Andrew Breitbart on General Petraeus

Andrew Breitbart speaks for many of us in this Washington Times article, in which he summarizes the horrors of the first 60 days of the Obamanation, 'fesses up to his justifiable alarm and longs for a truly heroic American President:

I can't wrap my head around the fact that the commander in chief tried (for a minute anyway) to require injured warriors to pay to have private insurers take care of their treatment. I can't get out of my head that the leader of the free world gave the British prime minister 25 films on DVD that don't even work in U.K. machines.

I can't believe the president would allow the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to dictate the terms of his budget - and Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd, the symbols of government kowtowing to Wall Street - to be spokesmen for his financial bailout.

And did President Obama really produce a YouTube video to appease President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the mullahs of Iran?

Yes, he did.

These aren't beginner's mistakes. These are his core incompetencies.

The media that got him elected knows it is responsible for the gathering debacle, and so Jon Stewart, a so-called comedian and exemplar of the groupthink of the governing elite, is desperately hunting for scapegoats. Now that their secular savior is in charge, the "Dissent is Patriotic" bumper-sticker crowd is figuring out ways to stamp out criticism.

I admit, I am now officially freaking out. (emphasis mine)

The last time I felt this hopeless was when the Democratic Party and its cohorts in the media sold us on the false premise that we lost the war in Iraq. In the process, they also sought to demonize the very man that led us out of our peril.
His name is
Gen. David H. Petraeus.

Breitbart goes on to express his hope for a "political surge" in which the stalwart, courageous and honorable veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom make a successful run for Congress in 2010, thus paving the way for America's greatest modern-day war hero to assume the duties of the Oval Office in 2012. From his lips to God's ears, I pray.

And just as a reminder of how low we've sunk in this country, the woman who excoriated the man responsible for the success of the surge -- Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton -- came thisclose to beating Obama in the Democrat primaries, and would've most likely defeated "her friend" John McCain in the General Election. Though humiliated by a media that valued skin color over gender in 2008, in the end, Hillary was rewarded for her despicable efforts to discredit a genuine patriot and war hero with an appointment to Secretary of State.

Great work, Baby Boomers! (I realize I am lumping in a lot of good people in that statement, including Mark and Doc Paul, but to paraphrase Hildabeast, I think y'all know what I'm talkin' about!).
