Dem Position: No Official Position!

(Washington Post) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said yesterday that Democrats should not seek a unified position on an exit strategy in Iraq, calling the war a matter of individual conscience and saying differing positions within the caucus are a source of strength for the party.

Pelosi said Democrats will produce an issue agenda for the 2006 elections but it will not include a position on Iraq. There is consensus within the party that President Bush has mismanaged the war and that a new course is needed, but House Democrats should be free to take individual positions, she said.

Now that my friends is some spin. The Bush Administration has nothing on that. Nancy must be taking Ralph Waldo Emerson’s word for it, believing that

“Our strength grows out of our weaknesses”.

Me, I’ll take Jack Handy’s idea on it:

“If you think a weakness can be turned into strength, I hate to tell you this, but that’s another weakness.”
Because
“When mental energy is allowed to follow the line of least resistance and to fall into easy channels, it is called weakness.” – James Allen

Yeah, I know, I got quote crazy…
