Bush's Weekly Radio Address (wrap up of 2005)

from DefenseLink:




Bush: Progress Toward Freer, More Peaceful World Made in 2005


WASHINGTON, Dec. 31, 2005 – "This has been a year of strong progress toward a freer, more peaceful world and a more prosperous America", President George W. Bush said in his weekly radio address today.


"This year we watched the Iraqi people defy the terrorists and suicide bombers and hold three successful elections, voting to choose the only constitutional, democratic government in the Arab world," Bush said." We also saw the people of Afghanistan elect a democratic parliament in a nation that only a few years ago was ruled by the Taliban.


"These are amazing achievements in the history of liberty," Bush said. "As freedom and democracy take hold in a troubled region, we are making the American people safer here at home and laying the foundation of peace for future generations."


Bush emphasized that the U.S. has a vital interest in the success of a free Iraq. In the year ahead, he said, the United States will continue to pursue a comprehensive strategy for victory that includes security, political and economic elements.


He said the coalition is staying on the offense, finding and clearing the enemy out of Iraqi cities, towns and villages. More control is being transferred to Iraqi units, and the U.S. is building up the Iraqi security forces so they can increasingly lead the fight to secure their country.


"We are helping Iraqis build the political institutions of an inclusive, unified and lasting democracy," the president said. "And, our coalition is overcoming earlier setbacks and moving forward with a reconstruction plan to rebuild Iraq's economy and infrastructure.


"As we help Iraq build a peaceful and stable democracy, the United States will gain an ally in the war on terror, inspire reformers across the Middle East, and make the American people more secure," Bush said.

NSA Leaks To Be Investigated..

..by the Department of Justice.



by Breitbart:

WASHINGTON - The Justice Department has opened an investigation into the leak of classified information about President Bush's secret domestic spying program, Justice officials said Friday. The officials, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, said the inquiry will focus on disclosures to The New York Times about warrantless surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.


The Times revealed the existence of the program two weeks ago in a front-page story that acknowledged the news had been withheld from publication for a year, partly at the request of the administration and partly because the newspaper wanted more time to confirm various aspects of the program.

It's about damn time. It's pathetic that the left continue to bitch about this issue yet none of them have spoke out about the actual 'source' that leaked this information out. That should be more important and am glad that there will be an investigation on this.

Survey says...

Most Americans back Bush on 'eavesdropping'.


by WorldNetDaily:



Most Americans back Bush-ordered wiretaps
Believe NSA should eavesdrop on suspects' calls without warrants

____________

A new survey found nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the National Security Agency should monitor communications between terrorist suspects overseas and contacts inside the U.S.

According to Scott Rasmussen of Rasmussen Reports, 64 percent of respondents said the super-secret NSA should be allowed to intercept telephone conversations between terrorism suspects in other countries and people living in the United States. Just 23 percent disagreed, the survey found.

Meanwhile, 68 percent of those surveyed said they are following news reports about the NSA somewhat or very closely.

Oh, no, but according to the looney left most Americans are outraged that this is happening and that it's not helping but more hurting our civil liberties. Face it libs, THIS HAS BEEN HELPING IN PROTECTING YOU AND ME FOR OVER 4 YEARS NOW..SO BITCHING ABOUT THIS IS JUST MAKING YOU LOOK MORE LIKE THE BUNCH OF COWARDS AND DEFEATISTS YOU ARE. Just let the president do his job in continuing to protect this country from terrorists.

PATRIOT ACT EXTENDED

GOOD.. Democrats (and some Republicans) didn't want to look like dumbasses this time, though it's sad that deep down they REALLY didn't want this extended even knowing that it has protected us for the past 4 years already.

from Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate leaders reached a bipartisan agreement on Wednesday to extend for six months key provisions of the anti-terrorism USA Patriot Act set to expire in 10 days.

The accord, to be voted on later on Wednesday, would provide time for Congress to try to resolve differences over safeguards for civil liberties before making most of the provisions the Bush administration deems necessary for its war on terror permanent.

Democrats and Republicans who helped negotiate the deal voiced confidence that the White House and House of Representatives would give needed approvals.

Initially passed after the September 11, 2001, attacks, the Patriot Act expanded the authority of the federal government to conduct secret searches, obtain private records, intercept telephone calls and take other action in the effort to track down suspected terrorists.

Earlier on Wednesday, 52 of the 100 senators, including eight Republicans, signed a letter in support of a Democratic-led bid to extend expiring provisions for just three months to provide time to resolve differences.

Senate leaders, who had earlier opposed any such short-term deal, agreed to the six-month extension following talks during much of the day.

The battle has been complicated by the recent disclosure that shortly after the September 11 attacks Bush authorized spying on communications by Americans with suspected terrorist ties without a warrant.

Bush brushed aside criticism of his aggressive tactics and, earlier on Wednesday, accused Senate Democrats of putting the United States at risk by blocking renewal of the Patriot Act.

Bush made no mention of the four senators in his Republican Party -- Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, Larry Craig of Idaho, John Sununu of New Hampshire and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska -- who joined most Democrats last week to block the bill with a procedural hurdle.

Congressman wants Bush impeached..

from WorldNetDaily by accessnorthga


Congressman calls for Bush impeachment
The Associated Press - ATLANTA

U.S. Rep. John Lewis said Monday in a radio interview that President Bush should be impeached if he broke the law in authorizing spying on Americans.

The Democratic senator from Georgia told WAOK-AM he would sign a bill of impeachment if one was drawn up and that the House of Representatives should consider such a move. Lewis is among several Democrats who have voiced discontent with Sunday night's television speech, where Bush asked Americans to continue to support the Iraq War. Lewis is the first major House figure to suggest impeaching Bush.

Its a very serious charge, but he violated the law," said Lewis, a former civil rights leader. "The president should abide by the law. He deliberately, systematically violated the law. He is not King, he is president."


ummm, what? Ok, so he wants Bush impeached cause of the wire tapping issue, but then the next thing mentioned is that the reason he wants him impeached is cause he's discontent that Bush stated in his GREAT speech on Sunday night for the American people to keep supporting the War.


You can never get a straight reason from these Dumbocrats. They just flat out HATE Bush and want everything to go wrong for him and this country for their benefit. It's pathetic.

Bush's Speech

I hope everyone was watching this tonight because the speech was well said, and to me was his best speech yet.

photo from FNC



quotes:


"In all three aspects of our strategy -- security, democracy, and reconstruction -- we have learned from our experiences, and fixed what has not worked. We will continue to listen to honest criticism, and make every change that will help us complete the mission. Yet there is a difference between honest critics who recognize what is wrong, and defeatists who refuse to see that anything is right."




Dumbocrats blood must be boiling after that...and this too:



"Defeatism may have its partisan uses, but it is not justified by the facts. For every scene of destruction in Iraq, there are more scenes of rebuilding and hope. For every life lost, there are countless more lives reclaimed. And for every terrorist working to stop freedom in Iraq, there are many more Iraqis and Americans working to defeat them. My fellow citizens: Not only can we win the war in Iraq, we are winning the war in Iraq."




Win?? how dare he say we can win this war..../sarc


"I also want to speak to those of you who did not support my decision to send troops to Iraq: I have heard your disagreement, and I know how deeply it is felt. Yet now there are only two options before our country -- victory or defeat. And the need for victory is larger than any president or political party, because the security of our people is in the balance. I don't expect you to support everything I do, but tonight I have a request: Do not give in to despair, and do not give up on this fight for freedom."




It's that simple ..all the anti anti people need to stop bitching about shit that's been explained over and over again and start supporting our troops and the effort to be victorious against these fucks that want nothing more but to kill us all.



The entire speech was good. What hit me most was when he mentioned the families of the deployed soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan and around the world during the holidays. I too know what it's like to have a loved one deployed because my sister is over there right now sacrificing herself for this great country and the world. You know, many people say that Bush isn't a good communicator or that he's dumb, but to me he is a good communicator and doesn't fake it when he talks. I mean sure he may have his moments, but like the speech today and many others, he shows that he really cares as a president and as a person for this country and it's citizens. He shows compassion for the families who have loved ones over seas, and the troops who are every day sacrificing themselves for us to protect our freedoms and help others to have freedom.


That's how a president is suppose to be at a time of war.

Millions of Iraqi's voted..

from Yahoo News



So many Sunni Arabs voted that ballots ran out in some places. The strong participation by Sunnis, the backbone of the insurgency, bolstered U.S. hopes that the election could produce a broad-based government capable of ending the dailysuicide attacks and other violence that have ravaged thecountry since the fall of Saddam Hussein'.


That is HUGE.


Up to 11 million of the nation's 15 million registered voters took part, election officials estimated, which would put overall turnout at more than 70 percent.


Amazing. This is what it's all about exercising your right to vote, seeing all the Iraqi's with the purple fingers and sharing their views knowing that no one can hurt them anymore due to what they say or what they do...it's really something to be proud of and like I've said, NEVER forget our military for they are the one's who made this possible and ofcourse the Iraqi people who risked themselves to go out and vote for a chance at freedom.

Clemency DENIED..

GOOD.

Pomeroy says...

"SHUT UP DEAN"...



from the BismarckTribune:


WASHINGTON - North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy is accusing Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean of overstepping his bounds, saying the former presidential candidate should not give up on the war in Iraq.

On Monday, Dean likened the war in Iraq to Vietnam and said, "The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong."

"My words to Howard Dean are simple - shut up," Pomeroy told WDAY Radio in North Dakota on Thursday.

Pomeroy later told the Associated Press that he is tired "of the overblown rhetoric on both sides."

"We have young men and women with their lives on the line," he added. "The debate has fallen far short of what they deserve."

FINALLY..THANK YOU MR. POMEROY

Crazy Dean


Dean knows damn well he meant what he said about the War..


Fox News:

YEEHAAAAAAAAA CRAZY DEAN!
WASHINGTON — Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean said Thursday his assertion that the United States cannot win the war in Iraq was reported "a little out of context," saying Democrats believe a new U.S. strategy is needed to succeed there.

Seeking to clarify a statement in a Texas radio interview that Republicans harshly assailed and some Democrats questioned, Dean said, "They kind of cherry-picked that one the same way the president cherry-picked the intelligence going into Iraq."
Dean was questioned on CNN about an interview he gave Monday to radio station WOAI in San Antonio. "The idea that we're going to win this war is an idea that unfortunately is just plain wrong," the former Vermont governor and unsuccessful 2004 presidential candidate said.

His Republican counterpart, Ken Mehlman, called Dean's prediction "outrageous" and said it "sends the wrong message to our troops, the enemy, and the Iraqi people just 10 days before historic elections."

On Thursday, Dean stressed at several junctures in the interview that Democrats support U.S. troops struggling to secure Iraq. He seemed to be striving to counter charges that statements by some Democrats suggesting a pullout are having the effect of undermining U.S. servicemen and women.

yup, Crazy Dean the idiot with nothing but bullshit to say.

Murtha at it AGAIN..

Ofcourse what else do you expect from the pathetic left?? Bush comes out with a awesome speech and the Democrats come out whining and bitching again...it never ends.


found at WorldNetDaily by the AP:


LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - Most U.S. troops will leave Iraq within a year because the Army is "broken, worn out" and "living hand to mouth," Rep. John Murtha told a civic group.

Two weeks ago, Murtha created a storm of comment when he called for U.S. troops to leave Iraq now. The Democratic congressman spoke to a group of community and business leaders in Latrobe on Wednesday, the same day President Bush said troops would be withdrawn when they've achieved victory, not under an artificial deadline set by politicians.

Murtha predicted most troops will be out of Iraq within a year.

"I predict he'll make it look like we're staying the course," Murtha said, referring to Bush. "Staying the course is not a policy."

Murtha, 73, the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations defense subcommittee, expressed pessimism about Iraq's stability and said the Iraqis know who the insurgents are, but don't always share that information with U.S. troops. He said a civil war is likely because of ongoing factionalism among Sunni Arabs, and Kurds and Shiites.

He also said he was wrong to vote to support the war.

"I admit I made a mistake when I voted for war," Murtha said. "I'm looking at the future of the United States military."

Murtha, a decorated Vietnam war veteran, said the Pennsylvania National Guard is "stretched so thin" that it won't be able to send fully equipped units to Iraq next year. Murtha predicted it will cost $50 billion to upgrade military equipment nationwide, but says the federal government is already reducing future purchases to save money.

Murtha, who represents a western Pennsylvania district that includes Latrobe, was first elected to Congress in 1974.

Lt. Col. Chris Cleaver, spokesman for the Pennsylvania National Guard at Fort Indiantown Gap, said "there are some deployment concerns."

Cleaver said some guard units had to leave equipment in Iraq when they returned to the United States, which could cause training problems here.

But Cleaver also said most of the 2,100 Guard troops now deployed with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team can't be sent back to Iraq for a second tour of duty anyway, because of regulations that limit redeployment.



huh?? so now the Army is broken?? such bullshit. I love this quote, though where he said "staying course is not a policy" basically he means the CUT AND RUN strategy. Yea, continueing to undermine our men and women in a time of WAR really helps the cause of defeating these crazy fuckers that want nothing more then to kill our soldiers and innocent Iraqis. GOOD PLAN LIBS.
