newt gingrich on Iraq

[q]"It was an enormous mistake for us to try to occupy that country after June of 2003. We have to pull back, and we have to recognize it," Newt Gingrich.

http://www.time.com/time/quotes/0,26174,1182460,00.html

[/q]



it some ways, this gets to the heart of the situation: many cases can be made about the strategic and moral good of removing Saddam Hussein.

however, what good does a removal do when the occupation has gone as badly as it has?

is Iraq simply un-occupiable, or has this administration been uniquely incompetent?

That's a shame that he might have to pay with his life for someone's else's mistakes. This situation is pissing me off big time.

Call me uppity, but I could fix you a Southern meal ten times more authentic and vibrant than her Cheez Whiz-'n'-canned-cream-of-mushroom-soup laden heresies. I cried when I saw her fix collard and cream cheese wontons for a "Low Country" buffet party.

She's got camera-ready Southern charm in spades though, I'll grant her that. Maybe I'm just sore because I'm from the wrong side of the mint-tea-sipping tracks. If you find the pageantry of all that stuff entertaining, Being Dead is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies' Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral is a very funny cookbook and ode to unpretentiously pretentious Southern affectations, told from a thoroughly eccentric Delta country point of view.


lol...this thread has strayed pretty far from Gingrich, hasn't it?

Sounds like Gingrich might be making another run for office.

Newt Gingrich Considers Presidential Run

Sunday , January 09, 2005



WASHINGTON — Newt Gingrich (search) is taking steps toward a potential presidential bid in 2008 with a book criticizing President Bush's policies on Iraq and a tour of early campaign states.

The former House speaker who led Republicans to power a decade ago said he soon will visit Iowa (search) and New Hampshire to promote his book, try to influence public policy and keep his political options alive.

"Anything seems possible," including a White House race, Gingrich told the Associated Press.

how dare you insult the southern grandma i never had!



and i just told on you to the BF (who's from outside of Memphis so he's all authentic and stuff), and he had this to say:

[q]"your online professor friend IS uppity -- if she is so smart and can cook better than Paula, then why doesn't she have her own TV show"[/q]

He may. But whatever, I never thought I'd agree with Newt Gingrich on anything, and I basically do agree with this. I've always been pessimistic on Iraq, and I still am.

It's just been announced that a car bomb blew up in a Shi'ite neighborhood, killing 13 people. Man, those Wahhabists think all Shi'ites are "dirty infidels".
