Republican Congressmen Strike Back

Republican Congressmen are beginning to suggest that Democrats’ second-guessing of President Bush’s Iraq policy is hurting troop morale overseas. It’s a fair enough point, I think, and one that’s likely to be effective, given that recent polls indicate that a substantial majority of Americans think the Democrats’ criticisms are made for political reasons. The Democrats will be especially uncomfotable about the observation of an Arizona Republican that a recent Saddam Hussein tape “sounds like Democratic National Committee talking points.”
“Saddam Was Innocent!” is a good theme to rally hard-core Democratic primary voters, but it may not resonate well with the electorate as a whole.
