A strategy memo has been leaked from that GOP Reps. John Shadegg and Peter Hoekstra sent out to the rest of the House GOP. An excerpt:
"The debate should not be about the surge or its details. This debate should not even be about the Iraq war to date, mistakes that have been made, or whether we can, or cannot, win militarily. If we let Democrats force us into a debate on the surge or the current situation in Iraq, we lose."
Got that? "DON'T debate the single most important issue of our day, an issue that effects all Americans! WE might lose." "Who cares what effect it will actually have on those who have to go to Iraq? WE might lose."
I hope to hell that the Democrats hang this stinking albatross around their collective throats.
