"Hey Gang. Let's Put On A Surge!" ... The Results - The Garlic Weekly Poll

Like some twisted channeling of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland, our Court-Appointed President came out on national television tonight and, basically, gave a “Hey gang, let’s put on a surge!”

And, not to be overlooked, and undoubtedly to the delight of Vice President Cheney, unless my television set took a quick pass through the Twilight Zone, didn’t Big Dubya declare war against Iran and Syria

This begins with addressing Iran and Syria. These two regimes are allowing terrorists and insurgents to use their territory to move in and out of Iraq. Iran is providing material support for attacks on American troops. We will disrupt the attacks on our forces. We will interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria. And we will seek out and destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies in Iraq.

Lastly, as Denzel Washington demanded, in the movie ‘Philadelphia’, explain to me, like a 5-year-old, just how Senator Joe Lieberman (R-I-CT) is caucusing with the Democrats?

Acting on the good advice of Senator Joe Lieberman and other key members of Congress, we will form a new, bipartisan working group that will help us come together across party lines to win the war on terror. This group will meet regularly with me and my Administration, and it will help strengthen our relationship with Congress.

As to our Garlic Poll, “Cut-and-Run” wasn’t evoked again, so we only went 3-out-of-4 (and our Mea Culpa - we meant to have the date of the poll for today’s date, not until the 13th)

4th Line

When I addressed you just over a year ago, nearly 12 million Iraqis had cast their ballots for a unified and democratic nation. The elections of 2005 were a stunning achievement.

11th Line

We benefited from the thoughtful recommendations of the Iraq Study Group, a bipartisan panel led by former Secretary of State James Baker and former Congressman Lee Hamilton. In our discussions, we all agreed that there is no magic formula for success in Iraq. And one message came through loud and clear: Failure in Iraq would be a disaster for the United States.

13th Line

On September the 11th, 2001, we saw what a refuge for extremists on the other side of the world could bring to the streets of our own cities. For the safety of our people, America must succeed in Iraq.

The Results - The Garlic's Weekly Poll January 8 - January 10, 2007

In President Bush’s long-delayed and overdue speech on a new Iraq Strategy, anticipated this week, he’ll likely reuse which over worn phrase the most...

1. “Victory In Iraq will make us safer here at home”... Tally 43%

2. “12-Million Iraqis went to the polls and voted for Democracy...” Tally 30%

3. “Saddam Hussein’s ties to Al Qaeda and Sept. 11th” Tally 16%

4. “To the critics who want us to cut-and-run”... Tally 11%

This week’s Poll - For the remainder of Court-Appointed President Bush’s term, which will get more funding, construction and/or reconstruction?
