This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

House Republicans Respond to Murtha - New York Times:

J.D. Hayworth, Representative from Arizona: (whose " ...media career included both radio and television, most notably seven years as a sports anchor on channel 10 in Phoenix.")

"As was mentioned earlier, the majority's exit strategy is victory and freedom for the people of Iraq. Now, sadly, many on the Democratic side have revealed their exit strategy: surrender. The American people will not stand for surrender. The American people are made of sterner stuff. And the American people understand that if we turn tail and leave now more problems will visit our shores and the consequences will be far greater. And, if there's a doubt, take a look at the people of Old Europe. Take a look at the French. Take a look at what is transpiring in the streets of France.

Saddam Hussein has been deposed; he is behind bars. That is an unqualified success. Dare we now snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, plagued by poll-driven self-doubt of those who embrace surrender?

I don't believe the American people will stand for it.

I believe the American people have a simple approach. We prevail. We are victorious. Freedom prevails in the Middle East and we say no to the spread of Islamo-fascism around the globe."

... in respose to Representative John Murtha of Pennsylvania (whose notable career included 37 years in the marines.)

I believe that and I have concluded the presence of U.S. troops in Iraq is impeding this progress. Our troops have become the primary target of the insurgency. They are united against U.S. forces, and we have become a catalyst for violence. U.S. troops are the common enemy of the Sunnis, the Saddamists and the foreign jihadists. And let me tell you, they haven't captured any in this latest activity, so this idea that they're coming in from outside, we still think there's only 7 percent.


My plan calls for immediate redeployment of U.S. troops consistent with the safety of U.S. forces, to create a quick reaction force in the region, to create an over-the-horizon presence of Marines, and to diplomatically pursue security and stability in Iraq.

Part of the debate that got shunted to the side in the rush to go to war was the issue of occupation. The prowar people pooh poohed the idea that the United States would get stuck in Iraq for years. They were wrong about that too.
