The Commander in Chief's Bold Surprise Iraq Visit: Happy Thanksgiving ! Written by J.R.
President Bush stunned his critics, troops and indeed world, when he flew into Baghdad International Airport on Thanksgiving Day. The President, who was visibly emotional, received a standing ovation from troops, who were obviously estatic by surprise visit. What a great morale booster for troops, and indeed, America.
This, my friends, is mark of a true leader ! A man who has compassion about his convictions, a man who when speaking to Troops wherever he goes is truly emotional, because he means what he says and shows it. The President cares about and supports United States military and they love and support him as well.
The liberals can't stand this. The main stream news media is already whining and sniveling that they were lied to (boy what a change, it's usually other way around) and mislead, this will lead to a precedent, etc.,etc., blah,blah,blah.
The troops all across Iraq could not have been happier. The comments of troops showed their admiration for President. "That is absolutely awesome", "I think that shows real personal courage", "This is definitely a good move for morale", " It makes us feel better that our leader is actually here with us on a holiday", " I think this is a great move", " It sends a strong message from commander in chief that we're focused on winning ", "It's a real morale booster", It's a total morale booster", "I didn't get to see him but what matters is that he cares enough to come and visit".
The Capture of Saddam: Great News for Americans and Iraqis, Bad News for the Liberals and the Main Stream News Media ! Written by J.R.
The recent capture of Saddam Hussein by U.S. Military was great news for American and Iraqi people. Across our nation news of his capture was met with hoops, hollers, and smiles. The news was especially good for Iraqi Americans. Cheers went up at New York Jets- Pittsburgh Steelers game on that Sunday, after President Bush's announcement was broadcast over stadium loud speakers. Arab Americans were dancing in streets, celebrating, waving American and Iraqi flags. What a great day for Iraqi people and what a great day for America and U.S. Military!
The Iraqi newspapers reacted with joy and relief to news of Saddam's capturer, one of publications printing Iraq was a "Nation swimming in Sunshine".
The main stream news media in America apparently didn't have same enthusiasm as it's Iraqi counterparts. A Washington Post reporter stated on NBC Meet Press. "The one thing to remember is that, even though we've got Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden is still out there." A New York Times reporter wrote that Hussein's capture was a Bush Vendetta. Today Show host Katie Couric called Saddams capture mostly symbolic. A Boston Globe reporter whined that Saddams capture "changes nothing". A Jordanian newspaper, Al-Rai Daily, even tried to blame a 70 year old woman's death on capture of Saddam Hussein, stating that woman was so overcome with sadness that she died of a heart attack. (Give me a break)
Of course you had mixed message statements of No Clue Nine (democratic nomination candidates) mostly stating that Saddam's capture was a good thing BUT... . You had Rep. Baghdad Jim Mc Dermott who stated that he believes that Bush administration knew all along where Saddam was and waited until now to get him to gain political points. Not to be outdone by a fellow democrat, former secretary of State under Clinton administration, Madeline Aldim, oops I mean Albright, suggested to Roll Call Editor Mort kondracke, that Bush administration may have already caught Osama Bin Laden and was waiting until next October to release information as an 'October Surprise'.
