Pleads Micheal Moore.
If he were perfectly frank, President Obama might respond thusly:
“Yes, of course I do, Mike. That’s what I told you, in essence, back on October 2, 2002.
That the likes of you chose to take me as the “anti-war” candidate on the basis of me not being John McCain, or George W. Bush, or any Republican, for that matter, is not my fault.
I can’t help the lack of clarity of your perceptions; or the enormity of the flaws in your logic.
After all, George was an oppressive fascist dictator, serving the established corporate interests that control the commanding heights of our economy.
In your mind, that makes him a “free market guy”.
Or your lack of an awareness of recent American history.
Of course, if you elect a Democrat, you’re going to get more war.
But they didn’t.
War opposition, thusly, became, how shall I put it, politically “unprofitable”.
And as we well know, there is nothing more evil than seeking profit, is there Mike?
So, enterprising as they are, the Republicans usurped our “WAR PARTY” motif.
But guess what? Thanks to guys like you who put blind faith above observation, reason and logic in your political decision-making, we Democrats can stay in good standing with the over-arching influence of the military-industrial complex and their oil industry cohorts while still enjoying an unsullied “anti-war” reputation.
Calm down, Mike. Sure, by the end of the day on Tuesday, I will have layed out my plan for escalation of the no-end-in-sight war against the people of Afghanistan.
That didn’t seem to tarnish my “anti-war” credentials, did it?
And at the end of the day on Tuesday, I will assure you that the purpose of my Afghan escalation is to provide a possibility that maybe, if things go well (I know you won’t figure the odds) at some point in the future, I’ll remove some troops from Afghanistan.
And that’s all I’ll need to keep you hysterical liberals in my corner. Thank goodness you don’t believe in objective reality.
