Obama and the "surge"

I think it is interesting how Obama's defense secretary is trying to convince everyone Obama's surge plan is a good one by comparing it to Bush's Iraq surge.

That is the same surge Obama claimed didn't work.

Isn't it great the Obama is simply copying the war strategy of GWB. The hated, stupid, worthless, failure GWB? (says the left).

How do you feel about that liberals?
The only difference in the plans is that Bush was a success because he started something with the intention of winning it and Obama has already decided the date he is going to lose.

So, way to go Obama. Way to copy GWB in every way accept the being successful part...

This sums up my feelings about that certain type of Obama supporter:

How far we've fallen from the declaration of Thomas Jefferson: "In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."...Those who venerated Bush because he was a morally upright and strong evangelical-warrior-family man and revere Palin as a common-sense Christian hockey mom see Obama as an inspiring, kind, sophisticated, soothing and mature intellectual. These are personality types bolstered with sophisticated marketing techniques, not policies, governing approaches or ideologies. But for those looking for some emotional attachment to a leader, rather than policies they believe are right, personality attachments are far more important. They're also far more potent. Loyalty grounded in admiration for character will inspire support regardless of policy, and will produce and sustain the fantasy that this is not a mere politician, but a person of deep importance to one's life who -- like a loved one or close friend or religious leader -- must be protected and defended at all costs.

Like the author of this column, I detest nothing more than a man that embraces a method that results in success. I mean, how can we possibly snark about him for not embracing a successful method if he embraces it?

"How do you feel about that liberals?"

Well, I feel the same way as I feel towards conservatives like u.

Obama played partisan politics with Iraq surge (in my opinion). Same goes with peolpe like you - remember, you guys wanted him to fail even before he took office. So, it's hard to take u guys seriously.

American, you have become worthless, make no sense and make no points worth responding to..
I have said many times I would rather have him do well..he has not in anyway or in anything he has done..so now it is very important he fails and we vote him out asap...

reasonable citizen..if he does something that helps us do well that is great..the problem is Bush did a surge because he wanted to win..Obama is doing one in a different way to make himself look good. He should have these guys killing every terrorist around like Bush did, so we can win like Bush did in Iraq.

"He should have these guys killing every terrorist around like Bush did..."

Ok, let me ask you this question. (I'm intentionally ignoring your other useless comments)

How do you define a 'terrorist'? I'm sure you have an answer since you want to kill 'every' terrorist.

american condescends then asks a stupid question. Here's a short list of terrorist types:

Al Queda, Taliban, Hamas, Hezb'allah, Timothy McVeigh types, gang-bangers, IRA, Al-aksa Martyrs Brigade, Ku Klux Klan, Fatah...

You could also say they are any cowardly murderers that will base themselves from within a civilian population, send their own children to murder by denonating bombs strapped to their persons, teach their people that other peoples are animals worthy of total annihilation...

Our government has a real idea of what a terrorist is and has for quite some time.

realism,

I don't know where you got this:

"Those who venerated Bush because he was a morally upright and strong evangelical-warrior-family man and revere Palin as a common-sense Christian hockey mom see Obama as an inspiring, kind, sophisticated, soothing and mature intellectual."

...but I don't know of anyone who would agree with this! Those who venerated Bush and revere Palin see Obama as an insipid, uncaring, psuedo-sophisticated, immature and whiney quasi-intellectual. It's more than obvious that the majority of the left falls for platitudes and empty rhetoric in supporting their chosen, but this is far from typical of the conservative who insists on results matching the promises. As proof, just look to the midterms of '06, when so many Republicans lost their seats in Congress. Look at the outrage that stems from the current spending bill from the House that is packed with pork from Republicans as well as Democrats, from whom we expect no better. I don't know where you got that italicized piece, but for conservatives I know, character is defined or proven by the policies proposed and supported by those who call themselves conservative. We vote accordingly. If the left did the same, Obama would never have won in '08.
