Whom Do You Trust? General Petraeus or Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid?


By: John Lillpop

After listening to President Bush and the Democrats rehash the same old lines about Iraq once again, it seems as though the matter really boils down to this:

Whom do you trust to keep America safe? General David Petraeus or Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid

Forget President Bush. At this point he is an even lamer duck than was the case in January; and he has absolutely zero credibility.

With W out of the picture, the American people must choose between General Petraeus and the liberal tag team of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

The choice is clear and unambiguous.

On the one hand, we have a highly decorated military professional who has spent most of 2007 ‘on the ground’ in Iraq, managing coalition forces.

General Petraeus is a man of such obvious intellect, integrity, and stature that he was confirmed unanimously by the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate in February.

On the other hand, we have a flighty leftist from San Francisco, a city dominated by liberals who actually believe that the U.S. military is not needed to defend America.

That of course is none other than the Speaker of the U.S. House, Nancy Pelosi.

This misguided, botox-addicted grandmother celebrated her new power early in 2007 by rushing off to visit Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Not content with simply patronizing a terrorist nation against the expressed wishes of the President of the United States during a time of war, Speaker Pelosi also managed to completely bungle a simple message from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

Pelosi’s first (and hopefully last!) attempt at Granny Diplomacy is still being sorted out by professionals in the State Department.

At the exact same time that Speaker Pelosi was wreaking havoc in diplomatic circles in the middle east, General Petraeus was on the ground in Iraq, fighting and killing Al-Quaeda and other terrorists intent on preventing democracy and freedom from taking hold there.

Of course Speaker Pelosi is joined in her political malpractice by Harry Reid, the flamboyant and charismatic majority leader of the U.S. Senate.

Senator Reid claims to be able to see into the future, which is why the senator declared that the “war is lost,” well before the surge had been given a reasonable chance.

As with all losers, Reid does not take kindly to being proven wrong, which is why he rejected General Petraeus’s plan even before hearing what the general had to say.

Instead, Reid formed his views based on that outrageous MoveOn.Org attack ad against General Petraeus in the New York Times.

Again, the bottom line is:

Whom Do You Trust? General Petraeus or Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid?
