Bush & Rove-Thermos Bottle Magic

It's amazing. Our President and his advisors are sooooo stupid--according to the left, but they keep coming up with brilliant, diabolical schemes-also, according to the left.

The Bush-Rove team acts like a thermos bottle. A thermos bottle can keep things cold--and, Bush and Rove can be stupid to them. A thermos bottle can keep things hot--and, Bush and Rove can be smart. As the joke says, "How do it know?!"

The latest entry on Bush-Rove thermos bottle magic comes from Arianna Huffington, who connects the White House problems in Iraq (stupid) to the media deflecting attention over JonBenet Ramsey (smart). How do they do it? Our buddy Arianna writes:

Thank God for the JonBenet story. We may not be getting any closer to solving the disaster in the Middle East, but at least we didn't have to hear much about it last week. ...When you've basically screwed up the world, and you're headed into a heated anti-incumbent election, it must be a gift from heaven to have a story that, essentially, shuts down the delivery of news.

And, if you doubt the connection to the White House, look at this comment from "LordMoon" under her post.

Without a doubt, this little bit of news was a Rove operation. After all, wasn't all the work done by Homeland Security?

Maybe LordMoon's last name is Bat.

It just kills the left if there is any news that takes attention away and interferes with their goal of overthrowing the Bush regime--as they call it. Nothing is more important that that. Why we might have to cancel the World Series and the Super Bowl so that people will be forced to stay focused on Bush crimes and stupidity. No one can be happy or have fun as long as we're in Iraq and Bush is President! Got it! Be miserable!

Why, even our soldiers in Iraq need to know how miserable they should be and what a failure their efforts for democracy have been--so, cut off all sports broadcasts beamed to our troops in the mideast until they understand. Are they going to believe what their own eyes tell them or view the situation through the lens of U.S. media and the left? The troops can just watch CBS and have no entertainment until we cut and run pull out. This is just another way that the Democrats could "support the troops."

It must be awful for liberal activists to go through life with few people taking them seriously and, worse, laughing at them. In the meantime, I'll still be concerned for our nation, but my life will go on--and, things will work out better than the doom and gloom crowd predicts.

Well, back to the original issue, maybe Bush and Rove are smart. And, compared to ideas of the Democrats, anything looks smart. Hey! Maybe Bush and Rove are behind the Democratic Party, too!


Tip of the hat to reg for inspiration of this post.

York, no one is required to serve in the military to have a voice in government or to serve in positions of leadership. And, I don't remember this being a problem with the Democrats when Clinton was in office.

One reason that no one is required to serve is because we still have a volunteer army--much to the disappointment of the Democrats, who used that lie to scare young people and parents. Remember that?

As much as I sympathize with widows, their positions of having been married to dead soldiers do not give them any more special wisdom on foreign policy than the left-wing professional widows of 9-11 victims have on Bush.

But, while the grieving hurts, most military families are proud of their sons and husbands and support the causes for which they died--unlike the left which would tell you that there is little to die for and that the men of grieving families died for nothing, which they didn't. If you don't believe that, ask the widows of the people tortured and murdered under Hussein.

It's interesting to note -- I guess GW is the "New" York, heh -- sorry, puns are a weakness of mine -- where was I? Okay. It would be interesting to note that in scores of accounts I've read by U.S. soldiers either serving in or having served in Iraq, and Iraq vets (including a few amputees I met at Walter Reed last fall) I've met or know as friends, belief in our cause in Iraq as just has been unanimous.

The NYT and other liberal media don't talk to these guys -- they'll walk past 1000 soldiers until they find some disgruntled reservist who is P.O.'d because his tour's been extended by a couple of months, and treat him like he's a spokesman for every soldier and marine in Iraq, and they'll ask him leading questions in order to milk exactly what they want out of him.

Those young people are over there because they want to be, and G-d bless them all. The fact that in-Iraq reenlistments exceeded expectations last year.

Long and short of it, York?

Portsiders like yourself who attempt to depict our troops as "victims" of the evil Bush Administration and undermine the mission they believe in strongly enough to put life and limb on the line for are nothing more than sleazy opportunists using our military deaths and whatever else you can come up to further a political agenda.

You know it, every liberal politician knows it, every left leaning newspaper editor knows it, but the truth and liberal politics are lines that don't intersect anyplace.

There has been statistical data released fairly recently that actually shows that the very large majority of young people serving in Iraq are white males from families that are far from poor.

What you're citing is more of the same liberal propaganda.

The poor folks of which you speak, Mr. York, are less likely to enlist these days because the poor belong to the Democrats and listen to all the bumper sticker B.S. from the left.

Huffington does not accuse the Bush administration of using the JonBenet Ramsey coverage for their advantage, she only laments that the media focus distracts from Bush's errors. To find the "connection" that shows the left thinks Rove is a genius, Woody relies on the public intellectual known ownly as LordMoon, as fair a representative of liberal thought as one is apt to find.

To recap, some one named LordMoon thinks Rove is a genius and Arianna Huffington thinks our media is paying too much attention to JonBenet Ramsey. Woody's done it again. I better stick to GM's posts.

York, be very careful... if you get full of it, I'll start deleting your posts and permanantly ban you... at least have enough guts to post your own name... wimp!

As I remember, an arrogant, rich bastard got us into WWII, what does that have to do with anything? As for the disproportionate number of soldiers from poor backgrounds, if that is indeed the case, well, the obvious solution to that is to adopt a draft army, but I don't imagine GM going for that idea. I think it's going to be necessary, though, if the U.S. is to remain the world's policeman (which I hope it does).

In Israel, where I live, we have a draft army, and I have to say that while it imposes substantial burdens on the society, there are also significant benefits. Kids grow up faster and are often more serious and more mature than their counterparts elsewhere. It's also directly responsible for Israel's prowess in high tech, which is a main driver of the economy.

The 'blame Bush' for everything crowd would have everybody believe that Bush is to blame for everything bad. I think that the hate-mongering left would believe that Bush is responsible for bad weather, skin cancer and terrorist attacks by Islamofascists if they were told so. Wait a minute...they DO believe this crap because they were told so by the whacho left. Never mind.

York, you are indeed a wimp... you've been outed, use your own name. As for Seth, that is his name, he blogs at Hard-A-Starbord and he call's em like he see's em.

You want volunteer? Why didn't you volunteer York, instead of keeping your fingers cold in mountain streams hunting for fishies?

The service would have done you good, though it probably would have kicked the stuffing out of you and you probably would have been discharged "for the good of the service." I enjoyed my time, tough though it was, at Fort Polk and Fort Benning... Of course, I was quite familiar with Benning having lived there twice when dad was stationed there. My dad lived at a number of military posts as a kid, though mostly calvary posts as my grand father was a career soldier too, as was his father... see yorkie, I come from a long line of soldiers and two of dad's three sons served and the third one didn't because of open heart surgery at the age of 13.

So, don't come in here with your wimpish crap... as you once said "Grow A Spine Man."

MarkC, I'd be for a draft if they did it like they do in Germany.... Universal Service two years beginning at age 18 or graduation from high school then at age 18, no exceptions/deferments. Or, like Israel, universal service for both boy's and girls.

Posted by GM at August 22, 2006 06:28 AM

G.M., you and I split on the universal service issue. Taxes aren't voluntary, but our lives should be.

One is the taking by the government to fund programs. The other is involutary servitude for matters extending beyond national defense, since national defense is already being covered. Are you going to let people like John Kerry tell you what "voluntary" programs qualify?

If something is worthwhile, people will volunteer for it or contribute to it on their own. If it's not worthwhile, the government may still force you to do it at the point of a gun.

Oh, you have been assigned to the global warming task force and to be an advocate for the Kyoto Protocol. Al Gore is your director.

Woody, do you have to paint such a grim scenario this early in the A.M.?

Algore as the boss? The homeless and hungry alternative begins to sound attractive!

I first I wondered what Arnold Palmer was saying about global warming, when I realized York meant the governator. Fine. I'm glad he's on board. Let him ruin California's economy and drive businesses to other states.

Posted by Woody at August 22, 2006 03:19 PM

Woody, we will have to remain split. No, I don't believe in the draft, the draft was selective and easy to get out of. York, I had a P-3 Profile on my vision, glasses required at all times, still was able to join. Partially Deaf, but that didn't get "caught" until I was in OCS and then they "discovered" that I was ineligable for "enlistment, retention, or commission" but the army was willing to let me "re-enlist" if I signed a waiver.

Universal Military service, boys and girls, two years no problem. Draft or "alternative services" is a deal breaker as far as I'm concerned.

York, yeah, Kyoto is such a strawman that the Senate refused to consider it on a vote of 95-0, the majority of those that did sign it are violating it left and right... strawman...

Hmm, you said you weren't a wimp, now I see you signing your real name... I guess the wimp designation fit huh?

"No I was answering your charges against me, via the other guy. When you talk about people by name they'll show up. Blind and deaf eh? I guess they must have been desperate at the time. In 1972 they weren't. The party was over."

York, you are a pathological liar. I've traced your IP address to your street, and guess what, ole GW has also the same address.

The consequence of your lying, your pathological spewing of left wing crap and inane comments is that all of your comments, and the comments of all of your pseudonyms and alternate identities will here by be erased. You are one sick puppy York.
