As if it's not enough to have members of Congress openly encouraging the terrorists in Iraq with their words of opposition to completing the job over there... Now we have pipsqueak Harry Reid boasting about making a public spectacle of waving the white flag in front of the jihadists...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, at a briefing with other Senate Democratic leaders, boasted that he could win over 12 Republicans to sign a nonbinding resolution opposing a troop increase.
Democrats say they hope to bring the resolution to a vote next week and confront Mr. Bush with official opposition from senators in his own party. "That will be the beginning of the end of the war in Iraq," Mr. Reid said.
Reminds me of when he boasted of killing the Patriot Act. What an ass.
Speaking of asses, did you catch Barbara Boxer's little bitch fit during Condi Rice's testimony yesterday? Here's the scoop from the NY Post...
Rice appeared before the Senate in defense of President Bush's tactical change in Iraq, and quickly encountered Boxer.
"Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price," Boxer said. "My kids are too old, and my grandchild is too young."
Then, to Rice: "You're not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family."
Hey Babs - real Americans are paying the price whether or not they have loved ones serving bravely in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our COUNTRY is at war - not just the soldiers. The referee should have tossed Boxer out of the chamber for unsportsmanlike conduct - that was truly an unnecessary low blow.
