Democratic White House hopeful John Edwards, in a major foreign policy speech Wednesday, minimized the Bush administration’s War on Terror as nothing more than a “bumper sticker slogan” used to justify the war in Iraq and “bludgeon political opponents.”
“It is now clear that George Bush’s misnamed ‘War on Terror’ has backfired — and is now part of the problem,” Edwards told the Council of Foreign Relations in New York. “The War on Terror is a slogan designed only for politics, not a strategy to make America safe. It’s a bumper sticker, not a plan.”
Mr. Edwards really needs to go back to his over sized palace, and give us all a break. I have to tell you, if the people of this country elected a useless, arrogant, slime like Edwards as president, then, I fear, all is lost. The ambulance chaser who channels dead children, and spends $400 on a bloomin’ haircut, must go back to his mother ship.
Edwards proposed foreign policy changes from the direction taken by the Bush administration, calling on Congress not to back down to White House pressure for a bill to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan without requiring a timetable for withdrawing U.S. forces. Congressional leaders said Tuesday that they are close to a deal that would fund the wars without a timetable for withdrawal.
“Every member of Congress should stand their ground on this issue and do everything in their power to block this bill,” Edwards said. “Congress should send President Bush another bill funding the troops, supporting the troops, with a timetable for withdrawal. If the president vetoes that bill, send him another one.”
I know squat about foreign policy. Edwards seems to know even less.
Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani, campaigning in New Hampshire, said Edwards is in denial.
“I don’t understand why a Democratic candidate would be in denial of what’s actually going on,” Giuliani told FOX News. “This global War on Terror is going on whether John Edwards recognizes it or not. It’s not like it’s controlled, there are people planning to come here and kill us all over the world.”
If you really want to put a name to it, call it World War III. Edwards doesn’t seem to get it that there are people in the world, and sadly many, who want to whack his pretty hair off, along with his head.
If you want to talk ‘bumper stickers’, FLUSH THE JOHN comes to mind.
I am disgusted!
