Commentary on who the terrorists are supporting

Rush Limbaugh (transcript from October 20 said:
RUSH: I mentioned this in the last hour, and actually started this discussion and thought process in September, and in September I presented it to you thus: that the largest group of undecided voters is actually Al-Qaeda terrorists and the insurgents, whoever they are in Iraq, because that's where most of the fighting against terrorism was taking place these days, and undecided back in September, and I raised the question: "Which way they going to go, with whom are they going to vote? On what side will they fall?" and I said, "We're going to have to wait and see. We'll know by their actions." Well, their early voting has begun, and they have obviously sided with the Democrats.

They are trying to create more mayhem and chaos than ever in a short, concentrated period of time. They're even in league with CNN giving video away snowing snipers kill American soldiers. CNN dutifully, slavishly runs it, and so the terrorists have chosen up. They're voting Democrat. But I have a question about this. The Democrats say that we're losing the war or that we can't win the war. We haven't a prayer. We have no hope. The Democrat strategy such as it's been articulated is to get out of there, cut-and-run, redeploy. We can't win it. It's not possible. Besides, in addition to that -- in addition to the fact that we are not only losing it, we have no chance of winning it -- we're "creating more terrorists."

Bush is creating more terrorists by even having gone to Iraq. He didn't create more terrorists by going to Afghanistan to get bin Laden, but he's creating more terrorists by going to Iraq. Now, if I'm a terrorist leader, whoever it is. Let's say Zawahiri. Who cares who it is? If I'm a terrorist leader -- and I'm going to speak in this terrorist leader's voice -- if I'm a terrorist leader, and I'm really winning this thing big time, and if the Democrat Party and the American left and the media is right, that the United States can't beat me, and in fact the United States is losing big time, and the United States has no prayer of ever winning, that there needs to be a new plan, there needs to be a new structure; and if at the same time the Americans can't beat me and I am cleaning their clocks; at the same time the Americans are creating more terrorists for me.

If all of this is making my ranks swell and grow, if I've got people all over the world wanting to join my terror group because George Bush is fighting, then who am I going to be for? Well, if I'm logical, and if I'm smart, and I really want to win the war, and if I'm in the middle of really cleaning America's clock, I want the guy that's the architect of America's defeat to stay in office and I want his party to stay in office because I want to keep winning and I want to close this out, and I want more terrorists to join my side -- and yet what do I do? Well, I throw in with the Democrats!

All of a sudden, I'm trying to make it look like it's so bad over here for George Bush and the Americans and it's pointless and it's worthless and the Americans are dying for no reason whatsoever, and I know that's going to cause the American people to vote for Democrats, why would I, Mr. Terrorist Leader, who's got one of the greatest runs going in military history, I'm about to beat the United States of America and at the same time they're creating more battlers, warriors, and soldiers for me, more terrorists, why would I undercut my own victory by getting rid of the guy and his party who is responsible for my victory?

Why would I want people who are going to assume office and leave Iraq? (Gasping.) Oops! Maybe did I answer my own question, ladies and gentlemen? Could it well be that the terrorists are the last people on the planet who think they're winning? Could it be that the terrorists in Iraq are the last people on earth who think that Bush is good for their cause? Could it be that the terrorists in Iraq and around the world think that maybe their biggest problem is Bush and his party? Must be the case, because the terrorists in Iraq, the great undecideds who are the first voters, the early voting crowd, are doing their best to get rid of the guy who is taking America down to a humiliating defeat.

They're doing their best to get rid of the president and his party who single-handedly is created more terrorists around the world, which makes me more powerful, and yet I'm doing everything I can to get rid of this guy, who's the weakest enemy I could have ever imagined? Something here doesn't jibe. But I'm just going to tell you, if you are not slightly outraged and offended when you stop and consider that our enemy is actually siding with the Democratic Party and the American left, and trying to affect the outcome of an election because they know the Democrats' victory is what takes them to victory.

They know that Democrats winning the House and the Senate and then the White House in '08, that's what ensures terror victory, that's what they want. Are you not the slightest bit outraged over this? And are you not the slightest bit outraged that they also understand how to play the American Drive-By Media to further advance the cause? I.E., secret videotape exclusive only to CNN that shows terrorists and snipers killing essentially American soldiers in nonbattlefield circumstances, cold blood? Are you not the slightest bit mad that the enemy of the United States, the people who are behind the 9/11 attacks, are voting in this election now and have chosen sides, and it's with the Democrats?

You can't pick who joins your cause. There are evil people who want democrats to win and evil people who want republicans to win, I don't see how it makes a difference. The republican form of government is beneficial to one kind of scheme and the democratic form another.

You shouldn't judge a party by who supports it, you should judge the the party by who it supports.
 
His point was that if Iraq is how the media is portraying it, the terrorists want the Republicans to win. Why not? They're making the terrorists job easier. Yet the opposite is happening.

That can mean only one of two things.
1. The situation in Iraq isn't as it's being portrayed by the media.
2. We're kicking the enemy's collective arses and they want the cut-and-run EMOcrats in.

Isn't Rush sort of pointing out the obvious?

Note that I don't listen to his show.

Ok, what next? Terrorists control the media?

Since Rush in the media, what does that make him?

Of course conclusion 1 and 2 don't follow if you don't believe the initial premise that Republicans are making the terrorist's job easier.

Even ignoring the ridiculous suppositions, assumptions and liberties that this commentary takes, it's easily one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. Let's be reasonable; America not making progress is not a victory for the terrorists, they're not just doing this to thwart America, they have goals of their own. The biggest of these goals is to get America out of the Middle East. America not winning is not the same as the terrorists winning; the terrorists are going to pursue their goals until they're met.

Stupid stupid stupid

So . . . why does Rush think the terrorists support the Democrats? He never really said.

Furthermore, the KKK is more likely to vote for the Republicans than the Democrats. Why do Republicans hate black people?

And I also don't understand this whole "The evil Democrats don't think we can win". I mean, sure, we can "win" eventually, but the real question is, is it worth the cost?

For me, the answer is a resounding "No". I initially supported the Iraq war, but I think it's obvious to all of us now (that is, all of us who are at least somewhat rooted in reality) that Iraq was not a threat to us in any way, shape, or form.

Was it really worth the death of even one US soldier to take out the likes of Saddam? No. And once you realize that, who gives a flying **** whether or not we can "win."

Rush isn't news, he's commentary.
I said "media", which, according to OED, is "1 pl. of medium 2 (usu. prec. by the) the main means of mass communication (esp. newspapers and broadcasting) regarded collectively".

So are you telling me he's not in the telly? He sure is one of them eeebil medias according to OED, even if - I sure can agree with this - he has nothing to do with news

Yeah, come to think of it, I never saw OBL in his videos posing with "VOTE KERRY" pins on his turban.

I'm torn. I don't know whether to mock Rush and his parrot and give Smeg his daily dose of ego or just ignore it and laugh at outright stupidity of a commentary and those who swallow.

Dang. I guess I already chose. Stupid cat. I will name you Schrodinger.

Mac, you know you can't open the thread to view it without destroying what you're trying to observe. Erm, wait. Why hasn't this thread been destroyed? Stupid thread. Cat. Whatever.

He was. But I reserve my umlauts for Motörhead.

I'm causing a massive inflation to the :laugh:-emoticon this morning, but I can't help it. My sweetheart is still asleep and I must refrain from lolling - she has to go to work, properly rested, after all - and I must channel my amusement for the appreciated tact or lack of herein presented.

Thus, :laugh:
