Losers

I just googled impeach George Bush

and there were 268,000 hits.

This video says it well. (scroll down to Downing Street)

Tomorrow, Representative Conyers will hold his first hearings

on the Downing Street Memos.

but it will not be in the Capitol.

This is from afterdowningstreet.org

"On Thursday June 16, 2005, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Wasserman Room at 430 S Capitol St. SE, Washington, D.C., Rep. John Conyers, Jr., Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, and other Congress Members will hold a hearing on the Downing Street Minutes and related evidence of efforts to cook the books on pre-war intelligence.

The hearings are being held at the Democratic National Committee because the Republicans controlling the House Judiciary Committee refused to permit the ranking Democratic Member to use a room on the Hill.

Later on the same day at 5:00 p.m. ET in Lafayette Square Park, in front of the White House, a large rally will support Congressman Conyers who plans to deliver to the White House a letter addressed to President Bush and signed by over 500,000 Americans and at least 94 Congress Members. The letter asks the President to respond to questions raised by the Downing Street Minutes."

And there is this piece in the NY Times

"George W. Bush is in no danger of being ranked among the nation's pre-eminent commanders in chief. Not only has he been unable thus far to win the war in Iraq, but on his watch significant sectors of the proud U.S. military have been rapidly deteriorating.

The Army reported on Friday that it had fallen short of its recruitment goals for a fourth consecutive month. The Marines managed to meet their recruitment target for May, but that was their first successful month this year. Scrambling to fill its ranks, the Army is signing up more high school dropouts and lower-scoring applicants.

With the war in Iraq going badly and allegations of abuse by military personnel widespread, young men and women are increasingly deciding that there's no upside to a career choice in which the most important skills might be ducking bullets and dodging roadside bombs.

The primary reason the U.S. went to an all-volunteer military in 1973 was to ensure that those who did not want to fight wouldn't have to. That option is now being overwhelmingly exercised, discretion being the clear choice over valor. Young people and their parents alike are turning their backs on the military in droves."

Now, get this straight.

This Country, this Republican Government (go to Rep. Jones)

will never impeach or punish a leader who lies.

It will not impeach an administration for its dissembling.

It will impeach a loser.

We hate losers.

We hate leaders who make us feel like losers.

We invaded Iraq to win.

Not lose.

Losers lose big.

No matter how they did last season.

Even the media will cover it,

They love to heap loss on losers.

They know what sells.

So I guess you point is what? Lose the war, lose the lock on the country? If the Rs understand that, it seems we will see a change in the war policy.

That's my read. Rep Jones (R) will be offering a pull out bill this week. This is the same man who made french fries freedom fries.

There are plenty of Rs who do not like the direction the war has taken.

If the war is not headed in the right direction soon, the political winds will shift abruptly.

This post leaves me very unsettled somehow. Are we to believe that this nations no longer has morals? that winning and losing is everything?

I, like Jefferson, fear for this country if that is the truth.

Actually, I like this post. It speaks the truth. And it points the way. This is pretty powerful shaping. OZ is "right on" here.
