This has got to top it all. A frank admission from the third-ranking Democrat in the United States House of Representatives that he is worried Al Qaeda just isn't delivering Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi the results they need to overthrow Chimpy Bushhitler McHalliburton:
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Monday that a strongly positive report on progress on Iraq by Army Gen. David Petraeus likely would split Democrats in the House and impede his party's efforts to press for a timetable to end the war.
And it's even worse than that:
Many Democrats have anticipated that, at best, Petraeus and U.S. ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker would present a mixed analysis of the success of the current troop surge strategy, given continued violence in Baghdad. But of late there have been signs that the commander of U.S. forces might be preparing something more generally positive. Clyburn said that would be "a real big problem for us."
"Generally positive" results from the surge in Iraq would be "a real big problem for us." The Democrats in the House want America to lose the war.

Traitors. That's all they are. Traitors. A vote for any Democratic Party candidate in any election in this country is a vote for treason.

UPDATE: Mark Steyn asks:
In how many wars fought by democratic countries has the majority party in the legislature announced that its political interests require national defeat?
O tempora! O mores!

UPDATE: Thomas Sowell notes:
Senator Reid feared that the surge would turn out not to be a failure — and the Democrats had bet everything, including their chances in the 2008 elections, on an American defeat in Iraq.
And he continues:
Victory is not inevitable, any more than victory was inevitable when American and British troops landed at Normandy in 1945.
The Punditarian would add that victory is not inevitable, but it is achievable, and it does not seem too much to ask that the Democrats in Congress would advocate American victory rather than American defeat. The mask is off.

The MSM never carries little morsels of treason like Clyburn's because the Dhimmi-crats need to keep their agenda of tax & spend, expand the feckless incompetent Federal Government, and produce another Vietnam before they can proceed to the real business at hand---destruction of the US Constitution starting with the First Amendment---at least for talk radio and offensive fair-and-balanced media outlets.

Once silenced, the opposition can be consigned to the economic Gulags that proved so successful in Zimbabwe, Cuba, N. Korea, Pol Pot's Kampuchea, and various other defunct experiments in social engineering.

My theory is, that since the Dems all went out on a limb, to say the War was a lost cause, they need to control the discussion on Iraq in the electronic media.

And this is the real reason, MoveOn.org and their cronies are putting pressure on Fox News to conform to the party line or lose their advertisers.

What ever happened to freedom of the press.
