Tell Me Again What The Last Election Was About?

September 6th, 2007at 11:55am Posted by Eli

So let me get this straight: The lesson the Democratic leadership learned from their colossal failure in July is that they didn’t compromise enough???

Apparently they have forgotten (if indeed they ever understood) that the goal is to END THE WAR, not to pass a bill for the sake of passing a bill. Is it really better to pass a useless bill than to fail to pass a substantive one? What do we really gain?

All a toothless compromise does is blur the already fuzzy line between the Out Of Iraq Party and the Iraq Forever Party. The Republicans end up getting to look more anti-war, and the Democrats end up looking more pro-war, as we head into an election that will be largely decided by the American people’s disgust with…. the war.

Our feckless “leadership” doesn’t even have the courage to stand up for the vast majority of the American people against an epically unpopular president and his epically unpopular war. They are giving the GOP cover at their own expense, and getting nothing in return for it.

If the Democrats cannot remember why they won the last election, they will not win the next one.
