I'm Sick of "Second-Guessing Liberals"

Whenever I lose my head and read a liberal blog, I see the same repetitive anti-war comments claiming stupidity of President Bush and denouncing mistakes that he has made in Iraq. The liberals knew "from day one" what obstacles that we faced, but they just didn't mention them at the time. For example:

You can call me a “Monday moring quarterback” but I’ll stand on my record in seeing through not just the phony rationales for the war but the way its been waged and most of what’s followed from it. I understood from Day One that this debate started that the “WMD threat” was being hyped for purely political reasons. I knew from Day One that there was no strategic national security reason to invade Iraq and that we were being suckered by the neoCons’ crackpot agenda. I believed from Day One that Rumsfeld was going in with too few troops to successfully secure the country. I knew within weeks of the invasion that security was unraveling disastrously....

You get the point. From day one, the dark side had all the facts and all the answers. Right. Liberals are great at pointing fingers, but talk is cheap. What could they really do if asked before hostilities broke out?

I gave them a chance. After reading that French President Sarkozy said that diplomatic efforts to stop Iran's production of a nuclear bomb must work or that Iran would have to be attacked, I asked these left-wing liberal geniuses to prove what they could do.

For “everyone who knows all the facts and solutions from day one,” share your wisdom now on this (Iran's) WMD issue rather than wait to see what didn’t work.
Response has been somewhat quiet, but one person said that they were speaking no differently than Bush when he made a comparison of Iraq to Viet Nam, and would I attack him for second-guessing President Nixon? They never answer the question that is asked.

That's it! I'm sick and tired of their rhetoric and better than thou attitudes. Here is my rant.

To liberals and left-wingers regarding Iraq, you’re not even talking about the same thing. Bush discussed Viet Nam from a long-term historical standpoint and said that there were lessons to be learned from its aftermath. That’s different than finger-pointing and saying that the coach is doing it all wrong with each step and, in many cases, while the game is still being played and, at the same, time screaming and throwing bottles at the team and demoralizing the players on the field.

You’re already planning on halving the athletic budget when the team needs equipment and you want to yank the players off the field before they achieve victory. You’re the guys who sit by and watch the coach go for it on 4th and 2, and if it didn’t work, you say, “I would have kicked.” If the offensive line “surges” forward and the play does work for a first down, then you look the other way or say that it didn’t work despite the obvious down marker, and you hope that some idiots will believe you.

Well, if you know everything, why aren’t you coaching? Why didn’t you say something before the game was played or the play was run? It’s because you aren’t qualified and know less than you admit.

You guys are the biggest bunch of second-guessing whinners that I’ve ever heard, and you won’t even tell us what plays we should run against next week’s opponent, Iran, before that contest begins. Come on! Show us your coaching skills. At least let us know that you’re pulling for our team rather than the opponent, because it’s sure not clear.

The only people who respect your opinions and think that you’re brilliant are YOU yourselves.

Other people must sit back and laugh at the stuff that you write. I sure do.

We've made decisions with Iraq. We need to make decisions regarding Iran. Where are the wise people? Why, the Democrats, who were going to end the Iraq conflict, still cannot agree what to do to this day. Oh, they talked about it during the election (remember, talk's cheap), but they haven't done anything constructive.

The only people who are dumber than people who make bad decisions are those people who refuse to make decisions at all, because not making a decision is the same thing as letting someone else do it for you. It just gives you the false satisfaction of being able to blame someone else.

Liberals never have been good at taking responsibility. Now, we know that they aren't very good at giving advice either--just blame. I'm still trying to figure out why they consider themselves smart. That's one thing that I didn't decide for them.

Instead of "Monday Morning Quarterbacks," a better name for them might be "Monday Moron Quarterbacks."

I linked this video in the comment section of the blog, you cited in the post. Let's see what they say. ;)

Good Post Woodster. ;-)

LASunsett, I didn't mean to pass my disease of responding to liberals to you. More than once I told G.M. to shoot me if I ever commented over there again, but, to my good fortune, we live too far apart and he has given me second, third, fourth, ...chances. That's a video that I had not seen before. Thanks for sharing it. You can't imagine how shocked that I am to see that liberals are lying hypocrites.

Yep, you are crazed. Fun, though.

Regarding your tyrade about the left, i must add that those that continually repeat the same action and expect different results are the real dumb ones.
Do you suppose that a person that looks at a burning building and tries to call the fire department is wiser than the conservative that allows how the building is half burned now. so just lett'er burn. I have always thought that wisdom is obtained by learning from experence.
Now, may I assume from the forementioned rant that you support Bush and his war aims?
If you do, who's the dumb one?

I really don't get your analogy about the burning builidng. I'm sure that it makes sense to a liberal, though.

I support doing something over nothing--which is what the Democrats and the U.N. offerred. The dumb ones are the ones who do nothing but criticize and try to bring down those who are at least making an effort.

Here is a quote from a conservative bloggers site that would be good for you to repeat 1000 times.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President
right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
~Theodore Roosevelt~
