Democrat Boat Taking On Water


The 'titanic' [sic] effort by the left and democrat party to lose the war in Iraq and thus label George W Bush the "worst President ever" has hit a major iceberg.

In part II of his series "Worst President Ever", research professor Engram at his Back Talk blog reminds those on the left of another catchy phrase... "don't count your chickens before they're hatched".

Engram points out...
Here is an "analysis" from the left that appears on page 1 of today's Washington Post:
The war in Iraq seems to have taken a turn for the better and the opposition at home has failed in all efforts to impose its own strategy. North Korea is dismantling its nuclear program. The budget deficit is falling. A new attorney general has been confirmed despite objections from the left.
The article goes on to say that Bush's approval ratings have not yet improved, but the dramatic change in Iraq is still a new development, and people are not yet sure that it will last. Moreover, because of the media we have, Americans don't appreciate the fact that we have apparently won a dramatic victory over al Qaeda, which was directly responsible for the massive increase in violence that occurred there. If this secret ever gets out, and if violence remains low, Bush's numbers will improve. More importantly, his historical standing will be greatly solidified.

Here is another analysis from the left (the pretty far left). The author is described like this:

Robert Dreyfuss is an independent investigative journalist in Alexandria, Virginia. He is a regular contributor to Rolling Stone, The Nation, The American Prospect, Mother Jones, and the Washington Monthly.

Those are some serious left wing credentials, so I think it is fair to say that he has special insight into the left wing mind. And this is what he has to say about that style of thinking:

All in all, violence in Iraq has dropped precipitously since late summer. With Al Qaeda declared dead, former Sunni resistance fighters wearing American-supplied uniforms, and the Mahdi Army lying low, killings in Iraq are way down. The security situation in Iraq is far better than it's been at any time since 2005. Many American antiwar critics, who are invested in the notion that no good news can come out of Iraq and who (secretly or openly) revel in the Bush administration's Iraqi failures, are reluctant to admit that things are getting better.

Perhaps they worry that, if the situation in Iraq improves, the prospect of Democratic gains at the polls next November will diminish. Perhaps they've convinced themselves that Iraq's ethnic and sectarian divide is so enormous that partition is the only solution, and that Iraq doesn't deserve to be a country anyway. Perhaps their distaste for President Bush (which I share) is so all-consuming that they fear any improvement in the situation will be credited to the President -- something they can't tolerate.

If so, that's perverse.

That it is. But that's the much diminished and very sad condition of today's left (which, in a bygone era, was motivated by much worthier ideals)."

It's very clear that the big boat is taking on water and the democrats are rearranging the drapes.. errr deck chairs, ...while the band plays on.

How committed are they to defeat in Iraq? Totally and completely.
In spite of all of the stories about success and good things coming out of Iraq... Soonerthought runs to the Guardian for a steaming plate of defeat. Brilliant !

MEMO TO LEFTWING ANTI-WAR BLOGGERS
...

Now would be a good time to not panic, but start looking for one of the exit signs and work your way to the nearest life boat or dingy.
Pansy liberals first please, but women and children fear not... the democrats will send a boat back for you real soon.
Right after they take a poll, debate, plan, raise taxes, get environmental impact estimate and build one.

Lets watch to see the shifting democrat position as this news catches up to them.

Oddly, though, ticket sales to board the Dem. Titanic are up...

The banning of icebergs is next in their warped playbook.

According to the liberals... there are no icebergs left... which explains how they ran right over the top of a big one and ripped a hole in the bottom of their little boat.
