You know what? They're right, it IS easy and fun to play on names. Of course, it makes more sense when you are targeting a malicious group of screaming malcontents whose ability to comprehend an issue rarely extends beyond echoing the screeds of their propagandists, rather than falsely defaming the honor and mission of a man who has spent his life in honorable service defending our country and all its citizens, and a man impeccably capable of explaining the scope and requirements of the present war in Iraq.

Reading about the Petraeus hearing/circus I found myself wondering if he was thinking the following:

Watch this liberal logic on the Petraeus Report if you can stomache it.

Let's see Petraeus can't use statistics that's crass even though the Liberals have been counting down the soldier's deaths to the level of 9/11's like it was New Year's Eve.

This is where the Liberals get their "facts" to counter Petraeus and fight back with the resident Liberal "expert" Comedy Central's John Stewart. (He's better than us all because not only is he their brightest "light" but- damn it- he's the host of the Oscars.)

modern political discourse, an example:

rightwing "counter" to the above, "Say their buddy, you have every right in the world to express your opinion, but don't you think it's a little iresponsible to blast this stuff to the world during time of war ?"

lefty, "Oh my God! Oh my God! Did anyone juth thee that !?! He attacked me! He quethtoned my patwiotithm! NATHI - NATHI - NATHI!!! Repubwicanth are terrorith and Natheeth! I do believe I've got a cathe of the vaporth!"

Now, I know what you're thinking: "What the hell was that !?!" But that is what I hear every time some creepy peace perv like upchuck rangel, or jaff sadeki, or anyone of a hundred of their pundits (did you see Kirsten Powers state, with a straight face, that it is a "basic human right" for ANY foriegner to enter this country whenever they feel like it ? Lost my taste for blondes after that.) participates in a "debate" on one of the crucial issues of our time. The left should be ignored, not engaged. At least not until such time as they decide to grow up and join the real world.

And that goes for "Dubya" and his inclusive little, "Religion of peace", or, "Doing the jobs that Americans won't do", mantras that he is want to spew at us from time to time.

Dang, still not tired of making an ass of yourself are ya Barney?

CENTCOM commented on the made up lefty allegation and their exact words were:

The story is inaccurate

I know this is confusing for you, but since they commented, it is now up to you to show us where CENTCOM is lying. The Public Affairs Office at CENTCOM speaks for Admiral Fallon, therefore he denied the claim that he called Gen. Petraeus "an ass-kissing little chicken-sh*t".

If you noticed the sources you used which were The Daily Kos and Think Progress, they did not give a source as to who was there to witness this exchange. They only reported it as fact for the consumption of gullible lefties who would never have questioned the source. But you are here demanding it is true and I along with others question it.

Since you are still hanging on to the notion it is fact, then prove it. There must be something out there on the inter-web-net that backs you up.

Barney, it is also fair to assume that the Adm said nothing of the kind regarding Petraeus.

The bottom line is the article that you present as fact is inaccurate. Until the inaccuracies are outlined and the Adm. statement is confirmed, the validity of your statement can neither be confirmed nor denied, and therefore currently has no place in any rational discussion of the topic, other than meaningless mud-slinging.

What "my way or the highway" attitude are you talking about?

The fact is MoveOn.org accused a United States General of betraying his country because it disagreed with what he was going to say. MoveOn.org has a first amendment right to say it.

Now, some people find that offensive and disagree with it. Those people also have a first amendment right to reply.

While MoveOn.org has the right to say what they said, it doesn't mean that what they said was right. Just because, some people have a contrary view, we also have the right to express that opinion. Because, we express a different opinion, doesn't mean we are infringing on MoveOn.org's right to have their opinion.

So by all means, MoveOn.org should keep talking. As you say, the political middle is listening.

Here is what you said in post # 19 of this thread in defense of the MoveOn ad:

These are your words Barney. A little punk-ass nobody, did nothing, been nowhere lefty troll agreeing that General Petraeus is an ass-kissing little chickenshit. You said it about a man who has risked his life over three decades so you can curl up in your "binky" of security and trash men WAY WAY better then you could ever dream of being.

This is the link "Think Progress" used to trash Gen Petraus:

U.S.-IRAQ: Fallon Derided Petraeus, Opposed the Surge

WASHINGTON, Sep 12 (IPS) - In sharp contrast to the lionisation of Gen. David Petraeus by members of the U.S. Congress during his testimony this week, Petraeus's superior, Admiral William Fallon, chief of the Central Command (CENTCOM), derided Petraeus as a sycophant during their first meeting in Baghdad last March, according to Pentagon sources familiar with reports of the meeting

Again.....

according to Pentagon sources familiar with reports of the meeting

Not "according" to someone "AT" the meeting.
And it was brought up on our links "who the eff is the IPS"? Don't you think that if this was a legitimate story the MSM would have caught on to it and reported it?

It's nothing but lefties hearing something that they WANTED to hear to defend their "Betray Us" bullshit.

And you are dumb enough to repeat their slanders but your lefty buddies failed to coach you beyond the talking point. So the only thing you have left is to flail around looking like a moron defending what you posted by claiming our links were sufficient to back up your claim.

Uncle Jimbo (who is your only source of rebuttal) agrees that the denial is weak. Let the Admiral respond. I will take his word for it

That's a flat out lie. Uncle Jimbo said nothing of the sort implying CENTCOM's reply was weak.

He said:

That doesn't mean they take long showers together, but it just gets more comical to watch the left flailing about trying to find an angle to hang their anti-war shtick on. Their problem is the facts, and Gen. Petraeus and Amb. Crocker pummeled the Congressional clowns with those

Saying "That doesn't mean they take long showers together" is really a joke meant for consumption of the military audience. It a inside military joke.

Another version is saying this is my battle buddy, but that doesn't mean we swap spit or anything.

But then I wouldn't expect you to get military humor.

Baghdad barney:

the acquisition of what the Adm. said is all over this tread

Acquisition?

Ever think of a job in a "butcher shop?"

That is all the proof I need. You guys can flame away all you want. I am done with you.

Well of course it is. But don't go away mad, just go away.

But before you do go away and considering this post is about the movon.org ad and you're so breathlessly defending them I have a question:

Does it bother you that M.org blatently lied in their ad? The "General Petraeus or General Betray Us?" ad said this:

"Every independent report on the ground situation in Iraq shows that the surge strategy has failed. Yet the General claims a reduction in violence. That's because, according to the New York Times, the Pentagon has adopted a bizarre formula for keeping tabs on violence. For example, death by car bombs don't count."
The NYT printed this two days before the m.org ad:
"Casualties that result from fighting between groups, like the Mahdi Army and the Badr Corps, however, are not classified as sectarian, as they are the result of clashes between two Shiite organizations. But victims of all car bomb attacks and Shiite and Sunni infighting are included in the overall civilian casualty count."
Go ahead Baghdad - spin away!

And BTW Baghdad:

As far as the Clinton slur (like that never happens) it all depends on if the person attributed with the slur confirms or denies the saying of the slur.

Isn't that what we are asking you to do with the Adm's alleged slur? Yet you continue to spin and flail away and provide zip, nadda... ZERO in support of the lie.

Hey, did someone use NEWSWE... (Below threshold)
Son Of The Godfather:

Hey, did someone use NEWSWEEK as a source?... Cuz they're really tenacious about sources... They even uncovered an outrageous story about flushing a koran down a toilet... people even got killed over it!

Wait, the story wasn't real?

But the people who were killed due to the "story"... they were real.

Barney, dude, you got totally thumped on this one. Now go seethe.

Baghdad Barney has got to go lick his wounds. His ass is really sore from all the kicking of his stupid butt here at Wizbang. I have a feeling he get the same treatment everywhere he goes.

Baghdad barney:

Sorry, but I can't pass up a fast down the middle of he plate:

Yeah, but you passed up just about everything else didn't you?

Like why did MorOn.org ad lie about "death by car bombs don't count?"

I'll stake Newsweek record of accuracy over Bush's any day.

How about your own accuracy and claiming 200,000 Iraqi deaths? At least you didn't pull out the "Lancet Card" and claim 400,000 like rosie the carpet muncher.
