30. With Sirota. I am not conflicted, with this kind of drivel from Marshall
Edited on Thu Aug-25-05 04:11 PM by flpoljunkie
Will Marshall:

"Such attitudes aren't likely to allay voters' doubts about Democrats' resolve to make them safer from terrorist attacks. Neither are demands by left-wing Democrats and the anti-war group, MoveOn.org, that the United States withdraw its troops from Iraq. Rather than offering fresh fodder to Karl Rove, the party would do better to heed Sens. Joe Biden, John Kerry, Evan Bayh, and Hillary Rodham Clinton, who have set an example for responsible, progressive patriotism. They have balanced blunt criticism of the Bush administration's blunders with concrete suggestions for relieving the strain on U.S. forces in Iraq, broadening international support for the Iraqi government, and speeding up the pace of reconstruction."

Essentially parroting the Bush administration line is hardly "progressive" patriotism. Why does he even use this word? It sounds silly in this context. Does he think we will be fooled into signing on to the DLC agenda--which is, basically, trying to move to the right of the Bush neocons by enlarging the armed forces by another 100,000 soldiers?

How many more Americans and Iraqis are going to have to die in Iraq for the creation of an Islamic state, allied with Iran? I think Paul Hackett has come to realize this, as evidence in his recent appearance on Bill Maher.

"Right now it's not working. The country is in chaos. There is a civil war going on. It hasn't gotten any better in a year and a half. News flash. War's over. Let's get 'em home." - Paul Hackett on Bill Maher
