2008 Presidential Material?.....

Rec'd this via web news today.

I'm not looking forward to a long drawn out campaign for the 2008 election.... but I'm glad that one more gifted than I in communication, has entered the fray and voiced his concerns.
For me, its way too early for me to plant my flag behind a specific candidate.
I have had many concerns how many of my "right thinking" bloggers have seemed to jump in with both feet into the Rudy boat.


"Is Rudy Giuliani presidential timber? I think not," Dobson said in the commentary.
"Can we really trust a chief executive who waffles and feigns support for policies that run contrary to his alleged beliefs? Of greater concern is how he would function in office," he said.
Giuliani leads the 10-man Republican field in national polls despite longstanding doubts about his candidacy from conservatives, but he has seen his lead over second-place Sen. John McCain (
news, bio, voting record) of Arizona shrink in recent weeks as social issues have moved to the fore of the debate.

Giuliani earned a national reputation for his leadership while he was mayor of New York after the September 11 attacks.

Dobson said Giuliani had tried to hide his views from conservatives, but "this leopard has not changed his spots." He also said the former mayor's three marriages raised "moral concerns about Giuliani's candidacy that conservatives should find troubling."


I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out in the media.
I loved the part in the last paragraph.... "this leopard has not changed his spots."

Our Mission in Iraq

This today from the web.

My question is: "And there is NOT a presence of terrotists (or foriegn fighters) in Iraq?

The soldiers went missing after an attack in a dangerous rural area on Saturday in which four other U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi translator belonging to the same patrol were killed.
The apparently coordinated strike came as U.S.

President George W. Bush' name=c1> SEARCHNews News Photos Images Web' name=c3> President George W. Bush is deploying 30,000 more U.S. troops due in
Iraq' name=c1> SEARCHNews News Photos Images Web' name=c3> Iraq in June and as Democrats in Congress step up calls for the withdrawal of American forces in the four-year old war.

"We believe they were abducted by terrorists belonging to al Qaeda or an affiliated group and this assessment is based on highly credible intelligence information," U.S. military spokesman Major-General William Caldwell said in the first U.S. admission that the three had been seized by the militant group.

The al Qaeda-led Islamic State in Iraq demanded in a Web site statement that Washington stop a search involving more than 4,000 U.S. troops to guarantee the welfare of the soldiers.
"Your soldiers are in our grip. If you want the safety of your soldiers then do not search for them," it said.


It seems to me that, al Qaeda has a high priority on the Capitol of Iraq, and the removal of U.S. troops from the region, and beyond!!!!


While my heart goes out to those families whose loved ones are in enemy hands'...
I have to say the mission they are on, is just, and the enemy is vile!

Please pray for our troops!

The President's veto of a bad bill!

I got this from the web today.

A quote from Nancy Pelosi:

"The president has turned a tin ear to the wishes of the American people," Pelosi said during the hour-long debate beforehand. "The president wants a blank check. The Congress will not give it to him."

My take is this, The American people who elected Pres. Bush, have as say too!

I, for one, back his veto... and I am incensed at the opposition!

I know of many in Iraq that are thankful for our involvement, and a desire to see democracy and order prevail!

While I too wish the killing and bloodshed to end in Iraq, the Democrats ideas are ill-founded, and short-sighted!
