ruminations & ramblings on life, politics, the arts, politics in the arts & world events by a republican actress
"Because things get difficult, you don't cut and run!"
Answer on Friday, or sooner.
Alex I'll take world politics for 100 - Who is Colin Powell in reference to Somalia?
Answer: the comment was made by every Republican who has run for office since the start of the Iraq war.
BCF: Uhhh.. nope.Dave: Diiiing...wrong. well, maybe some have said that, but not who I'm quoting.
I'm going to guess that it was Lindon B. Johnson about Vietnam.
According to Google, BCF was entirely correct. And while it's a statement any of could have made to a double's partner while losing a match during a regular weekly tennis game, one would suppose that you're looking for an answer featuring someone famous about a possibly notorious situation. So if it's not Colin Powell, I'm going to guess Richard Jeni, because I am known for my incredibly poor taste.
Sorry Papa J and Bert B.....:-)nope and nope.
Apologies to BCF, it *was* Colin Powell who apparently said that, (just did some googling of my own Bert B). BUT the programme I was watching, on National Geographic channel had Bill Clinton quote the phrase. The way the film was edited, it sounded as if it was something Bill came up with. Point being, he said it, as if he believed it, which totally surprised me. Guess I will post my answer post.Should have known google would have the right answer. :-)
Do I get a prize?
well... sure, name it!
Hmmm that will require some deep thought.
