George Voinovich (R) : the administration “f—ed up” the war
Cnn
7/16/07

<snip>

Voinovich added that other Republicans are close to speaking out against the President’s current strategy.

“I won’t mention anyone’s name. But I have every reason to believe that the fur is going to start to fly, perhaps sooner than what they may have wanted.”

In private, Voinovich is more blunt, using a profanity to describe the White House’s handling of Iraq by charging the administration “f—ed up” the war.

Voinovich stressed he expressed his views to Rove as a positive “opportunity” for the president to come together with Democrats and Republicans on an exit strategy that will be good for the country.

3. Close to speaking out?
Ooh, I'll bet that scares Bush, Cheney and Rove.

Put up or shut up, Voinovich.

4. By supporting a guy who is stupid and showing all the signs of being a Barfly
What did the Republicans expect??

Is this a way to run a Nation...by using a dude who pretends to be folksy and macho??

The Pubs got what they supported...now they can eat it

6. How could you possibly argue with that?
In the face of what's going on. Donald Rumsfeld is a historical figure of such gross incompetency and dishonesty, as to change this country's fucking destiny.

10. No they fucked up the inspections, or we wouldn't have had a war.
And that fuck up was by design.

12. Here's what's wrong with this: their objection is NOT that the war itself is immoral and wrong
and a preemptive strike against a country that was not a threat to us, or that we have violated the geneva convention, suspended our habeas corpus, etc.

no, no, they are not upset at that.

They are upset that it wasn't run efficiently.

13. Gives a whole new meaning to "make love, not war" ain't it?
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 12:16 PM by The Count
Sort of reminds me of Joementum on Faux in 2004 complaining about some Dem candidates who "give this war a bad name". But hey, at least he came back to the reality based comunity - welcome Senator!
