Rourke Pledges Support To Bush

MICKEY ROURKE has pledged his support for US President GEORGE W BUSH's controversial foreign policy in Iraq. The SIN CITY actor, who is famed for being for being outspoken, has come forward as one of the few stars to support the war on terror. The former boxer says, "George is doing a hell of a job during very difficult times, more power to him. Screw all them people who don't like him."

Yea, who can't support a policy that requires GIs to go on patrol, hoping to be shot at...so they can then return fire?It's no longer an insurgency, it's flat-out chaos. The troops over there DO NOT want to be there...despite the staged interviews that indicate otherwise. All you chicken-hawks should volunteer...there's always a need for fresh meat when we define success by body-count.For the record: I'm an Air Force retiree (20 years), and a card-carrying Republican. My old unit has been over there since the invasion.

I learned how to spank-down anti-war liberals the other day, thanks to Laura Ingraham, listening to her.(I love Laura more than Apple Butter, btw.....)Firstly, I loved Mickey, and His work, and I don't know why before He got any real recognition....when I saw Barfly, that was it. That guy is Golden.For Him standing-up stateing what He's said takes balls. I hope it doesn't create problems for His acting career? My bet is, it won't.Now, as far as Laura's show; Monday she used the words Head Loppers, and I expounded on a saying anyone can use against anti-War Liberals; "So, I can put you down as a Pro-Head Lopper then, okay?"

"Republicans don't care about the poor people,their only concern is how to satisfy the fat cat donors that throw the thousands their way for their campaigns."Are you so brainwashed that you really think Dems give a d@mn about poor people & don't care about fat cat donors like Moveon.org. "making threats against countries who are doing NOTHING to us."I guess you'd rather wait for another 9/11 to happen. I'd prefer it if we could prevent it myself. I can just see it if another 9/11 did happen. You liberals would be bitching about "why didn't he do anything!" Well, you bitched & moaned when he tried!The fact is, nothing he does will ever be good enough for you. You just can't get over your oh-so-important hatred for Bush.

"Hey..Slackjaw, if that is the case what of the Idiots that too us there with bad Intel "Whose bad intelligence? Clinton thought Iraq had WMD way back in 1998. The UN had 13 Resolutions for over 10 years telling Saddam to get rid of WMD and banned weapons. Germany, France and Russia all thought he had them too.So, were we supposed to ignore all the stuff that said he had them?Oh, BTW, you might want to realize that "bad intel" does NOT constitute a lie!And, if it was a lie, then the UN wasted a LOT of time harassing a dictator when they KNEW he didn't have those banned weapons! I think they have better things to do.Ever thought of that? No, I guess not. Liberals so brainwashed by their hatred they aren't able to think for themselves.

Excellent. I was just thinking about 'Barfly' and how much I enjoyed that film so long ago. I'm particularly glad that Rourke specified that he supported the President's foreign policy and not domestic policy. Refreshing to know that not every single actor and musician supports dhimmitude.

what the...?'s picture

what the...?

under normal circumstances i wouldn't express my annoyance to such kind of statements. Mickey is one of my favourite actors though and i really-for real-i cannot understand,i cant imagine how on earth did he "act" like this!!!he IS a FINE actor to me why do this????i regarded mickey as a much-much more sensitive and fair-minded man....Honestly he let me down and i dont find the reason why.Now i could say a whole lot more (oh yeah!) but i won't for fear being misunderstood.??????????oh and greetings to libanese people...
