David Feherty, CBS Sports commentator and former professional golfer, raised the hackles of leftwing moonbats with the following comment in a piece he wrote for D Magazine:
From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. Soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there’s a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death.
I’ve never met a Soldier who didn’t love this president (Bush) and this country, and I’ve met a bunch of them, at home and abroad, in hospitals and in theater. At Walter Reed, Bethesda Naval Medical Center, and the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, I have visited dozens of patients, and I always ask of them before I leave: “What do you want to do when you get out?” No matter how broken or burned, or how many limbs they are missing, they give only one answer: “I want to go back. I want to rejoin my team, to finish our mission.” They are rightfully proud of what they have done and want nothing more than to be with their brothers and sisters in arms, because they know the consequences if their job is left unfinished. Right here on American soil, we will end up with unqualified people having to do the job they have been doing over there so incredibly well, and with such extraordinary compassion. The fact is, Americans in America have been safe since 9/11, almost the whole length of G2’s term as president, and for that we should be thankful.
Feherty isn’t too far off the mark. I’d definitely bitch-slap them at the very least. Pelosi, Reid, and Obama are some of the most destructive officials we’ve ever had with respect to national security and the economy.
Cases in point:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said twice Sunday that Iraq “is a failure,” adding that President Bush’s troop surge has “not produced the desired effect.”
“The purpose of the surge was to create a secure time for the government of Iraq to make the political change to bring reconciliation to Iraq,” Pelosi said on CNN’s “Late Edition.” “They have not done that.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warned Army Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker on Thursday not to “put a shine on recent events” in Iraq when they testify before Congress next week.
“I hope we don’t hear any glorification of what happened in Basra,” said Pelosi, referring to a recent military offensive against Shiite militants in the city led by the Iraqi government and supported by U.S. forces.
Harry “white flag” Reid made the following announcement on 19 April 2007:
I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week,” Reid said, on the same day US President George W. Bush was giving a speech at an Ohio town hall meeting defending the war on terror.
Obama went on an Apology Tour; ingratiating himself (on our behalf) to the world’s malefactors and the Eurotrash. He bowed to the Saudi king, kissed Hugo’s ass, deferred reaction to the Iranian and North Korean missile launches to the U.N., sat through Daniel Ortega’s anti-American diatribe, and during the campaign, accused American troops of doing little more than ‘air-raiding villages and killing children’.
Democrats have tried everything in their power to undermine the war efforts, denigrate American troops, evicerate national security, and serve as an Al Qaeda propaganda wing.
I’d save Bin Laden for last.
