David Sirota: Beltway Dems Regurgitate Right-Wing B.S. on Iraq; Grassroots Fights Back - Yahoo! News

David Sirota: Beltway Dems Regurgitate Right-Wing B.S. on Iraq; Grassroots Fights Back - Yahoo! News: "That's all well and good - except, it assumes that Americans are stupid. The fact is, doing what these strategists suggest will reinforce the idea that Democrats stand for nothing, because refusing to address the Iraq war is the equivalent of Democrats 'not being straight with people' in the same way Bush isn't being straight with people. It's the reason why we can drive up Bush and the GOP's negatives all we want - but that doesn't mean it is going to help us. The fact is, Democrats will not capitalize on any of this until they start speaking clearly about where they actually stand on the war, and whether they actually have the guts to say what polls show most Americans believe: that the Bush administration deliberately lied to us about why we were going to war, that the war has made our country less safe/secure, and that it's time for a serious exit strategy."

Wow, so some people do understand, almost.

Look just tell people the truth. Tell them your real position. Stop fucking around.
