Congressman Paul Kanjorski (D-PA) comes up with today's dog-bites-man story, in which he admits that Democrats 'sort of stretched the facts' when it came to their ability to end the war. Here is the full quote:
"I'll tell you my impression. We really in this last election, when I say we...the Democrats, I think pushed it as far as we can to the end of the fleet, didn't say it, but we implied it. That if we won the Congressional elections, we could stop the war. Now anybody was a good student of Government would know that wasn't true. But you know, the temptation to want to win back the Congress, we sort of stretched the facts...and people ate it up."
Not true actually, as far as all Democrats go. You might remember this YouTube classic in which David Obey (D-MI) tells an anti-war activist, in very blunt terms, that ending the war right away is completely impossible.
As honest as Obey was here, can you really blame the hopelessly uniformed anti-war activist here for actually thinking the war would end right away as soon as the Dems took over Congress? Gee, I wonder where she got THAT idea from.
