I mean, the Democrats are insistent on snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Nancy & Harry proclaimed earlier this week that the surge was "a failure." While they just a few weeks ago surprisingly agreed to give Chimpy W. McBushitler until September to implement the new strategery, the moonbats (aka Democratic Primary Voters) have forced their hand on the matter.
This Breitbart article has the details.
As many had forseen, the escalation has failed to produce the intended results," the two leaders wrote.
"The increase in US forces has had little impact in curbing the violence or fostering political reconciliation.
Of course, reality in Iraq bears no resemblance and has no impact on the reality in Washington. From an excellent post on Protein Wisdom (read the whole thing), here's the key information:
So the failed operation has reduced deaths by 33% in its main theater of operations, and reduced deaths by around 8% overall, with the current monthly level about 40% of what it was when the operation started. That’s some failure.
As we've pointed out several times, the biggest challenge for Chimpy W. McBushitler isn't necessarily the military operation in Iraq (he has excellent soldiers, from the grunts to the Generals to do that). No, his biggest challenge is forcing the MSM and the Dems to admit that something is working. Unfortunately, communication and persuasion are not key strengths of the Bush Presidency.
And I suppose that it's too much to ask for the Dems to at least shut their mouth for 6 months to a year. Can I question their patriotismTM yet?
