A Commenter Gem..

Every once in a while while surfing through comments on other blogs I find a comment that is so perfect, I have to post it. I found this one while reading a blog(Beltway Confidential) at the Houston Chronicle regarding the President's speech yesterday about the war:

Would you like a soldiers Mother's point of view?

Give the Commander in Chief the authority -then criticize when he uses it.

When interrogation methods are successful - find isolated examples of bad behavior and try to shut down the operation.

When wiretapping policies show success - criticize and try to shut the policies down.

Give General Patraeus unanimous consent - then criticize his plan and personally attack him.

Write legislation that demands the White House give a report on the surge progress - then imply the White House shouldn't give the report.

Write legislation that demands the White House give the report in September - then imply it's political timing.

When the military surge shows progress - switch criticisms to the political goals.With the focus on the political goals - begin to personally attack the elected Iraqi Government.

I'm the proud Mother of Marine 2nd Lt. James T. Collins of the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division II, Marine Expeditionary Force out of Camp Lejeune North Carolina who is currently in Iraq, and I think our service men and women are doing a damn good job considering half of our Government has been fighting against them from the beginning.
