Bush stole from Al Qaeda and all of the other terrorist groups the When and Where. If that nuance has escaped you, well, more's the pity...for you.

In the WSJ today, in part:
[...] The reality is that success in Iraq has confounded the political left, which placed a huge political bet on our defeat. Senator Reid famously declared the war lost in April 2007. Joe Biden introduced a resolution opposing the surge. And Hillary Clinton said the reports of progress in Iraq required "a willing suspension of disbelief." In the Democratic narrative, our troops in Iraq are victims of a lost cause, not heroes. They're allowed to get maimed and killed, but not to succeed.

Thus Democrats are left to argue that success in Iraq is irrelevant because the real fight against al Qaeda is occurring in Afghanistan. Or that the reduced violence in Iraq has resulted not from the troop surge but from the Sunni Awakening and the retreat of the Sadr militias. [...]

[...] The Lieberman-Graham resolution is a chance for Democrats to show that their support for the troops is more than rhetorical. It changes no policy and in that sense is only symbolic. Yet it is precisely the political symbolism of admitting they were wrong that is stopping the Democratic leadership from letting it come up for a vote before the Senate adjourns. Unfortunately, the last thing that Democrats want to discuss in this election season is success in Iraq. [END]
Indeed. I have been preparing to publish evidence of the complicity of Sen Reid and company in the American casualties amassed during The Reid Clan treasonous rhetoric while emboldening and enabling and encouraging the enemy to advance their political careers. It is beyond shameful.
