Another anti-war Democrat concedes Bush is right on Iraq by American Elephant

The Pelosi-Reid “party before country” coalition takes another hit:

We’re on the ground now. We have a responsibility to the Iraqi people and a strategic interest in making this work.

I think we’re making real progress.

I think the consequences of pulling back precipitously would be potentially catastrophic for the Iraqi people themselves, to whom we have a tremendous responsibility … and in the long run chaotic for the region as a whole and for our own security.

~Representative Brian Baird (D) WA

Baird is a 5-term Democrat congressman and an Iraq war opponent who voted against the war. Now he echoes President Bush—the surge is working, pulling out would be disastrous, and its in our strategic interests to stay.

In other words, one more Democrat admits the obvious.
