“Cut and Run” Becomes “Stay the Course”

Publius has a fine rant and Karen provides the meat from a Bob Herbert op-ed in the New York Times on the coming transformation of the withdrawal from Iraq that the Republicans have spent days in the House and Senate calling “Cut and Run.”

Now that the Iraqis have called for withdrawal and General Casey has outlined a draw down that seems to have more to do with the American election cycle than conditions in Iraq, we will see the Republicans claiming that this was the “plan” all along but the Democrats had to be shown to be “politicizing” Iraq, before this “Republican plan” could be introduced.

…I could never be a Republican. I would never, either through serious brain injury or surgery or powerful drugs, be able to lose that sense of embarrassment that you have to abandon in order to behave like these bozo’s…

Jack, the White House knew this was in the works and they let Congress go forward with their charade. Hypocrisy on parade – this isn’t rational politics or leadership.
