"Who are you going to believe...the NIE intelligence or the President's?"
-Sixteen intel agencies are in collusion to embarrass and undermine the President.
-The report was not fact, but agenda, driven.
Alan Dershowtiz called it "Stupid Intelligence," which would seem to be the present condition of the American voter.
In a Rasmussen Poll, only 18% of voters are buying the report's conclusion with 66% believing Iran is still building WMD. You say that they must have only polled Fox News viewers? Think again while I splash cold water on the idea that a Democratic administration is a Jan 20, 2009 slam dunk.
Hey, poll-ees! Were you on some sort of narcotic bender right before the poll? Do the words "Iraq" and "4,000 dead American soldiers" bring anything to mind? The slow down in troop deaths getting to you? Six years in a bloody quagmire not enough? Or is it that you're pushing the "only thing we learn from history is that we don't learn from history" envelope?
With these numbers, I don't blame the President for continuing to spin the report like a drunken dreidel (my wife didn't think I could connect this story with the never-ending Chanukah holiday). Why not? What hasn't worked for the country, seems to have worked just swell for this president and his policy failure beneficiaries.
Maybe it's that the entire idea of rapprochement through diplomacy isn't dangerous enough for a country born out bullets, blood and John Wayne movies.
America: Open up your cerebellum! You're being sold another silo of bull-sh*t and you can't even smell the difference between intelligence and fear and hate-charged fabrications created to boonswaggle Americans into voting against their own best interests...AGAIN!
You re-elected Bush/Cheney after tax cuts that gave you a few extra dollars while the top .5% of "earners" (to use the term loooooosely) were averaging over $50,000 in their tax cut stockings. You already allowed these bastards to send the "they'll follow us here" message to ramp up one war. Now you want to give them a pass as they grease the pads for one more before they step into oil-soaked retirement.
Activist judges, gay marriage and Christmas-warring - oh my - sweeping the country if you dare bring in a Democratic presidency. Global warming, dollar weakening due to thunderous debt, record-breasking incompetence in government, erosion of civil liberties and protections, and you still believe these guys?!
It isn't that we shouldn't be concerned by whackjobs around the world. What is troubling is that we choose to believe a bunch of right wing whackjobs right here in America. It leaves one thinking that we may be just blind, deaf and dumb enough to elect the new warmonger next time. And if we are to believe the Rasmussen numbers, my guess is that is just who we'll find ourselves with sometime a little more than thirteen months from now.
Intel wrong. Neocon whackjobs who have gotten it wrong from day one, right.
