General Petraus will be speaking before Congress this week. Last summer, as Ed Morrissey points out,
He had one Senator call him a liar to his face — a Senator that wants to be President, but has found it rougher going than she predicted. A major political organization that supports and is supported by many Democrats took out a full-page ad in the New York Times implying that Petraeus was a traitor, using a playground slur on his surname.
General Petraeus returns to Congress this week, a chastised Congress that has tried its best to avoid the Iraq debate ever since Petraeus proved them wrong in the fall and winter, but one that will undoubtedly remain hostile. Nancy Pelosi has already tried telling Petraeus that he’d better deliver a negative report — or else. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wants Petraeus to have a better welcome back to the US for his report.
Senator Mitch McConnell decided to provide the rest of us an opportunity to show our appreciation, or any other thoughts you might have about the General.
