Carol Platt Liebau: Unfit to Be President

Unfit to Be President

Sorry for the light posting today -- Blogger has not been operating properly.

With his sponsorship and support of a resolution against the troop surge (a/k/a the best hope of victory) in Iraq, Joe Biden has shown why he -- and every Democrat except Joe Lieberman -- is manifestly unfit to be President.

Don't believe his specious drivel about wanting to "save the President from making a significant mistake." He knows that the troops are going, no matter what the non-binding resolution says, and so do the rest of the Democrats (as Hillary Clinton noted yesterday in a different context, "The president is going forward with the policy, the debate is academic.")

And given what General Petraeus said -- that more troops is the only way we can succeed in Iraq, and passing the resolution would embolden our enemies -- it's amazing that anyone would ever believe that there's anything BUT domestic political calculation behind this pathetic stunt.

At least Norm Coleman is a person of honor, and he voted against the motion.

If there's any good resulting from any of this, at least the record will be clear for the American people: They will know who was willing to try anything to succeed in Iraq -- and who wanted only to admit defeat.

Speaking of politics, after this, the Democrats had better hope the surge won't work -- which, of course, they do already.

How different were Lincoln's words when, after three years of bloody war and the seemingly fruitless sacrifice of scores of thousands of lives, Lincoln promoted US Grant: "With this high honor, devolves upon you, also, a corresponding responsibility. As the country herein trusts you, so, under God, it will sustain you."

It becomes harder and harder to refrain from questioning the patriotism of Democrats.
