I don't think it's a quagmire, just as I didn't think Vietnam was a quagmire. We have the ability to win in Iraq, but it requires a commitment at home, a commitment the Democrats are not willing to make. Not only, I may add, not willing to make, but willing to lie, cheat, and steal to destroy every opportunity that may present itself to achieve that victory.
You can cheer them on, cheer them to victory if you will. Then, when all Hell breaks loose here, on American soil because of our perceived weakness over there, you'll all be jumping back on the 'blame George' bandwagon.
It takes two sides to polarize. You seem to think that the President has polarazied the nation because he won't work with the Democrats on the issues? Who just offerd a minimum wage increase, which only required that the Congress sign on to extend existing tax cuts to pass it? Who rejected it? The Democrats have stated that they will punish any Democrat who works with the President, and Sen. Lieberman seems to be proof that they are serious. Yet, they claim it is the President who is polarizing the nation. Lies. Outright, vicious, lies. Lies by the Democrats, not by the Republicans or the President. Yet you are willing to defend these lies as just, because you share their dislike for the current occupant of the White House. Just as Shos now blames Nader for Gore's loss, when he's not blaming the Supreme Court or Gov. Jeb Bush or whoever else happens to be handy.
The Democrats share the blame for whatever mess they percieve the nation to be in. Now they claim to be the saviors that will lead us to redemption. What rot! If they didn't want to go to war in Iraq, they had the power to vote against it. They shirked their duty, and now they hide behind the lie that they were lied to. And now they're turning on anyone in their ranks that has the guts to face the truth, the guts to say "I voted to authorize this situation and I'm willing to face the consequences of that vote".
If they can offer real solutions, then let them do so. If not, let them get the hell out of the way and let our leader lead. Obstruction and obfuscation are all they have now, and it's getting really, really, old to those of us who are paying attention. Fortunately for them, we that are find ourselves in the minority.
