Regarding the Last Post

Some people are under the impression that I'm going Democrat, that's not true, let me explain.

I am no longer a "Bush Republican" but I am a real Republican. You don't have to like the manager to like the team.

Not that I hate Bush, but I have been seriously disappointed in him in the last month or so. Hopefully he'll get back on track soon!

I'm just an honest Conservative and I don't always agree with the mainsteam opinion of my fellow Conservatives.

Just making sure everyone knows I'm not going left, ever! If anything I'm going further to the right.

    I'm still a Bush Republican. you can't stop liking a president just because he's done a few things wrong. He's still freed Iraq and I think that's enough for one presidency. How many others did something that grand?

    (Stand by for liberals saying "Bush killed innocents and tourtured terrorists!")

    Hey Robby, you should check out Gayle's blog

    I'm having an interesting conversation about war and peace stuff that you might want to look at. But just so you know it's supposed to be a friendly discussion instead of a big debate just so you know...

    Haha, what's that supposed to mean? (I'm a little nuts yeah.)

    Cody, I must tell you that I'm impressed with your intellect and your level of maturity. At your age, I was nowhere near as informed as you are. Tell your mom I said she must've done one heck of a job!

    Oh, and I second your comments about not being a Bush Republican. Nothing against him, I just like my conservatives with a SPINE!

    no more dictatorship
    new constitution
    elections
    new democracy
    schools
    police force
    military
    houses
    jobs

    I don't know what you would call all of that but I know it's a heck of a lot better than what they had with Saddam.

    I loved Bush, but it didn't take long to see that Bush's being a conservative personally doesn't mean he is a conservative politically. Not a single veto on a spending bill, A wasted opportuity to move the Court to the right, an increase of regulation every year since he took office. I expected a little more... but I learned quickly not to expect too much from government. All the more reason its size should be reduced.

    You forgot to include:

    No real government
    Lack of infrastructure, running water, sporatic electricity
    Devisated economy
    Poorly trained police force
    Daily bombings
    Revenge killings
    Lack of national unity

    Sounds like a wonderful place to live. Freedom indeed.

    Bush didn't free Iraq. The military (not Bush) diposed Saddam. That's about it.

    "No real government"

    yet. It's being worked on. We are still working on a Democracy

    "Lack of infrastructure, running water, sporatic electricity"

    There is plenty of infrastructure, and more being built. The Iraqi's are getting water, that's why they're still alive. The electricity was knocked out by a insurgent, it will be brought back.

    "Devisated economy"

    Read above.

    "Poorly trained police force"

    Read above.

    "Daily bombings
    Revenge killings"

    Yeah it's called a war. Democracy comes when the war is over.

    "Lack of national unity"

    Right... That's why so many sunnis decided to vote right?

    1) Most of what you have is false

    2) We have not completed the war, so obviously there are problems. That's why we're there, to fix them.

    3) You don't even sound like you want us to succeed. Would you rather see Iraq be a failure? That's how it sounds.

    drew said... Lack of infrastructure, running water, sporatic electricity

    And you're getting theis where? Because there is electricity in Iraq. Ignorance is so scary these days. No government? What about that constitution?

    No, I want us to get the hell out of there and bring our troops home where we need them. If the disaster in New Orleans isn't a striking example of how our government has overextended itself to the point where internally we are suffering, then maybe you are due for a reality check. Money wasted on Iraq could be put to much better use here...

    The disaster in New Orleans is a striking example of how socialism doesn't work. Democrat Governor, Democrat Mayor, Democratic state for decades. That's why it failed and no one will ever convince me otherwise, so don't waste your breath trying.

    By the way Cody: Thanks for the pitch! :) Also, would you please go to www.hillaryslime.blogspot.com
    and tell me if you can work the comment section of his last post? I tried three or four times to comment there, but couldn't. Besides that, it's a post on a link that has valuable information on blogging.

    By the way Cody, your doing excellent on my blog. Between you and a few others, I don't even have to say much! Thanks.

    How exactly is Louisana socialist? Last I checked they were part of the union. What does party affiliation have to do with disaster response? What about Brownie? Still think he did a heck of a job? BTW, the response was bad all around, in Mississippi and Alabama as well... where there are Republicans running the show.

    I don't think anyone was ready for that disaster. Just like on 9/11, we weren't ready but it really woke us up to the problems we need to address.

    From 9/11 we got homeland security. And from Katrina we woke up FEMA and other people to how important it is to be ready for disasters like this.

    Money wasted on Iraq could be put to much better use here...

    I really don't think Iraq is a waste. It is our step towards eliminating terrorism. Probably more important than putting that money toward a new casino.

    There are plenty of other places we can cut money from. If we stopped with this aid to Africa we would save trillions right there. If Africa's government can't take care of their own people, then THEY need to get to work, not us.

    First I'll deal with Louisianna: They don't even have counties there; they have parishes and their system of government is uniquely Casien/French. One of my best friends resides in Saint Charles. He is a diehard Democrat. He also became disgusted with Clinton and the Democrats because of the way they were running things in that state... and that was 10 years ago.

    I take exception to your statements about how Mississippi and Alabama didn't do any better. Only those communities isolated by trees and small roads were not immediately helped, but the good-old-boys in both of those states got out their chain saws and cleared the roads for themselves. They didn't just stand around moaning and groaning for someone else to help them. Their entire mentality is different because they are not a "hand out" state.

    Sorry Cody. I was one of the people who thought you might be going left. I promise to have more faith in you in the future.

    There's a new post at My Republican Blog that I think you will really enjoy. Just thought I'd let you know because I think this is your cup of tea!
