Senator and Presidential candidate Barack Obama has decided he wants the troops out of Iraq and he wants them to begin leaving immediately. He has proposed legislation that embraces losing in Iraq:
Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, a Democratic presidential hopeful, joined two House members in proposing a measure to block Bush from implementing his planned troop increase, and to begin a withdrawal by May 1, with all combat brigades out by March 31, 2008.
Not only that, but Senator John Kerry has decided that all hope is lost in Iraq. Freedom and the Iraqi people are not worth fighting for:
"The only people who believe there is a workable military solution for the conflict in Iraq is the Bush administration," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., in announcing legislation that would require Bush to "complete the redeployment" of American troops within a year.
Senator Obama, Senator Kerry and the rest of the Democrats have declared the Americans to be losers and handed victory to the terrorists!
Even the media seem to be shocked by this and are stating that the Democrats are the ones attempting to undermine the war effort. (Like the media had nothing to do with it???)
Apart from legislation, Democrats have embarked on an effort to undermine public support for the war by holding numerous hearings.
Wouldn't it be great if the Democrats actually embraced winning as quickly as they embrace losing?
