Well, we now have another threat to abandon the troops and their mission. This time, it's from "conservatives."
Their message is simple: either Bush backs down on supporting immigration reform, or they will pull the plug on funding for Iraq.
"Treason doth not prosper, for what's the reason? For if it doth prosper, none dare call it treason."
Well, I dare call it treason.
It's official. I'm no longer a conservative. I'm a Donald Bellisario Republican--national security first, last, and always, and to hell with everything (and everyone) else.
To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, I haven't left conservatism. Conservatism left me.
