Selling the US and the US military short

Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit has an outstanding post "Unparalleled Perfidy" that crystallizes what leading Democrats are trying to do and supported strongly I suspect by a goodly percentage of the rank and file.

The linked posts including the primary one are all worth reading.

The poll results especially are very striking. Focus on the question "How important is a US victory in Iraq, by party":

9 out of 10 Republicans feel that it is important but only HALF of Democrats feel that way. Whether or not one agrees on the decision to go to war and how its been and being prosecuted how can only HALF of Democrats NOT think that a US victory in Iraq is important?! Perhaps its the view of "As long as Bush fails and we are proven right we don't care what happens to Iraq or America."

It's not the party of Truman, it's the party of Benedict Arnold.
