Democrats Changing Subject On Iraq As Success Is At Hand

On Iraq, Times Catches Democrats Changing The Subject

As success on the ground in Iraq becomes undeniable, reporter Patrick Healy sees a "tonal shift" among Democrats.

What gives? On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, some among the Times' liberal readership no doubt got early indigestion from the paper's front-page headline, "Baghdad Starts to Exhale as Security Improves."

This Sunday reporter Patrick Healy took the domestic political angle, looking at how the current success on the ground in Iraq is playing among the Democrats running for president, in "As Democrats See Iraq Gains, A Shift in Tone -- Domestic Issues Given a Heavier Emphasis."

"As violence declines in Baghdad, the leading Democratic presidential candidates are undertaking a new and challenging balancing act on Iraq: acknowledging that success, trying to shift the focus to the lack of political progress there, and highlighting more domestic concerns like health care and the economy."

"Lately, as the killing in Baghdad and other areas has declined, the Democratic candidates have been dwelling less on the results of the troop escalation than on the lack of new government accords in Iraq -- a tonal shift from last summer and fall when American military commanders were preparing to testify before Congress asking for more time to allow the surge to show results.

"This is a delicate matter. By saying the effects of the troop escalation have not led to a healthier political environment, the candidates are tacitly acknowledging that the additional troops have, in fact, made a difference on the ground -- a viewpoint many Democratic voters might not embrace."

It's quite a "tonal shift" for the Times itself, which just over a month ago declared in the lead sentence to a lead editorial:

"The news out of Iraq just keeps getting worse."

And liberal blogger Kevin Drum is "pissed off" about Healy's report.

Beautiful Troop Tribute

I can't wait for the Dems to claim credit for progress in Iraq.

I need a good laugh.

2008 is going to be a very interesting year, Marie. Like Mike, I can't wait to hear them credit for progress in Iraq either. We know they will because they believe the American people are too stupid to remember what they have said or done. Of course they're right when it comes to the far-left liberals, but most people have better memories than they think. At least I hope they do!

I agree with Mike, it won't be long before they claim it was their plan that succeeded.

They are backed into a corner and Iraq will be their Achilles Heal in 08!

Well then we will have to repeatedly throw it back in thier faces that they were and are the Cut-N-Run party. Invested in Retreat-In-Defeat, and Surrender.

They dont have the right to claim victory since they were against the War and our Troops all along!!
