FDR would have been a Republican today.

Success

What constitutes a successful counter-demonstration?  When you do this, your audience is not the people you are countering: you will never change their minds.  Your audience is general public.  So, in countering your opposition you are successful if you get a descent news coverage.  Fairly sizable crowd on your side is also pretty nice.  The best situation is when the bad guys (and is this particular situation the Hamas supporters really are the bad guys) show their true colors for the general public to see.  Well, San Diego Fox 5 Channel captured exactly that.  In their video segment they interviewed one of our guys.  He had just finished explaining to the reporter that the pro-Hamas people chants "From the river to the sea…" mean that they don’t want peace, but rather the destruction of Israel.  And then, as if on cue, the Hamas supporters started chanting: "From the river to the sea…"  That is what I call "success".  See for yourself:

    Do you agree that Bush has made some pretty terrible blunders?

  2. False. Every president makes blunders, but the real blunder was made by the Democratic Party which opposed the war in Iraq after they approved the removal of Saddam Hussein. The spinelessness of that is a shame.

    Cleaning up a mess is better than letting it fester away like President Clinton did.

    Future generations of Iraqis will have freedom and Iraq’s neighbors no longer need to fear Saddam’s aggression.

    Taking a step that solves a problem when faced with a lose-lose proposition is the right thing to do. The real terrible blunder was made by the past two presidents who allowed Saddam to remain in power.

    The biggest blunder of them all was Saddam Hussein who seriously miscalculated his hand. While President Bush got elected to a second term, Saddam was swinging at the end of a rope.
