Cut and Run

From uber-patriot, and lying liar, Bill O'Lielly:

Some people simply will not embrace freedom. We have millions of Americans in this country who are being abused one way or another and refuse to do anything about it. Freedom is never free. Freedom is hard.

The Bush administration must come to grips with the true character of Iraq and begin to change strategy. The safety of the American military must become the top priority. The interest of the Iraqis themselves second. Unlike Afghanistan (search), where the majority of people seem to be cooperating with America, the Iraqis lay back, perhaps traumatized by decades of Saddam's oppression.

Understandable, but not acceptable. If these people won't help us, we need to get out in an orderly manner. If, come next October, Iraq continues to be a big mess, President Bush might very well lose the election. Mr. Bush and his advisers must know that. And that's why there's still a chance that the Iraqi radicals will be beaten. But time is running out, both for Iraq and for the Bush administration.

I don't even know what the hell he's talking about in the 1st paragraph. Maybe we should abuse Mr. O'Lielly and see if he does something about it. But, he's basically saying that Bush should pull out of Iraq to win the election. Why does Bill O'Lielly hate freedom?
