I read this from the Germans this morning. The bloom is definately off the rose.

I have to agree with that analysis. It's as if he didn't even agree with his own speech.

And here's how the libs really view the location of the speech:

Chris Matthews refers to it as the enemy camp. Nice.

Power Line - Obama Ventures Into the Enemy Camp
Don't get me started on that &%$#$%^&#$%^&N Chris Matthews. His general bad manners alone earn him a punch in the teeth. When did journalism start equating with manners that a hillybilly wouldn't tolerate? Matthews is lucky that conservatives aren't as evil and warlike as he thinks or he would have been strangled years ago just for his stinking rotten manners.

But that really shows the elitist liberal attitude. The US Army is something they see as more of an enemy than someone like Castro. No, Castro is a hero! Viva Che'! Rotten filthy narcissistic murderers, those 2. And the elitist libs with their smarmy arrogance can't help but regard the troops as stupid. As if people who can only spew time worn Marxist claptrap have two brain cells between them. Ha! I'd put the average educational level of military people against media people any day of the week.

"I support the President."

Which one, Pelosi or Obama?

Imagine if Roosevelt said, "I will send anther 100,000 troops to Europe, but I will bring all troops home in 18 months."

Victory takes as long as it takes. Setting a pull-out date tells the enemy "just hang in there a bit longer, and your opponent will abandon their cause".

Well the frame on my $3,000.00 wheelchair just snapped about five minutes ago, and I'm stuck here at my desk until my wife gets home.

I would love to get wired up with bout 300 lbs. of C4 and wheel myself into a session of congress. That's the enemy camp boys.

Chris Matthews is a punk. Would enjoy punching his big fat face flat.

What a lousy decade. GM tanked, etc.etc.etc...and all the pundits say "it's our own fault..."

And that damned Go Devil is still all over the garage floor. Oh well, could be worse I guess...

Hi Guys,

OK, I'm a Libertarian, neither Repub nor Demo. But you guys hit a nerve. Every time I am forced for some reason to endure more than about 20 seconds of Chris Matthews, I want to regurgitate whatever I had for lunch. God, but that man loves the sound of his own voice. He'll talk right over anyone, and be absolutely certain in his own omnipotent mind that he is the repository of all knowledge in the political Universe.

Just ask him.

I can handle Rachel Maddow. Don't always agree or disagree, but she is at least fairly polite. Her guests get to talk once in awhile.

Mainly I find it best to keep the tube turned off, and leave the stupid ranting to those who wallow in it so well......I'd rather be cold out in the shed, working on the XS or BMW---they, at least, serve a useful purpose in the Universe.

Chris Matthews........(channeling Ron White)........"and I hate his g-u-u-u-u-uts".

(Matt: Sorry to hear about that chair--is it Lucas? Amal? Either way, it sucks that it broke, and not even on a track!)

Word count:

I – 45

Afghanistan – 39

Victory – 0.

You know it takes months to put 30,000 troops across the ocean, right? You don't just buy them all a plane ticket to Kabul.

Quote:
Now they're happy that he's sending 30,000 more troops, but unhappy that he's also set a date for the pullout.
That's like saying, "I'm happy my mechanic fixed my brakes, but unhappy he put a hole in my brake line." Crazy, huh?

Quote:
Or that he's not bringing all the troops home now.
Republicans are calling for a troop pullout? News to me.

Quote:
Go ahead and criticize him. It makes no never mind to me.
Nor does logic and reality, apparently.

That's part of what shocked me about this campaign. It doesn't cost a dime and takes about 15 seconds. Dems or Repub, whatever you are, I'm fine with you if you're a patriot. It's this apathetic shrug-off mentality that really eats me up.
