The Defeatist Democrats

The Defeatist Democrats
New York Sun Editorial

After months of denying that they were about to cut off funding for the troops or impose a rigid timeline for a withdrawal from Iraq, the Democrats in Congress are about to do just that.

It's not entirely surprising for those who lived through the Vietnam War and have watched with dismay the isolationist drift of the Democratic Party, particularly its congressional wing identified with George McGovern, since then. What is surprising, though, is what our Eli Lake is reporting are to be the triggers for an American retreat.

Mr. Lake reports that the bill being proposed by the Democrats in the House would impose a retreat by Americ if Iraqis fail to attain such targets as "the repeal of a de-Baathification law and the passage of a plan to share the country's oil revenues."

Yeah, I hope the guy doesn't mind--at least I attributed as best I could.

The proposed bill follows a time-honored Democrat prescription for failure -- micromanagement. That kind of idiocy sure did us well in 'Nam and now they're doing it again. If only fools fail to learn from history, then only fools repeat history.

If Bush and Cheney supported their football team they way they support our brave men and women's effort in Iraq, they would be bragging about winning before the game even started. They would send them onto the field without helmets or shoulder pads. Their starting lineup would only be 7 players instead of 11 and the quarterback would be forced to make up plays during the huddle because no one planned for anything other than the kickoff.

That's not how the football players feel, les ismore--only the DEMS.
