Reid and Pelosi: “The surge has failed”

I knew it was just a matter of time before Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi revived their cut-and-run “strategy” for fighting the Islamists. Here we go again:

In light of the additional evidence since your veto that your plan is not working, it is clear that a course correction in Iraq is needed. That is also the view of a substantial majority of the American people. Rather than respond with a new plan immediately, Administration officials as well as Republican congressional leaders suggest that your flawed Iraq strategy not be revisited until September when General Petraeus is scheduled to provide Congress with a progress report on Iraq. The only step you have proposed in the interim is to divest your National Security Advisor of control over Iraq policy and create a “war czar” position, an act that has only served to create further confusion and concerns about your plans for Iraq.
The American people cannot and should not have to wait until later this year for changes in your flawed Iraq policy. There is an obligation to act now. That is why we intend to again send you legislation that would limit the U.S. mission in Iraq, begin the phased redeployment of U.S. forces, and bring the war to a responsible end. These are goals consistent with both the national security of the United States and the will of the American people. We respectfully request that you reconsider your previous opposition to proposals that would accomplish these goals, and work with us to give our troops a strategy worthy of their sacrifice. We look forward to discussing these issues with you when we meet at the White House later today to discuss stability in the Middle East.

I warned you. The American Left cares only for its own power, can’t (or won’t) look past the next election, has its heart set on military defeat, and is now skating just about as close to treason as they can get without crossing the line. Click the graphic:

The Pessimist's Checklist

I eagerly await the GOP presidential candidates’ responses. Especially Fred Thompson’s.

6/15 Update: A hilariously brilliant rebuttal. Thanks for finding this one, Andy.

    I guess the media attention has been so lite on Frick and Frat that they had to do something to get the cameras back on themselves.
