Crowley: Don't Forget About The War

Cincinnati Vice Mayor David Crowley, who successfully got City Council last year to approve a resolution against President Bush's troop surge in Iraq, reminded his colleagues during council tonight that this is the fifth anniversary of the war.

It's "continuing to cost us human life," he said, and contributing to the United States' current economic downturn.

"It's already been moved off the front pages...But it continues to be a killer of our young men and women."

what continues to be a killer of our young men and women,david,is gang bangers in the city of cincinnati.
try dealing with that instead of posturing about the iraq war,alright?

Well Osama Bin Crowley, keep your fingers crossed that things will start going badly in Iraq and soldiers start losing their lives that way it will get back on the front pages.

Why don't you move your liberal keester to Canada where you belong.

I'll just add my vote to the ones above. David Crowly can't even govern Cincinnati, but he fancies himself a foreign policy expert.

Yes, let's have an observance of Iraq war dead. But why is he leaving out the soldiers of WWI&II, Vietnam (Democrat war), and of all other wars?

Later on, Crowly can have an observance of the sixty plus people murdered each year in Cincinnati.

If I was a city council member in one of the worst run cities in the country, I would keep my head down.

The war "moved off the front page" because it did not fit the lib model of failure. We only talk about it if the news is bad. Never has an allegedly American political party been so heavily invested in American military failure. Sure sounds like a good place to get the next commander in chief, doesn't it?

Typical wRong wingnut whackos spewing the elephant dung propaganda !

The wRong wingnut press wants to make the misleader look good so they can get that immunity for all their illegal spying on US citizens.

If it was all perfectly legal as the White House says it was, they wouldn't need Congress to say it was, now would they?

PATHETIC 'family values' !

Crowley is a good man. Leave him along you ignorant people. He spent over 20 years living & working in some of the poorest countries. He worked for the UN, Catholic Relief Services and a few other organizations. Anything Crowley says about foreign policy or foreign nations should be listened to carefully.

It blows me away at how ignorant some of you bloggers are about the folks on city council. Please read their bio's and then attempt to write a statement that makes sense.

The surge, championed by our next president John McCain, is working.

...Much to the chagrin of deomcRAT nutjobs like Crowley.

Worry about the city's problems, Crowley.

Can you people be any more un-informed? Did none of you see the interview with Dick Cheney today about the war? SO?
Two wrongs don't make a right, folks - there's a reason sayings like that exist - they're tried and true.
The economic and human tradegy of this war - must be reconciled with our duty to safeguard those in Iraq who supported and protected Americans -- other than that - we need to exit

Actually, the daily suicide bombings have been moved to A-6,7 or 8.
Cheney telling us great it's going, got better coverage this week.

Where's the coverage on Iraqi's progress on the benchmarks? Nowhere.

The truth stings, doesn't it? The wingnuts can't stand hearing the truth.

You can add this one:

Today 29 percent of Americans say the results of the war were worth it; 64 percent say they were not.


by a not so odd coincidence, Bush's approval rating is at 29% as well.

The war "moved off the front page" because it was not the success that the bush crime family wanted it to be. The only time it gets talked about is when bush wants us to be scared. Never has a political party been so invested in lying to the american people while they rob us blind.

Just wait until after the November election when you Dems start running the government.
I hope you are either super rich or uneducated, unemployed; they will do fine.
The middle class guy will take a beating like he's never seen before.
Then, your party will be doing the lying as they move the American public to Socialism.

there's a story on this website today bemoaning the loss of population in Hamilton County.I'll be joining that exodus when my child graduates next year.I don't want to be associated any longer with the LIBERALS that have taken root in Cincinnati as exemplified on this thread.
Crowley poses,I criticize him for it,am the called ignorant because I don't take resume' into account...?
WTF? I'm tired of LIBERALS changing the subject.I'm tired of LIBERALS attacking and savaging the RIGHT.
You can keep this pisspot called Cincinnati.Next year I'm gone...and I'm canceling my Enquirer subscription.What a crap paper.

I'd give a lot more credence to Crowley's concerns about the Iraq War if he spent even one night at some kind of event or introduced even one council resolution honoring thse killed by the random violence which plagues his own city. I mean, Crowley is a City Councilman, right? Does he share some kind of responsbility for the city's record?

at 11:02 AM, March 20, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Someone should tell Crowley that abortion also continues to be "a killer of our young men and women"
in far, far greater numbers than the war in Iraq. Even though he professes to be a Catholic, he doesn't seem too worried about that. In fact, abortion is fine with him.

beaten to the punch: how many human lives does reproductive choice cost us?

at 12:50 PM, March 20, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

There have been instances of political parties invested in the American military's defeat before. The Tory party would have liked an L for the American army during the Revolutionary war. And Southern Democrats would have really liked the US army, led by a Republican commander-in-chief, to have lost in the Civil War. Hey, that second one sounds kind of familiar...

10:19, please do leave the area. In fact, why don't you leave the country while you are at it.

9:58, Stick a sock in it. You must be mentally challenged. Nobody has stuck it to the middle class like your GOP has. The super rich-Carl Linder, Richard Farmer, Warren Buffet-are paying 17% in taxes on their billions of dollars of income, while we pay 30% in taxes on our income.

The GOP is the party of the rich and Big Business.

And as to 'socialism', with the GOP it's socialism for the big boys but cutthroat capitalism for the little people in this country. Bear Stearns gets a $30 Billion bailout courtesy of the taxpayers. Socialism for the rich, the “discipline of the market” for the poor. Tat's the GOP. The hypocrisy of the republican ilk speaks for itself and is self-discrediting.

The GOP have turned Big Business into a deregulated, lawless jungle, just like they did throughout the 1920's. This lead us into the Great Depression-another republican mess that the Dems cleaned up-and they are leading us right into another deep recession, or worse.

They never learn, do they?

David Crowley Sucks

at 3:45 PM, March 20, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

The surge has worked? No it hasn't. It seams that all of the right wingers have forgotten about the the goal of the surge; it was supposed to give the Iraqi government 'breathing room' so they could bring about reconciliation and build a stable government.

That never happened. the Iraqi government has not made one bit of political progress. General Petreaus said the very same thing over the weekend.

The 'surge' has brought about a decrease in the violence, but it did so by bribing the Sunni militias. When the money ends, the violence will return.

at 5:33 PM, March 20, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Has the 'surge' worked? Of course it has. It's purpose was to get Iraq off the front pages long enough for Bush to slink out of town and hand his mess to the next president. Then he can sit in his cactus patch and whine that a Democrat ruined his war just as we were on the verge of victory. Mr. Wreck It & Run never takes responsibility for his actions and he's not going to break that habit with Iraq.

Greg Harris needs to Campaign to Replace Crowley by Blog Post by chiding namecallers and stating whether he believes reproductive choice continues to cost us lives.

2:35...ya wanna step outside to the parking lot,pal? libs blow.the city has been run by them for ages and where are we? Luken and city council allowed the African Americans to have their temper tantrum and people have been leaving in droves ever since.
And I thought if Issue 3 was overturned Cincinnati would be a magnet for the brilliant homosexuals who are the visionaries of most urban centers...well I'll be danged...didn't happen.

Once again Osama bin Crowley neglects doing his own job so he can pretend to be a member of Congress. No wonder this city is so poorly run by its Democratic leaders.

Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer came to town on a $1000 breakfast fund raiser. Turnout was good. Lots of liberals (who seem to enjoy the fruits of the free market system) were there. Are the Dems now the party of the rich??
