Why the Dems Aren't Serious

This piece points out that many of the supposedly "wise people" that liberals love to quote as original opponents of overthrowing Saddam Hussein are now insisting that American surrender in Iraq would be catastrophic.

Yet the Democrats ignore these people, ironically, even as they denounce the President for having done so. They continue to minimize the threat of homegrown terror.

Ah, yes, some are willing to call for "sacrifice" -- but only when it comes to global warming and the like. When it comes to stabilizing Iraq, protecting the people we urged to come out and vote for democratic change there, and preventing a regional conflagration in the Middle East, none of that matters to the Dems. Better just to try to reap all the political capital and win the presidential election.
