Slowly People Learn, but Learn They Do
Here's the deal about Iraq:
The US went into Iraq to protect the US and Iraq. Democritization of the region is just a plus. Being "weak on Iraq" means "weak on America" Despite other corruptions, the Republican government really doesnt use the armed forces except when American safety and interests are at stake. the "Bush lied" mantra doesnt work. The WMDs and nuclear aspirations were found and documented, even by the MSM.
ORSON SCOTT CARD has thoughts on the 2006 and 2008 elections:
I say this as a Democrat, for whom the Republican domination of government threatens many values that I hold to be important to America's role as a light among nations.
But there are no values that matter to me that will not be gravely endangered if we lose this war. And since the Democratic Party seems hellbent on losing it -- and in the most damaging possible way -- I have no choice but to advocate that my party be kept from getting its hands on the reins of national power, until it proves itself once again to be capable of recognizing our core national interests instead of its own temporary partisan advantages.
To all intents and purposes, when the Democratic Party jettisoned Joseph Lieberman over the issue of his support of this war, they kicked me out as well. The party of Harry Truman and Daniel Patrick Moynihan -- the party I joined back in the 1970s -- is dead. Of suicide.
