On this post - Barack Obama: Naive about al Qaeda in Iraq , Hobbs couldn't handle the truth so he deleted my comment (the post he linked to didn't accept comments - of course):
1) The Bush Administration has vastly overstated the number of foreign fighters in Iraq according to a report from the Washington-based Center for Strategic International Studies (CSIS).
2) The Conservative CATO Inst reports:
"foreign fighters make up a relatively small component of the Sunni insurgency against the U.S. and British occupation forces. It strains credulity to imagine 1,300 fighters (and foreigners at that) dominating a country of 26 million people."
The article goes on to say how al Qaeda is nearly universally hated by Shiites, Kurds, and most Sunnis.
3) In speech after speech, Bush insists that "this is a war in which, if we were to leave before the job is done, the enemy would follow us here."
But is it true?
Military and diplomatic analysts say it isn't. They accuse Bush of exaggerating the threat that enemy forces in Iraq pose to the U.S. mainland.
"The president is using a primitive, inarticulate argument that leaves him open to criticism and caricature," said James Jay Carafano, a homeland security and counterterrorism expert for the Heritage Foundation
This is one of the stupidist lines ever fed by an Administration with a big shovel trying to save face for what the vast majority of Americans see as a total incompetent screw-up. Spending $333 million a day supposedly fighting al Qaeda - a rag tag group of shadowy bomb builders that offer no threat to the US - although the GOP would like you to think so, fear is their controlling mechanism.
Obama has mentioned many time about going after the real stronghold of al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, now that it is reported today by the AP that the Afghan government has no control over 70% of the nation.
So, I gave Bill Hobbs a second chance. That didn't work, he closed comments on that post after my submission. He complained that liberals were attacking him and using foul language. You see any foul language in my comment? None, no excuse Bill.
So, I gave Bill a third and final chance on a different post on the similar fear mongering topic: Hey Obama, al Qaeda is not just in Iraq, they're in America too.
Nope, he deleted for a third time, although he did allow a "yes man" comment 12 hrs after I submitted mine. This is how conservatives operate. Authoritarians don't know how to handle facts that refute their position of fear mongering and swiftboating. Amazing, this level of unprofessionalism since he represents the GOP in TN, you wingnuts sure have a problem. Let me add one more word to his description: hypocrite.... and after these deletions, Hobbs has the balls to say:
"The left always finds something to pick at other than to describe the issues; we're not surprised at all."If you've ever visited this political blog - Loose TN Canon, you'll know that I encourage debate, NEVER delete comments - which is one of the main tenets of my site. I deal with facts. Anyone who has debated with me knows my regard for citing facts and making fact based arguments. But facts don't fit into the world of Bill Hobbs.
Speaking of Hobb's unprofessionalism, he was reprimanded by national GOP party chairman Mike Duncan in a statement sent unsolicited to Politico: “The RNC rejects these kinds of campaign tactics. We believe this election needs to be about the critical issues confronting our nation.”
Yet Hobbs proves he doesn't want debate about critical issues, he doesn't want to talk about facts, just a soapbox from which to shovel his slime about Barack Hussein Obama - including this vile statement:
"Obama has pledged to hold a Muslim Summit to determine Middle East policy with the very leaders that have as their goal to remove Israel from the map, referenced Jews to be “dogs” and “pigs,” among other vile references."
Hobbs has had his "reprimand story" on CNN, MSNBC, and some of the leading political blogs. This is not about Barack's middle name, this is about implying he is a Muslim who would make Israel unsafe, in league with anti-Semites.
