Libya vs. Iraq


  1. Is it possible that you've been eavesdropping in my house? Brilliant video. Thank you.

  2. Exactly, Bookworm.
    Part of the genius of this video comes from the way politically thoughtful viewers can visualize themselves in it.
    When I watched it, I saw my brother-in-law and myself. My wife saw herself talking to her young boss. Our elder daughter saw herself trying to reason with her college roommate.
    Plus, the characters' mannerisms are Perfect.
    This video might just affect the national conversation.

  3. Brilliant. All conservatives will likely see themselves trying to have an intelligent conversation using logic and facts with a liberal who does not care about the facts and who refuses to listen to the truth. Thanks so much for putting this together! (What Anonymous said...)

    I care about facts and truth, and I'm willing to debate this comparison with you using those tools.

    Care to debate?

  5. To quote Osama Bin Laden; "Hypocrites!" The LEFT has no fig leaf big enough to cover this up. Europeans will hang back from the fight, allow the USA to tarnish its good name, then as usual step in to sell goods and services to the winner. Who wins is not important; Europeans are economic prostitutes. Ridiculous that American should shed blood and treasure and ruin our names in the effort to provide Europe its oil. STOP the madness! Camillus

  6. This is classic! Trying to reason with unreasonable people is like beating your head against a wall.. love the video!

  7. The difference between Irac and Libia is that we didn't take over the country, and keep armed forces on the ground there until, ohh yea we haven't left yet, because Bush fabricated WMDs even with the inspectors on the ground in Irac advising us that they didn't exist. He used 911 as an excuse to finish what his daddy couldn't do. Irac was not bombing their own people. Yes their were human rights issues. If you want to use human rights issues as an excuse for war we should be attacking half the world. All you are trying to do is make a one sided slanted view make the other side look stupid. Your the DA

  8. You are an Idiot portraying a one sided slanted conservative view. Are you a member of the BUSH family??????????

  9. Do you seriously think that our economy is in the toilet due to one presidents 2 years in office. You must be kidding, or you are only basing your oppinions on what you hear in the news. It certainly could not be based on the history of our governments waist and special interest groups both Republican and Democrat. People like you spew uninformed untruths. You will probably vote for Sara Pailen because she can see Russia from her back yard, and you see that as a plus for forien affair deplomacy.

  10. You are obviously self indulgent with your your uninformed ramblings. You really need to base your ramblings on all of the facts not just the ones that you concieve in your on mind. There are the facts and the truth and are lacking in most of them

  11. The March 27th commentator's video in response misses the point.

    In the original video, the man is pointing out the woman's double standards at work in her defense of Obama and his actions in Libya versus her vilification of Bush and his actions in Iraq. The man is not defending Bush.

    Nothing in the response video effectively counters the original video's point.

    The response video indicates that the original video's woman was an unrealistically ill-informed straw woman set up by the video's maker expressly for the man to ridicule.

    For those who believe the woman was an unrealistically blindered, "I don't care. Obama is Awesome!" caricature, please check out Mother Jones' star columnist Kevin Drum's opinion piece from Friday.

    Kevin Drum: "So what should I think about this [Obama's Libya attack]? If it had been my call, I wouldn't have gone into Libya. But the reason I voted for Obama in 2008 is because I trust his judgment. And not in any merely abstract way, either: I mean that if he and I were in a room and disagreed about some issue on which I had any doubt at all, I'd literally trust his judgment over my own. I think he's smarter than me, better informed, better able to understand the consequences of his actions, and more farsighted. I voted for him because I trust him, and I still do."

    Translation: "I don't care. Obama is Awesome!"

  12. > Anon@3/27: Care to debate?

    Yes. The Right isn't the one claiming the need to get UN approval. The Left is. Using Reagan as an counterpoint on Congress is a blatant and deceptive abuse of rhetorical counterpoint since Reagan did a one-time attack, not a continued and extended war. You might debate the legality of that, I grant, but it's an entirely different thing from what either Bush or Obama has done, so attempting to equate them is either foolish or disingenuous. I can shred you further but it was quite clear you had no intention of being honest with any of the things you brought up. But by all means, defend your first lie, there, and then we'll proceed.

    Dumbass, lurn haow tu spel beefour yu tri und sownd awf yore vastlee ignerint upinyuns, y'no?

    If you don't even know how to **spell** the names of the nations in question, how can you POSSIBLY imagine you know dick about the nations or the events there? Geez, the spellings for both nations have only been in the news a few kabillion times in the last 10 years.

    Oh, right, you never actually -read- anything, you just heard your talking parrot points on PBS.

  13. > Anon@3/31:

    In the subsequent ones, same thing. At least learn how to spell people's names you nitwit, you look like a moron since it's blatantly obvious you get everything from talking heads on TV and not from actually reading anything.

    Clue: The information density of TV news ANYWHERE is about the same reliability as you consider Glenn Beck. And, though I've never watched him myself, I'd lay odds he's at least as honest and devoted to the truth as the talking heads of PBS, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, and MSNBC.

    In short, listening to talking heads is a lame and stupid way to get your news, no matter the channels involved.

  14. The Quit does not have any fig leaf sufficient to pay this kind of upward. Europeans will certainly dangle back from the fight, allow the U . s . to tarnish the good title, next usually step up to trade products and services on the safe bet. That wins is not important; Eurpean people are generally economic prostitutes.
