John Edwards gets creative, calls ‘War on Terror’ a ‘Bumper Sticker’ slogan

Good one, John Edwards! How creative!

Calling President George Bush’s proclamation of a war on terror just a “bumper sticker” slogan was sheer brilliance. Thanks for displaying such great intestinal fortitude…such vision, such wisdom.

You’re done! If that is all you got, you are hurting. Your campaign is over.

Perhaps you better try a different strategery!

John Edwards Calls War on Terror Bush’s ‘Bumper Sticker’ Slogan

NEW YORK — Democratic White House hopeful John Edwards, in a major foreign policy speech Wednesday, minimized the Bush administration’s War on Terror as nothing more than a “bumper sticker slogan” used to justify the war in Iraq and “bludgeon political opponents.”

“It is now clear that George Bush’s misnamed ‘War on Terror’ has backfired — and is now part of the problem,” Edwards told the Council of Foreign Relations in New York. “The War on Terror is a slogan designed only for politics, not a strategy to make America safe. It’s a bumper sticker, not a plan.”

Edwards proposed foreign policy changes from the direction taken by the Bush administration, calling on Congress not to back down to White House pressure for a bill to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan without requiring a timetable for withdrawing U.S. forces. Congressional leaders said Tuesday that they are close to a deal that would fund the wars without a timetable for withdrawal.

  1. I’m sorry to say, I agree with Mr. Edwards. None of the excuses that where used to occupy Iraq have turned out to be true. None have yielded positive results. The amount of resources being consumed is absurd and unnecessary.

    Leaving a fragile government which could be overthrown at any minute and substituted by what was found previously or worse. This is not Bush’s idea of a good exit strategy. Yet, what are his options? Enough is enough.
