"Do You Want Us to Win?"

Lorie wrote a great post about Lynne Cheney handing Wolf Blitzer his rear end live on CNN the other day. In case you haven't seen the video, watch it here:

Only days later Bill O'Reilly went on Letterman and asked David Letterman the same question. Of course, Bill couldn't get a straight answer (video courtesy of Ian at Hot Air):


Not only do Blitzer and Letterman need to answer the question, but al Reuters, the Associated (with terrorists) Press, the New York Times, USA Today, the rest of the terrorist sympathizing media, and the lefty moonbats like Murtha, Sheehan, et al should answer it as well. Do they want us to win? Or would they prefer America lose the war on terror? And by the way, yes, the war in Iraq is part of the war on terror.

Funny that you wingnuts have to keep repeating that -- everyone knows its a lie, but I guess you think if you repeat the lie often enough you might convince a few voters.

The Republican spin on Lynne Cheney and Bill O'Reilly flailing about on national television is a riot. Cheney comes off looking like an idiot, and O'Reily does her one better -- looking like his usual lying idiot.

Note that Kim linked to a brief, edited version of Lynne Cheney on CNN. Watch the full, unedited first 10 minutes for the full effect of her dismal performance.

This is just a suggestion. Please go infest elsewhere. I listened to the whole Blitzer Chaney interview on the radio. Wold tried, but he got his ass handed to him. He did not answer the questions she asked, but he did flub. He denied using, then later called the sniper film propagada. Sorry, one film cannot be both not and be propagada.

Meanwhile, your support for socialism and your hate for anything or anybody that dares acknowledge God will remain as rabid as always.

When there's a war we all really need to fight Americans will show up and support it. This is a war of control using terror to gain power. A real president and statesman like FDR would tell his countrymen, "We have nothing to fear but fear itself".

Thank you, field negro, for that wonderful insight. Finally, someone is honest. You see, because it's a Republican controlled government right now we should lose. Nevermind that it's still America you f**tards! Well gee whiz, let's ask this question, "Would you want us to win if it was the Democratic money grubbing,boy chasing,draft dodging party?" Don't try to tell me those labels can't be pinned on members of your party as well. You don't want America to win. You want the Democrats to win. Period.

You guys come in here thinking you're keeping Wizbang hosts honest by countering with some of your own partisan crap? The fact is - this is a conservative blog. They make no bones about it. They do not apologize for it, yet, somehow this makes you angry. Why? Do you go to lefty blogs and correct them when they're disseminating misinformation? I sincerely doubt it. You know why?

Thought you were a lawyer??Doubt it seriously,,,i think you're a high school senior Young Republican and you try to make your insults and effete snobbery sound better than most. Ah,,,,,your momma wore combat boots. Why don't you just say it.

The usual lunatic fringe who advocate violence against the left or anyone else they don't like are, well, being the lunatics they are.

The last argument you wingnuts can make is to YELL, yes I said YELL HYPOCRITE. That's all you have. You can't win on much of anything. The war is in shambles. Your hero president doesn't know if was for stay the course before he was against it. The corruption in the republican congress smells like a sewer. The do-nothing republican congress passes stupid legislation to build a wall but no money to build it. The rich keep getting richer and the rest of the country takes it up the ass.

So, what's left? All you can do is go nah nah nah nah or hypocrite, hypocrite, pt it's not our fault it's Clinton's (soon he will be single handily responsible for Katrina). You mock people's service to the country and call them america haters. You support racist ads and racist attacks when it comes to election time.

The desperation is so obvious. Your party and your philosophy is bankrupt. Just look at the threads on Wizbang. Hardly a peep from the nut writers about issues. They can't say anything because they have nothing to say.

The party of xenophobia and race baiting; the party of Limbaugh and Coulter and Savage and O'Reilly; the party that doesn't want to accept or discuss dissent; the party for doing away with the things like basic human rights that this country has stood for from the beginning.

If you have something to say about me - read: "me" - then say so plainly instead of quoting the most far out claim you can come up with and assume I agree because you think I'm some sort of enemy that needs to be put in her place. That's pathetic.

Anyone with an opinion can find supportive evidence to bolster their claim. But naming any opposing evidence a crackpot-theory or challenging the integrity of those with opposing ideas with assumptions about them you couldn't possibly know is really bad.

Believing the Earth is 6,000 years old is not exactly "the most far out claim" one can come up with. Ok, it is pretty out there in terms of plausibility, but in terms of what people actually believe, not so much.

It's not easy to find a poll that asks people how old they think the Earth is, but about 45% of Americans believe humans were created by God in their present form sometime in the past 10,000 years. This number has not changed significantly in over 20 years, and those who believe this do so no doubt because it jibes with their religious convictions/education. In order to believe this you have to reject evolution and the dating techniques used on fossils. And if you reject those, you most likely reject the techniques used to date the planet and the universe. Plus, if you believe humans were created as the bible states, then it only logically follows that you believe the Earth was created on the same timeframe. In any case I think it's safe to assume that a very large number of Americans believe the Earth was created in past 10,000 years.

I have no data on the beliefs of Wizbang readers/commenters. Hopefully they're not as stupid as the general public.

Democrat Slowdown Signs -- Except at CNN


WOLF DEMOCRATS
Lots of headscratching was going on Friday evening and over the weekend about the decision by CNN producers and uberanchor Wolf Blitzer to blindside former colleague (she hosted "CNN Crossfire" back in the day) Lynn Cheney.

Aside from using questions culled from talking points on the Jim Webb scandal provided to a CNN associate producer by the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, Blitzer, -- without checking out the veracity of the talking points -- quizzed Cheney about the techniques used against suspected terrorists and her views on the Bush Administration. Cheney had been invited to discuss her new children's book, but came prepared to battle Blitzer, and more than held her own.

Why was Blitzer so aggressive? "It was all about ratings, and the fact that we have this series of specials called 'Where the Right Went Wrong' running on the network," says the CNN insider.

Part of that series ran later Friday evening after Cheney's emasculation of Blitzer (video here).

In fact, CNN producers, with the approval of more senior executives, intend to run the highly politicized, pro-Democrat Party "Where the Right Went Wrong" in the days leading into Election Day. The series uses original reporting, as well as materials, including statistics and research developed by the DNC, MoveOn.org and the labor-funded 527, Americans Coming Together, though the those sources are never mentioned in the segments.

"There are people who are wondering why this is being run so close to election day," says the CNN employee. "The questions have been asked, but we haven't gotten a satisfactory answer. But as soon as we saw the Cheney segment, we knew what they were trying to do. It wasn't just about attacking Cheney. It was about building momentum for the other programming we are running. It's about counterprogramming Fox News."

Number of people covered increased to 247.3M from 245.9M in 2005.

Ironic: Bush's highest level of uninsured people is still lower than Clinton's highest level (16.3% in 1998).

After all, Benedict Arnold was one of our best military leaders in the Revolution. Doesn't mean the whole betrayal thing didn't happen.

The left's new belief that only a vet can run the military is one of the more absurd recent contributions to modern politics. I'm fairly certain the Dems REALLY don't want the military to have much of a voice in politics.

Well, if Gore's behavior in 2000 is an indication.

The Big Question "Do you want us to win in Iraq"..??

First Mr. Dick Cheney famous "ticking bomb" scenario to justify torture of detainees and ignoring the over whelming sense of Congress to by articulately helping Bush issue a signing statement that "The executive branch shall construe the amendment, relating to detainees torture, in a manner consistent with the constitutional authority of the President" and now Mr. Bill O'Reily asking us "Do you want us to win in Iraq?" to justify "staying the course" in Iraq without a well established exit strategy.

I hope the American people see the pattern emerging from these baseless arguments. I cannot speak for all American people but as far as I am concerned my response to Bill O'Reily question is, NO, Mr. Bill, I don't want to "win" in Iraq if it costs us ONE MORE AMERICAN LIFE. My conscience does not allow me to justify the death of any more American soldiers to honor the cause of our brave men and women who already lost their lives due to the lack of Iraq reconstruction planning by this administration. Mr. Cheney remarks, "It is my belief that be will be greeted as liberators" was dead wrong and it is unfortunate that Americans fail to question such a rational for preemptive invasion and put our soldiers in harms way.
