The Democrats Have a New "Big" Problem

[1] [2] [3]

When the dust had settled and the debris from the Twin Towers disaster had been removed, a movement began to undermine the War effort in Iraq. All the Democrat aspirants to the White House and the major players in the Democrat controlled Senate and the House began carping about the failures in Iraq. We can't win, we are loosing, time to bring the troops home and more such tripe was seen and heard every night on TV and radio. People like Congressman Murtha furthered the attack, and said the Bush war was not winnable. Fast forward to today, and we find that Democrats and RINO's are trying to force withdrawal by withholding funds to support the war effort. The "un-winnable" war was a big campaign issue for most Democrats, and then the worst display of unpatriotic behavior occurred when General Petraeus spoke to Congress on the progress his troops were making in Iraq. Senator Hillary Clinton claimed he was lying, and the sycophants over at MoveOn.org. referred to the General as "General Betray Us"! Well, Mr. Murtha just returned from a trip to Iraq , and it would appear he has seen the light of Truth. The following staement may be a problem for the Iraq anti-war zealots. The following is a quote from Instapundit.com, as written by Glenna Reynolds. "Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), one of the leading anti-war voices in the House Democratic Caucus, is back from a trip to Iraq and he now says the "surge is working." This could be a huge problem for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democratic leaders, who are blocking approval of the full $200 billion being sought by President Bush for combat operations in Iraq in 2008. Murtha's latest comments are also a stark reversal from what he said earlier in the year. . . . Pelosi, who is scheduled to speak to a Democratic National Committee event in Virginia on Friday, will surely face tough questions from reporters regarding Murtha's statement on the surge. "This could be a real headache for us," said one top House Democratic aide, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "Pelosi is going to be furious." This is a stark reversal of opinion as expressed by Congressman Murtha earlier this year. The Pennsylvania Democrat, who chairs the powerful Defense subcommittee on the House Appropriations Committee, has previously stated that the surge "is not working" and the United States faced a military disaster in Iraq. Murtha told CNN on July 12, following a Bush speech, that the president's views on the success of surge in Iraq were "delusional." "Well it's delusional to say the least," Murtha told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "As I said earlier, and you heard me say it, it's a failed policy wrapped in illusion. Nothing's gotten better. Incidents have increased. We have had more Americans killed in the last four months than any other period during the war." Murtha added: "I don't acknowledge there has been any progress made. Maybe in Baghdad. But it just breaks out someplace else. We called for extra troops two years ago. We put money in for 30,000 troops. They haven't even been able to raise the 30,000 troops they have. So they have to break all their guidelines. But there's no progress being made." Murtha even yelled at a reporter during a recent press conference, telling the reporter that the news coming out of the Pentagon regarding Iraq is not believable. "They don't need to do the things -- you're missing the point -- because the Pentagon says it, you believe it?," Murtha yelled. "You believe what the Pentagon says? Huh? With all the things that they have told us, you believe what -- I mean, go back and look -- 'mission accomplished,' al Qaeda connection, weapons of mass destruction, on and on and on, and you believe the Pentagon?" Seeing is believing, and I compliment Congressman Murtha for his conversion, but the damage he did to the men in "Country" fighting an idealog enemy was something I am sure many people in uniform will never forget. It is not over yet by a long shot, but we are gaining ground on Our enemy, and Victory is possible and surrender is not an option for true Americans.
