Harry Reid’s Amazing Devotion to Failure (Updated)
Thank you, Senator Reid. Your devotion to losing is something that we all marvel at.
“Every place you go you hear about no progress being made in Iraq,” said Senate Democratic majority leader Harry Reid.
“The government is stalemated today, as it was six months ago, as it was two years ago,” Reid told reporters, warning US soldiers were caught in the middle of a civil war.
“It is not getting better, it is getting worse,” he said.
Nope. No improvement. Not a word about improving situations. Everything seems to be getting worse. Without your will to succumb to our enemies, Senator Reid, I might have mistakenly gotten the impression that a little stiffening of the backbone might be in order. So, yeah, let’s get to losing.
Thank God that Senator Reid is here to show us the way to a proper defeat.
Update: No. Nothing good to see here. Move along.
The nightmare is ending. Al Qaeda is being crushed. The Sunni tribes are awakening all across Iraq and foreswearing violence for negotiation. Many of the Shia are ready to stop the fighting that undermines their ability to forge and manage a new government. This is a complex and still delicate denouement, and the war may not be over yet. But the Muslims are saying it’s time to come home. And the Christians are saying it’s time to come home. They are weary, and there is much work to be done.”
