Why Do We Call Them "Defeatocrats"?

Because they say things like this:

“I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week,” Reid said, on the same day US President George W. Bush was giving a speech at an Ohio town hall meeting defending the war on terror.

It’s amazing that a US Senator would be out demoralizing the troops like this. Even if you think you ARE losing a war, you never SAY you’re losing a war, Harry. It demoralizes the troops and emboldens the enemy.

If you really thought the war was a lose cause, wouldn’t you and the other Democrats push to end it, instead of just “advising” to end it?

It’s all about the politics. Having something that’s an actual policy and something that would help our country and Iraq– well, that’s just not something the defeatocrats can come up with. So their solution is “If both Iraq and the US can’t win, then let’s make sure we both lose.”

As inept as the Republicans have been lately, at least they’re not attempting to completely sabotage US troop morale.

EDIT: I just posted this over at HotAir…. if the Democrats truly believe we’ve lost the war, and they won’t end the war, then they’re perfectly happy to throw the lives of American soldiers away on a lost war. By inference, they must hate the troops to want to senselessly waste their lives like that. If they truly supported them, they’d be fighting tooth & nail to save them in an unwinnable war.

Unless they really do think the war is winnable, and they want to stealthily support the troops to avoid upsetting the base by saying they’ve lost, but in reality they think they’re winning and they’re “opposing” the war without opposing it so they can later take credit for not stopping the war they thought we were losing but instead were really funding in a double-secret kind of way!

Whew. That’s crazy run-on sentence.

    Should the Democrats simply lie and say that the war is won? I mean it worked for Bush and his “Mission Accomplished” publicity event. Was that political? I bet you wouldn’t say so (b/c you don’t have a response to logical thought, like the right in general).

    Furthermore I do not see how telling the President that the War is lost is being against the troops. Isn’t that being against the idiotic foreign and war policy created by this administration? Republicans do not have an answer to this so they do what they are best at doing – mislead. You and your kind will take any statement that is against a war started by an inept president and say that it is against the troops when the fact of the matter is that the troops don’t have a say in whether they go to war or not. I have friends who have one off to fight this war and MANY of them feel that this war is pointless and not worth the lives of their buddies. So if these troops (Naval, Marine and Army) say that they are against the war, are they against themselves?

    The fact is that Republicans are allowing the death of all these young men. As was stated by the Iraq Study Group, this invasion has led to an increase in Terrorist activity, so the notion that “we fight them over there, so we don’t have to fight them over here” is actually counter-productive (if any of you know what that means). While we are on the subject the ISG also recommended that there NOT be an increase in troop levels. This was an independent group created by a Republican Congress to investigate the War independent of influence from the White House. The White House welcomed the group and then ignored them.

    OK, I could go on all day picking apart any and all your thoughts, but this is enough for this post…
