But if Democrats really want to be taken seriously on foreign affairs, they need to recognize that they have only half a policy on Iraq. And it's the easy half.
Well, at least he's right about that.
And ask yourself a simple question:
What have the Democrats actually done to turn this war around since they were elected in November on a strong wave of protest sentiment?
They have authorized more funding for Iraq, instead of using their Congrerssional authority granted them under the Constitution to de-fund it.
They have also authorized the use of force against Iran, should that nightmare scenario come to pass. Even the "peace candidates," Obama and Edwards, have stated that "all options are on the table."
Edwards has even recently come out in favour of bringing back conscription!!
And where is the impeachment movement? Isn't it time for the Democrats in Congress to enforce the law and bring this rogue President, and his Svengali-like VP, to justice?
The Bushies may be drunk with power, but the Dems have so far done little except enable this intemperance. The Democrats talk a big game, but their performance, thus far, has been a disappointment.
