What does Democrat posturing on Iraq boil down to?

Don Surber nails it in these comments on Harry Reid's comments from mid-week:

I don’t know if Reid truly thinks the cause is lost or he overplayed the hyperbole. I mean, I never trust anything that politicians say. If they tell me the sun will rise in the east tomorrow, I get up early the next morning just to be sure.

The editorial ended:

Sen. Reid then attempted the old cushion shot — “deny everything and make counter-accusations” — as he sought to shift the blame to those who had criticized him the day before.”The partisans who launched attacks on my comments are the same ones who continue to support a failed strategy that hurts our troops,” Sen. Reid said.

Ah. But it doesn’t “hurt our troops” to tell them — and the enemy — that our Marines and G.I.s are risking their lives in a lost cause before they even suit up and start their engines for this morning’s patrol?

By the way, Reid was among the 77 senators who voted to send the troops into Iraq. It was popular then. Now that it no longer is popular, he opposes the war.
Support the troops? He exploited them.
