I Can't Believe I'm Saying This

Smart Republican: Rep. Jason Chaffetz:

“Most people are hesitant about pulling out because they don’t want to look like they have their tail between their legs,” Chaffetz said. “If the reason we should stay in Afghanistan is because we are in Afghanistan then it is time to re-evaluate your position.”

Dumb Democrat: His Opponent, Karen Hyer, Chaffetz' Democratic oponent:

"she said the Republican’s vote against this funding was “irresponsible” and described it as “the grandstanding of an inexperienced freshman congressman.”

Hyer believe the funding is necessary to continue and conclude ongoing missions.

“We should support our men in uniform who are currently in harm’s way,” she said."

And the way to support them is to let them die for nothing. I've been waiting since Vietnam for someone to explain to me how that works.

Bush and Cheney blew it over there long ago, and everybody knows it. History is full of people who let their soldiers die long after it was clear that they had lost the war, rather than lose face. And history has not been kind to these people.
