Second verse, same as the first

Democrats: Iraqi troop buildup a failure

Delusional. So far, the “new strategy” (which includes the “surge”) has been wildly successful at achieving its goals. It’s completely true that the political process in Iraq hasn’t come as far as we’d hoped or expected, but the military aspect has far exceeded expectations.

Harry Reid, Surrendacrat Senator from Nevada, declared the “surge” a failure before it was even complete, let alone before the “surged” troops could fight some battles. His reasoning was completely irrational at the time, so to expect him to make any sense on the subject now is overly optimistic.
