Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday that Democrats won't approve more money for the Iraq war this year unless President Bush agrees to begin bringing troops home.Don't forget, though, that they support our Troops. Really. I heard them say it once.
By the end of the week, the House and Senate planned to vote on a $50 billion measure for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bill would require Bush to initiate troop withdrawals immediately with the goal of ending combat by December 2008.
If Bush vetoes the bill, "then the president won't get his $50 billion," Reid, D-Nev., told reporters at a Capitol Hill news conference.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., made a similar statement last week in a closed-door caucus meeting.
Now if only they could SHOW IT. That would be nice, but I'm not counting on it.
Harry and Nancy, forcing the Pentagon to juggle the books so that you can make a political show for you MoveOn.org constituency at the expense of our men and women in uniform is not support; it's a sickening display of partisan pandering to the lowest common denominator in our society. The actions of you and your fellow Democrats to date have caused me to question the love and devotion that the majority of you hold for this nation.
Stop pissing on our heads while telling us it's raining. We know the difference, and we can see what you truly are.
