Walter Cronkite Pledges Defeatism

Austin Bay takes down cut-and-run guru Walter Cronkite:

Walter Cronkite is channeling John Murtha– or worse. According to the AP, Cronkite said regarding Iraq: “It’s my belief that we should get out now,” Cronkite said in a meeting with reporters.” Cronkite is a defeatist and –frankly– he’s out of touch...

Cronkite is proud of his role in the Tet Offensive. He told the American people the Vietnam war was unwinnable. Cronkite, it seems, is trying to relive the high point of his broadcast career. Unfortunately, not only is Iraq not Vietnam, the only Tet out there is his “tet”ched perception.

Go ahead and file old Walter under the same tab as Cindy Sheehan, Howard Dean, and the MoveOn.org-ers: ignorant of reality.
