Dems Have No Shame Or Conscience
Wednesday's Democrat debate no doubt bitterly disappointed many in the liberal base: None of their leading presidential candidates would pledge to withdraw from Iraq if elected.
"It is very difficult to know what we're going to be inheriting," reasoned Hillary Rodham Clinton. "I think it's hard to project four years from now," said Barack Obama. "I cannot make that commitment," added John Edwards.
Yet in the meantime, these very same people are trying to do all they can to take us out while Bush is in office.
The reason behind their thinking is easy enough see. Democrats know all too well that a withdrawal would mean an ignominious defeat for the United States for which they would never take personal responsibility. At the same time, however, they would not mind at all if the defeat occurred under George W. Bush. In their economy, such an outcome would translate to their advantage, because it would seriously damage not only Bush but also Republicans at large. This in turn could translate into substantial electoral gains in the upcoming election cycle.
Think about what this means. Democrats would welcome America's defeat as long as it would result in their own political gain. Never mind that by suffering such a defeat America's standing in the world would receive a tremendous blow. Never mind that the thousands of brave American lives would have been lost in vain. Never mind that the subsequent slaughter would claim hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives. And never mind that our defeat would give Al Qaeda an unprecedented boost and a new base to operate from.
All this Democrats would happily allow to happen as long as the fall-out would redoubt to their benefit.
The degree to which these people are willing to play politics with the lives of their fellow citizens and their country's reputation and national security is breath-taking. They truly have no shame and apparently no conscience either.
Let everyone behold their disgusting spectacle. Let everyone behold American liberals.
