Republicans Block Surrender (AP Breaking)
ASS press

Posted on 07/18/2007 8:23:55 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Senate Republicans have mustered enough votes to scuttle a proposed troop withdrawal from Iraq. A roll call is continuing and the vote is not final.

This is EXACTLY how the "news alert" from the ASS press reads. I can smell the bias, can't you?

Yes. But in this case, they are right.

This bill, if passed,would have been a ‘surrender’.

It should be interesting to see which democrats voted against surrender.

Referring to it as a surrender actually seems biased in favor of the Republicans to me. Not that I’m complaining.

Pakistan must fear a civil war itself if it turns OBL over to the US.

You just have to think we know where he is but politics keeps us from taking him, be it Pakistan, Iran or Syria.

I don’t have a problem with this headline, it’s accurate and portrays Republicans who voted against withdrawal in a good light...though I doubt that was their intention.

Now, if smart, the Republicans will capitalize on this headline and start helping to reverse public opinion about the war instead of retiring to their Senate offices and letting the NYT’s dictate the tone until September.

What they did was good here, Leiberman included, but it’s worthless if they shut up and do not petitiion their citizens to examine the real facts on the ground and stay resolute.

I thought John Kerry said yesterday there was 60 senators or more that would vote for change in Iraq. I guess we see he is the liar he has shown us in the past.

Republicans Block Surrender

IMO, if this is how the title was written, it makes the Dems looks real bad. Even they won't admit they want to surrender. They do, but they don't want it phrased that way. I think "redeploy" is the democrat term for surrender.

I am 100% sure that we do not know where he is. There is no way that the President knows where he is and does not go and get him.

The change in Iraq the 60 senators are in favor of is sending Kerry and all the of the surrender-crats over there to test for road side bombs.

The only meaningful Senate majority is to have at least 60 Senators from the same party or else it can be grid lock all the time which is very good in this.

The Traitorcrats fail to bring down our Armed Forces and hand Al-Qaeda a victory. What a sad and pathetic creature Dingy Harry Reid is.
We have to make sure that he is “Daschled” in his next election.

Michelle Malkin:

Update 11:42am Eastern. Eeenteresting. Reid moves for consideration of the homeland security appropriations bill, HR2638. McConnell: Asks when the bill will be taken up. Next week? Reid says now. McConnell objects for the moment. Reid moves for cloture vote. Now, he’s moving to cloture vote on education bill. Specter objects. Notes that slumber party was a “colossal waste of time.” Reid cuts him off.

Could be we don’t know where OBL is because he’s dead. Which is what I’ve been saying since 2002. Of course I could be wrong, but it makes the most sense IMO.

This entire romper room episode with Senators on their cots sleeping and sucking their thumbs during nap time was nothing but PR BS... Dems knew they weren’t going to win, but its nice bread and circuses for the cameras and the drive by.

Really pisses me off that this is how the tax payers money is spent and how these idiot Senators spend their time instead of on real issues. Bringing in beds etc!

Harry Reid's juvenile prick prank failed.

What next?

Perhaps he will hold his breath and stamp his feet like a petulant, picayune, prepubescent pipsqueak angry at the grown-ups for not getting his wish.

There is a possibility that OBL is alive, well, and comfortable, living in the palace of a rich relative in Saudi Arabia who happens to be a member of the Saudi royal family. Since he’s a fellow member of the royal family, he’s receiving sanctuary. If true, the US government knows it, but because it’s the Saudi royal family we can’t touch him.

How’s that for a conspiracy theory? OK, pretty wacky, I admit. But that’s how things work with those people over there. And to some extent in our government here, too.

Perhaps we know exactly where he is. Perhaps we’ve known where he is since November 2001. As such, we’ve had his hideouts bugged and therefore know exactly what he and his followers are up to, thus enabling us to thwart his every move. Wouldn’t that be something?

Well, the Pubs managed to find enough spines to keep us from losing all our clout in the world. Good for them.

Too bad they couldn’t muster more fortitude when they had the majority, though.
