More Evidence The W, Rove And Co Is Purposefully, Knowingly, and Willfully Misleading The American People

Okay, by show of hands, how many democrats are for "retreat behind our oceans and not be actively engaged in this conflict [meaning with terrorists]?" Thought so.

Again, we see that the W, Rove and Co is on full tilt spin mode to try and knowingly, willfully, and purposefully mislead the American people.

Contrary to what The Big Dick Cheney would have us believe, I think the vote in Connecticut Tuesday suggest that the American people are not going to stand for the republican brand of propaganda - that the reichwing-way is the right and the only way.

It's time for America to stand up and she is - to stipulate that we cannot solve the terrorist problem with the same leadership that brought us into the Iraqi quagmire. We need a new direction, and Tuesday was a step down the right path:
The thing that's partly disturbing about it is the fact that, the standpoint of our adversaries, if you will, in this conflict, and the al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task. And when we see the Democratic Party reject one of its own, a man they selected to be their vice presidential nominee just a few short years ago, it would seem to say a lot about the state the party is in today if that's becoming the dominant view of the Democratic Party, the basic, fundamental notion that somehow we can retreat behind our oceans and not be actively engaged in this conflict and be safe here at home, which clearly we know we won't -- we can't be. So we have to be actively engaged not only in Afghanistan and Iraq, but on a global basis if we're going to succeed in prevailing in this long-term conflict.
Methinks the Veep is misreading the democratic message, misleading us, and is up to his usual political parlor tricks. What do you think?

I couldn't agree more. They've gotten so very arrogant in their view that the positions they hold are theirs - and not to be taken away - that they don't actually HAVE to represent the people, because they know better than us ignorant masses. The Connecticut election said quite the contrary and Cheney et al need to wake up. If you do not represent the people or the opinions of those people who vote for you, you will be fired come election time. Incumbant or not. We're done.

''... al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task.''

'Will' means nothing unless you know who you're fighting. Without intel on terrorists there is no sensible fight against terror. Iraq is an example of a defect in US intelligence. Osama on the loose is an example of a defect. Retreating behind oceans, worthless as that is, is better than running around attacking people who meant you no harm.

Iraq is an example of a lack of will by George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Rumsfeld to put the number of troops into Iraq necessary initially to prevent an insurgency. The first responsibility of an invading force is to provide security for the local population. We didn't do that. The rule of thumb is 20 troops per 1000 population. Iraq's population is 20-25 million, indicating the need for 400,000-500,000 troops. We didn't provide them. That's why we're not winning the peace. That is the fault of the President.

The American people don't lack 'will.' We also don't lack politicians who go around blaming the people for their own failings.
