"Defeatocrats" Lie: The Truth Died

It seems as though the new poll conducted by ABC in Iraq shows that the cut-and-run "Defeatocrat" crowd lied. What else is new? They lie at every turn they take, and every chance offered, all on the hopes that no one will check out their "facts." On would think that they would know by now that they will always be checked.

An ABC News poll in Iraq, conducted with Time magazine and other media partners, includes some remarkable results: Despite the daily violence there, most living conditions are rated positively, seven in 10 Iraqis say their own lives are going well, and nearly two-thirds expect things to improve in the year ahead.

Surprisingly, given the insurgents' attacks on Iraqi civilians, more than six in 10 Iraqis feel very safe in their own neighborhoods, up sharply from just 40 percent in a poll in June 2004. And 61 percent say local security is good — up from 49 percent in the first ABC News poll in Iraq in February 2004.
Nonetheless, nationally, security is seen as the most pressing problem by far; 57 percent identify it as the country's top priority. Economic improvements are helping the public mood.

Average household incomes have soared by 60 percent in the last 20 months (to $263 a month), 70 percent of Iraqis rate their own economic situation positively, and consumer goods are sweeping the country. In early 2004, 6 percent of Iraqi households had cell phones; now it's 62 percent. Ownership of satellite dishes has nearly tripled, and many more families now own air conditioners (58 percent, up from 44 percent), cars, washing machines and kitchen appliances.

There are positive political signs as well. Three-quarters of Iraqis express confidence in the national elections being held this week, 70 percent approve of the new constitution, and 70 percent — including most people in Sunni and Shiite areas alike — want Iraq to remain a unified country.
Interest in politics has soared.

Preference for a democratic political structure has advanced, to 57 percent of Iraqis, while support for an Islamic state has lost ground, to 14 percent (the rest, 26 percent, chiefly in Sunni Arab areas, favor a "single strong leader.")

Whatever the current problems, 69 percent of Iraqis expect things for the country overall to improve in the next year — a remarkable level of optimism in light of the continuing violence there. However, in a sign of the many challenges ahead, this optimism is far lower in Sunni Arab-dominated provinces, where just 35 percent are optimistic about the country's future.

Wow, this reads a lot like the Lieberman op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, does it not. Positive things are coming out of Iraq. Sure there are problems, but not the amount of problems that the Left is continually detailing. Remember Rep. Murtha claiming that 80% of the nation wanted us out of their country? Not true at all. Around 25-30% of them want us out of Iraq. The rest of them want us there. Just over 50% polled stated they wanted us to stay only until their forces are up and running at full capacity. They know that right now they need us there.

Anyone remember John Kerry's statements that our troops were "terrorizing" the Iraqis? One would think that ABC News, AKA Al-Jazeera West, would highlight such things in this piece. It is nowhere to be found. No such allegations by anyone interviewed by ABC or Time. And as for the Left's spin that Iraqis would never embrace a democracy, today the early voting for the parliamentary elections have begun. Iraqi officials are stating that already, they are overwhelmed by the amount of people showing up to the polls. (BTW, in a show of solidarity, many Americans are also dipping their fingers in purple ink--http://www.purplefingerforfreedom.org/. Please, if you wish to join in, do so.

The president's plan is working. If the Left would leave him alone, and quit interfering, he could focus on the rest of the Iraq Phase in this war. But no, they are going to continue hammering away at him. They so despise this president that he haunts their waking moments, their times of slumber, and I am sure he even invades their best dreams turning them into horrific nightmares.

I can just imagine the dreams of Joe Biden or Chuck Schumer staring at a Supreme Court of nine Souters or Ginsburgs morphing into 9 Chief Justice Roberts, or worse, nine Scalias. Heh-heh. I can even sense the "Howling Mad" Howard dEan scream that would escape from their lips. "YEEEAAARGH!!"

Seriously though, the Left has lied again, and they have been caught. They are not going to apologize for using these figures. They are going to claim that this is "right-wing propaganda" that "twists and manipulates" the facts. The problem with this party is that they have taken the old adage about truth, and embraced it to a point that makes no sense.

"Truth is a three-edged sword; your side, their side, and the real truth." For the Left, they believe their side is the real truth. Numbers do not lie. Liberals do. I would like to see Rep. Murtha step forward, and admit he was using concocted numbers, but I doubt that will happen. But I would like to paraphrase the Marine colonel that Rep. Schmidt quoted that the Democrats booed during the floor debate.

"The Left lies and runs; Marines never do."

Shame on you, Rep. Murtha. You have given into the ideology of the Left, and discarded the honor of a United States Marine.
