House Set to Betray America

In a cynical political move, House Democrats are set to pass a non-binding resolution that will overjoy America's enemies while demoralizing her troops. The Democratic Party has become so invested in American defeat that they see President Bush's troop surge in Iraq as a threat to their political interests:
The Democratic-controlled House was set to vote late on Friday on a symbolic resolution supporting U.S. forces in Iraq but opposing the Republican president's decision to send another 21,500 troops.

"Congress has a right to express its views," White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said. Bush was holding his fire, prepared to fight any subsequent effort by lawmakers to cut funding for the war.
The resolution is the first step in a Democratic scheme to defund the Iraq theater of the War on Terror, paving the way for a humiliating American defeat and withdrawal that can then be blamed on Bush and the Republicans.
