Attacking Murtha Not The Answer

As big a fool as I believe Congressman John Murtha to be, Andrew Sullivan makes an excellent point when he says that it is not enough for the Republicans to attack him and other pullout advocates as "Michael Moore liberals". It is incumbent on the White House to make the arguments for staying the course as forcefully as possible. Sadly, this President is probably incapable of effectively doing that. It therefore falls on McCain, Guiliani and any other potential candidate for the presidency to speak out clearly and often about the importance of the outcome in Iraq for America.
