Folks, I just really can’t say much because merely watching this clip tonight brought me to tears. British PM Tony Blair is one of the few remaining stalwarts who will readily join us in our battle between good versus evil. The United States will never have another ally like Mr. Blair. He’s got more grace, dignity, and resolve in his pinky finger than does the entire Democratic party in the United States combined. President Bush and Prime Minister Blair are/were an unflappable dynamic duo, and I’m so sad to see him go. As you can see evidenced by this farewell event, I’m not the only one who thinks so.
Blair: I’m Always With You
Tuesday September 26, 2006
Tony Blair has thanked the British people and the Labour Party for giving him “the extraordinary privilege of leading you” and said he will always be there for them.
Speaking emotionally about his forthcoming departure, he said to Labour members: “I’m always with you, head and heart.”
The Prime Minister gave no clues as to when he will step down – but he paid tribute to Gordon Brown, calling him “a remarkable man”.
As usual, Brit ends the show with a humorous bit from one of the late-night shows. Tonight was no disappointment, and it was from Jay Leno.
Clinton, that evil bastard! LOL! Watch the video here.
I’ve been missing the brilliance of Charles Krauthammer of late on the Panel, but thankfully tonight he was on. Charles’ political savvy and acumen are matched by very few, and tonight he even brought silence at the end of one of his missives. True brilliance.
Charles: As we know from the Monica days, Clinton was an angry liar. When he lies, he gets self-righteous, indignant, in-the-face; angry, exactly as he was. And what he was saying, Richard Clarke himself was, in 2002, said there was not a comprehensive plan. All he did is he left behind what the plans had been.
But he also left behind what had been unresolved in the Clinton administration: Changing Uzbekestan’s policy, Pakistan, and helping the global alliance. The three key ingredients that the Bush administration activated after 9/11, and essentially won the war in Afghanistan in 100 days… and Clarke had said that those issues, which were the key issues, were left unresolved. I would say CRIMINALLY unresolved, because of the indecision and hesitation in the Clinton administration.
I always love it when Charles is on – a voice of reason in the wilderness of insanity.
This is a day-long, rodeo round-up of a lot of the reviews of the Clinton sideshow from Sunday, complete with videos. You must be this tall to ride this ride!
These videos need no intro or transcription. They’re taken from O’Reilly, Hannity & Colmes, Fox & Friends, Special Report, and other shows, so this is just a compendium or collection of synopses by various pundits on the meltdown. Watch and enjoy. Remember, these are in no particular order. They also come from both sides of the aisle. Trust me, you won’t find this coverage anywhere else. The first segment was from Fox & Friends this morning was with Robert Pelton, author of “Licensed to Kill,” talking about how Carlos the Jackal and another CIA operative were so close they could have killed UBL and tossed him over into the Iranian Consulate. Shame shame SHAME on Clinton! Of course, they were told to “stand down” by the Administration to do just that.
