REMINDER: Look for the "War Caused Recession" Arguments From Dems This Week
Here’s a reminder for those of you who missed this earlier-
–Expect to hear this theme repeated ad nauseum by Democrats and the media during testimony by General David Petraeus on the War in Iraq this week:

Far Left Groups & Media Collude on Election Strategy
MoveOn.org wants you to write a letter to your local paper demanding that the US stop the illegal War in Iraq and put that money in social programs.
Far Left groups announced recently that they will work together to promote the meme that the suffering economy was caused by the War in Iraq.
Think Progress announced the latest drive to lose on February 25th:
Today, a coalition of progressive groups — including MoveOn, the Center for American Progress Action Fund , US Action, SEIU, VoteVets, and Americans United for Change — announced a new “Iraq/Recession” campaign, a $15 million nationwide effort to end the war and refocus our priorities here at home. The campaign will raise awareness of the domestic costs that have been neglected due to Bush and John McCain’s singular focus on Iraq.
John and Elizabeth Edwards joined in a conference call this morning to announce the campaign. “If the economy is your No. 1 issue when you’re voting, the war is also your No. 1 issue because there is a connection between the two,” Elizabeth Edwards said.
…A new poll of swing voters commissioned by US Action found that a huge majority — 69 percent of them — support ending the war and reinvesting in health care and new clean energy jobs. A recent AP poll found that 68 percent of Americans believe pulling our troops out of Iraq would help a great deal or somewhat in addressing our faltering economy.
Since the democrats cannot successfully promote their original cut and run strategy due to the enormous success of the Bush Surge under the direction of General Petraeus, look for democrats and the corrupt media to push this new meme to voters.
Look for this aargument to be repeated often by the Democrats this week who will want to twist the good news from Iraq for their own political gain.
And… Don’t ever forget that Democrats wanted to retreat from this war and still do.
