I love the desperation of the socialists :lol:


Speaking with President Bush

Yesterday, I (bottom right corner in the picture) was chosen to be among a small group of soldiers assigned to the 42ID's Task Force Liberty that would speak to President Bush, our Commander-in-Chief. The interview went well, but I would like to respond to what most of the mass-media has dubbed as, "A Staged Event."
First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share with the President.
We were given an idea as to what topics he may discuss with us, but it's the President of the United States; He will choose which way his conversation with us may go.
We practiced passing the microphone around to one another, so we wouldn't choke someone on live TV. We had an idea as to who we thought should answer what types of questions, unless President Bush called on one of us specifically.
President Bush told us, during his closing, that the American people were behind us. I know that we are fighting here, not only to preserve our own freedoms, but to establish those same freedoms for the people of Iraq. It makes my stomach ache to think that we are helping to preserve free speech in the US, while the media uses that freedom to try to RIP DOWN the President and our morale, as US Soldiers. They seem to be enjoying the fact that they are tearing the country apart. Worthless!
The question I was most asked while I was home on leave in June was, "So...What's REALLY going on over there?" Does that not tell you something?! Who has confidence in the media to tell the WHOLE STORY? It's like they WANT this to turn into another Vietnam. I hate to break it to them, but it's not.
If you would like to see our interview with President Bush, you may get it HERE.

And I so enjoy seeing you backed into a corner so you have to insult someone rather than having a fact.

The best thing about this is that all the news media showed it to the American people over and over. Everyone in the US and around the world with a TV got to see the manipulation of public opinion by the Bush Bunch! They were able to see the "high regard" that Bush holds American troops in as he used them for a prop to support his political aims. :)

You have the right to be pompous, and you have proven you are exercising such a right.

That is all I need to say

And the best you can come up with is repeating the same drivel.

It's a funny thing about truth, mp. Not that you would understand, but the truth doesn't change. I repeat the same old "drivel" about Bush lying about Saddam buying uranium from Niger, etc., because it's the truth.

On the other hand, the Bush Bunch has said: 1. we're invading Iraq because they have WMDs; no, 2. we're rescuing the Iraqi people; no, 3. it's the frontline in a war on terror. Every one of those excuses has been shown to be a lie; so they changed to the next reason. But Georgie has a hard time with change. So, in spite of his advisors' and Rumsfeld's suggestion that they call it something else, he's sticking with #3 as a description of this war. But polls show that Americans aren't buying any more. Republicans up for re-election next year are starting to worry. His conservative buddies are angry and Carl Rove is out of the loop. If he knows what's going on it must be a scary world for George W. Bush these days. I wonder, though, if he even knows that he looked like a fool with that contrived teleconference with the troops last week?

ROTFLMAO! Right. You've been so sharp on this board. I quiver with fear every time I sign on because you've surely got something that will prove Bush was right to invade Iraq.

I've been called lots of names and I'm still here and I'm still right. But don't you realize that nicknames are a sign of high regard among the Bush Bunch? You don't like the handle? Ask nicely and I'll stop using it. Again, I'm honored that I'll be on your mind in your most personal moments. :D

Come back soon and try to bring something that doesn't insult the veterans of this country.

passin thru - thanks for putting the url up for Sgt. Long's blog. I checked it this morning and loved it.
disagreeable: Come back soon and try to bring something that doesn't insult the veterans of this country.
This is for you dis. Sgt. Long posted this today and there is nothing in here that would insult any veteran, although it will certainly play havoc with how you would like to portray our involvement in Iraq.

Thoughts from the Ground

Over the past couple of days I have received over 300 emails, about 290 of them positive and supportive, pertaining to my “Speaking with President Bush,” blog posting. I want you to know that I’ve read each and every one of them.

Due to the huge number of soldiers that are on the FOB at this time, the MWR (Morale Welfare and Recreation) computers are hard to some by. When you do have the chance to use one, it seems like it’s slow as Christmas due to the load on the bandwidth (but it’s still better than nothing at all). We’re continuing our orientation with the replacement unit along with our joint operations with the Iraqi Army. For these reasons, I cannot answer each and every email but I do want you to know that I’ve saved them and will be printing and scrap-booking them all.

By now, you should know that the Iraqi voting went very well, as the people of Iraq voted on their proposed constitution. Voter turn-out was high in our Area of Operations as I believe the Iraqi security forces and local governments were successful not only with distributing copies of the constitution but also with securing polling sites and making the citizens of Iraq feel safe. I don’t have “hard” numbers to post, but the Commander of the Iraqi Army battalion here told me that, “…at least 70 percent of the people voted.” It was cool to see the soldiers come back from voting day operations with their index fingers inked purple, from voting themselves. Again, the 278th RCT has humbly played a very small part in the history of the world.

In January of 2005, as medical support for the elections, I was able to snap some photos of locals lining up to load buses that would take them to polling sites. This is one of those pictures. We could actually see with our own eyes, the fruits of our hard work and efforts as the people of Iraq made their way to vote (freely) for the first time. During this past referendum, we took a much more supportive role as the Iraqi security forces paved the way for their own people to safely vote.

Again, it is my belief that the success of our joint missions with the Iraqi Army does not depend on the passing of this referendum (as some MSM may think). Even if it does not pass, the people of Iraq have spoken and they have exercised their FREE right to vote!
I’ve hesitated to really post my opinions about why we’re here and what we’re doing, but I feel like I’ve been forced to do so. For the life of me I can’t understand how people cannot see that our presence here alone is deterring terrorism all over the world. How can you not see it?? Maybe it’s because you’re not here. That must be it: You’re at home or at work, taking your freedoms for granted and all the while being spoon-fed your information by the MSM. I’m not saying that everyone could or should serve in the military, but some just seem to be so anti-military and anti-President Bush that it’s like you WANT us to fail here. Sorry, but we’re not. How could Iraq’s success NOT positively affect the rest of the Middle East?? Would not the people in Iraq’s bordering countries see that freedom is SWEET and that it’s nice to have a VOTE in regards to your OWN FUTURE and the FUTURE of your children??

Working with the Iraqi Army has been one of the many, life-changing experiences for me during this deployment. I’ve been exposed to a much misunderstood culture and people. I’ve made some good friends and I hope that the IA soldiers have learned as much from me as I have of them. I still haven’t gotten used to drinking HOT tea instead of ICED tea, especially during the 130 degree days. Man, that iced tea will taste GREAT!

Soon (God willing) I’ll be back at home with my wife and daughters and I hope we’ll be enjoying the holidays with the rest of the family. I’ve never thought that I had taken advantage of the freedoms that we enjoy, but I now have so much more to be thankful for. As a Combat Medic, I’ve seen the good and the bad in Iraq. I’ve been out on Medical Civil Assistance Programs within local villages, treating men, women and children for various injuries and illnesses. I’ve also seen and treated those same people, along with Coalition and Iraqi Security Forces for injuries sustained by hostile action. Many things I may want to remember, some I may not, but ALL have changed me in some way.

Sgt Long has every right to his opinion. But it doesn't change the fact that this event was rehearsed and staged. Everyone saw it. It's no wonder Bush's poll numbers are falling, falling, falling. It's no wonder more and more people no longer consider him "honest."

Now Here I find ole dis thinks I debate her, there is no way no how I will delve into a futile exercise with this stupid and pompous person. I quit long ago when I offered proof with numerous websites to prove my point. She comes on and says she will not click on them. then she has to call me names because her agrument was so strong.

You see ole dis is nothing more than entertainment, that is why I ignore her and do not talk directly to her. Seems she thinks I am talking to her, she's so vain.

Oh and she thinks I will ask her to quit calling me names, no way it is a badge of honor and then when I do the passin thing I will always think of her.
