Bush Says Republican Loss is a Win for Terrorism

From Business Day:

WASHINGTON — A week before key midterm elections, US President George Bush was in Georgia yesterday to bolster his Republican Party’s chances even as the soaring US death toll in Iraq undercuts his claim to be winning the war.

A day after Bush charged in Texas, his home state, that “terrorists win and America loses” if opposition Democrats capture the November 7 legislative elections, the US October toll in Iraq jumped to 103, the fourth-highest monthly toll since the March 2003 invasion.

Bush said Democrats had no plan on how to win the Iraq battle.

But polls predicted Democrats would overcome the heightened rhetoric and recapture control of the house of representatives after 12 years, and possibly the senate, which could hobble the Bush administration’s last two years.

Republicans, however, have the upper hand in organising supporters and may yet win the day with a strong anti-Democrat rallying cry.


  1. “Bush said Democrats had no plan on how to win the Iraq battle.”

    wow… I’m speechless… as if the “terrorists” in Iraq are having a hard time coping with the super effective terrorist stopping bush war machine… he’s done nothing but shoot their enrolment through the roof… Un-f’ing-believable..

    I’m sure you’ve read this conversation between Gustave Gilbert and Hermann Goering during the nuremburg trials:

    “Why, of course, the people don’t want war,” Goering shrugged. “Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.”

    “There is one difference,” I pointed out. “In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.”

    “Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

    I’m glad GW feels so free to throw my little brother out there as meat dodging strangers bullets… to stave off the wolves he fathered…

    i’m gonna go puke.

    -send republicans to war.

  2. “Bush said Democrats had no plan on how to win the Iraq battle.”

    So, monkey-boy… when you gonna pull that ‘plan to win’ out of your ass? It’s only been, what, three and a half years?

  3. There’s little evidence that the administration has a plan to win, much less get us out of there before every American soldier and Iraqi civilian is dead. But let’s extend them the benefit of the doubt and assume they do have a plan. Clearly it’s not working, and it’s time for a new course of action.

  4. im sick of this political bitchfest i see on the news. neither party has my vote. all they say is some world-class mumbo, and second-class jumbo.
