Dems Dusting Off White Flags
Under [Pinky] Reid's plan, the Senate will cast separate votes on whether to cut off funding for combat next year, order troop withdrawals within four months, impose stricter standards on the length of combat tours and rescind congressional authorization for the Iraqi invasion.
The measures likely will be offered as amendments to the 2008 defense authorization bill, a measure that approves $649 billion in military spending. (source)
I understand that they're doing this to appease the radical left faction of their party, but that's a very small strategy.
All the Dems on teh sane side of the extreme left will watch their party's leadership strain mightily to pass nothing, not even a gnat. They will watch as they insult our troops and give hope to our enemies with the clear knowledge that this harm will be done for nothing.
How can the Reid posse see gain in this fixation with defeat, with each defeat feeding Bush, the GOP and the supporters of the war?
Addiction, in this case to Bush hatred, is a terrible, terrible thing.
