F*ck the Silver Lining — I Want the Dark Cloud

Wednesday, August 22, 2007, 21:57 EST Leave a comment Go to comments

I didn’t believe the right-wingers who said Democrats area against the Iraq war only because Republicans are for it. Maybe I should have.

Democratic leaders in Congress had planned to use August recess to raise the heat on Republicans to break with President Bush on the Iraq war. Instead, Democrats have been forced to recalibrate their own message in the face of recent positive signs on the security front, increasingly focusing their criticisms on what those military gains have not achieved: reconciliation among Iraq’s diverse political factions.

Good thing something is still going wrong, or we’d have to talk them all in off the ledge.
