Kennedy Not Impressed with Iraqi Election
Newsmax ^ | 1/31/05

Posted on 01/31/2005 6:42:19 AM PST by areafiftyone

Troop-bashing Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy said Sunday that the historic election in Iraq doesn't really change much, repeating his call for the U.S. to begin pulling its forces out of the country immediately.

Urging President Bush to "look beyond the election," Kennedy griped:

The best way to demonstrate to the Iraqi people that we have no long-term designs on their country is for the administration to withdraw some troops now." "At least 12,000 American troops, probably more, should leave at once," Kennedy said, in order "to send a strong signal about our intentions and to ease the pervasive sense of occupation."

Two days before the election the Massachusetts Democrat recommended a pullot, complaining that "the U.S. military presence [in Iraq] has become part of the problem, not part of the solution."

Teddy demands troop withdrawal because he can't stomach the success Bush will have if they stay.

Kennedy has become a nobody. He will go down in history as a nobody.

Old, drunk and fat Teddy should know that even his buddies at the UN say the election was a success. It's very enjoyable to watch the liberals implode.

And Teddy leads the way on negative spin. I can not discribe my disgust for this creature. Surely he is a spawn of hell.

Isn't that the case with all the Dems and all the DUers? The only time they are happy is when the terrorists are killing our troops - then they are gleeful cause then they can blame Bush!

I want the left to go to the next step: DENOUNCE the elections! Tell the world that they plan to return Iraq to a dictatorship! Go for it!

You aren't that far from it now.

It sounds like Ted the Lech has become part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Incorrect. They are gleeful because an American troop dies.

You think that Tanqeray Ted is poisoning the political well for future Kennedys?

Think this is what Kerry meant about the days following the election being so important the last chance the President has to get it right?

Of course, Kerry didn't have the spine to indicate what he thought the right thing to do was.

And these baffoons can't figure out why they lost.

I can just see when the Saddam trial starts the Dems will be rooting for Saddam to win and get back in power. They are a sick bunch of people!

Since when does anybody take anything this stupid drunk says seriously? It's sad that a guy who should be sitting slumped over on a barstool making these comments is propped up on the media like he matters.Put Ted to bed cause he's brain dead.
