The Democrats' Dilemma

Investors Business Daily has a hard-hitting editorial denouncing the Congressional Democrats and their "slow bleed" strategy. It begins:

> The party of John Murtha shamelessly seeks to defund and defeat U.S. troops on the battlefield and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The Congress the terrorists wanted is doing their bidding.

And that's not the hard-hitting part! More important, IBD has a poll that highlights the danger the Democrats face:

The Democrats evidently believe that November's election was a mandate for them to lose in Iraq, but that's not how most Americans see it. In the end, how much the image above matters probably depends on events on the ground. If things go from pretty bad to worse in Iraq, the Democrats may not pay a price for their defeatism. (Of course, the "slow bleed" strategy is designed to ensure that that happens.) On the other hand, if the "surge" continues to produce results, and the voters' optimism grows, the Democrats could find themselves dangerously at odds with the public's mood.
