It’s Over

(Photo via the Chicago Tribune)

The Chicago Bulls are up three games on the defending champs Miami Heat. I know it takes four games to win the series, but the Bulls took the Heat best shot and cheap shots and still won the game. The Heat are too old and Dwyane Wade can not play Super Hero this time to make a comeback. It’s going to be over on Sunday.

Bring on the Detroit Pistons.

Quote of the Day

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney waves the white flag on hunting down terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden.
"It's not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person"
Mitt Romney is just following lead of this Party top official, President Bush.
Terror is bigger than one person.... So I don't know where he is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you.
A vote for Mitt Romney is a vote to continue President Bush failed polices.

Quote of the Day

Today’s quote of the day is by a Conservative Blogger who is out of touch with reality.
If only Democrats still had the John Kennedy-Joe Lieberman mentality on world affairs, they would probably still be in the majority. Joe Lieberman is a breath of fresh air from the heated, emotional, vitriolic statements that come out of the current Democrat leaders. His logic and observations are inexcapable [sic] to those still with their heads about them.
The Carpetbagger Report:
But let’s back up: Democrats “would probably still be in the majority” if only they’d listen to Lieberman?

I’m fairly certain Democrats are in the majority, in large part because they didn’t listen to Lieberman.

The Horror... The Horror

Presidential Candidate Rudy Giuliani claims that the Republican Party lead by him are the only people who can keep the American people save from the horrors or terrorism and if you elected a Democratic President, you are surrendering to the terrorist and welcoming attacks on us.

Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama responses to Rudy Giuliani fear mongering.
“Rudy Giuliani today has taken the politics of fear to a new low and I believe Americans are ready to reject those kind of politics. America’s mayor should know that when it comes to 9/11 and fighting terrorists, America is united. We know we can win this war based on shared purpose, not the same divisive politics that question your patriotism if you dare to question failed policies that have made us less secure. I think we should focus on strengthening our intelligence, working with local authorities and doing all the things we haven't yet done to keep Americans safe. The threat we face is real, and deserves better than to be the punchline of another political attack.”

VP Cheney should really keep …

… this mouth shut.

George McGovern, a former U.S. senator from South Dakota and was the Democratic nominee for president in 1972.
Cheney is wrong about me, wrong about war.

Vice President Dick Cheney recently attacked my 1972 presidential platform and contended that today's Democratic Party has reverted to the views I advocated in 1972. In a sense, this is a compliment, both to me and the Democratic Party. Cheney intended no such compliment. Instead, he twisted my views and those of my party beyond recognition. The city where the vice president spoke, Chicago, is sometimes dubbed "the Windy City." Cheney converted the chilly wind of Chicago into hot air. [...]

He also said that the McGovern way is to surrender in Iraq and leave the U.S. exposed to new dangers. The truth is that I oppose the Iraq war, just as I opposed the Vietnam War, because these two conflicts have weakened the U.S. and diminished our standing in the world and our national security.

In the war of my youth, World War II, I volunteered for military service at the age of 19 and flew 35 combat missions, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross as the pilot of a B-24 bomber. By contrast, in the war of his youth, the Vietnam War, Cheney got five deferments and has never seen a day of combat — a record matched by President Bush. [...]

On one point I do agree with Cheney: Today's Democrats are taking positions on the Iraq war similar to the views I held toward the Vietnam War. But that is all to the good. [...]

We, of course, already know that when Cheney endorses a war, he exempts himself from participation. On second thought, maybe it's wise to keep Cheney off the battlefield — he might end up shooting his comrades rather than the enemy.

On a more serious note, instead of listening to the foolishness of the neoconservative ideologues, the Cheney-Bush team might better heed the words of a real conservative, Edmund Burke: "A conscientious man would be cautious how he dealt in blood."


In the race to be the most despicable member of Congress, Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California is at the top of the list.

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Retired Marine Corps General John J. Sheehan on why he turn down the position of war czar.
But after thoughtful discussions with people both in and outside of this administration, I concluded that the current Washington decision-making process lacks a linkage to a broader view of the region and how the parts fit together strategically. We got it right during the early days of Afghanistan — and then lost focus. We have never gotten it right in Iraq. For these reasons, I asked not to be considered for this important White House position. These huge shortcomings are not going to be resolved by the assignment of an additional individual to the White House staff. They need to be addressed before an implementation manager is brought on board.

'08 McCain: I have no Plan B

Recently, Senator John McCain made some ridiculous remarks about how safe it is to walk in some neighborhoods in Baghdad. To prove this point, McCain walked thru a marketplace with 100 American soldiers, with three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gun. Senator McCain talking points did not match the reality on the ground. To counter the criticism of this Baghdad stroll, the Straight Talk Express claimed its fun to misspeak about serious issues.

Its becoming increasing clear John McCain is willing to say anything in order to become President. This latest declaration is he has no plan B for this Presidential campaign Iraq.
“I have no Plan B,” Mr. McCain said in an interview. “If I saw that doomsday scenario evolving, then I would try to come up with one. But I cannot give you a good alternative because if I had a good alternative, maybe we could consider it now.”
Again, the Senator misspoke. The escalation of the Iraq war was President Bush and Senator McCain plan B for Iraq. The shocking part is the Senator can not envision a policy lead by President Bush failing.

On a related note, Senator Jim Webb points out McCain hypocrisy over questioning people patriotism.
I’m disappointed in John McCain. I’ve known him for many years. The day before we begin the debate on the Iraq bills, he pulled me aside on the Senate floor and said, Jim, we do not want the situation we had in the Vietnam War. We do not want one side impugning the patriotism of the other side, and John McCain has been doing this consistently since that time. I don’t believe that it is in anybody’s interest for members of the Senate to be impugning the other side’s patriotism, or by the way, to be hiding behind the troops as political justification for what we’re doing.

Quote of the Day

Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid, in response to the latest rants of Vice President Dick Cheney.
It's interesting that the vice president would make a reference to the 1970s because, just like Nixon, President Bush is isolated and hunkered down in the White House while his administration is under investigation and top officials are withholding key evidence.

The American people stop listening to Vice President Dick Cheney deranged tirades a long time ago. The media should follow suit, Dick ‘Big Time’ Cheney has no creditability left.

The Scariness of a Giuliani Presidency

Republican candidate for President Rudy Giuliani has no foreign policy credentials. But, that is not stopping him from running as a tough guy on foreign policy issues. That by it’s self is scary, but it gets worst.
Mr. Giuliani has criticized some aspects of the American performance in Iraq, but has basically supported the President’s plan without addressing its specific shortcomings. Asked about his day-to-day Iraq advisor, his campaign would only say that he speaks with many individuals, including retired Gen. Jack Keane and former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton.
If you really like President Bush Iraq war policies, then you are going to love John Bolton advising Rudy Giuliani.

Also, Michael Tomasky has an article in American Prospect about the uglier side of Rudy Giuliani. Give it a read.

Does anyone know how to add a right sidebar to my blog?

Ideological Fantasies

Democratic President Candidate Barack Obama:
“Progress in Iraq cannot be measured by the same ideological fantasies that got us into this war, it must be measured by the reality of the facts on the ground, and today those sobering facts tell us to change our strategy and bring a responsible end to this war."

"No matter how much this Administration wishes it to be true, the idea that the situation in Iraq is improving because it only takes a security detail of 100 soldiers, three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships to walk through a market in the middle of Baghdad is simply not credible or reflective of the facts on the ground."

"What we need today is a surge in honesty. The truth is, the Iraqis have made little progress toward the political solution between Shiia and Sunni which is the last, best hope to end this war. I believe that letting the Iraqi government know America will not be there forever is the best way to pressure the warring factions toward this political settlement, which is why my plan begins a phased withdrawal from Iraq on May 1st, 2007, with the goal of removing all combat troops by March 31st, 2008."

Senator John ’08 McCain would think twice the next time he mentions Senator Obama in this talking points.

Thomas Jefferson:
“Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”
George W. Bush:
"I glance at the headlines, just to get kind of a flavor," he told Brit Hume of Fox News last month. But, "I rarely read the stories" because "a lot of times there's opinions mixed in with news." Instead, "I get briefed by [White House Chief of Staff] Andy Card and Condi [Rice, the national security adviser] in the morning."

The president concluded, "The best way to get the news is from objective sources. And the most objective sources I have are people on my staff who tell me what's happening in the world."
(Hat Tip to The Carpetbagger Report)

The Commander in Chief wants to…

… delegated this Commander in Chief duties.
The White House wants to appoint a high-powered czar to oversee the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with authority to issue directions to the Pentagon, the State Department and other agencies, but it has had trouble finding anyone able and willing to take the job, according to people close to the situation.

At least three retired four-star generals approached by the White House in recent weeks have declined to be considered for the position, the sources said, underscoring the administration's difficulty in enlisting its top recruits to join the team after five years of warfare that have taxed the United States and its military.
This is another lame attempt by the White House to show the American people that they really, really have a plan for ‘victory’ in Iraq. President Bush can dress up and read his speech full of talking points trashing the Democrats while pointing to progress in Iraq by appointing a ‘war czar’.

They have a problem, no one wants the job of ‘war czar’.
We already have Secretaries of State and Defense, we already have a military chain of command, and we already have an NSC that's supposed to coordinate all this stuff. Does anyone truly think that a shiny new White House staffer with no budgetary authority, no bureaucratic support, and little in the way of institutional levers of control is going to be able to magically get everyone on the same page sometime in the next few months? It's a suicide mission, and the fact that Bush apparently thinks that a bit of org chart shuffling will make a significant difference in Iraq is just one more sign of how deeply out of touch with reality he is.
This man is unfit to lead; he wants to delegate this Commander in Chief duty to a war czar because the job has become too hard for him to handle.

John ’08 McCain Does this Best …

…President Bush impressions.
Republican presidential contender John McCain says the four-year war in Iraq is "necessary and just" and accused anti-war Democrats of being reckless.

In remarks he's to deliver this morning at the Virginia Military Institute, the Republican presidential candidate pleads for patience, asking Americans to give President Bush's troop build-up a chance to succeed.
Why does Senator John McCain thinks copying President Bush rhetoric would help him in this quest for the Presidency? Calling Democrats reckless has not helped President Bush poll numbers.

Could the elite media be wrong?

After the Democrats took control of Congress, the beltway media was telling the Democrats that the American people did not want ‘an endless series of investigations into the Bush administration scandals’.

It seems they were wrong.

The Common Man?

For some reason this simple question seem to get politicians in trouble, what is the price of a gallon of milk?
Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani hasn't done a lot of grocery shopping lately — at least based on his answers about the cost of milk and bread. [..]

But when asked about more mundane matters — like the price of some basic staples — Giuliani had trouble with a reporter's question.

"A gallon of milk is probably about a $1.50, a loaf of bread about a $1.25, $1.30," he said.

A check of the Web site for D'Agostino supermarket on Manhattan's Upper East Side showed a gallon of milk priced at $4.19 and a loaf of white bread at $2.99 to $3.39. In Montgomery, Ala., a gallon of milk goes for about $3.39 and bread is about $2.
Seriously, Rudy Giuliani should have been prepared by this staff to answer this stupid question that all candidates have to answer.

Supporting the Troops?

‘Supporting the Troops’ should not be a political issue. If you are a person of the left or right, we should agree that the American military should continue to be the best trained, fully-equipped fighting force in the world. We can disagree over the policy of the used of American force across the world, but our disagreements should not be used as rhetoric to tarnish our political opponents as weak on terrorism or unpatriotic. President Bush and this Republican Party controlled Congress for the most part of the past seven years and under their leadership we have seen failed policies that are leading to the start of the destruction of the American military. ‘Supporting the Troops’ has now become a political issue. President Bush and his allies in Congress want to escalate the Iraq war while wrecking the American military.

The Pentagon is sending troops back to Iraq to support the escalation without giving the troops their fully well deserved rest time to spend with family and friends back in the states.
For just the second time since the war began, the Army is sending large units back to Iraq without giving them at least a year at home, defense officials said Monday. The move signaled how stretched the U.S. fighting force has become.

A combat brigade from New York and a Texas headquarters unit will return to Iraq this summer in order to maintain through August the military buildup President Bush announced earlier this year. [..]

The Army will try not to shorten the troops' U.S. time, "but in this case we had to," said a senior Army official, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue. "Obviously right now the Army is stretched," the official said. [..]

The only other major unit to spend less than one year at home was the Georgia-based 3rd Brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division, which returned to Iraq 48 days short of a year and is there now, according to the Army.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman acknowledged that the Texas unit's 81 day shortfall in rest time, "is not insignificant."
Wow. How out of touch is Bryan Whitman? Sending troops for the second or third tours of duties in Iraq without giving them proper resting time is significant. This is straining the Army personal and their families. The Army troops already in Iraq are seeing their tours of duties extended. President Bush is demanding Army troops to spend less time at home with their families and more time in Iraq in the war zone to support the escalate. It gets worst; the Pentagon is shipped injured troops back into the battle. President Bush continues to send our men and women to the war zone without the proper armored equipment.

President Bush and this allies in Congress failed policies are leading to an increase of desertion and other unauthorized absences.
From 2002 through 2006, the average annual rate of Army prosecutions of desertion tripled compared with the five-year period from 1997 to 2001, to roughly 6 percent of deserters, from 2 percent, Army data shows. [..]

In total, the Army since 2002 has court-martialed twice as many soldiers for desertion and other unauthorized absences as it did on average each year between 1997 and 2001. Deserters are soldiers who leave a post or fail to show up for an assignment with the intent to stay away. Soldiers considered absent without leave, or AWOL, which presumes they plan to return, are classified as deserters and dropped from a unit’s rolls after 30 days.

Most soldiers who return from unauthorized absences are punished and discharged. Few return to regular duty.
I won’t point out the hypocrisy of the military cracking down on desertion while the Commander in Chief has questionable military record.


It’s a time for a change of policy before President Bush completely rips apart the military.

Do you have to prepare to tell the truth?

Apparently, the answer is yes if you are Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
At a recent "prep" for a prospective Sunday talk-show interview, Gonzales's performance was so poor that top aides scrapped any live appearances. During the March 23 session in the A.G.'s conference room, Gonzales was grilled by a team of top aides and advisers — including former Republican National Committee chair Ed Gillespie and former White House lawyer Tim Flanigan — about what he knew about the plan to fire seven U.S. attorneys last fall. But Gonzales kept contradicting himself and "getting his timeline confused," said one participant who asked not to be identified talking about a private meeting. His advisers finally got "exasperated" with him, the source added. "He's not ready," Tasia Scolinos, Gonzales's public-affairs chief, told the A.G.'s top aides after the session was over, said the source.
Kevin Drum of the Washington Monthly:
Everyone prepares for congressional testimony, but this is ridiculous. If Gonzales was planning to simply tell the truth, he wouldn't "keep contradicting himself" in practice sessions and he wouldn't need to bring his schedule to a standstill in order to figure out what he's planning to say. He'd just review the appropriate documents to make sure he had his dates straight and then tell Congress what happened.

Obviously, though, that's not quite what he's planning to do, is it?

The reason Attorney General Alberto Gonzales keeps on contradicting himself is he is planning to mislead Congress. I can understand if people forget dates and events, but this is not the case with Alberto Gonzales. The Bush White House have told so many lies about U.S Attorney scandal it is hard for the Attorney General to keep them straight.

On a related note, the U.S Attorney scandal is hitting the State of Wisconsin. The Bush White House wanted the U.S Attorneys to make politically motivated prosecutions to help them during the 2006 elections. This is corruption. Luckily, Democrats control congress and what happen in Wisconsin can be investigated.

Bill O'Reilly Unhinged

Bill O'Reilly hates illegal immigrants. This hatred has let him to attempt to score cheap political points in the tragic death of a young girl killed by a drunk driver.
In the entire, dark, black history of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, this is probably the craziest clip ever. A young girl was tragically killed by a drunk driver. But this was not enough for O'Reilly. Instead, because the criminal was an illegal alien he added this incident to his ongoing crusade against the brown people. Luckily Geraldo was on the show and he - to his credit - called out O'Reilly's xenophobia for exactly what it was. This drove Bill O'Reilly insane. I was almost certain he was going to reach across the table and hit Geraldo.

The father of young girl who died responds to Bill O'Reilly.
The mayor and Tessa Trachant's father both said that making an issue out of immigration loses the focus that the girls were killed by a man that police said was driving drunk.

Ray Trachant said, "We need to heal, and to bring immigration, that's disrespectful to a family who's just mourning."
Indeed. It is very disrespectful.

Senator Clinton Worst Nightmare

A well funded Democratic contender.
Sen. Barack Obama's announcement Wednesday that he has raised nearly as much money as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton this year, bringing in $25 million for his presidential bid from a wide array of contributors, shakes up the race and makes it clear no Democrat will enjoy the early dominance the former first lady had been trying to establish.
The junior Democratic Senator of Illinois is giving President Clinton and Senator Clinton a ballgame. Part of Senator Clinton appeal for the Democratic nomination was her fundraising capabilities lead by former President Clinton. What makes Senator Barack Obama numbers so impressive it matches the efforts of President Clinton and Senator Clinton combined.
The New York Times reported last week that Bill was was used in 17 fundraisers over the course of 6 weeks by the Clinton campaign this quarter.
If you take a closer look at Senator Obama fundraising it shows he has a deep base to increase this campaign war chest.
Obama raised $6.9 million—more than a quarter of his total—over the Internet from more than 50,000 online donors, a base of supporters his campaign hopes to cultivate into regular givers. His campaign said 90 percent of the online contributions were for $100 or less. [..]

His campaign said that at least $23.5 million of its first-quarter collection would be available for the primary campaign, an important distinction because candidates are able to raise money now for both the primary and general elections.
Again, this is Senator Clinton worst nightmare.

This is not going to help Newt Gingrich within the Hispanic community. As a Spanish speaker, watching this video was painful. I would have respected this act of contrition more if it was done in English with Spanish subtitles. F’ing up someone else language while sounding condescending only shows how much of an elites you really are.

I can’t wait in till Newt Gingrich jumps in the race; it is going to be fun watching the Republican Party make total fools out of themselves.

What is Vice President Dick Cheney doing behind bush?

Open-ended War

If Kevin Drum was a Congressional Democrat, this is what he would say to President Bush and the American people.
It's unfortunate that President Bush continues to play chicken with the well-being of our troops in the field. Up on the Hill we're working hard to pass a bill that fully funds the war in Iraq, but today the president warned that "if either the House or Senate version of this bill comes to my desk, I will veto it." Apparently it's more important for him to play political games than it is to get our commanders on the ground the funds they desperately say they need.

And what is it that's so important that he's willing to risk the safety of our men and women in uniform? His continuing insistence on open-ended war, with no benchmarks for progress, no accountability to the public, and no end in sight.

This is no place for politics. President Bush has a chance to sign a bill that contains every dollar he's asked for, along with sensible, flexible benchmarks for standing up Iraqi troops and finally bringing our soldiers home. In a time of war, it would be irresponsible for the commander-in-chief to veto this legislation while our troops in combat are waiting for the funds.

It is President Bush who is denying troops in the field vital funding for the war effort with this veto threat. The supporters of President Bush Iraq war policy are for open-ended war with out any accountability and no plan to bring the troops back home. The Democrats in Congress offer a new approach.
1. Fully fund the troops.
2. Embrace a plan with enforced benchmarks.
3. The war in Iraq must not be open-ended.
4. The status quo is a disaster; phased withdrawal offers hope.
It’s a time for change.

With Friends Like These ...

... who needs enemies.

Leaving the aside the fact of Matthew Dowd being one of the architects of the horrid Republican machine lead by Karl Rove and President Bush, to attack his personal life to discredit this criticism of the Bush White house is shameless.
Dowd is finally coming clean, and he had to know the push-back was coming. But going after his personal life? This is what the White House does to its friends; no wonder these guys never hesitate to screw the rest of us.

Welcome Back

I hope it is for good, KC.

Newt Gingrich is in the Ghetto

This is pure racism.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich equated bilingual education Saturday with "the language of living in a ghetto" and mocked requirements that ballots be printed in multiple languages. [..]

"The American people believe English should be the official language of the government. ... We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto," Gingrich said to cheers from the crowd of more than 100.
Good people can disagree over the merits of bilingual education, but to call Spanish and other languages ‘ghetto’ is racist. In the Republican base, this type of gutter politics is welcome with open arms. Recently, Republican candidate for President Tom Tancredo called Miami a 'Third World country' without facing any rebuke from Spanish speaking members of the Republican Party. Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida invited Tom Tancredo to Miami for a talk at a five-star beachfront resort. I expect Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen or RNC Chairman Mel Martinez rather than condemn Newt Gingrich insulting remarks they would personal teach him Spanish.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and RNC Chairman Mel Martinez will not stand up to the likes of Tom Tancredo or Newt Gingrich because they dare not to attack their fellow Republicans for continuous belittlement of their communities. They will remain spineless spokesman for the GOP while the Republican Party is follow the lead of Tom Tancredo’s brown people bashing rather than offering real solutions.
