Columbia University is inviting Ahmadinejad to speak and be asked "tough" questions by the President and the audience. Yeah, right. It is surreal to me that the President of an alleged fine university in New York City would issue an invitation to the terrorist known as the leader of Iran and give him a forum to spew his hate-filled speech to our citizens. This, at a time that it is under reported that Iran is providing weapons to al-Qaeda in Iraq, killing and maiming our soldiers. There's a slice of the state of American higher education today.
It is incredible enough that the head Iranian thug will be allowed to speak before the U.N. But, that is common anymore. It was incredible that yesterday the mayor of New York said he would escort him on a tour of Ground Zero, until the public finally spoke up and Bloomberg backed down. Can you imagine? What the hell are these people thinking? He wants to lay a wreath in the pit. Wants to express sympathy. Yeah, sure. This from the dictator who want Sharia law in full force in his country. Women who had been expressing forms of freedom, quietly, like western dress and music, well, no more of that. Women are being forced to cover up again, stonings are a popular form of killing women who will not submit. He wants to destroy Israel. He dreams of a world without the U.S. Yeah, he must be one of Rosie O'Donnell's terrorists who is just a dad like everyone else.
Have you seen the video of the young member of YAF who confronts Rep. Murtha about his disgusting remarks made of our military members during the Hiditha incident? The remarks Murtha made that the Marines were killing innocent Iraqis in cold blood? The young man follows Murtha to the elevator and asks him if he'd like to issue an apology now that they have all been vindicated, with only one given a short jail sentence. The charges are being dropped on the rest of the men. Murtha pulls the 'have you ever been in the military?' crap. As if being a veteran is good enough of an excuse to lie about the military, at war in a foreign country. He is a disgrace. Now, too, C.R.E.W. has named Murtha as the most corrupt politician currently in the House. That's saying something since normally they lean heavily liberal. The young man told Murtha that his remarks were more in line with al-Jezzera than with a Congressman. Yes.
Murtha thinks there will be big gains made in the upcoming election for the Dems. We'll see, I suppose. He may want to take a gander at the latest polling numbers. Congress is at 11% approval. President Bush is at 29%. Draw from that what you will.
Hillary's campaign co-chair, Tom Vilsack is boasting that if Rudy is the nominee for the Republicans, her campaign will trot out all the baggage of his personal life. Well now. Is that really the road her campaign wants to travel? If she wants to run on Bill's coattails, which is how she got there to begin with, if she wants to assure everyone he'll be right there with her, if she promises to send him around the world as a goodwill ambassador, then I guess her personal life with him is up for grabs, too. What a bone-headed boast for that loser to make. He thought he was going to be president, then when he had to leave the race after about 2 weeks when he realized no one was really interested in the governor of Iowa, he had to go to work for Hillary.
Today I read a tidbit from Presidential candidate, Elizabeth Edwards. Oh, you thought her husband was running? She weighed in on Hillary's health care plan. "Mrs. Clinton has -seven and a half months after John unveiled his health care plan -unveiled a health care plan that is in every material respect just like John's." That from an AP article on Breitbart.com. She went on to say the plan was "John Edwards' health care plan as delivered by Hillary Clinton."
Hillary thinks since she has softened up her language and uses MUSAK style piano music in her latest commercial that you are too stupid to know her health care plan is a disaster waiting to happen. Hey, she'll 'let' you keep your current coverage. Until she changes her mind. Not even other Dems wanted her plan in 1993. She can put on all the pastel pink suits she wants. She's not fooling this mean Republican woman. I'm not nearly as stupid as she thinks I am.
Oh yeah. Did you see President Bush's press conference this morning? Me either. But I heard a great clip. One of the Dems, er, reporters, asked him what he thought of MoveOn's ad blasting General Petraeus. FINALLY, he said it was disgusting. He said the Dems want to insult the military more than they want to be successful in Iraq.
It is past time for Republicans to start hitting back. I am sick of the standard politeness of Republicans. It is time to stand up and be heard. Loud and proud.
And, yeah, I'm reading Laura Ingraham's new book, "Power to the People". I'm the proud owner of an autographed copy. Good on her.
