    Micheal Steele rewrites very recent history

    YouTube - Michael Steele Opposing the Troops in Afghanistan

    (audio is tough but here's a transcript)

    The McChrystal incident, to me, was very comical. And I think it's a reflection of the frustration that a lot of our military leaders have with this Administration and their prosecution of the war in Afghanistan. Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama's choosing. This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in.

    It was one of those, one of those areas of the total board of foreign policy ["in the Middle East"? -- Note: The audio is not quite clear in this section.] that we would be in the background, sort of shaping the changes that were necessary in Afghanistan as opposed to directly engaging troops, but it was the president who was trying to be cute by half by flipping a script demonizing Iraq, while saying the battle really should be in Afghanistan. Well, if he's such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that's the one thing you don't do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan? All right, because everyone who has tried, over a thousand years of history, has failed. And there are reasons for that. There are other ways to engage in Afghanistan.

    Just normal American right wing policy to rewrite history in their own image

    Tell a lie often enough, someone will believe it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Looks like Steele is trying to get himself fired. That tactic would work back in the days before the internet. Now it's just bloody stupid. Steele is not that stupid. Maybe he's trying to lose his job?

    This thread's entertainment value will skyrocket just as soon as the conservative apologists show up.

    Too bad they won't.

    It's so much easier to spank the other guy than it is to admit when your guy screwed up.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Steele's an idiot and needs to go.

    Michael Steele is quite possibly the biggest pinhead in the Republican party.





    Oh, and this?

    Well, if he's such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that's the one thing you don't do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan?

    Re: Micheal Steele rewrites very recent history

    i recall the hubris from the reich wing when Obama took time to evaluate and qualify the mccrystal strategy to ramp up the number of troops deployed to afghanistan
    they were livid at the time that Obama did not immediately implement mccrystal's expansion proposal
    now, we have a classic catch 22
    if we withdraw our troops, then Obama is painted by the reich wing as a president unwilling to defend the citizens of the USA from terrorist aggression
    if we continue dubya bin lyin's war in the middle east, then they try to re-write history to make the loss of our youth and treasure due to Obama rather than it being one of the many messes he inherited from a dysfunctional republican regime
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
