Knowing Where the Blame Lies

Brendan Miniter points out the political danger for the Democrats that's posed by their headlong rush to force a US defeat in Iraq.

And indeed, he's quite right. Given the non-binding resolution and the "slow bleed" strategy, the American people will understand exactly who is trying to win -- and who is actively trying to lose. Miniter's point is one I was attempting to make yesterday in my Townhall column:

[W]hatever their own doubts about the prosecution or ultimate outcome of the war, the American people are right to be wary of a party that – for its own political benefit – must hope for and embrace an unnecessary U.S. military defeat simply to consolidate and enhance its own power.
