At it Again: Senator Brown-BACKBONELESS Opposes Bush Troop Surge

By Debbie Schlussel
Today’s Wall Street Journal “Washington Wire” reports that Senator Sam Brown-BACKBONELESS has decided to oppose the troop surge proposed by President Bush, because he feels it will help his candidacy for the White House:

McCain braces for fallout from troop surge that’s smaller than he favored. His Republican presidential rival Romney, hurt by social-issue flip-flops, takes cautious approach with low-key endorsement of more troops.
Dark-horse Brownback gambles by opposing surge, targeting the one-third of Republicans who disapprove of Bush’s policy.

First, Brown-BACKBONELESS endorses the absurd and DOA James A. Baker Iraq Study Group report on FOX News Sunday. Then, he decides he’ll support a far left judge who attended a lesbian wedding (some say she presided over it), and now he opposes our attempts to finally get things going our way in Iraq.


NOT a Conservative: GOP Prez Hopeful Sam Brown-BACKBONELESS

If this is a “conservative,” WHO THE HECK NEEDS LIBERALS?!
Wonder how it feels being to the left of even Carl Levin on this.

“If this is a conservative, WHO THE HECK NEEDS LIBERALS?!”
Exactly what the country said the last elections.

Some observations:
1 – Karl Rove is the president, not Bush, let’s face it.
2 – I don’t give a damn anymore about Iraq. Sending more troops or pulling them out, I don’t care. I have only one opinion that didn’t change and never will: America should not leave the Middle-East as long as we need OIL. Because, let’s be honest, it’s all about OIL. And Israel should get our help any time.
3 – There is no such thing as “Conservative-Republican.” There is liberal “Republican” and liberal “Democrat.” It’s one Party with two branches.
4 – True Conservatives have to form their own Party. The “Independent Conservative Party” should be its name as well as its core beliefs.
5 – If you feel betrayed by the Republican Party, DO something about it.
Change your voting registration to “Independent,” start controlling your vote, your fate, and the future of your nation.
The politicians make you think that you’re in charge, yet they are not telling you that they are fooling and lying to you by empty promises so you put them in power.
Power is all what they seek, and they are using YOU as their puppet and slave to achieve their goal.
Start voting for whom you feel is closer to your values and don’t let any Party control you.
You do have a choice, you do have power, you just didn’t think about it or you didn’t use it.
Remember, you can’t change things without DOING something about it.

Criticize Brownback for grandstanding. That is reasonable. But believing in a surge is silly. The thugs will just pop up in another town. How may surges will there be until we escalate to an additional 150,000 troops? Bush had his chance. What we need is a real commander-in-chief, not amateur night. But then again, we have not had one since George Washington. The rest were fortunate to have the nearly unlimited resources of the U.S. on their side. … and the beat goes on.

Dear Debbie:
Do you really think sending more troops into Iraq accomplishes anything? Please tell what that is, OK? There is no Iraqi patriotism (loyalty by Iraqi’s to a unified Iraq that they are willing to fight and die for). No, there is only Sunni’s, Shiites, and Kurds and they all hate each other, us and Israel–oh yes–and they and all want the power as they kill one another.
The only thing we can possibly accomplish being there now is to slow down Iran from taking over with the Shiite majority there–then the Sunnis will get the full revenge due them under Sadaam and G-d know’s what else. Brigitte Gabriel says Israel will need to refuel planes in Iraq on the way to bomb Iran–OK, got that– a reason to stay. The idea we can make this country into a democracy is a farce–I bought into it for far too long. Now if we would TAKE the oil from them to pay our costs, it wouldn’t be so bad–but we will never do that–wouldn’t make the UN and EU pols happy.
I detest Brownback from your last article, but as for this issue DS–you got some splainin to do. Why send in more troops?
