Cole: ‘I hope the Dems don’t turn victory into defeat.’

U.S. Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) shared on The Hill’s Congress Blog this morning:

It would take a willing suspension of belief to ignore the progress that has been made as a result of the surge. The consequences of failure as well as the benefits of victory were laid out brilliantly in compelling testimony from General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker.

By every objective measure security in Iraq is better, political progress has occurred and we have positive as opposed to negative momentum. I just hope my Democratic colleagues do not manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
