What is that they have been saying?
The end to combat in Iraq?
Something like that, weeks of video clips of pulling out men (women too I am sure) and materiel… Tens of thousands of texters and video gamers, I guess they want us to think, left to control and command… and many more tens of thousands of contract paramilitaries left to do the job…
As if we have retreated to base, ceased house to house, ceased night patrols, ceased clear and hold, much less opened the prisons and released the political prisoners and the innocents, relinquished control of the air – it is we who control the air space over Iraq – we have stopped none of that anywhere in the world, including at “home”, tho Homeland is more accurate.
Oh For Fuck’s Sake… why not just dispatch Barbara to the WH with the Holy Walker Bush Oil of Office and she can annoint Obby as a younger brother to adopted son Bill C?
It smacks of obeisance to the Lord of Texas…
President Obama plans to call former President Bush on Tuesday when he visits Texas to speak to troops, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said.
Obama will address soldiers at Fort Bliss, Texas, before he returns to the Oval Office to speak on the formal end of the U.S. military’s “combat mission” in Iraq.
“I don’t believe there are plans to see him, but my sense is, it will be one of the calls he makes tomorrow,” Gibbs told reporters Monday when asked if Obama will speak with Bush.
She can say something so Barbara, so Bushian … like, ”we’ve always liked Negroes. er … Africans. Well… we like some Americans, I know that. More oil Barry?”
AND I see that Simpson survived comparing all of us to nursing calves. No surprise…
Heckuva job Obby.
I even caught the last few mins of his remarks today, and I sure missed the pounding action (maybe below camera view the podium reached out and grabbed him… ). The quote sounded more like a beg to me:
Pounding the lectern, Obama continued:
“Holding this bill hostage is directly detrimental to our economic growth. So I ask Senate Republicans to drop the blockade.”
