Walking Away A Winner?

by Dean Barnett - May 30th, 2008 - The Wall Street Journal

Regarding Iraq, this week saw the disheartening spectacle of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claiming that "some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians--they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians." This is an obscenity on two levels. Most people will naturally focus on the fact that Pelosi's refusal to credit the Bush administration also means she must refuse to credit our Armed Forces who have sacrificed so much and fought with such skill and bravery to make the surge a success.

Still more disgusting is Pelosi's bizarre desire to credit our enemies in Iran for our progress. This claim is so at odds with the truth and so offensive, it's shocking that even the most partisan Democrat would make it.

Who is surprised Pelosi would make comments like this? I am not surprised, but I am disgusted. It annoys me that I can't say this though without being the bad guy and being called partisan. It is not partisan to be disgusted by such contemptible statements as those made by Pelosi. However if you dispute them, Pelosi and her minions will immediately start screaming "You are questioning my patriotism!"

Maybe it is time to stop waffling about this. I am questioning her patriotism. She is a socialist who is dedicated to weakening America so that socialism can take over. I see that as treason. America is winning and Pelosi can't stand it.
