Three Democratic congressmen have just come back from a dog and pony show in
Iraq and suddenly think everything is going just great! Surprise surprise
surprise. As I've written before, General Petraeus is known for his
sweet-as-candy ability to lie his way out of any crisis, so it's no wonder that
his smoke-and-mirrors production of Iraq, the musical, snookered these 3 Dems.
How can you be so obsessed with your own greatness and knowledge that you think that anyone who doesn't agree with you is lying or has been tricked? I trust people with attitudes such as this less than anyone. The feeling I get is that they would even lie to themselves if they had to in order to not be wrong.
I don't know what the position on the ground in Iraq is. There have been some solid reports that things are going well. There have been other reports that things are not going well, the general will give his report in a couple days. While those on the left are already calling him a liar, I don't see why he would want to lie. If he could get the troops to come home, he could come home and be out of the danger. Do they really think that the small political gain would be more important than that?
