Hillary Clinton comments on Iraq withdrawal

You know that the Democrats are pretty far left when even Hillary Clinton starts to sound like a moderate.

According to AP:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq would be "a big mistake."

The New York Democrat said she respects Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Pa., the Vietnam veteran and hawkish ex-Marine who last week called for an immediate troop pullout. But she added: "I think that would cause more problems for us in America."

Of course, the obligatory two-step has to follow, wherein she tries in true Democrat fashion to cover all the angles at once:

At the same time, Clinton said the Bush administration's pledge to stay in Iraq "until the job is done" amounts to giving the Iraqis "an open-ended invitation not to take care of themselves."

Rubbish. And incredibly derogatory toward the Iraqi people, who display courage and bravery every day in trying to build a free country. Besides, people who don't want to take care of themselves vote Democrat, Senator, so maybe you should support an "open-ended" invitation.

She blamed the problems facing the United States in Iraq on "poor decision-making by the administration," but added: "My view is we have to work together to fix these problems."

Guess those problems have nothing to do with the terrorists, hey?

It'll be interesting to see how the leftists react to this.
