Bush Losing War on Terror

Posted by Bob Brigham

Senator Harry Reid, via Talk Left:

As of this month, more time has passed since 9-11 than the time between Pearl Harbor and the defeat of Japan. During those three years and eight months – sixty years ago – we invaded North Africa and Normandy. We freed people from the Philippines to France. Hitler lay dead and Tojo was in chains. We had defeated fascism around the world and had begun to build the new United Nations.

But today Osama bin Laden is still on the loose, our homeland is still not secure, we’re still not energy independent, and – in many ways – Americans are less safe than we were before 9-11.

If Bush and Rice wouldn't have been so incompetent, Osama would have faced justice by now. Instead, Bush decided to invade Iraq, pushing our country into a needless war which we ARE LOSING.

Not only are we losing, but Juan Cole says we're going to keep losing. In the process of losing the war in Iraq, Bush has destroyed the perception of U.S. invulnerability.

In the days following 9/11, the entire world rallied for America. Each day since then, Bush's disasterous policies have turned much of the world against us. Bush has lost a war, lost the lives of far too many American soldiers, and lost a once in a lifetime opportunity.

In the time it took FDR (Democrat) to kick ass worldwide, Bush (Republican) couldn't even kick Osama's ass. It isn't just that Bush doesn't measure up against America's great leaders, but with each passing day he is ensuring a legacy: Worst. President. Ever.

What a soundbite! (And I don't mean this in a negative way). If the Dems can talk like this in '08! It shows the truth about this adminsitration: INCOMPETENCE.

Has anyone heard -- I heard last night on the radio that the Congressman who coined "freedom toast" has now said the war was a mistake and that Congress was misled into sending men and women to war and he wishes he had voted against it? The Republicans are truly in trouble ...
