' "... There is nothing about the Bush team's performance in Iraq up to now that justifies a free pass. If Republicans don't get serious on Iraq, they will wake up a year from now and find all their candidates facing the same question: "How did your party lose Iraq?"

Excerpt--

Republicans seem to think they don't have to think when it comes to Iraq. They only have to applaud the president and whack the press for not reporting more good news from Baghdad — and everything will be fine. Well, think again.

I've often pointed out the good we have done in Iraq and unabashedly hoped for more. No regrets. But some recent trends leave me worried. Unfortunately, there are few Democrats to press my worries on the administration. Most Democrats either opposed the war (a perfectly legitimate position) or supported it and are now trying to disown it.

The new team, from cabinet members to senior advisors, brought with them close ties to many of the world's most powerful and abusive corporations. ...

The push has begun for the swift privatization of Iraq's state-run industries. ...

Some U.S. corporations with close ties to the White House have already cashed in. Most notably, Halliburton (formerly run by Vice President Cheney) has scored government contracts projected to bring in more than $2 billion. ...
 
In the end, however, it is the people who cast the ballots and elect our leaders. Advisors who care more about how decisions resonate on Wall Street than their impact on Main Street may be in for a rude awakening.

Patricia Lynn is Infact's campaign director. Since 1977, Infact has been exposing life-threatening abuses of transnational corporations and organizing successful grassroots campaigns to hold corporations accountable to consumers and society at large.
