Dems determined to repeat ‘nam defeat with a defeat in Iraq

Gateway Pundit slams home a point I’ve had floating around in my mind the last several weeks (but haven’t articulated) with his post titled “How Democrats Lost Vietnam… And, How They Plan On Losing Iraq“.

Cox and Forkum say it another way:

On the issue of opposing additional troops and trying to show it by withholding funds for the war, John Dickerson at Slate thinks that Senator Ted Kennedy is on his own in wanting to ‘stop the surge’ via cutting off war funding. I think on that score, he’s incorrect (more here).

Correction: Dickerson points out in the comments section that he did note that Kennedy would probably have more allies in the House than Senate. My mistake (that’s what I get for speed reading!)
