My Position on the War

This is my position on the Iraq War:

It's going great. The president has things reasonably under control. There's nothing to debate about. Let's move on.

Question: So why does the war seem to be such a hot issue?

Answer: Because the Democrats hate George W. Bush.

That's the underlying reason, anyway. It's their motive. The mechanism, however, is using the press to keep the Iraq War in the national dialogue in an attempt to bash Bush with it. That was the reason for their temper tantrum in the senate when they called a surprise closed session, and that's the motive behind Murtha's withdrawl proposal (which even he didn't vote for):

Murtha Balks at Own Proposal
Late Friday night the House took a vote on Rep. John Murtha's proposal for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. The vote was 403-3 against, with Murtha among the 403. The only congressmen favoring Murtha's idea were three far-left Democrats: Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, Jose Serrano of New York and Robert Wexler of Florida. Six Dems voted "present": Michael Capuano (Mass.), William Clay (Mo.), Maurice Hinchey (N.Y.), Jim McDermott (Wash.), Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) and Major Owens (N.Y.). Best of the Web Today

And it seems to me that the majority of Americans feel the same way, no matter which side of the aisle they typically vote for. Those who are in the blogosphere need to stop defending against the minutia in the Iraq based attacks against the president, and simply start defending with their bottom line: The Iraq War is going fine. Take the heat out of the discussion, and move on.
