Daily Deliberation #6

Are the Democrats overplaying the "get out of Iraq" card?

No. Old Media is still powerful and compliant enough to bury mistaken statements, and no GOP candidate will dredge it up. I agree with Strategy Page that the Democratic Congressmen are playing it well, drifting in a place where they can get credit for "questioning" if things go wrong and not defunding the troops if things go well.

It's too far from an election to matter one way or the other.

I continue to hope they'll be caught flatfooted despite the cover provided by the media. The NYT was exposed as a player just last week, so they and their co-conspirators may be a little gun shy in the future. Wishful thinking probably, but unless there's another WTC before the election, what else do we have?

They remind me of the Republicans in the World War II years, only worse.

They are so heavily invested in defeat that if they do win, they would be hamstrung.

I forget which backbench senator gave the response to Bush, and all I heard was a sound bite of his opening line, but it was revealing. Something about two possibilities: defeat or continuing war.

Doesn't matter anyway. Iraq is not a crucial battlefield. Eventually we'll go asymetric on 'em and it will be over.
