Didn't we warn people about this months ago?

I distinctly remember both Marcie and I warnbing people that the calls for an Iraq pullout were just the beginning. We warned you people that the Democrats would eventually declare Afghanistan lost, and it was time to pull out.

Dammit! We hate being right 99% of the time:

When they won control of Congress in November, Democrats pressed their case to withdraw troops from Iraq and refocus on Afghanistan, but some are growing impatient with U.S. operations in Afghanistan as well.

A few congressional Democrats go so far as suggesting that the Pentagon should pull out of Afghanistan now, while others say that troop withdrawal will be addressed after the military is out of Iraq.

Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii), a senior defense authorizer, wants the U.S. out of Afghanistan immediately, calling operations there “futile” in trying to effect political change in a country with a tangled history.

Most other Democrats want to focus on Afghanistan, with the goal of withdrawing the military down the road after the country is stabilized and any new Taliban resurgence quashed.

With a few exceptions, congressional Democrats no longer show any hesitation about withdrawing the military from Iraq. But they are more circumspect about Afghanistan, saying that the Bush administration let the situation worsen by shifting attention onto a protracted conflict in Iraq.

“We should have never gone to Iraq, because we would have been out of Afghanistan [by now],” Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) said in a brief interview. ...

... “We are finished there, militarily speaking,” said Abercrombie, the chairman of the Air and Land Armed Services subcommittee.

“There is no useful purpose for our troops there,” Abercrombie stated in a recent interview. “The military should withdraw now,” he said, though he stressed that the U.S. could keep “isolated pockets” of special operators.

We knew it wouldn't be long before Democrats got tired of Afghanistan, too. It was only a matter of time because that party has no stomach for prolonged conflicts. and now we know that all their caterwauling regarding a departure from Iraq to focus on Afghanistan was nothing more than lip service. Yep, you got to hand it to the cut-and-run crowd. If they can find a reason for retreat, they'll throw it out there on the wall and see if it sticks. Let's cross our fingers that the people of America aren't as stupid as the Democrats are.

Something odd is happening the Democrats and the Media keep telling us we think one thing and the more they do, the lower their approval ratings decline.

Could it be they are lieing to us?
