Iraq war now Democrats' problem?

Reported by Chrish - January 4, 2007 -

John Gibson's "Word" today 1/4/07 is "The Democrats have taken over the Congress and by extension they also get the Iraq war. Maybe they'll do better with it than George W. Bush. " His real target, however, is Cindy Sheehan.

Says Gibson:

"I do know one thing that Bush is probably very happy about: The Democrats who spent the last three years demonizing him have now inherited Cindy Sheehan.

Boy wonder Rahm Emanuel led the Democrats takeover of the House. For months now, he no doubt watched TV news with undisguised pleasure as Cindy Sheehan screeched at Bush, camped in front of his ranch, and wandered around the world inventing fresh insults to throw at him.

Now she is Rahm Emanuel's problem. Welcome to the chaos of the angry left, Mr. Congressman. You used these people to whip up fervor against the war and against Bush. Congratulations. It worked. And now she is yours. She and her fellow travelers on the angry left now turn to the Democrats with their screeching that the war must stop now. What part of now don't you understand, Mr. Congressman?

Let's see if Democrats can control the people on their own team if in their hyperventilating about the war they have not only ginned up a huge headwind for George Bush, but they have reaped the whirlwind for themselves as well."

Let's see if the Democrats can't take some free speech in stride, and listen to the American people who put them in office, without resorting to insulting those Americans. Maybe they'll do better with it than George W. Bush.
