While big name Democrats have been following the DNC'c new talking points of defeatism (here, here and here), Reps. Kline and Kennedy, along with a few other House members spoke of the progress in Iraq.

Kennedy Shares the Good News on Iraq

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Mark Kennedy joined other House Members at a press conference to praise the progress that our military is making in Iraq.

"What I witnessed firsthand in Iraq last week is a story that you don't hear often enough. Progress was clear. I'm pleased that this year I saw great strides forward toward Iraq becoming a free and independent country," said Congressman Kennedy.

"It is critical that we remember and acknowledge these successes as the War on Terror progresses. We must remember that our soldiers deserve to have their success stories told," said Congressman Kennedy. "We must not focus on political gamesmanship, but instead on how to achieve victory in the War on Terror. I am confident that when our soldiers start coming home, it will be based on their successes and the successes of the Iraqi people."

Other Members in attendance were House Armed Services Committee Chairman Duncan Hunter, Reps. John Kline (MN), Tim Murphy (PA), Mike Sodrel (IN), all of whom recently returned from Iraq, as well as Rep. Joe Wilson, member of Armed Services Committee and Co-Chair of the Victory in Iraq Caucus, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Chair of the International Relations Subcommittee on Middle East and Central Asia.

A message to Democrats: When all you talk about is the doom and gloom, it is very easy to be blind to the progress over there.
