It's no secret. The Democrats, at least the strategists and pundits who don't have to worry about getting elected, are fully admitting it. The Democrat strategy to win some seats back in congress includes, as it's centerpiece, playing politics with the Iraq war.
Oh, you'll hear the actual politicians denying it, saying it's patriotic to disagree with the president and to voice that disagreement. You'll also hear them saying they aren't crtiticizing the troops, just the administration (We support our military but disagree with it's mission). Come now. Isn't that excuse a little like the rap adage, "Don't hate the playa, hate the game"? In other words, an immoral act committed by a person in an immoral contest should be considered...moral? Yeah, that's kinda like the reasoning used by these politicians.
The reason for all of this treason-yes, treason-is no more important than gaining a seat or two in the legislature. For this the majority of the Democrat party is willing to endanger our position in the world, encourage terrorists, embarrass the country and denigrate and endanger our military.
For a quick primer on the tawdriness of this "strategy", one needs to look no further than the Democrat response to Joe Lieberman's favorable evaluation of the war effort and encouragement to our troops to stay the course. Singled out by DNC chairman Dean as perhaps the only dissenter in the ranks. See also the admittedly partisan political purpose behind this constant carping about a war these people voted FOR.
Politics is certainly not an honorable profession, but this type of behavior is shameful even for a politician.
