Baker tries to toss in another Life Preserver

Last night on Hardball, Chris Matthews had James Baker on and they talked about the Iraq Study Group, or whatever the hell it is that he’s heading up with Lee Hamilton. This group is trying to figure out how to stop the blood from running so fast and furious in Iraq.

It sounded to me like a crock of fecal matter. Baker said the terrorist want to destabilize Iraq so they can establish a terrorist stronghold there. Sound familiar? That sounds just like a reading of one of bush’s speeches.

When Chris mentioned the number of Iraqis who have been killed in this war, Baker dismissed the latest report of over 600 thousand as the results of a bad study and then referenced what bush said in one of his recent speeches about the subject, as though what bush said was gold.

Seems to me we are hearing the same old tired lies but from a new face. I’m beginning to think that this whole thing with Baker is nothing more than a mission to save george bush’s ass. When the bush family is in trouble who do they call? Yes, the same person they called in 2000 when they needed the recounts in Florida to be stopped and election to be decided in bush’s favor.

So Baker helped Bush Sr. get his idiot son in the white house and now he has been called upon to save that same son’s political ass and name.

Good luck with that Mr. Baker, but I think you are way too late.

That little attachment on Fred’s collar is an ID container. If you unscrew it you will find inside a tiny scroll of paper. On that little piece of paper is his address and a promise of a reward if he is found and returned to the Pop home. Not as mysterious as we thought, huh?

"a crock of fecal matter"... Ah, monkey crap, got ya. So have you checked the ID container to see if Fred hasn't changed the address to show he belongs at a Hookers? LOL

I have just realized that the Bushites don't believe the death figures because to them "those" people don't count - just like in Katrina. They didn't act because the tragedies that befall "those" people don't count. They are totally blind to "those" people. Our leaders are stupid and blind and deaf.

Cool collar.

Even Baker can't bail out Dubya this time. Not going to happen. I wonder how many dead will satisfy them? Seriously, what is the magical number of deaths that is the stopping point with them? How do they sleep at night?
Cool contraption on kitty's neck. I could use one myself some days.

Not on this subject, but I wanted to say thank you for the kind comments on my site regarding my daughter. I apologize for the delay, but between the situation and now blogger acting less than civil, it was delayed.

The kind words went a long way. A devoted reader I am....

Did you use a tiny type writer for Fred's note ? Sorry ...... I just like the phrase Tiny Type Writer.

Baker has sure been making the rounds to promote his book.

I wonder if Murtha, Kerry, and Feingold will get any credit for having the vision and clear sense of where the war effort was going before they had to bring in Baker to bat clean-up.

Baker has been called in to rearrange the deck chairs on this sinking ship. They're trying to find some way to spin a "change of course" to look like Bush's idea.
Baker won’t criticize Bush no matter what has happened. He’s there to protect the Bush legacy, way too late for that.

I can't wait to see how they spin the inevitable exit strategy so that they avoid their own "cut and run" label. It would be entertaining if it weren't so tragic.

I was having a conversation with a "moderate" the other day and he said "you think GW is the devil" with a laugh. I said "he is worse than the devil." He then said "To me the devil is someone like Hitler who engaged in mass genocide". I asked "What do you call the murder of 655,000 Iraqis?" He had nothing to say to that, and just stood there completely silent....thinking, I hope.

I agree with Mary. "Those" people mean nothing to Bu$hCo. That's why they don't even bother to count their deaths.

@ Mary and Pam

You're absolutely right about "those people". Anecdote:

I was protesting the presence of Karl Rove in my fine city about a week or so ago. He was here in support of our local Republican candidates doing a fund raiser thing.

My fellow protesters and I were heckling the attendees, and one of the things I was saying (okay, shouting) was "Torture is not a Christian value!" This jewel bedecked elderly woman walked up to me and said, not even kidding, she said, "Oh don't you know, were not torturing *our* soldiers, just the Iraqi's." This woman was totally serious.

The Iraqi population are nothing but dirty heathens to the Republican party members. 655,000 deaths is completely acceptable to them.

If Mr. PoP felt bad about the loss of the last two minutes and came away with a win, you can only feel for die-hard Cardinals fans as they found another way to lose again last night. They lost it in the last two minutes or so -- too bad they had to play 60 minutes instead of the 58 minutes Mr. PoP watched his team. I looked for Minstrel Boy on tv but didn't see him -- or the blonde, for that matter. What I did see was a complete collapse of a professional football team, a team that's only had one winning season in the umpteen years they've been in PHX.

Now, back to today's thread --

I can't understand what was wrong with my brain, when for a split second I actually thought Baker might tell the truth about Iraq. Didn't I read somewhere that he was saying that victory was impossible? He's a shill for the Bush's always has been always will be. I've hated him for so long, I can't even look at his smarmy, stupid, lying face.

Maybe Baker can knock the Boyking off his high horse since everybody knows he's called in to clean up the mess. (or steal elections)

It's a shame it comes at the expense of 650,000 innocent people simply trying to live a normal life.

You've got to be kidding me. These people are like the people who deny that the holocaust ever happened.

Seriously folks, this November we can and should do better!

I watched that program yesterday...he did a fine dance around the issues. I also read online last night that he and Hamilton aren't going to release any information about the war until after the election. Oh...they've got it all ready right now...but it won't get out until shortly after the election. What kind of impression does THAT give I wonder? Whores!

I think George (crack boy) Bush should have the same ID collar that Fred does. He hasn't got a clue who he is, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. He's still acting like a spoiled, rich, fratt boy.

He is a spoiled little rich kid that behaves as if the world is his little toy. It will take us years to recover from the damage he's caused. Why must he scream like a child every single time he addresses the media and public?

Having to watch or listen to him can make me physically sick, that I do know.

Baker is throwing life preservers, trying to keep cement-heads above water.

Ain't gonna work. The fearmongering has pretty much played itself out, and they are so far behind in some venues even Diebold can't save them.
