This is an interesting commentary on Iraq. The poster believes the "speech" is bogus for several reasons he states at the end of the piece. I left a comment on this blog. I think the "speech" has some problems defining strategy in Iraq.

I just argued this very thing recently as the basis behind a liberal mass media. In effect the "liberal" media is the effect of Ignorant journlists - the result of education that fails to address the issues Reese talks about in this artcle.

What an eye-opener! And, this is just ONE hospital and ONE industry. I do not think any forceful illegal immigration policy will be forthcoming for a long time with the new majority in congress. Look at the voter base that this largesse supports -- ie: "pays off" for when and if they are given amnesty and allowed to vote. PLUS all the support cash for ancillary and direct support to the hospital community for its work caring for the health issues of illegals. It is an industry with huge implications to job opportunities tied to the largesse. People with THOSE jobs will certainly not be eager to cut back on illegal immigration! They are essentially bought off with taxpayer dollars to support their own jobs through a liberal congress. I give you the direct SNOPES link because it helps to validate the article.

Mark Rolef made this video in October. The SKIRMISH fields in PA are often used for scenario games. A day at this is exhausting - so imagine what the REAL veterans of the Battle for Berlin went through! God Bless our Veterans. Your use of stock footage of WWII with your footage from the day, give this a sense of heritage - with the excitement of scenario combat. I was there for this day and I have to say, I really HATE that German tank! It took me out in a very painful way! Outstanding video, Mark. Keep them coming! For history buffs - may I suggest a book? "Armageddon - The Battle for Germany 1944-45". Thanks for the vid.

Dumb politicians. The R's have often showed how poor they are at explaining their policies and this was no exception. How come R's are so dumb about political strategy and painting their positions so they can be understood and D's are so good at creating positve perceptions for the muddled middle?
A. The Deficit was headed that way from the last half of Clinton's presidency when the 'bubble burst' but Dems continued to make hay out of it even after 9/11 which required 'super spending' by the govt. to jump start a dead patient (the economy). The corresponding tax cuts generated huge tax REVENUES to the government that eventually began to cut into the deficit. This has never been explained well by R's. Pictures - cartoons - editorials ... nothing really addressed very well how the economy was booming but would be DEAD without the tax cuts. Now you can expect tax increases with the D's and very likely a stalled economy - and LOWER tax revenues -- but under a Bush Presidency. Hello Hillary in 2008.
B. IRAQ - and Rumsfeld. HE became a lightning rod for the war protestors and I think he enjoyed it. Bush allowed the circuits to break (this election) before he would make any move to replace Rummy. A replacement for Rummy 3 to 6 months ago was all he needed to show he was listening and he wanted a new perspective. Bush is too loyal to a performing staff member even though the staff member is crushing the party from an undeserved but nevertheless effective rant from the left.
C. Chaney has been painted effectively as "the devil" by Dems and unfortunately his photographic persona plays well to the left who see him that way. Is he effective? Yes. Is he now irrelevant? Yes. He is a placeholder at the VP spot where someone else could be making strides toward the 2008 race. He should not have been on the ticket in 2004, but he could still find a graceful "out" for health reasons if he cared about the country ... and the R's chances in 2008.
D. Immigration was not on the front burner for the voters that made the difference here. If it had been, R's would still hold congress. InVitro fertilized eggs and blastomeres research was not on the front burner for those who chose to vote Dem. Gay marriage was not on the front burner for those who voted Dem. But these topics were manipulated by Dems to land in wedge positions to be argued by R's and thus took steam away from the R successes. R's are just really bad at making their case and are easily felled by wedge issues.
