It's Baaack: Did You Hear What They Said?

That's right boys and girls, it's time for another exciting episode of "Did You Hear What They Said?"

For the uninitiated, this is a periodic series that shines light on what prominent people are saying about topics that effect us, the Little People. During the run-up to the last Presidential Election, I offered these quotes in order to inform people about who they were voting for. Say what you will about WAS the truth.

So now, without further's the first "Did You Hear What They Said?" for 2005:

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, from her rebuttal to the President's State of the Union Speech:

"Iraq still faces a violent and persistent insurgency," Pelosi said, "and is now a magnet for international terrorists."

Yo...Nancy, that is precisely our strategic objective -- keeping the warfront on their turf and not ours.

"We have never heard a clear plan from this administration for ending our presence in Iraq,"

Apparently, she didn't hear me :our country's commitment to the War on Terrorism is a prolonged one. It's a commitment driven by objectives, not day-planners; a commitment whose exit strategy is as follows: We will exit Iraq as soon as our strategic objectives have been met.

On a related subject, Pelosi claimed, "For three years, the President has failed to put together a comprehensive plan to protect America from terrorism." This, of course, would explain the dozens of terrorist attacks we Americans have endured here at home since 9/11.
Why can't you be more like your brother?
"President Bush should immediately announce his intention to negotiate a timetable for a drawdown of American combat forces with the new Iraqi send a stronger signal about our intentions and to ease the pervasive sense of occupation. America's goal should be to complete our military withdrawal as early as possible in 2006." --Ted Kennedy

Who was it that said, "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty." Oh yeah, that was JFK.
Make no mistake, are no Jack Kennedy.
Anti-Bush partisans -- both Democrats and Leftist ideologues -- understand that if the elections are seen as a triumph, they will be seen as Bush's triumph, and they cannot stomach it." --John Podhoretz

"So how about this: Turnout in the Kurdish north and Shi'ite south probably was higher than in the last U.S., British or Canadian elections. Legitimate enough for ya?" --Mark Steyn

"Since their candidate lost, many Democrats have allowed their hatred of George W. Bush to put them in the tragic position to be cheering for the same result in Iraq as Osama Bin Laden and al Zarqawi." --Joe Scarborough
"I won the youth vote. I won the independent vote. I won the moderate vote. If you take half the people at an Ohio State football game on Saturday afternoon and they were to have voted the other way, you and I would be having a discussion today about my State of the Union speech." --John Kerry

"Uh John....YOU LOST BY 3.5 MILLION VOTES!!!!!!!"--Robb Parker
" We need a new plan that sets fair and realistic goals for self-government in Iraq, and works with the Iraqi government on a specific timetable for the honorable homecoming of our forces." --Ted Kennedy (There IS an exit strategy: VICTORY)

There are countless anti-war websites out there counting the deaths of US soldiers in Iraq, but how come no one is counting the deaths of the enemy? While you ponder that, read this quote from Thomas Sowell:

"Since terrorists are pouring into Iraq in response to calls from international terrorist networks, the number of those who are killed is especially important, for these are people who will no longer be around to launch more attacks on American soil. Iraq has become a magnet for enemies of the United States, a place where they can be killed wholesale, thousands of miles away."

A friend of mine recently quoted Karl Marx "Religion is the opiate of the masses" Perhaps the following quote will show everyone the reason I don't let such comments slide by:

"God assumed from the beginning that the wise of the world would view Christians as fools...and He has not been disappointed. ... If I have brought any message today, it is this: Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to suffer the contempt of the sophisticated world." --U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
"Kerry did not, actually, offer a credible and coherent alternative,'' George Soros, January 29, 2005

"Religion is the only solid Base of morals and that Morals arethe only possible Support of free governments." --Gouverneur Morris

"But those who believe must be free to speak of and act on their belief, to apply moral teaching to public questions." --Ronald Reagan

"The election shows that most of Iraq is not in 'chaos' and that the insurgents remain an unpopular minority rejected by most Iraqis."--Wall Street Journal

"Kennedy was in a hurry to leave Iraq, seems he is always in a hurry to leave hot spots, didn’t he run from Chappaquiddick 36 years ago?"--Tedd Webb 2/2/05
"The truth in Iraq is rather that there is no political solution without a military victory and humiliation of the terrorists."--Victor Davis Hanson
And finally:

"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." --Ronald Reagan
