Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Truth has outed itself

Weeks into the war in Iraq back in 2003, pundits on all sides were chiding those of us opposed to the war. The world was supposedly changed forever, and in the words of Chris Matthews, we were all now neo-conservatives.

Looking back at some of these quotes reminds us just how wrong loud wishful thinking can be, especially in a time of war.

"The only people who think this wasn't a victory are Upper Westside liberals, and a few people here in Washington."
(Charles Krauthammer, Inside Washington, WUSA-TV, 4/19/03)

"We're all neo-cons now."
(MSNBC's Chris Matthews, 4/9/03)

"The war was the hard part. The hard part was putting together a coalition, getting 300,000 troops over there and all their equipment and winning. And it gets easier. I mean, setting up a democracy is hard, but it is not as hard as winning a war."
(Fox News Channel's Fred Barnes, 4/10/03)

"Over the next couple of weeks when we find the chemical weapons this guy was amassing, the fact that this war was attacked by the left and so the right was so vindicated, I think, really means that the left is going to have to hang its head for three or four more years."
(Fox News Channel's Dick Morris, 4/9/03)

The president, in forums like the one today in Cleveland, continues to encourage Americans to stay the course and talks about all the progress supposedly taking place, but a majority of the country has tuned him out after being disappointed too many times.
