The Code Pinkos and nutroots will have foaming mouthfuls to say about this:

The enormity of the military conflict in Iraq was spelled out in the simplest of all admissions tonight:

Among all of the leading Democratic candidates for president, none was willing to commit to a promise in a campaign debate that all of the U.S. combat forces deployed in Iraq will be gone by 2013, the end of the next president’s term in office.

“It’s hard to project four years from now,” said Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, at the start of a debate of the Democratic candidates in Hanover, N.H.

“”It is very difficult to know what we’re going to be inheriting,” said Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, who has vowed that if President Bush has not ended the war in Iraq by the time the next president takes office, “I will.’’

“”I cannot make that commitment,” said former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, answering the question posed in a televised debate in the state that will hold the first of the presidential primary elections in January.

‘What I heard tonight was, even at the end of their terms the war will not end,” said Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, promising to bring the troops home as president.

“”It’s important for candidates for president to tell the American people not just what they want to hear, but what they need to hear,” Obama said.


The moonbats are back again in Washington this weekend for another anti-war, surrender-now rally. They’ve been amassing a week-long “Encampment” in front of Congress.

Perhaps they should move it in front of the DNC.


Ed Morrissey gives credit where credit is due:

How far has General David Petraeus moved the debate on Iraq? His testimony on the surge, and the effects of the surge itself, has made it much more difficult for Democrats to argue for withdrawal and defeat…

Yes. His testimony…and our troops’ blood, toil, tears and sweat.

Americans don’t like to lose wars, and given the successes that Petraeus has generated, more Americans see an opportunity to persevere in Iraq. Leading Democrats realize now that running as the party of defeat when we continue to gain ground may sound good in the primaries, but will be disastrous in the general election

Maybe that White Flag wasn’t such a terrific prop after all, eh?
