“The American people are still waiting to hear the straight talk we deserve,” Sen. Robert Menendez said in the Democrats’ weekly radio address. “Instead of making more sweeping claims of victory, as he did this week, it's time for the president to face the reality of the situation we're in.”
Why don’t YOU tell the American public the truth, Sen. Menendez?
Why don’t you bluntly tell them
• That we cannot establish a democracy in Iraq, even if we had more troops than we do there now?
• That you are still afraid of being labeled “defeatist”?
• That Afghanistan, as well as Iraq, is probably “lost”?
• That me-tooism on nation-building in both countries is stupid and criminal?
I could list more, but that’s enough for starters.
Irony alert tag.
