Is this how stupid the Democrat plan sounds?
To me, yes.
Q Mr. Murtha, you say -- your first point about bringing them home consistent with the safety of U.S. forces. You know about these matters; what is your sense as to how long that would be?
REP. MURTHA: Well, I think they can get them out of there in six months. I think that we could do it -- you know, you have to do it in a very consistent way. But I think six months would be a reasonable time to get them out of there.
Here's another exchange in which John Murtha actually says, "It's time to bring them home."
Q Congressman, Republicans say that Democrats are calling for withdrawal, are advocating a cut-and-run strategy. What do you say to that criticism?
REP. MURTHA: It's time to bring them home. They've done everything they can do. The military's done everything they can do. This war has been so mishandled from the very start. Not only was the intelligence bad, the way they disbanded the troops, there's all kinds of mistakes that have been made. They don't deserve to continue to suffer. They're the targets. They have become the enemy! Eighty percent of the Iraqis want us out of there. The public wants us out of there.

“Chinese people enjoy all forms of democracy and freedom under law, including freedom of religion and belief,” a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry, Liu Jianchao, said.
Yeah as long as it conforms to the idea of religion that has been outlined by the Government. For some reason I'm not buying this Chinese Democracy bit.

Ok so where are all the conspiracy theorists on this one? Did Bush posses some unatural power to direct those tornadoes to the midwest? Was the damage to homes and people caused intentionally here to save some other community elsewhere?

They found that spanking seemed to be associated with more aggressive behavior and increased anxiety in all of the countries. The association was weakest in Kenya, where physical punishment is culturally accepted and common. It was strongest in Thailand, where the culture generally discourages spanking.
So in countries where spanking is accepted, children weren't as aggressive. I take this to mean they were better behaved? Hhmmmm...Interesting.
The CMA's in New York?? Bon Jovi, one of the performers???? Wha?????
Ok it's time to start sending people back to the first grade to teach them the way things are SUPPOSED to be.
Will someone please tell our republican leaders to grow some "backbone", to put it nicely. President Bush is finally answering the Democrats charges of lieing and manipulating pre-war intelligence. Hammer it home! Keep reminding the American voter that the democrats were beating the same drum prior to the war as well as when Clinton targeted Iraq.
There doesn't appear to be a good strong leader coming out of the republican camp. If one doesn't appear soon and the republicans don't start holding the democrats' feet to the fire, the republicans will lose in 06 and 08. The reason the President's numbers are low is I think because we have become dissatisfied with the lack of "backbone" in our republican leadership. So come on Republican leaders, get with the rest of us "radical right wingers."
