A long, long time ago (okay it was June 15th), Congressman Gil Gutknecht (R-MN) stood in the House and proclaimed: “Members, now is not the time to go wobbly. Let’s give victory a chance.” Then a month later he took a trip to the war zone:
“The condition there is worse than I expected,” he said. “... I have to be perfectly candid: Baghdad is a serious problem.”
Gutknecht went on to compare Iraq to a child learning to ride a bicycle, saying:
" America needs to be willing to let the country suffer some bruises as it attempts to take charge of its own affairs. “I think it’s time to take off the training wheels of their bicycle,”
Finally, someone stops listening to the Whitehouse spin and actually goes and sees for himself. And his mind is opened. Let's hope and pray that more of the kool-aid drinkers will take an honest look for theirselves...for the sake of the children.
