As significant as what Clyburn said is the way he said it. According to Clyburn, a strongly positive report by Petraeus would be "a real big problem for us." Clyburn's candor may be commendable, but it's unfortunate that the Dems regard strongly positive news from Iraq as a problem.
Pretty sorry state of affairs when you have the party in power during wartime openly pining for our subjugation to third-world savages.
If this isn't illustrative of why it hasn't been safe to vote democrat, and why we can only continue to do so at our own peril, nothing is.
