Blame Americans First

It must be drinking Red Bull because it's taken wings. I have mentioned this before and it is getting more and more widely distributed. We messed up the Iraq war because Americans wouldn't let Bush do what he wanted. From Digby:

I'm sorry that these starry-eyed neocons who looked at George Bush and saw a genius are disappointed that the rest of the country didn't support their vision. They were given more of a chance to prove themselves than dreamers and fools usually are --- and they failed on a grand scale. This is what the Bushites deserve and what they should expect for ram-rodding through a war without real public support and then screwing it up royally. The families of all these dead and wounded soldiers, unfortunately, didn't deserve this and neither did the poor Iraqis who didn't know they were going to be guinea pigs in a 7th grade neocon thought experiment based on cartoons and psycho-babble. Blaming the American people is an excellent political strategy, however, and I hope these conservatives keep it up. There's nothing that betrayed voters like more than to be called stupid, cowardly and traitorous. (I know I've been enjoying it for the last couple of decades.) I'm sure all those independents and moderates who now see through Bush and the Republicans are going to love it too. It really clarifies your thinking.

They got everything they asked for. Invasive laws, money and troops. When fighting the war at home is demonizing those who disagree, ignoring prudence and other schools of thought as wacky , asking for the removal of habeus corpus and reasonable privacy when it comes to government intrusion on American citizens(or your all gonna die!), and declaring yourself the decider regardless, it is hard to imagine you could maintain support of a true democracy for even as long as he did. They are in emergency pass the buck mode. Something tells me it won't work this time.

Just wait til it affects them on a personal level -- something that hits home.

Then they'll be whining like babies (or should I say the piglets), and bitching like someone going thru menopause.

I think they did get what they deserved. Most of the American public allowed themselves to be blindsighted and brainwashed, not even thinking to use their own brains.

Oh wait, what brains...

We'll see. I'm not completely convinced yet that they are.
