Gut Rumbles

April 20, 2006


Leftists love to call President Bush a "chickenhawk" because he never fought in a war. That's really clever, isn't it? When it comes to name-calling and finger-pointing, Democrats have no equal.

But when it comes to taking a firm stand against a certified nut-ball who brags about developing nuclear weapons, the Democrats balk, saying that they don't wish a "rush to judgment." Bullshit. The cowardly turds are just laying low to see which way the political wind blows before they decide how to react. That's real leadership.

Asked about Democratic strategy on Iran, the aide said, “The strategy is simple: Give the Republicans enough rope and they’ll hang themselves."

See? Ya gotta have your priorities straight. The real issue isn't about what a crazed bunch of Iranians might do with nuclear weapons--- it's about how Democrats can take advantage of the situation for political gain. Bejus! Now we know what's REALLY important in the world today.

Wanna hear some mealy-mouthed mush-speak? Listen to what Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee had to say.

“All I'm saying is I remain skeptical,” she told an intelligence panel. “Lots of unanswered questions and conjecture that I have is that if I were Iran and I wanted to put out disinformation, it might look a lot like what our government is claiming is information.... I want to be absolutely sure that we base decisions, especially tough decisions like what are the next steps with Iran -- and I surely hope they are diplomatic because I think those are our best options -- on pristine and pure intelligence, or the closest we can get to that.”

“I have no question that Iran is a dangerous place, so don't let me tell you that there's any doubt in my mind,” Harman added. “The issue is how capable are they, and what are the real intentions of Iran's leaders? And I think the jury's out on both of those.”

Harmon is described as "outspoken" and "cogent." Gag me. With a spoon. I would describe her as "evasive" and "confused." We get the usual mewling about "diplomacy," which worked so well on Saddam Hussein, and then the navel-gazing about not knowing the "real intentions" of Iran's leaders. (Which can't possibly mirror their threatening rhetoric. They wouldn't actually USE nuclear weapons, even if they say they will. That's unthinkable! Yes, it is to some sheeple.)

This kind of "talk a lot but say nothing" crap is bad enough when Congress is toiling to pass some wasteful spending bill or another generous tax dollar giveaway program. But we're talking serious shit here--- NUKES IN IRAN--- not some pork-barrel legislation to build another bridge in West Virginia and name it after Robert Byrd.

A nuclear Iran is exactly the kind of problem we should expect our elected representatives to handle with an eye toward the future of the WORLD, not the outcome of the next election. But you see what we get.

Just one more reason why I won't vote anymore.


I guess that also means liberals think that male obstetricians and abortionists should quit their jobs since they are incapable of being pregnant.

I'm in no way defending the Dems but be fair. Both sides do their share of fingerpointing and name calling. The kooks and vandals live on both sides of the fence.

And don't let me tell you otherwise...

a little over 2000 years ago the Roman Republic bit the dust because of power hungry politicians. Afer a long civil war during which ole mark Antony got layed by a skinny Egyptian queen the Romans ended up with an Emperor for the next 600 years or so..most of them crazier than run over dogs.

What has this got to do with the price of eggs in China. Nothin' (do you think they are worth the wear and tear on a hen's butt?) History actually doesn't repeat itself so I don't figure that any Roman is gonna wind up Emperor of the USA. But speedy Gonzalez might if the clowns in DC don't stop the flood of illegal immigration.

From what I understand the Jets Bush flew in the TANG were called widowmakers by the men that had to fly them. Bush wore our countries uniform. He operated a dangerous piece of equipment for the military. He did more than his required minimum for service time.

I disagree with him on a lot of stuff, but a chickenhawk he ain't.
