RE: Bush will try to bullshit his way out of his record of failure again tonight

Too bad Powell didn't have the balls to run in 2000. He'd have had a good chance of being elected. As it stands now, he lost a lot of credibility with folks on the left, for his loyalty to Bush, and on the right, for his self-serving press leaks when he tried to 'anonymously' disassociate himself from the Administration.

IMO, he should either have shut-up and supported the Adminstration or he should have resigned. Instead, he took the coward's path.

Not presidential material.

I think that's a fairly accurate assessment of his current stature. I know lots of liberal-types who thought he was a straight shooter with a solid pedigree of integrity. These folks were really deeply hurt and offended on a personal level when he signed on to the NeoCon agenda, even if ever so tepidly--he's permanently damaged goods in their eyes. The same probably goes for McCain and Lieberman as well.

We could get into a good discussion of the subject of deductive logic here, something our prez seemed very short of. What the hell did they think would happen after placing a 140,000 Christians troops smack dab in middle of the Muslim heartland - troops who are killing civilians under the heading of "mistakes happen in war", for chrissakes ?
It is all now quite apparent that they did not think, beyond the taking of Baghdad. They violated all three of Colin Powell's rules of war.

Joe B.
1. Quick in and quick out. The American public will tolerate nothing else.
2. Use overwhelming force. Obliterate the enemy and awe them into submission.
3. Get the authority from the U.N. so other enemies are not made.
