And you thought I was over-reacting.

I argued here a couple days ago that liberals are intentionally trying to erode domestic support for the war in order to lose it, while others on the right are unintentionally defending them by assuming liberals are oblivious to the damage their sedition causes.

Don't take my word for it, take a Democratic strategist's word for it:
For a while last week, the Democrats were doing better at framing the issues. The poll numbers showed that Bush’s approval rating was down, that around 60% of the voters had turned against the Iraq War, that support for Bush on his handling of 911 and terrorism was lower, but still pretty high.

They correctly recognized in the numbers that the public had begun to separate Iraq from 911, and they recognized the relevance of the Downing Street memo in showing that Bush had betrayed the trust of the American people in sending troops into Iraq on false pretenses. They had begun to form an anti-Iraq-War caucus and to hammer home the consequences of these development. And even staunch Republicans were listening to their arguments and coming to Bush to suggest withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
In desperation after President Bush framed the war in proper context, the liberal mask of artificial military support is beginning to suffocate the wearers.
