"We should be supporting our troops as they are succeeding, not finding ways to undercut their mission,"—Tony Fratto, White House spokesmanAgainst the wishes of their rank and file members Democrat leaders are once again advancing a hair-brained scheme meant to signal to their radical code pink, moveon.org constituency that they are worthy of higher polling numbers than the sub-Bush numbers they currently suffer from.
Rank-and-file Democrats expressed dismay on Friday over their party's latest anti-war strategy, with some members reluctant to vote around Veterans Day to bring troops home.--Anne FlahertyWisely the rank and file doesn’t want to be associated with manipulating and play politics with U.S. troops so close to the Veteran’s day holiday but atlas such wisdom is wasted on Democrat Leaders Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha who have cooked up another “cut and run scenario” bill all dressed up as an incremental troop redeployment measure tied to war funding so that Democrats can report to their radical fringe that they attempted to stop the war. (That should raise their low poll numbers.)
Whew! Sounds complicated but wait until you hear how Nancy Pelosi attempted to explain a similar failed March 2007 attempt to set benchmarks on a video link that I’ve provided.
If this is the way Democrats reward success I’d hate to see what they do to failure.
That’s right the President’s surge is a rousing success and violence has been down in Iraq going on 2 months. No thanks to “The War is Lost” Democrat Senator Harry Reid and “We can’t win, bring the troops home” Democrat Congressman John Murtha.
Leading journalists have been reporting for some time that the war was hopeless, a fiasco that could not be salvaged by more troops and a new counterinsurgency strategy. The conventional wisdom in December held that sending more troops was politically impossible after the antiwar tenor of the midterm elections. It was practically impossible because the extra troops didn't exist. Even if the troops did exist, they could not make a difference.That’s right! We are winning and the war is not lost. Not only that the surge is so successful that generals are planning on actual surge reversals.
Four months later, the once insurmountable political opposition has been surmounted. The nonexistent troops are flowing into Iraq. And though it is still early and horrible acts of violence continue, there is substantial evidence that the new counterinsurgency strategy, backed by the infusion of new forces, is having a significant effect.--Robert Kagan
The first big test of security gains linked to the U.S. troop buildup in Iraq is at hand. The military has started to reverse the 30,000-strong troop increase and commanders are hoping the drop in insurgent and sectarian violence in recent months—Robert BurnsSo why are the Democrats still attempting to sabotage the war effort?
Simple answer 2008 elections, Presidential and Congressional, what this eight year political battle has been about, establishing and legitimizing the Liberal agenda legally, politically and socially once and for all in the United States of America.
More Democrat wins mean a more activist judiciary,reversal of progress made on the Supreme Court, more government nanny state control and a liberal social ideology that will be forced on Conservative Americans. Conservatives, I might mention, who make up half of the electorate and voted George W. Bush into office twice.
A feat to be proud of in a Liberal dominated culture. The only problem is Bush didn’t fight for Conservativism like Liberals fight for Liberalism. It is that political negligence that has put Conservatives in the funk they are in now. (So vote for a “Real” Conservative this time! Duncan Hunter are you doing anything for 2008?)
Because of that Conservative funk Democrats are depending upon a dispirited Republican Party to allow them to take control of this entire government and wreak havoc on it much like what prevails presently in the Senate and the House of Representatives in Congress. (That is not going to happen!)
In a March 8, 2007 press conference called to explain the Democrat original plan to de-fund the war, if the President didn't acquiesce to their demands of cut and run, Democrats had a very difficult time explaining just how their plan would have worked. (See 8min attempt to explain it by Murtha and Pelosi)
It seems that a reporter thought that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi explanation of the bench mark plan was unclear which interestingly forced repeated Nancy Pelosi frustrated attempts to explain her plan of sabotage of the U.S. war effort. Let’s hope the Democrat’s current effort is easier for them to explain!
At this point Conservatives and Independents have seen enough to realize that Democrats have jeopardized the safety and sovereignty of this Nation for going on sixteen years now, eight years under Democrat President Bill Clinton and eight years under George Bush. Both these groups of voters should now realize that awarding additional Congressional authority and or the White house to Democrats would be political and social disaster for this nation.
Just take a look at what they've done to Congress... Not good!
