I was working last night when democratic candidates for President of the United States debated on MSNBC. However, I was able to catch a few sound bites and from what I heard and was able to read on the Internet, all the major democratic candidates for President would not agree to pull troops out of Iraq during their first term as President. Wow, I can't believe that these major democratic candidates for President are saying exactly the same thing President Bush has been saying for over four (4) years. The only major difference is that the major democratic candidates for President want President Bush to pull the troops out of Iraq now, so he will be blamed for the disastrous consequences of such a stupid decision and more importantly they will not be faced with the same choices he is facing, right now, if one of them is lucky enough to win voters support next November and become the next President of the United States.
A few months ago I would have thought that Democrats had an excellent chance to win the White House in 2008. However, with each passing day the rhetoric I hear from candidates like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards on the Iraq War are causing me to think twice about that possibility. Ever since last Novembers election sweep by Democrats in the Congress, I have heard little else except that they credit their victory in that election to the American people's desire to see U.S. troops pulled out of Iraq at the earliest possible date. However, when push comes to shove, none of the major democratic candidates for president will even commit to a U.S. troop pull out of Iraq during their first term in office as President. Do these candidates know how stupid they really look to the American people? Probably not!
What is really happening here is that President Bush is running circles around these liberal politicians that are running for President on the democratic ticket. In reality, most Republicans and Democrats understand that the United States must win the war in Iraq, but in fairness most democratic candidates for President would accept a U.S. defeat if they could saddle that defeat around the neck of President Bush. Unlike, far left wing nuts - most of the candidates that have a chance to win the nomination and face the Republicans next November understand all to well that the American people, while very angry at President Bush, DO NOT want defeat in Iraq. It really doesn't matter who is elected President of the United States in 2008 when it comes to the War in Iraq. U.S. troops are going to stay in that country for decades and when all is said and done, Iraq will be a major turning point in the war against terrorism, worldwide.
