South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint blamed Democratic "wimps" like Harry Reid for the deaths of our soldiers in Iraq. Reid, by the way, was a former boxer and I would bet DeMint wouldn't dare talk so tough if Reid were within punching distance.
“Al-Qaida knows that we’ve got a lot of wimps in Congress,” DeMint said. “I believe a lot of the casualties can be laid at the feet of all the talk in Congress about how we’ve got to get out, we’ve got to cut and run.”
Asked later who he had targeted in his comments, DeMint replied:
“To a large degree, the Democratic party and those who basically declared defeat like Harry Reid.”
This post goes hand in hand with my post last night by Victor Hanson. Republicans understand that Iraq is a disaster and looms as a millstone around their neck for a generation to come. They are desperately looking to pawn off this abortion on anyone else. Too bad guys. This is George Bush's war, and you let him run it without an ounce of oversight. Man up!
