What kind of shameless fool can speak of Churchil & Bush in the same breath - especially when describing the latter as a "grownup"?

Gee, and I thought it would be the conservatives who would be mad about this one because of the quasi-prediction of an Obama victory!

Interestingly enough, the comparison is very close.

My recollection is Winston Churchill led a number of military blunders throughout his career in the British Government. Winston also had a penchant for making remarks that were less than "civilized".

Both, led & lead unpopular charges against brutal and illiberal ideologies, instead people want to ignore the problem in hopes it goes away.

Who does this sound more like W or Obama? Winston or Hillary?
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
