House Majority Whip James Clyburn, a South Carolina Democrat, said Monday that if the progress report on Iraq due this September from General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker is generally positive, as appears of late to be the case, “that would be a real big problem for us.”
Are the Democrats so mired in their hatred for George Bush that winning the war in Iraq is a “big problem?” That their abhorrent, self-centered political ambitions and irrational loathing of Bush supersedes the vital interest of America winning the war in Iraq and radical Islamism is beyond belief and borders on sedition.
To paraphrase Mark Steyn, the Democrats who raise the white flag of surrender and believe that a failure in Iraq and the War on Terror in general will diminish George Bush and the so-called neo-cons, is to believe in the tooth fairy. The reality of the matter is that it will diminish all of us; this nation and all that we stand for.”
Like Goethe said, “Nothing is more terrible than ignorance in action.”
