Democrats are liberals, and to the liberal nothing else matters as much as dominion over the people. They crave power, absolute power and total power. George W. Bush denied them that power twice -- first in 2000 when a Gore presidency, in their minds a natural continuation of the Clinton presidency, was "stolen" from them. The fact that Bush got so many votes as he did challenging the successor to a popular president, was a shock in itself. So the Democrats spent four years languishing and preparing for an epic battle to reclaim what was rightfully theirs. Then the blow came in 2004 that totally humiliated them. Election 2004 left no doubt about Bush's legimitacy; Bush was now far more legitimate than Clinton had ever been. This was the ultimate insult.

So what were the Democrats to do ? Not Much. They were turning into frothing maniacal rabid dogs - biting and clawing at anything they could. And as Rush likes to say, descending into the first stages of utter madness. They had failed in everything else until then including their prediction about the economy.

So their only hope lay in Iraq, which unfortunately for them was out of their control. Well not entirely, but for the most part. If Bush was to be discredited, paving the way for 2008,** AMERICA MUST LOSE**. This is Bush's war, so America must not only lose, it must be HUMILIATED like never before - and if possible with body count in the tens of thousands. But how can the Democrats achieve that ? There are two ways that are obvious a) Force a withdrawal -- a withdrawal in the public's eye is a defeat because the job is still unfinished. And thats all they care about - how the public perceives it. b) Cut off funding. If you cut off funding then b) leads to a) and the Democrat mission is accomplished.

In conclusion, the Democrats do not care about America. They do not really care if America wins or America loses so long as they can reclaim power in 2008. But for now, an American defeat to them is a means to an end. That my FRiends is why the Democrats crave defeat.

The Democrats dream of another Watergate and the windfall it would bring. The post Watergate election brought in the most incompetent bunch of elected people, headed by James Earl Carter, a Navy washout turned peanut farmer who could not manage his way out of a paper bag.

This time the choice is Hillery Clinton, the one person more incompetent than JEC.
