Bush in Baghdad

Tuesday, June 13, 2006
Good to see you said Maliki.

Thanks for having me said George Bush.

This surprise visit to Iraq is a signal from Bush to his enemies, both domestic and foreign, that he does not intend to cut and run. The new man in Iraq promises an iron fist when dealing with lawlessness.

The Captain has a good post up on the president's trip to Iraq.

This war has afforded the American media with a number of opportunities to demonstrate their firm conviction that they are an objective system designed to discover and report the truth. Instead, they have repeatedly shown in ways small and large that they allow their personal biases to flow into their news reporting, underscoring the widespread knowledge that they ceased being objective decades ago.

He might have added that they joined "The Insurgency" decades ago. They ceased being objective to make room for their subjective support of their paymasters. I don't expect to live long enough to see the money followed but the behavior of the seditionist MSM is not sufficiently explained by mere "personal biases". There's cold, bloody cash at work.

I like to think it is just the feel good types enjoying another fling. There is a certain bitter joy in being a biased a*hole and journalists aren't going to pass it up.

There may be some, but I think for the majority it's existential. Their world, and their power over it, has slipped away.

They formed their current narrative on the eve of the Iraq war and fleshed it out when no WMD stockpiles were found.

And that's all they wrote. Literally.

As for Bush in Baghdad? Yahooooooo! Bless him!

I loved the HUGE grin on Maliki's face when they met!

And Chris Matthews and Joe Biden are STILL denying that Iraq has anything to do with the WoT!

Meanwhile AlQaida is promising to continue its war against Shia and Crusaders. Biden is man whose time has passed.

Agreed. Is money a factor? Of course, but it’s not everything. These are individuals who see their cultural milieu becoming increasingly irrelevant. Their world is turning upside down. Only other elitist Democrats take them halfway seriously. The Republicans, however, win most of the elections---and have the odds in their favor for the foreseeable future. I hate to sound so Hegelian (I am giving in to shameful temptation), but these folks are on the wrong side of history.
