It's Victory, Stupid 

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sums up the Democrats are saying about President Bush and Iraq:

"I believe that the president's leadership in the actions taken in Iraq demonstrate an incompetence in terms of knowledge, judgment and experience in making the decisions that would have been necessary to truly accomplish the mission without the deaths to our troops and the cost to our taxpayers."

Briefly stated she says President Bush is incompetent because the war costs money and lives. Is she saying that wars led by competent presidents cost no lives and are free of charge? In this war there have been tragedies and mistakes and many lives lost, but in comparison to other wars in our history this one is a model of success. The problem she has is with fighting the war in the first place. She is not an advocate of fighting more efficiently, she wants us to surrender.

Senator Kerry’s statements sound a bit better. He wants to succeed in Iraq by handing it over to the United Nations. Not since the Korean War has the United Nations ever taken forceful action anywhere. Whenever a politician wants to turn something over the U.N. it means they want to do nothing. Translation Kerry also advocates surrender, but in code talk.

Let’s get the lines of debate correct. There has been very little reasoned debate on how to win the war – we are debating whether to win or surrender. We are a free country where people can advocate what ever they want. I stand with President Bush, the Republicans (and some Democrats) for victory. Representative Pelosi and Senator Kerry should be honest about their position for surrender.

Kerry - Anti-American 

Here is what Kerry said about what happened at Abu Ghraib.

"What has happened [at Abu Ghraib] is not just something that a few, you know, privates and corporals or sergeants engaged in. This is something that comes out of an attitude about the rights of prisoners of war. It's an attitude that comes out of how we went there in the first place, an attitude that comes out of America's overall arrogance as policy."

Let’s remember this because this fall Kerry will campaign as of tough on national defense candidate. People will need to be reminded that he is part of the blame America firs crowd.
