Democratic Congressman James Clyburn of South Carolina admitted that he is worried that the Surge may work in Iraq and ruin Democratic Party plans to impose a timetable for a surrender. Clyburn is the Majority Whip — No. 3 man in the House — and he said that if Gen. Petraeus has a positive report in September that would be “a real big problem for us” (Democrats).
The lack of respect for reality that such a position shows means I can't vote for them. Even when the Republicans become corrupt, they at least take real dollars, not fantasy points in the political mill.
