Pelosi and company will fight this all the way to hell, caring nothing about our troops.
But the good news is that House Repubs, along with a clear majority of Senate Repubs and dems do not support Pelosi’s and Murtha’s approach and ideas for a new supplemental bill. Pelosi and Murtha want to substitute timetables with difficult to reach benchmarks in short periods of time (60 days financing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, then the President would have certify that the Iraqi government had met certain goals, followed by another vote in the House for an additional 60 days funding). This tactic has no chance of success, not going to happen.
They will lose, and they will do more to help a Republican get elected as President in 2008 than anything Republicans could do.
Don’t worry. Our Republican congressmen and senators will resolutely defend against such a Dem Party tactic.
We can count on the Repubs to be united and steadfast in standing up to the bullying tactics of the Dems.
Right? Right? Do I hear an “amen”?
