The voters will decide the fait of the Republicans when they vote in November, but it’s really funny how even if the Republicans don’t have control, it’s still their fault that things go wrong……….. Maybe the Democraps should get better leadership, of perhaps learn from the Republicans about how to force things through Congress controlled by the minority power?
Don't be so selective, there, the Republicans wrote the book on "lining their pockets" while the Democrats aren't shy about it either.

Each side should ultimately be beholden to the wishes of its constituents, rather than "forcing things through" Congress, as you say.

The Republican conundrum in Congress today stems in large part from the blind support of a failed Republican Presidential war policy and a disconnect with a constituency that save for a small number of diehards, no longer supports it.

Regardless of how well the battles in Baghdad are going, these days, a an honest reconsideration of the whole war effort, and its global effects on security, need to be reassessed. Just as in the lesson of the Tet offensive in 1968 in Vietnam.

Tell me, how is that "winning"? How exactly is this strategy paying off?

Insert typical Jayhawk non-answer here:
I know you are desperate to "believe" that President Bush is the root of all evil and that he caused terrorism worldwide, but even an idiot like you has to know that this war is not of his making. The difference is that when the terrorists attacked us on 9/11 President Bush said we are going to return the favor by taking it to them--which he has done, in spades. I think they terribly underestimated what our response would be. Bush took it to a whole new level and that has produced shock and awe throughout the Muslim world--providing terrorists worldwide and liberals in the US w/ ammunition to personally attack the President of the United States. Everyone here and in the Muslim world (all over the world) was expecting a Clintonesque response--two missiles up a camel's ass.

Well that isn't what happened, is it? And as a result is the terrorists--abroad and in this country--have jumped on the Bash Bush bandwagon--the terrorists abroad to inflict their brand of culture and religion on the world and the terrorist (sympathizers) here for purely partisan political reasons to destroy the President and win the WH and Congress in '08. Are you w/ me so far?

As a result, the cockroaches are coming out of the "woodwork" here and abroad. At least the terrorists abroad have evil but "honest" reasons for their actions. The same cannot be said for the political partisans in this country. Their motives are equally evil, but politically motivated. Politics has twisted the fact that our enemies started this war long before 9/11. Terrorists bombed the World Trade Center in 1993. They hit the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia in 1996, U.S. Embassies in East Africa in 1998 and the USS Cole in 2000. All the while, Osama bin Laden was advocating war against the US and building a terror network from camps in Afghanistan.

The most astonishing argument is the claim the US or the Bush administration is responsible for this terror wave. Terrorists are responsible for terror, period!

How's that for a "non-answer?"

Don't believe everything you think

Al Qaeda was in AFGHANISTAN! The full wrath and fury of the US ARMY should have been directed THERE! And possibly into Pakistan if the Taliban sought refuge there.

Instead Bush & Co. cooked up the WMD and peddled that story, which as we know now was a fairy tale.
Both you and that stupid argument are BoguS!!! Read my reply to Mr. Hatred above...

I think it was a typo: They meant to say Regressive not Progressive. The Republicans are the only Progressive element in the U.S. Congress today!

I guess the lesson there would be that even if you win, the media can and will make it look like you lost..............

Here are a few updates on Pakistan:
Pakistan criticizes U.S. terror warning

Militants behead 'US spy'


Like I said, it's starting to look like Iraq even without our direct occupation so what will this place look like when we walk into Islamabad and drape our US flag on Musharraf's statue, lose control and let the people have a looting party? Can anyone guess which ministries will not be looted?

Oh man did that Pakistani CIO SUCK big big way!!
