Clyburn: Positive Report by Petraeus Could Split House Democrats on War
"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 the real corker:
"...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." "
So the House Majority Whip feels that a positive report from Iraq is "a real big problem" for the Democrats?
What would make the Democrats feel better? Having a few dozen or so GI's splattered across the countryside on the first day of the Democratic National Convention? Wow. Wouldn't that help in the polls? Would that be negative enough?
And there are people in this country who believe these asshol...twits have a moral imperative to run the country?
You gotta be kidding.
