Debra Burlingame about Sen. Obama’s “invade Pakistan” speech

Debra Burlingame spoke with syndicated talk-radio host Mark Levin this evening, leading off about Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s “illconsidered” speech where he suggested that the United States should invade Pakistan. In addition, she spoke of the Democratic Party’s deliberate undermining of our national defense and efforts in Iraq:

“I think there are people on the Hill who know perfectly well how strategically important Iraq is in this terrible war that we’re facing. But I think its politics. I think they have to beat down this President — and they started very quickly after 9/11 — to gain power back and they’re willing to put Americans and this country in danger to do it. I think that there are others who are naive, who believe what their advisers on the extreme left tell them. Maybe they’ve made a bargain with the devil, I don’t know, but it is a sad day when a Congressman of this United States says that a victory for the U.S. military is a bad thing for the Democrats.”
