The Defeat and Retreat Crowd
I hope Ralph Peters speaks for millions when he writes
I've always been a swing voter, but I cannot vote for cowards, traitors or fools. True, there are rational voices in the Democratic ranks. Sen. Joe Lieberman isn't just a politician — he's a statesman of great moral force. Sen. Clinton, too, has tacked to a sensible course on Iraq — if for pragmatic reasons.UPDATE: Victor Davis Hanson writes that Dean and Kerry are the Democrat Party's mainstream.
Still, not one high-profile Democrat has called publicly for the removal of Howard Dean, the terrorist cheerleader, from the helm of their party. And Dean doesn't even have the spine to stand behind his own recorded words, waffling that he didn't mean exactly what he meant the way he meant it when he said it.
Dean's irresponsible outbursts encourage our enemies to kill American troops. Silence is complicity.
