When opponents admit the surge is working... it's really working...

Things must be getting very gloomy at MoveOn headquarters. Hillary Clinton is admitting the sure is working. A Democratic Congressman who opposed the liberation of Iraq is coming out against an early withdrawal.

In other words, it is now becomingobvious we are winning - and in the era of Google and Youtube, the "Cronkite moment" sought by some will just not happen. In fact, the conditions for dealing with the political issues will get closer and closer.

Remember, it took us eleven years to get from the Declaration of Independence to the Constitution. Iraq's starting from a bit of a hole, but we're there to help. It will take time, but if we keep at it, we will succeed.

What's so amazing, there have been many such Cronkite Moments in this war, where the Media and Democrats have raised the White Flag. The problem is, no one respects the Press in the way they did back when. The Murrows, Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, ect. All gone. (Though in my opinion, Brit Hume of Fox News comes awful close to this category)

It amazes me Hillary is on the Senate Armed Services Committee. "we have changed tactics in Iraq"

No Hillary, we changed strategy, and if you don't know the difference, you may not be qualified for your committee chair, much less president.

The way these candidates, almost all of them btw, interchange terms like policy, strategy, and tactics like they mean the same thing really highlights the lack of strategic depth in virtually all US policies, both domestic and foreign.
