Under an Obama administration, liberals will oppose the Afghan War, call for withdrawal, condemn Bush for getting us into it, and codemn it as they attack the Iraq War now:
The Weekly Standard
nd then thereâ€™s this finding from yesterdayâ€™s ABC/WaPo poll:
On Afghanistan, however, independents side more closely with Republicans than with Democrats. Majorities of Republicans and independents think the war in Afghanistan was worth fighting and that the effort there is linked to the eventual defeat of terrorism more broadly. Majorities of Democrats disagree.
If a majority of Democrats disagree the war was worth fighting in the first place, you can wager a mega-majority of Netrootsâ€™ denizens disagree. And yet the left is silent regarding Obamaâ€™s belligerence towards the Afghanistan theatre. Itâ€™s positively puzzling. Could the explanation be that the left has suddenly developed, contra the ABC/WaPo poll, an unprecedented enthusiasm for extirpating Jihadists?
Liberals and the left need an Obama administration. Otherwise, it is unlikely that Americans will withdraw from Afghanistan.
