Democratic Hari-Kari

Well, if getting squashed into the ground wasn't enough this last week. Democrats on Wednesday plan to shoot themselves in the other foot.

"DEMOCRATS plan to offer a resolution in the US Senate on Wednesday seeking a timetable for a phased withdrawal from Iraq, California senator Dianne Feinstein said today.

Recent polls show a slight majority of Americans favour such a course but White House spokesman Tony Snow said President George W. Bush would not consider it.

Setting a timetable "would be an absolute, unmitigated disaster, not merely for the people of Iraq, but the larger war on terror", he said on CNN's Late Edition program.

The House of Representatives last week approved a nonbinding resolution which rejected a deadline for US troops to leave Iraq and called the conflict there part of the broader war on terrorism.

"Three years and three months and a bogging down, I think, suggests that the time has come for some discussion on where we go from here," said Senator Feinstein, who was also interviewed on CNN.

"I don't know why we are so afraid to stand up and say, 'look, we want to see an end to this thing'," she said."

"Cut and Run".....any questions?

I couldn't have asked for a better Father's Day present than to have the Democrats continue to self destruct.
