The last two weeks have been critically important and I believe may be seen as a turning point in the war in Iraq and the war on terrorism.On the bruhaha amongst the Democrats over his ongoing support for the Bush administration's long-term goals in Iraq, Lieberman had this to say.
I believe the president has begun a new conversation with the American people, looking back and talking again about why we went into Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein, why we remain there, why success in Iraq is so critical to America's national security, and how we intend to win.
The difference in this town - here in Washington - on the war is not between Democrats and Republicans; it's between people who believe essentially we've already lost in Iraq and it's time to get out - and most of the rest of us who believe not only have we not lost, but we're winning.That says it all about the most vocal cut-and-run liberals. And their response? DNC chair Howard Dean's brother, James Dean (whom I thought died in a car crash many years ago in Hollywood when his Porsche ran out of navigable road surface) starts a "Get Joe Lieberman" committee in Connecticut.
