Dems Call for Iraq Surrender
Republicans can stop spending our campaign funds, close down our election operations and spend the summer at home. Democrats are GIVING us the election this year. In a pair of Senate bills today, Dems called for America to admit defeat in Iraq and cede the field to al Qaeda and their friends. Of course, both measures failed. But does anyone doubt that Dems will now be known for having only one alternative Iraq strategy to the president's, and that is giving up and coming home? So far, every time they speak on Iraq they parrot one of two messages: the president has no plan, or we ought to pull out. Hillary Clinton is especially lame, criticizing the administration's lack of a good Iraq strategy then, in the next breath, saying the most radical of today's proposal's (John Kerry's, naturally) is not much of a strategy either. Does the "New York" senator have any ideas of her own? Of course not. She's trying to navigate that perilous course on the left known as "moderation." Taking any specific position would only lose her votes in the 2008 election. Best to be vague and negative while your less pragmatic comrades bury themselves. Still not a very good strategy for actually winning. And why should the Dems get back control of any portion of government? They're in service to our enemies!
