James Webb gets hit with a Hardball
As my friends know, I am very open minded. I had watched James Webb on Colbert and I watched James Webb on Hardball this evening. If you blink you will miss him. Chris Mathews wasted no time in establishing Webb is the democrat, who turned republican, who is now a democrat again. One thing I found interesting was this. Vietnam was right and Iraq is wrong. In other words my war good-your war bad. No wonder John Murtha is scheduled to appear at a Webb event. He had no answers on Iraq except the same old democrat stand by: wrong war. Wow, that is original. He also said that the situation in Iraq was not that bad before 9/11. Tell that to the Iraqis who are joining the police forces and going to school and college. He also said to fight terrorism we should never occupy. We have had troops in Afghanistan longer than Iraq. We removed both governments. Both have had elections. Democracy is at work there. James Webb may have been Born Fighting, but he is fighting himself. With all the hoopla being made over Webb from lefty Virginia, I expected more. The look on his face at the end of the interview was priceless. Possum in the headlights. Wait, it is 7:55 and it is on again. Welcome to the 21st century Mathews says! This is the man that is supposed to have George Allen and the republicans scared? I have read the book, read the blogs, and read the campaign websites. Sorry, I don't see it. I will keep a open mind for now.
