"The Last Helicopter"

Don’t miss Amir Taheri in today’s OpinionJournal.com, where he meditates on the lasting imagery of the fleeing American helicopter (from Saigon, Beruit, Desert One, Mogadishu, etc), and how Middle Eastern radicals understand that while Bush will not be driven away, they can wait for his successor to fold up and leave.

According to this theory, President George W. Bush is an "aberration," a leader out of sync with his nation’s character and no more than a brief nightmare for those who oppose the creation of an "American Middle East." Messrs. Abbasi and Ahmadinejad have concluded that there will be no helicopter as long as George W. Bush is in the White House. But they believe that whoever succeeds him, Democrat or Republican, will revive the helicopter image to extricate the U.S. from a complex situation that few Americans appear to understand.

As the saying goes, RTWT.

"We’re now down to the final four. Not college basketball. The number of people who still think President Bush is doing a good job."

Almost as good as manliness!
Haha.

Spoken like a leader of the "cut-and-run" crowd.

That byby is citing Jay Leno’s second-rate jokes at all and not watching the Colbert Report (as Right-skewering as it is) tells us all we need to know about his depth and insight.

I just afraid Taheri might be right. Is there another politician who’ll buck the polls?

The Middle East will see no difference between President McCain and President Bush! Much to their chagrin and dismay!

To me, it sounds more like a person who finds the prospect of us losing the WoT as funny. Haha.

I think the Republican party has a virtual lock on the next presidency, although I doubt he will be John McCain. In any event, whoever the President is, the Bush doctrine will be perpetuated, IMHO.

I think people like funny Haha by byby do a service to this country by reminding us why we cannot have a democrat in the White House so long as the WoT continues.

As the saying goes, RTWT.

It took me weeks to figure out what IMHO meant and I had to ask what LOL meant. So What does RTWT mean. Forgive my stupidity and please don’t LOL at me...O.K. go ahead and LOL. I don’t care.

Why are y’all so skeered all the time? Was mommy too mean? Oh, oh here comes the twittering key board warriors with the only song they know. 911911911911911911.....
Dont’ forget the plastic and duct tape!

Twittering keyboard warriors?

How does one know that some of us are NOT participating in the War or Terror ... hmmmm?

Yikes, looks like "byby"’s gonna be getting his phone tapped by Dale.

So, Mr. Michaud, why did you come out and reveal yourself now? Also, are you no longer living in Texas, are you no longer a "dude", or both??

Uncle Guido, RTWT means "Read the whole thing." Haven’t you noticed that the bloggers here recommend we do this for about every rant they link to? They really get their kicks with this phrase for some reason... So remember, even if you can feel your brain shrinking with every word, or you’re bored to tears, just keep reading because you’ve been instructed to read the WHOLE thing!!

I still consider myself a dude, still live in Texas, and felt that it was appropriate to drop my pseudonym.

As to tapping phones, I, as a Texas Peace Officer, need a warrant and there is no probable cause for me to even justify one.

Then again ... I do have friends ....

Just kidding ;)

Now, if President Bush is an aberration, then we are truly in trouble as a country.

Phone tap, hell. Send him to Gitmo with the rest of the parlor pinks and sob sisters.
