Dems Playing Politics with National Security

Posted: Mar 15, 2007 9:59 AM

Hugh's post this morning (about the Dems micro-managing the war) was spot-on.

The Senate Joint Resolution on Iraq is the latest version of the Democrats' slow-bleed strategy.  Sadly, this slow-bleed strategy  is a product of consultant-driven campaign strategy  and posturing -- not military doctrine.

Perennial loser/political consultant Bob Shrum recently admitted that he was wrong to advice John Edwards to vote to authorize going into Iraq. Of course, this begs the question: If Democrats are taking their marching orders from consultants -- and those orders are based on what is politically expedient -- what is to say that they aren't making a mistake this time?
