Dems Still Trying to Figure Out Where They Stand on Iraq War

Democrats revise strategy on Iraq
The Washington Times

"Democratic strategists yesterday said a revised proposal to begin withdrawing some U.S. troops from Iraq by year's end is a more appealing campaign position than an immediate pullout that draws little voter support.

'That is how the Democrats are going to frame this debate for the voters and that's the choice before them in this election,' former Clinton administration official John Cowan said of the proposed withdrawal, which was outlined Monday in a letter to President Bush from top congressional Democrats.
With polls showing that only a third of Democratic voters support immediate troop withdrawals, Democrats yesterday said their latest plan would offer voters a deadline-free choice between Mr. Bush's indefinite 'stay the course' approach and 'a new strategy' to pressure the Iraqi government to handle more of the fighting on their own."

  • 'withdrawing some U.S. troops from Iraq by year's end is a more appealing campaign position than an immediate pullout that draws little voter support.'

    Can the Dems make it any clearer that getting elected is all that they care about?

  • They care about nothing other than being in power, irrespective of whether their positions are in the best interests of the country, which rarely are these days.
