Will They Listen? February 26, 2007Posted by BrewFan in Politics.
Sen. Joseph Lieberman appeals for reason in this excellent piece he wrote for the Wall Street Journal. One of many excellent points he makes is:
Many of the worst errors in Iraq arose precisely because the Bush administration best-cased what would happen after Saddam was overthrown. Now many opponents of the war are making the very same best-case mistake–assuming we can pull back in the midst of a critical battle with impunity, even arguing that our retreat will reduce the terrorism and sectarian violence in Iraq.
So, will they listen? I’m not optimistic. The career of Congress-person has developed into such a lucrative business that I’m afraid that too many of our elected Senators and Representatives place self-interest above all else.
