PARDON ME WHILE I GLOAT (Van Orden rant - great read)
email ^ | 11/10/04 | Dick Van Orden

Posted on 11/10/2004 5:22:51 AM PST by Elkiejg

Received the following email from retired Spec. Ops. officer who has lots of contacts still active military. - ENJOY.

I am not normally a cheerful loser or a gracious winner. Whether its tiddly-winks or war at sea, I want to win, win, win! In fact, I hate to lose and when I win I sometimes want to rub the loser's nose in his defeat. After a sleepless night I feel just rotten enough that the past six months of lies and innuendos from the Kerry camp have it all come home to make me more vindictive than usual. As a result, I want to gloat. Here's why:

I am happy that the sound common sense of a majority of America's voters resulted in a solid victory for a true patriot-and in the humiliating defeat of a lying traitor. There was no doubt in my mind that Bush's truthfulness and forthrightness would prevail against the lies and half-truths of Kerry and his supporters, and I am pleased that a majority of good folks saw the light and pushed the Bush/ Cheney button for justice and for increasing support for the nation's bright future.

I am pleased that the left-leaning media-newspapers, radio, TV and newsmagazines-got their bell rung, but good. Now we are assured that these self-appointed "opinion makers" cannot pull the wool over the eyes of most of us, no matter how hard they twist the facts. Their early reporting of the "leaked" fraudulent exit polls, and their sponsorship of other badly skewed voter polls were designed to mislead voters, in which they failed-miserably. And Dan Rather deserves a special place in hell.

I am delighted that the fat, disgusting a-hole, Michael Moore did not achieve the success that he wished for and that he was repulsed by so many intelligent Americans. May his soul burn in hell.

I hope the Hollywood friends of Michael Moore-especially Barbara Streisand, Whopi Goldberg, P-Diddler, and their friends-are roasting in the hell of their own making. It seems to me that they all offered to depart the U.S. if Bush won the first time, which they did not do. The time is now doubly ripe for their exit.

I am blissful that all the treasure and invective of George Soros devoted to defeating George Bush went for naught. I only wish for a financial future of similar poor decisions by Soros; I want to see him as bankrupt in bank account as he is in patriotism.

I find it particularly satisfying that the high ranking military suck-ups whose lack of integrity led them to desert their commander-in-chief and follow a lying cheat, even though they knew, or should have known, that his dismissal from the Navy was "less than honorable," as detailed in the military record that he refused to release. It is sad that such Navy types as Bill Crowe, Stan Turner, and even Jimmy Carter would be in that group. It is obvious that their motivation was the hope of a cushy job when their new-found knight in shining armor moved into the White House. Even their strategy was flawed, for Kerry is, and always has been, anti-military; he only used his military service-and those military "advisors"-for personal political gain. He would never have offered that cushy job, once he had used them, just as he never voted for the needed armament that they and their shipmates and their Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force brothers-in-arms needed so badly.

I am thrilled that the whiners who have complained bitterly about the "stolen" 2000 Presidential election must leave that fallacy in the past and now try to find something else to whine about-maybe they can even develop a fantasy that the four million vote plurality was a miscount, and continue their whining as they slink away into their caves.

It pleases me that Kofi Annan and the other United Nations sycophants failed miserably when they tried so hard to influence this election to ensure that a more pliable President Kerry would be elected. I hope they will now realize that either they clean up the bureaucratic, corrupt, do-nothing UN, or they will be short of funds when the Bush-led US decreases-or ends-its support.

I am overjoyed at the failure of Osama bin Laden's carefully timed video of invective against the US and its President in hopes of using Islamic scare tactics on the American people. Bin Laden's aim was to entice our voters to elect a new President who will not be as robust in his pursuit of terrorists and more willing to "negotiate" with Islamic Fundamentalists. He did not understand that Americans are not so panicky as the French, fearful as the Spanish, or unthinking as the English. (As for the Germans, they should know better; we have defeated them in battle often enough to convince them of the rightness of our ways.) I hope Osama dies in a blast from a bunker-buster before he gets a chance to make another video or another attack on our nation.

The blatant attempts of European nations and the EU to cause our President discomfort in his efforts to bring peace to the world make me glad that they are so disappointed with the election results. My joy is unbounded at the chagrin of the French and German and other anti-Bush, anti-American nations

(including the people of the UK-but not their loyal and faithful government led by Prime Minister, Tony Blair). Now let those U.S.-sheltered Europeans worry about the end of American financial and military assistance when they have problems. Let them beg for American military aid and other handouts that have helped to sustain their economies. And let them perish in their own sweat when we remove out troops from Germany, the Balkans, and other trouble spots where we have pulled their chestnuts out of the fire.

I relish the hope that Islamic fundamentalists will now understand the election result as a blow from which they cannot recover. It fills me with joy that their dreams of world domination will be shattered by Bush's and the American nation's resolve to see them defeated and sent to join their Allah-without the 72 virgins waiting for them.

It pleases me more than I can say that the Senate Minority Leader, Thomas Daschle lost his seat. As the leading obstructionist for the Democrat party, he was primarily responsible for withholding approval of many Bush appointments to Federal judgeships, high-level positions, and other necessary personnel. Good riddance.

The demise of the junk-yard dog, loudmouth James Carville, also brings me great happiness. That happiness is further enhanced by the victory of the first Republican to win a Senate seat in Louisiana, Carville's home state.

I am delighted with the success of John O'Neil and his Swift Boat Vets-and with those thousands of non-Swifties who joined with them-on their forthright revelation of the truth of Kerry's service in Vietnam. They took a truthful but difficult position and made an impact-good and honorable Navy men all. Bush gets gentlemanly credit for not using them and their data in his campaign to demean Kerry, but the word was out that they spoke the truth. I maintain that they were the MVPs of this election; their testimony turned the tide against Kerry, and he never recovered.

And, finally, I must express my unbounded gratification at the defeat of Senator Kerry, a worthless Senator, anti-military extremist, lying self-promoter, and former Naval officer who disgraced us all. His traitorous collusion with the enemy is second only to that of Jane Fonda. He should have been court-martialed for giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. His dishonorable quest for medals and a quick return to the US, where he turned against his shipmates and lied about their actions resulted in a less than honorable separation from the Navy. Jimmy Carter's amnesty allowed him to file for, and get, an honorable discharge 18 years after he left the service. He should have received a court martial.

While my thoughts may seem to be mean-spirited, do not be confused-they really are mean-spirited, as I mean them to be. I have suffered the tortures of the damned over the past year as I heard and read the lies and nasty remarks from politicians, citizens, and media "experts" about our President. I have barely tolerated the feeble but divisive attempts of foreign and domestic peaceniks to build a case against our war on the Islamic fundamentalists, who use terrorism as a weapon against us in order to intimidate out citizens and drive some of our gutless politicians to seek "negotiations" to avoid "confrontations" with those who seek to kill our citizens.

Most of all, I have seethed with anger at those who shamefully derided out military, blissfully reporting on their failures and neglecting their successes. They triumphantly celebrated our difficulties by running daily body counts of our own heroic men killed in battle with the enemy, even publishing their pictures in papers and on TV as if to mock the President who sent them to defend our nation. I have only disgust for such tactics. And those are the very same people who now plead for "united actions" in the House and Senate, now that they are in a steadily declining minority. I would advise our President to "watch your six" because these are really enemies and they are not to be trusted.

Four more years! How sweet it is!

I ain't gonna send anyone to hell (having too much of my own backyard to worry about), but other than that I agree with the whole rant.

One cannot burn what does not (in Moore's case) actually exist. :)

This is the best read I have had in a long time. These are my sentiments and expressions of my long suffering frustrations with the left wing and left wing media exactly. Our main stream news media is the cess pool drain of the world. I no longer watch TV. Screw em! I filter through the web news(with a grain of salt) for real insight as to what is going on in the world.

Beware! I predict a broadside attack on the free on free internet speech by the left wing. Look out for internet tax legislation and attacks on blogger sites especially.

I stand with you. Your post merits the highest standard of the truth. I too relish the defeat of a traitor, communist, opportunist, gigilo and psychopath. Kerry and the dems were unprepared for the Pale-Rider's rightous fury. Take care my friend, "All The Way" It's a patriotic/ military thing liberals will never understand.

Oh! This is a keeper for my grandchildren to read. I don't think the author left anything out - mirrors my feelings exactly.

One other thing. I fail to understand why Republican members of Congress hunkered down when the mud-slinging against President Bush began. Not a word spoken in his defense or behalf. Every fund raising letter I got from them got sent right back with a notation from me that when they got off their wuss's and fought back, then I would consider sending donations. I donated instead to the SwiftBoats, Thune, and the Presidential Campaign./rant Ah well, it ended well but the hate from the left marches on.

Here are several letters to the editor from today's Austin paper. Feel the hate in the last two.

Not affected by media bias

Now that the election is over, the national media, print and TV, are trying to determine what went wrong. The populace was bombarded with months of unethical reporting to help the liberals win the election. The northeast "intellectual" press and the "Hollywood elite" were convinced their influence would swing the uneducated ordinary folk to elect their chosen man.

The outcome of this election reflects that the average American voter has been proven to be a well-informed, educated voter who does not believe the trash reporting of the liberal northeast influence.

We owe a debt of gratitude to U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay for taking time away for his busy schedule in Washington to help Texas correct the redistricted map from 2001. We owe a ton of bricks to the Texas Democratic legislators who cost the tax payers $1.7 million by not reporting for work on this important issue.


Round Rock

Silent majority is heard

Re: Leonard Pitts' Nov. 7 column, "Could we really be one country splitting in two?":

Pitts is a prime example of what has become of those in America who have lost touch with the reality in which they live. You can easily see exactly how extremely far left the liberals in this country have taken themselves when you look at the following quote from his column. "Morality is, of course, a code word for antipathy toward gay rights and abortion. Those who shared that antipathy voted overwhelmingly for President Bush."

The truth of the matter is quite simple to see and therefore easy to understand in terms of the recent election results. The vast majority of Americans believe that being gay is morally wrong. The vast majority further believes that abortions by the millions is also morally wrong. Gay rights and abortion are in fact both antipathies toward morality. The silent majority has been force-fed the blather of people such as Pitts for too long. It appears that the silent majority has decided not to remain silent.



Why should we unite?

I am amazed and repulsed by the joint call for unity from President Bush and John Kerry. You don't work for months on end to divide this country, as Bush has done with his fear tactics and attacks on John Kerry, and then ask us all to unite behind him.

And surely Kerry knows that those of us who supported him will not do so. We, the loyal opposition, will not capitulate, and we are not going to suddenly find ourselves in agreement with the abysmal policies of this administration.

On the contrary, Bush will find us opposing him every step of the way as this version of Republicanism attempts to reshape our country. Unity? Count me out.



U.S. will stay divided

As much as I didn't like the outcome of this election, I will say this: President Bush finally won a presidential election, albeit by an extremely small majority. Very nearly half of this country that voted and many that did not vote do not like him and his policies. Neither do our former long-term allies around the world. These allies could be sending troops to relieve our beleaguered, overworked kids in Iraq. They will not do this with Bush in the White House.

High marks in the war on terror? He has retarded its progress — not helped it — and we will pay. I look for four more years of sharp division in this country (except between the Senate, House and White House), escalating fuel prices which translates to unemployment and more job outsourcing, more tax breaks for the rich and many more body bags. We will continue to be a deeply divided nation.
