Faced with potential GOP defeat in both chambers, Bush and Cheney aimed to avert that by convincing voters that they cannot risk giving the opposition party any power in Washington.
“However they put it, the Democrat approach in Iraq comes down to this: The terrorists win and America loses,” Bush told a raucous crowd of about 5,000 GOP partisans packed in an arena at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, one of his stops Monday. “That’s what’s at stake in this election. The Democrat goal is to get out of Iraq. The Republican goal is to win in Iraq.”
Iraq is over. We can do little to nothing more. The war is over. Finished. It is an ex-parrot. Pretending the GOP wants to “win” and the Democrats want to “lose” is absurd, as there is no winning and losing anymore. There is just dying and election-year rhetoric.
BTW- It really is amazing what Ann Althouse will excuse away. It is almost like she has no principles.
