Lickspittle Kristol: Why Bush Will Be A Winner
I suppose I'll merely expose myself to harmless ridicule if I make the following assertion: George W. Bush's presidency will probably be a successful one.

Let's step back from the unnecessary mistakes and the self-inflicted wounds that have characterized the Bush administration. Let's look at the broad forest rather than the often unlovely trees. What do we see? First, no second terrorist attack on U.S. soil -- not something we could have taken for granted. Second, a strong economy -- also something that wasn't inevitable.

...ending with the insane...

And what happens when voters realize in November 2008 that, if they choose a Democrat for president, they'll also get a Democratic Congress and therefore liberal Supreme Court justices? Many Americans will recoil from the prospect of being governed by an unchecked triumvirate of Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. So the chances of a Republican winning the presidency in 2008 aren't bad.

What it comes down to is this: If Petraeus succeeds in Iraq, and a Republican wins in 2008, Bush will be viewed as a successful president.

I like the odds.

1. This is pattern thinking for wingnuts. They always predict a rosy future for themselves.
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 06:59 AM by Perry Logan
And I mean always. It doesn't matter what the real prospects are. Neocons think they can predict the future--and it's always a glorious one for them. So Kristol had to say that. He's just obeying his "winger programming."

You can use this technique very effectively against wingers, by the way, if you're into psyching people. Just go around cheerfully declaring inevitable and ineluctable Democratic victory. Act like you don't have a brain in your head. This mimics wingnut behavior, which drives them nuts.

OK, more nuts.

2. All discussed and chewed over many times here yesterday
Conclusion: Bill is on Kristol Meth. A very dangerous drug that gives you hallucinations about how great Bush is doing.

Just say no, kids.

3. When Kristol comes down off the drugs, tell him bu$h is a looser 4 times over
The only thing bu$h could win is the biggest looser contest. He has fucked up everything his hands have touched.

5. Kristol still dreaming of flowers and candy.
It's time we seriously considered forcing Bill to get help. His delusions are becoming completely detached from reality.

6. Where's that list of 50 or so blunders that Kristol has made since 2002?
This will be another one to add to the list
