Red Letter Day for the Democrats

While John Kerry was in Iraq meeting with the enemy - oh wait, he actually made these inspiring comments to our troops -
Visiting with U.S. troops in Baghdad on Thursday, failed presidential candidate John Kerry trashed Commander-in-chief George Bush for making "horrendous judgments" and "unbelievable blunders" that have undermined the war effort.

In a series of demoralizing comments first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the defeated Democrat griped, "What is sad about what's happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning."
House Democrats were engaged in what appears to be a new-found quadrennial tradition: protesting the results of a legitimate national election. This time they convinced one of their Senate collaborators, Barbara Boxer to join them.
"We cannot keep turning our eyes away from a flawed system particularly as we have people dying in Iraq every day to bring democracy to those people," she said.
Does this entire party fail to realize the impact and impressions that statements like these have? Are they so focused on partisan politics that they can't restrain themselves even when their outlandish comments hurt so many?

Clearly they make the U.S look bad.

But even worse, they cast doubt on the democratic process in general. At a time when vulnerable democracies are taking root and just beginning to grow, we should be the role model for others to strive for, not the source for them to question the direction they are heading.

The Democratic party is demonstrating just where their priorities are. Ohio, and America, will not forget.
