All this time the Dems have been dancing around on the head of a pin trying to avoid admitting that failure in Iraq is their ultimate goal. Now we've got at least one Dem admitting that a positive report from Petraeus is gonna be a problem for the Dems. From House Majority Whip James Clyburn's own mouth...
Clyburn (D-S.C.) noted that Petraeus carries significant weight among the 47 members of the Blue Dog caucus in the House, a group of moderate to conservative Democrats. Without their support, he said, Democratic leaders would find it virtually impossible to pass legislation setting a timetable for withdrawal.
"I think there would be enough support in that group to want to stay the course and if the Republicans were to stay united as they have been, then it would be a problem for us," Clyburn said. "We, by and large, would be wise to wait on the report."
Many Democrats have anticipated that, at best, Petraeus and U.S. ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker would present a mixed analysis of the success of the current troop surge strategy, given continued violence in Baghdad. But of late there have been signs that the commander of U.S. forces might be preparing something more generally positive. Clyburn said that would be "a real big problem for us."
HELLO AMERICA - ARE YOU LISTENING?
The Dems are admitting that positive news from Iraq is bad news for the Dems. Many of us have been screaming this for years but no one would listen. Now it's out in the open. What are we going to do about it? At what point do we stand up and yell "treason" to these dirtbags? How can anyone possibly support slime that wants our country to lose a war just so they can grab the almighty political power?
Clyburn's admission that a troop withdrawal timetable is not dependent on the report - it's a given for the Dems - is another telling sign of the Dems complete Benedict Arnold transformation. They don't care about our country, our soldiers, our national security or our future. They just want the power. And they will crap on anything they can and stomp on anyone that stands in their way.
And God Forbid the media cover this like it really is. The WaPo couches it in such mildly ambiguous language... Positive Report by Petraeus Could Split House Democrats on War. The headline should read something like "Dems Power Dreams Could Be Smashed By Positive Reports From Iraq".
Shame on the Dems and those that stab our country in the back just for a seat in the Oval Office. Treasonous Pigs is too good a term for them...
