I was trying to decide who should get the GMWAS (Gag Me With a Spoon) award and it ended up being a tie between 3 people so they will all receive the honor. I am very disheartened at these 3 men for how they are dishonoring our troops and our country. Protesting and voicing opposition is one thing but I feel that all 3 of these men have crossed the line into "treasonous" waters. They are voicing reckless statements for all the world to hear and trying to create a "Vietnam quagmire" out of a war that has made a lot of progress. Bloviating Zeppelin wrote a good post on our successes over there. Please take the time to read it. Anyway, onto the awards.
The first recipient has been awarded the moonbat award by Bloviating Zeppelin twice. It is Congressman John P. "Jack" Murtha. He is the one who made the infamous call to pull the troops of out Iraq in 6 months time. And he continues to blather on trying to cash in on his 15 minutes of fame. Zeppelin has called him a "Chamberlain" and I couldn't think of a better way to describe him. Again, I picture the scary looking guy from Braveheart who believes in compromise.
The second recipient is someone Michael Reagan wants to have hung. Howard Dean had the audacity to say that we won't win in Iraq. I just can't put into words how discouraging this must be for our brave fighting men and women to hear. And how scary for Iraqis to hear this and have the fear that we will abandon them.
The third recipient is a man I can't believe was ever considered presidential by anyone. Our beloved John Kerry wants the world to believe that our soldiers are terrorists. I just can't fathom how anyone can say this about their troops and their own country. Do these men relish in the destruction and disheartenment of their own fellow Americans? It just makes me really sad and discouraged that these men would stoop to these levels just to score political points.
It will be very interesting to see how history will view these men. I predict that 20 years from now we will see Bush in the same way that we now view Reagan. Reagan ended the cold war while the democrats howled and screamed that it could never be done. I think we will see many successes from Bush's War on Terror and we will admire him for sticking to what he knew was right while the democrats howled and screamed that it couldn't be done.
