By appeasing the Dems and the MSM, the GOP indirectly lends comfort to the terrorist...I think that's the point of the post. If the GOP loses either the House and/or Sen. this election, it will be because they've refused or been unable to get out and effectively fight for their positions.
In a larger sense, if the goal is to keep us safe in this hostile world, and we loose the political battle here to the Democrats, it makes no difference what we do in Iraq. Politics here at home is a major factor in keeping this country safe. Even if we win the war in Iraq, but loose the house, senate and white house to the Democrats, we are going to be far from safe.
