The Democrats are falling all over themselves trying to one-up each other for the best idea to bring about concrete defeat in Iraq and to do it under the guise of being the one party that's really concerned about the welfare of the troops. Henry Waxman even used the word "defeat," and he did it in the past tense, i.e., not just that it's a foregone conclusion, but that it's already happened.
These are the same people who wished General Petreaus Godspeed on his new mission, and who have refrained from removing money where their mouth is. By not withholding funds to fight the war they claim is lost, It's tantamount to saying, "We lost, but don't quit dying yet because we still support that."
Of course, Obama said what he meant when he told a crowd that our soldiers' lives have been wasted, but here's something to consider when you think about that and everything else these traitors are saying and doing:
They all now have a vested interest in bringing about that for which they've gone on the record. B.O., for example, needs now to always be able to show that lives have been wasted, for if by some miracle, we did something over there that the public might construe as success, where would that leave Barack-O?
The same goes for the rest of this miserable bunch. Where would a turnaround leave any Democrat but Lieberman? So instead of them being in prison, they will continue to tout more creative ways to insure that defeat is irreversible, and to guarantee that America is not just humiliated, but that it's hobbled.in its future dealings with friend and foe.
Oh, and let's never forget those Republicans who are now working toward similar ends, even if they'd never have done it had the Jackasses not provided the cover..
Now I hate to end on an even more negative note, but let's also not forget that George Bush left the door ajar to all of this. Had he communicated with us regularly an properly, and continually impressed upon us the seriousness of the mission and our progress, had he fought the war as it should have been fought, had he immediately fired anyone who kept us from achieving our goals, and had he confronted the Dems head-on and forcefully, he… well… he probably would never have had to do the latter if he'd done all of the former.
