"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

The Reluctant Hawks

The Democrats -- and any reality-based Republicans for that matter -- plain and simple, need to come clean on the case for war in Iraq. Enough is enough. They need to admit they we're wrong: that the war is wrong. Because staying the course will never change the fact that it was, and still is, an unjustifiable war. They were misled by the Bushco war machine, we all know that... And that is pathetic in itself. But there is no redemption for those who cannot admit their faults. If they want our support they need to get off the fence, because sentiment like this runs far and wide throughout the left, and come '06 it will be more prevalent on the right as well, and it will cost them:

As much as I'm infuriated by the Bush brigade's steadfast support of the Iraq horror, I find myself angrier still when pro-war liberals -- the so-called reluctant hawks -- wring their hands over the bloody mess they've wrought with their neo-conservative allies. There are many such handwringers in politics, especially within the leadership of the Democratic Party. Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware is forever asking "tough questions" about Iraq (the torture at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo upset him terribly), without drawing the obvious conclusion that we never should have attacked in the first place, and need to get out as fast as possible.

Are you listening Hillary? Swallow your pride, admit you were duped, and let's get the hell out. Now.
