America's War

Dirty Harry Reid, in between corrupt land deals in Nevada, said today that he intends to bring vote after vote on withdrawal dates and cutting funds for the war in Iraq. He intends to brand the war the Republican's war. Not America's war, not even Bush's war, as they tried to call it over the summer break. Now it's just the Republican's war. What a creepy loser.

What do we call him now?

After the President's press conference yesterday, ABC News said they regretted not carrying the press conference. They didn't want to disrupt the soap operas and game shows with the current events of the country, I guess.

What do we call them now?

Later yesterday, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), got his resolution condemning the MoveOn ad through the Senate business, after being denied the opportunity previously. So, while General Petraeus was unanimously voted 'yes' to his leading the surge policy in Iraq, while he was the beneficiary of platitudes from left and right, while the leaders of foreign countries voiced approval of him as the leader of the military operations in Iraq, the MoveOn people were cooking up their own little campaign to impugn him publicly. Yesterday, as the vote was taken on the resolution, 24 Dems and 1 Socialist, no Republicans, voted to congratulate MoveOn for their ad. They have no intention of doing anything to stop the monetary contributions to their campaign coffers from this group, led by George Soros.

What do we call the no voters now?

Twenty-two Dems and 1 Independent voted with the Republicans to condemn the ad. President Bush finally spoke out against the ad and the Dems who continue to applaud and kowtow to the MoveOn people, lead by Eli Pariser, Soros' front man.

What do we call them?

Here's the resolution:

SEC. 1070. SENSE OF SENATE ON GENERAL DAVID PETRAEUS
(a) Findings. - The Senate makes the following findings:

(1) The Senate unanimously confirmed General David H. Petraeus as Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq, by a vote of 81-0 on January 26, 2007.
(2) General Petraeus graduated first in his class at the United States Army Command and General Staff College.
(3) General Petraeus earned Masters of Public Administration and Doctoral degrees in international relations from Princeton University.
(4) General Petraeus has served multiple combat tours in Iraq, including command of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) during combat operations throughout the first year of Operation Iraqi Freedom, which tours included both major combat operations and subsequent stability and support operations.
(5) General Petraeus supervised the development and crafting of the United States Army and Marine Corps counterinsurgency manual based in large measure on his combat experience in Iraq, scholarly study, and other professional experiences.
(6) General Petraeus has taken a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
(7) During his 35-year career, General Petraeus has amassed a distinguished and unvarnished record of military service to the United States as recognized by his receipt of a Defense Distinguished Service Medal, two Distinguised Service Medals, two Defense Superior Service Medals four Legions of Merit, the Bronze Star Medal for valor, the State Department Superior Honor Award, the NATO Meritorious Service Medal, and other awards and medals.
(8) A recent attack through a full-page advertisement in the New York Times by the liberal activist group, MoveOn.org, impugns the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces.
b) Sense of Senate. - It is the sense of the Senate-
(1) to affirm its support for all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, including General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq;
(2) to strongly condemn any effort to attack the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces;and
(3) to specifically repudiate the unwarranted personal attack on General Petraeus by the liberal activist group Moveon.org.

Hardly going out on a limb for a General leading our country and her soldiers in war.

Three didn't vote: Biden, Cantwell and Obama. All Dems. Two running for President.

What do we call them?

Obama was seen on the floor of the Senate minutes before the vote, speaking in favor of a resolution put up by Barbara Boxer, D-CA and a surrender monkey. Then he scurried off as this vote was taken.

None of the Dems running for President voted to condemn the ad.

What do we call them?

According to the most recent polls: 61% approval for General Petraeus, 11% approval for Congress.

Dirty Harry is doing a splendid job.

Today a vote was taken demanding the withdrawal of troops in Iraq in 9 months. It failed by 13 votes. Take a vote every day and use a different number. They are pulling them out of the air anyway.

Dirty Harry is doing a splendid job.

Cowards and dangerous, because of their positions, all. Who have adopted certain departed communist dictator's tactics of attack, attack, hold or pullback, no matter how long it takes. By cowardice, socialism and deception.

The difference in both parties has never, in my lifetime, been so stark and clear. This coming election may redefine America forever and we shall see what the majority want.

I hope we can keep voting by illegal immigrants and the dead to a minimum.

Harry Reid is working hard to get Congress' approval rating to dip into the single digit category.

I really cannot relate at all to most of these dems.

ABC didn't show the President's press conference? I bet if there had been another O.J. or Britney news flash, they would have interrupted for that.

They decide what they want their viewers to see, and they don't want them seeing Bush. Very sad.

61% vs 11% - Priceless!
