He has been trying to build his campaign on the idea of protecting human life from womb to death, and across the globe.  That agenda cannot advance by retreating from the field on which the most pivotal of the current battles is being waged.  Perhaps Senator Brownback will also recognize that in the days ahead and back victory in Iraq. ~Hugh Hewitt

No wonder Mitt Romney has mostly been keeping his mouth shut about Iraq.  Even when you are absolutely for what Hewitt would call victory and absolutely supportive of the war, as Brownback is, you cannot satisfy the raving loons who claim to be the voice of popular conservatism in America.  I don’t support Brownback, I don’t much like Brownback, but the ignorant people on both sides of the surge debate who keep thinking that Brownback is somehow less than 100% pro-war are driving me up the wall.
