Good morning

From Chicago Sun-Times Quick Takes today:

Taking cover

*President Bush responding to criticism of Iraq policy: "These baseless attacks send the wrong message to our troops."

*Vice President Dick Cheney responding to criticism of Iraq policy: "The saddest part is that our people in uniform have been subjected to these cynical and pernicious falsehoods day in and day out."

*Republican National Committee ad responding to criticism of Iraq policy: "Our Country Is At War. Our Soldiers Are Watching."

It is a wonder how our troops can accomplish anything, distracted as they are with all the politicians running to hide behind them.

Cynical and pernicious huh? If anyone should know ...

    Granny, thanks for visiting my blog. I like all of yours!

    Why am I having a "deja vu all over again"? God (if you exist) - help us now!

    I don't know what it will take out there - 500 casualties maybe, maybe 500,000. It's the aughts that scare me.
    Lyndon B. Johnson


    If, when the chips are down, the world's most powerful nation, the United States of America, acts like a pitiful, helpless giant, the forces of totalitarianism and anarchy will threaten free nations and free institutions throughout the world.
    Author: Richard M. Nixon

    It's silly talking about how many years we will have to spend in the jungles of Vietnam when we could pave the whole country and put parking stripes on it and still be home by Christmas.
    Ronald Reagan

    Hi Gary - glad you're here. Worried and I are no longer talking to ourselves.
