Guess Who…

August 13, 2005

Guess who said the following:

  1. "You can support the troops but not the
  2. "Well, I just think it’s a bad idea. What’s
    going to happen is they’re going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20
  3. "Explain to the mothers and fathers of
    American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter
    have to give up their life?"
  4. "[The] President . . . is once again
    releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined
    objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this
    operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation’s armed forces about
    how long they will be away from home."
  5. "If we are going to commit American troops,
    we must be certain the y have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit
  6. "I cannot support a failed foreign policy.
    History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This
    administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this
    mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month
    later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of
    engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of
    victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear
    funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our over-extended military.
    There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake.
    There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and
    there still is no plan today"
  7. "Victory means exit strategy, and it’s
    important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is."

    1 – Rep. Tom Delay (R-TX)
    2 – Joe Scarborough
    3 – Sean Hannity
    4 – Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)
    5 – Karen Hughes
    6 – Rep. Tom Delay (R-TX)
    7 – Gov. George W. Bush

    All of these quotes are in connection to military actions that took place during the Clinton administration.

    The hypocrisy just…astounds me.

    Wow, good stuff. It’s funny how historical quotes can be moved throughout history without knowing the context in which they are said. Much like Churchill’s comments about Hitler.

    Well done, Matt.

    Might I possibly have a copy of this in Word so that I can refrain from even speaking to CERTAIN PEOPLE and just hand them this and walk away?? 😉
