With the GOP in jeopardy, former Bush speechwriter turns to hate and more lies
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 08:50 PM by ProSense
From Talking Points---what Josh Marshall refers to as a literary Columbine:

Friends, neighbors, and countrymen of the Left: I hate your lying guts

October 28, 2006 12:50 am

WHEN I WAS speechwrit- ing at the White House, one rule was enforced without exception. The president would not be given drafts that lowered him or The Office by responding to the articulations of hatred that drove so many of his critics.

This rule was especially relevant to remarks that concerned the central topic of our times, Iraq. Having left the White House more than a year ago, I conclude that the immunizing effect of that rule must have expired, because I now find that I am infected with a hatred for the very quarter that inspired the rule--the deranged, lying left.

I never used to feel hatred for people such as Cindy Sheehan, Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, or other pop-culture notables who, for example, sing the praises of Central American dictators while calling President Bush the greatest terrorist on earth. I do now.

Snip...

I used to laugh these people off. Now I detest them as among the most loathsome people America has ever vomited up.

Snip...

I now hate Howard Dean, the elected leader of the Democrats, who, by repeatedly stating his conviction that we won't win in Iraq, bets his party's future on our nation's defeat.

I hate the Democrats who, in support of this strategy, spout lie after lie: that the president knew in advance there were no WMD in Iraq; that he lied to Congress to gain its support for military action; that he pushed for the democratization of Iraq only after the failure to find WMD; that he was a unilateralist and that the coalition was a fraud; that he shunned diplomacy in favor of war.

These lies, contradicted by reports, commissions, speeches, and public records, are too preposterous to mock, but too pervasive to rebut, especially when ignored by abetting media.

more...


"Too pervasive to rebut"?

That means his claim of supporting evidence is a lie!

What an idiot!

4. I smell blood.
On November 8th, when I awaken hungover yet still giddy, I shall break tradition and listen to Rush Limbaugh.

I'm really looking forward to it.

5. The slam on Howard Dean is unconscionable.
The tone overall is as bad or worse.

For shame, you Republicans. For shame.

The polls indicate that by significant numbers, voters believe Bush and the Republican-led Congress are to blame.

I believe those same voters are about to replace the Republicans with Democrats. If Bush and the Republicans won't accept responsibility for their considerable failures, the voters will have to do a little House cleaning.

9. Does he have a point? I really, honestly don't know what he is trying to say
Is he an unemployed Bush hack looking for a right wing think tank to give him a job?

Sounds like someone is desperately searching for relevance after being fired by the White House.

10. Knowing defeat has made this person crazy
What we have seen here is the rantings of a very scared person on the verge of mental breakdown.

11. So, what's his point?
Either what we believe is true, that Iraq was a calculated lie-fest for the benefit of corporate America, or every step of the Iraq debacle has been bungled by a group of complete and total incompetents and then was summarily glossed over with a pack of ill-conceived lies. Does it matter which one? Either way, our hands were tied to effect any real change in policy. You can lay THIS one at the feet of your own g****m party, pal.

12. Well maybe bush will declare martial law and all lefties to be
deemed "enemy combatants" and over half the population of the United States of America rounded up and slaughtered.

That would make him happy, right? The massive slaughter of 50% or more of all American citizens. That's something for him to live in hope for.

Sick stupid motherfucker.
