Who will get the Bush Dogs out?

By Libby

I'll have more to say on this later, but just a quick endorsement of Matt Stoller's Bush Dog campaign. I take back every mean thing I ever said about his being a mere tool of the Democratic machine. This is exactly what the progressives need to do if we're to reclaim the Democratic party and restore it to its former principles.

Clearly, the Dems need the help figuring out what the stand for when they cringe and cower from the latest White House spin on the surge "success." How is it these cowards can't see the repetitive nature of the warhawk's tactics when they are so painfully apparent to most of the country? Did they forget the big talk about the surge's only true metric of success would be its ability to foster political reconcillation. Did they not notice that Maliki's government is on the verge of shattering? Or did they just think that we forgot and they can away with reneging on their promise to rein in our Reckless Leader?

I don't have the time at the moment to fully develop this theme but let it suffice for now to note that if the surge was such a bloody success, then why does the White House GOP operatives feel like they have to spend 15 million on a PR blitz to convince us it's succeeding? Seems to me, real success would have sold itself.

The surge has been a dismal failure for everyone except war profiteers and Al Qaida. Both of those groups have benefited tremendously.
