Congressional Democrats are at it again. When they tried to withdraw from Iraq, President Bush launched the troop surge with significant popular support. When they tried to discredit the surge, General Petraeus showed up and told them that it was working wonderfully after all.
When these congressional Democrats tried to insult and tarnish General Petraeus by protecting their friends at MoveOn.org, Americans condemned them for it and responded favorably to the militarys progress on the ground.
Now, congressional Democrats want to sink even lower than they ever have. By harming the war effort in the worst manner yet, they are officially willing to put our militarys progress on the ground at a severe and unnecessary risk for their own benefit.
For some reason, these Democratic leaders in Washington have decided that now would be the perfect time to anger Turkey, a crucial ally in the Middle East and an important player in the region, by passing a resolution condemning the appalling treatment of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire (now Turkey), calling it a genocide.
In Pelosi’s mind (?) the higher heating oil prices this winter and gas prices next summer which this is causing will translate to a rat victory in ‘08.
