Dems Make A Huge Mistake

149 House Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, voted against completing the mission in Iraq and honoring the sacrifices of American forces in that country. House Resolution 861 says that since the removal of Saddam Hussein…"the terrorists have declared Iraq to be the central front in their war against all who oppose their ideology." It "honors the sacrifices" of U.S. and allied forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and "declares that it is not in the national security interest of the United States to set an arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment" of U.S. troops from Iraq.

The resolution also "declares that the United States is committed to the completion of the mission to create a sovereign, free, secure and united Iraq," and it congratulates the new Iraqi prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, and the Iraqi people for participating in the 2005 elections and forming the first democratic government under Iraq's new constitution.


Democrats voted against the Iraqi government, the mission, the troops and the importance of the war on terror…need I say more.

OK a little more. The Iraq timetable issue, which is being pushed by the Dems, is pure politics for the obvious purpose of rallying their far-left base for the midterm elections. It is likely that many of the 149 sellouts Democrats voted against this resolution simply to placate that base. Meaning, they sacrificed integrity, loyalty, patriotism, and the chance to honor American forces to make the tinfoil people at the Daily Kos and MoveON.org happy. And at the same time, they are deriding Republicans for forwarding the resolution, claiming it was a political stunt. Nice try.

And If they knew it was a “stunt” then they have to be the dumbest politicians on this planet because now their un-American stance is on record. It would mean they are so beholden to the crazy-left that they would risk alienating moderate and swing voters just to protest what they claimed was a stunt. No wonder they can’t win elections. Is it really that hard for Democrats to support the troops, the mission, and the war most of them wanted, pushed for, and voted for?
