Danielle Pletka is telling lies on CNN.
Who is she anyway? She is claiming that the whole motive of the group of ambassadors and military leaders working against Bush is solely political since they support Kerry. She supports Bush so nothing that she says should be taken seriously right?

She is horrible, the guy on our side isn't all that effective since he allows her to interrupt.

4. TURN OFF CNN
You'll feel better.

Turn off MSRNC...you'll feel better.

CNN used to be a news channel.

Now they are a network with a vendetta to out-Fox Faux news. Pathetic.

6. Means She Has Nothing
No substative argument. Ad hominem. I wish that interviewers would push this point more. It's a favority right-wing game.

8. Yeah, the Bushies had ample warning this was coming,
they had time to get their talking points coordinated.

10. The Democrats always allow the Republicans to interrupt them.
Have you ever seen the freakish Allen Colmes in action? He discredits every position he takes. I suspect that he is a right-wing plant, a whipping boy that they can use to obliterate non-neocon thinking.

14. Oddly, the guy she was arguing with is a strong Republican!
He just considers * a threat to our national security. As such, he and the other members of this bipartisan group are advocating voting for the * alternative: Kerry. It's fundamentally an ABB group of Repub and Dem former military leaders and ambassadors.

The heat is really on for bushco! Maybe that's the meaning of his "it's so hot out here" statements yesterday!
:nuke:

11. She's a neocon. That's what they do for a living -- lie.
I think she works for the American Enterprise Institute. If not that, one of the others.

12. American Enterprise Institute, a RW think tank.
Well, Wolfie is allowing her to spread RW pro-Bush propaganda and he isn't challenging her like he should with the facts. He should be asking the other guy penetrating questions to enable him to rebutt what she is saying. She is still trying to make the Al Queda and Saddam Hussein connection, saying that Al Queda are bad guys who attacked us, so therefore we have to take out bad guys like Saddam before they attack us. What logic. :puke:

13. I think she sounded pathetically shrill and desperate.
She even tried to pin 9/11 on Iraq again. This on the very same day that CNN, MSRNC, C-SPAN and probably FAUX (never go there) are announcing every few minutes that the 9/11 Commission explicitly stated there is no connection between the two. The neocons are self-destructing before our very eyes. But they are so arrogant they can't back down from their spin for a single minute. They'll be out this November, baring they institute a rightwing military coup as a last ditch attempt to hang on to power. Not even that will work though. I still believe there are enough patriotic Dems AND Repubs in our government and military to finally put an end to this madness. The neocon house of cards will come tumbling down. Next stop, the Hague. :mad:

15. Give these devils credit
They have a huge corral of liars just waiting to respond to any common sense that slips into the media. So Wolfie can't just do a story on the opposition to Bush. He has to tive time to their tripe.

Gotta give the Bushies credit for that. They always have a rapid response. Why don't we have the same thing??????
