Now that al-Maliki wants us out, What is the Republican Party’s position on troop withdrawal?

"Now you listen to me, Al (Maliki). I'm the Decider and I decide what's best for you, for me, for all."

"Now you listen to me, Al (Maliki). I'm the Decider and I decide what's best for you, for me, for all."

Should we stay or should we go? Since it appears that the Iraqis are “standing up”, isn’t it time for us to “stand down”? Oh no, my mistake. That was LAST election’s RNC talking point. I’ll wager that the republican party line on the Sunday morning talk shows goes a little something like this…”So much has changed since the stand up/stand down mantra was introduced. The Iraqis don’t realize the danger they’re in. Only Bush/Cheney/McCain can protect them. If we withdraw from Iraq and Obama is elected (gasp!), our children will be raised in an Arabic-speaking U.S.A and Israel will be wiped off the map”.

The repubber fear machine will be full throttle in no time now- guaranteed.



  1. Let me beat Swinehart to the punch here. THE ABOVE CAPTION IS NOT AN ACTUAL QUOTE ATTRIBUTABLE TO GEORGE W. BUSH. (Though it wouldn’t surprise me if he said such a thing).

  2. Now that Maliki said he was misquoted and now that it ws shown that Dep Spiegel left out part of his actual quote, what will the position of the left be?

    How silly, it has always been defeat.

  3. Yeah, because I’m sure that no pressure was applied on al-Maliki to cry “misquote” by Bush & Co. after his words hit the airwaves. Was the convo between Der Spiegel and al-Maliki recorded? I’d sure like to have a listen.

    Defeat? I was under the impression that victory had already been achieved in Iraq. Coulda sworn I saw BigDweeb’s man-crush GW Bush catch a ride in a fighter jet to an aircraft carrier where he then delivered a victory speech under a banner reading “Mission Accomplished”.

  4. Der Spiegel is sticking to its story…

    BigDork needs no evidence either way to reach his conclusion. If it’s good enough for Bush & Co., it’s good enough for him. Weak.
