Congressman Brian Baird returned from Iraq and told his constituents the good news. That we are making a difference in Iraq. And that we should maintain our support for the Iraqi people. (Video link here.)
Monday night the congressman met with some of his constituents. It seems the Lefties in the Democrat party are unhappy with the congressman. From The Stranger (ooh! French nihilism!) come the following comments:
"Baird is an idiot for changing his mind about the Iraq War simply because the situation on the ground improved."
"The only question is whether we leave Iraq, or stay and be defeated and humiliated (since we cannot "win," staying in Iraq is a defeat). Bush, Petraeus et al want America to be defeated and humiliated; "bipartisan" types like Baird merely make it easier for defeatists like Bush."
"Really, who cares what Brian Baird thinks. He can think about pulling out of Iraq or sticking it to Iraq all day long. Is he actually working on a plan for anything? Does anyone have a plan if we stay in Iraq? Did anyone even have a plan before we went into Iraq? Well, obviously that answer is no."
"Why the HELL are we still there? What is our presence preventing? What is it accomplishing? If the best you can say is temporary security, then you have NO PLAN for exit. Kinda like King George. He is just killing time (and American troops) so he can pass it to the next president."
There are times when I look at my brothers and sisters on the Left and wonder why they don't read a book. Something without pictures. I'm afraid that for many on the Left an idea is only valid if it makes them feel good.
Time to grow up people.
