White Flag Democrats

by Max Boot - November 30, 2005 - Los Angeles Times
And the Democrats wonder why they are considered weak on national security? It's not because anyone doubts their patriotism. It's because a lot of people doubt their judgment and toughness.

As if to prove the skeptics right, Democrats have been stepping forth to renounce their previous support for the liberation of Iraq even as Iraqis prepare to vote in a general election. Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, John Edwards, John Murtha — that's quite a list of heavyweight flip-floppers.

Clinton characteristically wants to have it both ways. He says the invasion was a "big mistake" but that we shouldn't pull out now because "there's a lot of evidence it can still work." (You mean, Mr. President, that we should continue sacrificing soldiers for a mistake?)

Actually, there are a lot of us who are starting to doubt the patriotism of democrats. There is clear evidence that a great number of them are so committed to socialism, that the destruction of our form of government is preferred to the continuation of capitalism which they so abhor.

When are the patriotic democrats going to stop aligning themselves with people who are committed to our destruction?
