In attendence were assorted faculty members, students, and local Newark moonbats, or "peaceniks," as they liked to be called. More than one person reminisced about the days of protesting Vietnam during the Q&A period. Lots of Marixism all around. More on that later. - Ryan
This statement sums up Ryan's dismisive take ont he whole thing. Ryan has often expressed his fondess for this war and his irritation at leftists media types and academics trying to ruin his good fun by playing the facts card all the time. All in all Ryan's major concern is that people who oppose the war are kind of full of themselves. In Ryan's little peanut brain this thought is playing on an endless loop: "Moonbats think the war is bad, SO the war must be good."
Well Mike M
calls him out in the comments. It seems the only thing good to come out of the war were the million-dollar contracts for multinational corporations like Halliburton et. al. It's war-profiteering all the way, and if that term "offends" you, then I suggest you dissect it. "War profiteering."
Ryan, face it. Though those moonbats are certainly annoying, the major gist of their arguments (minus the ridiculous anti-Israel dreck) are correct. Iraq is a hellhole now. You know it. And you'd just be acting a blind Sean Hannity-lite cheerleading for this pathetic administration if you don't come out and admit it.
Ryan' response to that.....
