(Another) Cuckoo Bird Letter of the Day

I’ll have to admit, after reading this letter, I came to realize there are still whack-jobs out there that support GW Bush, our WORST president in the history of our country, unfckbelivable!

Congratulations to the Argus Leader, The Associated Press and other national media outlets on the historic victory of your candidate, Barack Obama. All of you must be proud, as it was one of your finest campaigns in our country’s history.

Yes, the media was bias towards Obama, I will agree with you on that. But I disagree on the reason why. Obama ran a positive campaign, so when the media did a story on Obama, it was a positive story. When they did a story on McCain it was a negative story, because he was negative. The campaigns controlled the message they wanted the media to cover, not the other way around, McFly.

For eight years, you have eloquently articulated the problems of our country and how each problem decidedly was caused by the Bush administration. Who can forget your negative war coverage and how you rallied many citizens against Bush and his evil oil-related policies.

Actually, brain surgeon, the MSM DID NOT do their job on the run up to the war, because if they would have, we would have seen the Bush administration was lying through their teeth. They went along with it, just like the lazy ass Congress did. This was an enormous failure by our media, and they have yet to apologize or make it right. The fourth estate has let us down.

Perhaps less noticeable, but equally effective, was your silence regarding our country’s current success in Iraq. Managing to bury Obama’s failure to support the surge and its resounding success perhaps was your finest hour.

Success?! First off, we shouldn’t have been there to begin with. Secondly, we would not have had to use the surge if we could have maintained security to begin with, and thirdly, the surge has only partially worked. It’s objective to end the violence has been successful, but the diplomatic part has been a complete failure. The Iraqi government is still in disarray. Why? Because we keep holding their hand. It’s time to push the baby bird democracy out of the tree and let them fly on their own.

My personal favorite was how quickly you and others set out to destroy Sarah Palin when her unfiltered convention address helped McCain surge ahead in the polls.

I’ll say this for the 900th time, She is dumber then jellied moose nose. She destroyed herself when she opened her mouth.

The surge has worked, not because of military strength, but due to the fact that we pay insurgents monthly to be nice to each other.

with pallets of money.

The MSM had every reason to let the war start without question – it’s good for business.

I know – how sad. Yet now you never hear a damn thing about it now.

#5 Ghost of Dude on 11.11.08 at 10:03 am

Things aren’t exploding every day. It’s old news now. Never mind that we’re actually making progress on a local level in nearly every province.

That’s not true, we just don’t hear about it, the economy has taken presidence. Listen to AirAmerica, Rachel Maddow has a daily spot she calls “Life During Wartime”. Daily she tells of
bombings and killings.

#7 Ghost of Dude on 11.11.08 at 12:02 pm

Listen to people who have recently been there. They’ll give it to you straight – the good and the bad… and the ugly.
The fact that there are bombings and killings does not mean we’re not succeeding any more than the fact that people still die in car accidents means we haven’t made significant advances in vehicle safety in the last 50 years.
Besides, more people have termites than listen to Air America.

I’ll agree we have made ‘progress’ but I wouldn’t use the word ‘success’. Success would have been removing Saddam w/o killing over 200,000 iraqis, diplacing over 1 million, dismembering and killing our American Soldiers, flushing almost a Trillion dollars down the toilet and destroying our standing in the world. Success can only be measured by being diplomatic. Not only do I hope President Obama gets us out of Iraq in 16 months, I hope the residual troops left behind are so few, they can share a trailer house.

Like Air America or not, “Life During Wartime” offers daily coverage of news from Iraq and Afghanistan. These continue to open every show even while the occupation has been pushed off the front pages. The reports function to spotlight the daily carnage and ever mounting military and civilian body count, something we as Americans should continue to know and ponder.

#10 Ghost of Dude on 11.11.08 at 3:32 pm

I didn’t say the war was a good idea in the first place, but at least we’re getting the mess we made cleaned up. We owe it to the Iraqis to leave them with an intact and at least semi-stabel government.

They stopped using Mr. Mop and started using Swiffer over there I guess.

#12 Ghost of Dude on 11.12.08 at 7:39 am

They actually stopped putting so much effort into their own security and moved out into the cities where people could see they weren’t such bad guys after all. It was pretty brutal for a couple of months, but the results started piling up. People were tired of AQ threatening them, forcing them to put burquas on mannequins, forcing the private parts of sheep to be covered, not allowing tomatos and cucumbers to be carried in the same basket, etc. They wanted to get on with their lives and didn’t want to put up with the BS AQ and other extremists were forcing on them.

I keep my cucumber with my tomatos.
