Just it!!

Democrats defeat “war in Iraq”2,120,000 hits

Democrats victory “war in Iraq” – 1,770,000 hits

That contrasts with….

Bush victory “war in Iraq” 2,370,000 hits

Bush defeat “war in Iraq” – 1,740,000 hits

Now who is undermining the war effort with their enemy-enabling rhetoric?

The Lies Of A Gay Cowboy

So Dan and I have had repeated conversations over the past year expressing our wonderment and the anti-GayPatriot commenters who, while loathing and despising every punctutation mark written here, nonetheless seem to troll on the site and attack at a moment’s notice of a new posting or friendly commenter.

One of the most amusing and angry of our commenters is “GayCowboyBob” who seems to gain his oxygen from doing nothing but badmouthing the hosts of this blog and everyone else in the world that thinks the sky is blue. His attacks of late have been more frequent and more “loud” than ever. Which makes his own words, on his own blog even more interesting…. especially since the last posting was September 20th.

Here’s the entire text from the existing posting on The Gay GOP Roundup – 9/20/05:

Gay Patriot – Big, Fat Partisan Blowhards

So as you can see I haven’t been blogging much of late. Traveling, busy schedule etc. have all been getting in the way.

But for the time being, until I decide to start posting more regularly, I need to post one more entry.

It is that the site GayPatriot has become so over-the-top partisan that I feel any further dialogue on my part simply wastes my time.

(GP Editorial Comment – Really? Well that was over two months ago…and yet here you still are. I guess you must be a liberal, because you can’t keep your own promises…. in your own words.)

Dan and Bruce, the main correspondents, simply post now for exposure. They select issues designed to affect maximum controversy allowing them to spin conservative rhetoric. There is no effort to critically assess current issues. There is no effort to critically assess Republican actions in government. It has simply become a sounding board for the far right perspective with little or no insight or thoughtfulness rather being an outlet for hyperbolic rhetoric.

(GP – Is there a mirror in the house?)

Therefore, I have again withdrawn myself from their debate.

(GP – And unfortunately, all of us here know that is a lie.)

The perspectives of less-than-party advocates simply drives the controversy, furthering their end of more exposure for the site a la Coulter, Malkin, Fox News. Dan and Bruce are now drawn, accidentally or deliberately, into the ratings game. They’ve gotten a little taste of the power of celebrity and feel the bloodlust. Look for them to write a book along the lines of “Dumb Liberals, Smart Conservatives” soon.

(GP – No need, the words of a Lying Cowboy prove that.)

I hope that others will also see them for their Righter-than-Right perspective and stop pandering to their baiting. The majority Centrists of the country do themselves a disservice and an injustice by giving people of Dan and Bruce’s ilk fuel to their fire.

We have given far right AND far left factions much too much power in espousing their beliefs. They have overtaken and corrupted the national debate and are the powers that cause, not resolve, the majority of problems. We do ourselves a disservice by pandering to this radical angst. It’s all too easy to be sucked into the controversy and therefore we must try even harder to eschew radical elements and promote centrist.

(GP – If someone can email me ONE “centrist” position that the Lying Cowboy has put forth… please do. He’s really into the full revisionist history spin at this point in the post, huh?)

I hope any of you reading this will join me in taking sites like GayPatriot, Coulter, Malkin, Noonan, off your usual reading.

(GP – Well, we know again that he is a true liberal. “Do as I say, not as I do.”)

Without exposure, they have no power. They will try to keep that exposure by becoming even more vitriolic and radical but it’s up to the regular guy to stop it. It’s time the real silent majority of the United States, you and your neighbors, say to all these talking head “no, we do accept you skewing the debate. You ARE the radical faction and you do not represent me.”

***********************

Regular guy, eh Cowboy? Well, exactly who are you? Dan and I have fully disclosed who we are. So now it is the Lying Cowboy’s turn.

If anyone is to truly believe anything he says anymore (either in his comments here or on his own apparently-defunct blog), don’t we deserve to know who he is and what his agenda is? After all, he likes to dominate this blog so much, he must be well-educated in all of the important issues of the day.

Tick, tick, tick, tick….

Bad Week For Bush Haters

The Special Prosecutor’s entire investigation into who allegedly leaked Valerie Plame’s allegedly covert status has “sand thrown in its eyes” by one of the liberal media’s darlings. (Woodward Was Told Of Plame More Than Two Years Ago – WaPo.)

The 9/11 Commission is shown to be the fraud that it always was.

Maybe next week, some Democrats will actually put forward a plan to win the global war on terror? But don’t hold your breath.

After all it is has been 1,528 days since our nation was attacked by al-Qaeda (for the umpteenth time since 1992) on September 11th.

Before Iraq War, Bush Critic Feared Osama Might “Boogie to Baghdad”

Posted by GayPatriotWest at 4:50 pm - November 17, 2005.
Filed under: Bush-hatred,Liberals,War On Terror

Since Byron York regrets that so few in the media have picked up on a catchy expression by one of the many people who mispresents his own statments in order to criticize President Bush and so gain media attention, I decided to post on that very expression.

You see, when Richard Clarke, the top White House counterterrorism official in the Clinton Administration, began to understand the level of Bush-hatred in the media, he wrote a book critical of the current Administration’s attitude toward the terrorist threat. He chnaged some of his past opinions and mispresented his views in order to better attack the president. Given this man’s lambasting of that much-reviled (in media circles) Administration, he got top billing on 60 Minutes and soon became the darling of the MSM and its preferred political party–the Democrats.

All were certain that his revelations would help bring down President Bush. After W’s defeat in the 2004 election, most assumed Clarke would get a top post in the Kerry Administraiton. Fortunately, that did not come to pass.

Will, despite Mr. Clarke’s frequent criticism of President Bush, his words prior to the liberation of Iraq help prove that the president made a strong case for war. Indeed, they help debunk the spurious charge that that good man lied in making that case. Well aware of the relationship between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein, Mr. Clarke “believed that if the United States made bin Laden’s situation too hot in Afghanistan, then, in Clarke’s non-famous words, ‘old wily Osama will likely boogie to Baghdad.’” Please read all of Mr. York’s piece which can be easily confirmed by checking out the 9/11 Commission Report (p. 134).

The more facts come out, the more apparent it becomes that not only did the president not lie, but that he made a very strong case for leading our nation to war against a bloodthirsty tyrant who, while in power, had been busy building relationships with terrorists bent on attacking America.

Thanks to President Bush, that dictator is no longer in power and can’t very well build relationships with terrorists from a prison cell.

Our exit strategy is victory

Like the folks at Powerline, I don’t always agree with the senior Senator from Arizona. But, when John McCain is right, he’s right, particularly on foreign affairs/military policy (where he usually agrees with the president) and on federal spending (where he is frequently at odds with the Administration). In taking issue with those fair-weather Democrats demanding a timetable for our troops withdrawal from Iraq, the good man from the Grand Canyon State has this to say:

Anyone reading the amendment gets the sense that the Senate’s foremost objective is the draw-down of American troops. What it should have said is that America’s first goal in Iraq is not to withdraw troops, but to win the war. All other policy decisions we make should support, and be subordinate to, the successful completion of our mission.

Morality, national security and the honor our fallen deserve all compel us to see our mission in Iraq through to victory. . . .

We have told insurgents that their violence does grind us down, that their horrific acts might be successful. But these are precisely the wrong messages. Our exit strategy in Iraq is not the withdrawal of our troops, it is victory.

Exactly.

Bye bye Big Apple!

Thanks to all the new friends I met yesterday and last night in New York City. I’m thrilled to be one of the Open Source Media Contributing Blogs and yesterday’s event was outstanding. The highlight of the night was meeting fellow OSM colleague and all-around fantastic lady Tammy Bruce. Not only was she friendly and warm, she is hot! Ah, if only I were a lesbian….

Anyway, it is back home for an overdue reunion with PatriotPooch today and PatriotPartner on Saturday.

Oh… if you see this poor thing wandering the streets of Manhattan, please call me….

It was last seen about 11:05 PM somewhere near 51st & 9th.
