Someone's Obviously Not Paying Attention

Not long after the President gave his Strategy for Victory in Iraq speech, Senator John Kerry had to open his mouth and swap feet.
The debate is not about "an artificial date for withdrawal," Kerry said. For Democrats, it's about "an estimated timetable for success," he said.
Isn't that what the President did in that speech?
No one has ever suggested that we should "run in the face of car bombers or assassins," Kerry said, referring to a line in Bush's speech. "No one is talking about running in face of a challenge..."
Senator, you're wrong. Flat out wrong. Congressman Murtha suggested just that.
An influential House Democrat who voted for the Iraq war called Thursday for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, another sign of growing unease in Congress about the conflict.

“It is time for a change in direction,” said Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., one of Congress’ most hawkish Democrats. “Our military is suffering; the future of our country is at risk. We cannot continue on the present course. It is evident that continued military action in Iraq is not in the best interests of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf region.”
Maybe Senator Kerry just missed that press conference... and the firestorm that followed. Let's look at what else he had to be mistaken about.
Kerry specifically criticized the president for refusing to acknowledge that U.S. troops on the ground are feeding the insurgency in Iraq.
uh... Senator... Syria is feeding the insurgency. Al Q is feeding the insurgency. Radical Islam is feeding the insurgency. US troops are protecting the nation they just recently liberated.

I don't even know we bother listening to the Democrats when it comes to Iraq and the War on Terror. The only who gets anything right about it Senator Lieberman, and the MSM pretty much ignores him.
