5 more troop deaths; 100 in December; you take your time deciding, you prick.
BAGHDAD, Dec. 28 -- The U.S. military death toll in Iraq this month continued to rise as officials reported Thursday that five more American service members had died.

The latest deaths brought to 100 the number of service members killed in December, according to iCasualties.org, an independent Web site that tracks military fatalities.

President Bush and members of his National Security team leave a non-decisional meeting about U.S. military involvement in Iraq on the president's Central Texas ranch in Crawford, Texas, December 28, 2006.

2. Big frigging "WORKING HOLIDAY" Skittles!
Every damn news broadcast has been pushing this working crap. I think they're all down there cooking up something more sinister, personally.

11. No way!
It says "nearly" three hours.

Translation: He farted when it was brought up and started talking about shiny things.

13. He, much like the people who voted for him, has the attention span of a gnat.

They do look worried, though.

Maybe they're running out of people to sacrifice.

Who's next?

Condi?

Cheney?

4. Jesus - we're 9 away from the 3000 mark...
I was hoping against hope that the 3000 milestone wouldn't be met by the New Year, but it now appears likely. Goddamn it! :grr:

7. Oh, but no worries!

We'll have a hanging to celebrate, remember?

The death of #3000 will go virtually unnoticed by the msm, just like the funerals of the other 2999 will have gone unnoticed by bush.

5. I can`t for the life of me understand
why media starlets aren`t covering Bush`s indecision as a major news story. It`s like Americans are trapped in a burning building but the fire chief goes on a bike ride before changing into his fire fighting gear. Why does Bush need more time? The horrific problem he created in Iraq isn`t something new that just cropped up.

16. I think he will just add more troops. I think Bush thinks he is an
autocrat. I think being President this long has even self fed this thinking. I am also sure that the stock market did not want any to-do to get in the way of all the buying we all do for Xmas. Like living in a madhouse I would say.

17. What's with this "Casual" look?
Suit jackets with no ties????????

What did the Secret Service make them remove their ties just in case there was a accident involving ties and the chandelier?

And Condi...........she looks like she's going bowling or something.

21. It's funny you should say that.
Well, not funny, but coincidental. You know what I mean.

I was just talking to someone about how so many of the "candid" photos from this administration show the tops of their heads. I think their body language and facial expressions speak almost as loud as their criminal and inhumane actions.

23. Wasn't there a projection showing that we wouldn't hit 3000 until next year?
It just keeps getting worse and worse and they all walk around like idiots.

They only care about themselves. They don't care one bit about the troops. Not one bit.
