Just Don't Root Against Us

I don't mind people who still question whether we did the right thing by going into Iraq. I wondered about it as well, when we did it. Despite the lack of mass quantities of WMD found (I use this term b/c we did find WMD, just not the stockpiles the media insists we should have), I think we made the best decision given the information at the time.

But despite reasonable questioning and discussion to improve our situation, I am so tired of the Left (and that means, primarily, Democrats) rooting against us. The Left did this in Vietnam, and they are doing it again.

The Left's leaders openly proclaim that we will not achieve victory in Iraq. Although they usually qualify it with "I support the troops" they are back to calling our troops baby killers and war criminals, and criticizing their integrity and mission all over again.

The latest example of "rooting for defeat" is not even capable of being hidden by the "I support the troops" recorded message. This week, the House of Representatives took a vote on a resolution to state the House's "Commitment to Achieve Victory In Iraq."

It passed 279-109. Yep. 109 voted "no."

Commie Bernie Sanders and 108 Democrats (no Republicans) voted against the commitment to achieve victory in Iraq. They are willing, yay even happy, to lose. That was their vote. Only 59 Democrats voted in favor of the resolution, so 65% of the Democrats in the House who weren't too chickenshit to vote (32 Dems and 2 Reps voted "Present") are against commiting to achieving victory in a war the U.S. is waging in Iraq.

It is one thing to seek a better policy and disagree. It is another to openly root against your own country, especially when it is on a moral mission with a moral goal.

I am disgusted.

Maybe they really don't like their country and do want us to lose. I say this because I doubt it is all just politics. To me that seems like a political loser.

Or maybe they are just consumed with hatred of Bush.

Here's hoping that "Nay" will nail Tammy Baldwin's political coffin shut. But it probably won't.

I didn't see the text of the resolution, but if it's simple, this should be a no-brainer. There's probably no way to bring those 109 up on charges of treason, though it seems fitting.

You used moral and Democrat in the same sentence.

Spineless weenies.

We are there, we stay the course. I am thinking that if the Iraqis themselves want us out, one of two things will happen: They will either step up the insurgency and usher in Armageddon, or they will get along and we can take our
people and toys and go home.

Rooting for defeat is now viewed as patriotism. I missed the memo on how this happened.
