Defeatist Mentality

Does anyone wonder why the approval rating of Congress is 18%? I don't think I've ever seen such whiny, defeatist, gloom, despair, and agony on me bunch of leaders in my lifetime. What's worse, it seems they WANT us to lose the War On Terror, the battle against illegal immigration, etc.

They have such a disdain for George W. Bush that they prefer defeat to victory just so they can go to the American people and say, "See, we told you so! He's a incompetent buffoon who waged an illegal and unwinnable war!" So much for patriotism. I know, I know. I'm not supposed to question their patriotism. So what should we do when someone isn't patriotic?

The Democrats began their assault on General Petraeus weeks ago in an attempt to discredit the positive report he began presenting to Congress today. Even today Congress called people to testify prior to Petraeus who said he was wrong, even before he said anything.

After today's testimony by Gen. Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker the defeatists marched lock-step in an attempt to discredit the report. One common theme was that U.S. troops are caught in a "civil war with no end in sight."

These defeatists cost us victory in Vietnam 35 years ago. It cost millions of Vietnamese their lives.

If we let the defeatists force us to tuck our tails and run out of Iraq, the cost will be much higher this time. Al Qaeda will take residence in Iraq and rebuild to become stronger than ever. Then, it will be Americans who will lose their lives.
