Michael Moore posted a bat shit crazy open letter to Obama on his website today. It seems to have been written in another dimension because some of the things Moore mentions have little resemblance to America today.
For example, take a look at the opening paragraph:
Do you really want to be the new "war president"? If you go to West Point tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8pm) and announce that you are increasing, rather than withdrawing, the troops in Afghanistan, you are the new war president. Pure and simple. And with that you will do the worst possible thing you could do -- destroy the hopes and dreams so many millions have placed in you. With just one speech tomorrow night you will turn a multitude of young people who were the backbone of your campaign into disillusioned cynics. You will teach them what they've always heard is true -- that all politicians are alike. I simply can't believe you're about to do what they say you are going to do. Please say it isn't so.
Really, young people have not already turned cynical after being told by Obama that unemployment would not go over 8% with the passage of the stimulus? I am willing to bet much of those young people fresh out of college desperately hunting for jobs could live with Obama’s decision on Afghanistan, if they could find some decent paying work today.
Moore in his over dramatics even invokes Martin Luther King:
What would Martin Luther King, Jr. do? What would your grandmother do? Not send more poor people to kill other poor people who pose no threat to them, that's what they'd do. Not spend billions and trillions to wage war while American children are sleeping on the streets and standing in bread lines.
Just a guess, but I don’t think Martin Luther King would not have dithered for 3 months on Afghanistan either way. Plus where the hell are all these American children sleeping in the streets and standing in bread lines?
Not all of Moore’s letter is complete leftwing foolery, he does correctly state that the Afghan government is corrupt. However, Moore sees no downside to dropping a war in the lap of that corrupt government.
If you can read through the whole thing, Moore’s letter to Obama on Afghanistan can basically be summed up, as “Please be a quitter”! Moore basically wants Obama to walk away from Afghanistan and forge ahead with spending us into oblivion.
Track-A–‘Crat does a very nice take down on the rest of Moore’s craziness over at the Greenroom.
