The House is voting on the "Immediate Troop Withdrawal From Iraq Resolution - 571:
Yea = 3
present = 6
Nay = 157
Yea = ZERO
Nay = 215
and no one voting present.
This is the final count at 8:33p.m.
The House voted 403-3 to reject a nonbinding resolution calling for an immediate troop withdrawal.
I thank you for your efforts.
I am glad beyond words that our commanders do not base their decisions and analyses for the security of our nation and the world - primarily on a very few carefully-selected, sorrowful letters from (presumably) military relatives, some of whom were manifestly partisans of the same political party as Murtha.
Overall a sad piece of work by Rep. Murtha. It was telling that he was the only distinguished vet put forth by the Democrats tonight while the Republicans had distinguished vet after distinguished vet.
LMAO! Stop it! I'm in tears.
They will not see this , whatever size font. Bunch of head choping, pig loving, rat licking, blood sucking, child killing, filth smelling terrorist bastards.
...uh...posted several posts ago...lame.
I'll take that as a "no".
This was the vote count I was asking about at the rally - one person thought it was a close vote. I'm happy to report that was not the case.
Yes, precisely, I agree wholeheartedly and unobsequiously.
I've always found that people who have the need to ask others "getting any" do so because they live vicariously through others.
Err, I wasn't calling you a Moran, just saying that nut Moran was probably one of those 3 votes.
Some people too lazy to hit "Last" and go back a page or two...
WASHINGTON - The House on Friday overwhelmingly rejected calls for an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq, a vote engineered by the Republicans that was intended to fail. Democrats derided the vote as a political stunt.
Should a guy have to search through a 6,000+ post thread to find the final vote tally of this extremely important breaking news?
This is the new media, sometimes events like this need a 2nd or even 3rd thread to clarify important points of the overall discussion.
He should have followed up the title with "House Republicans grow a spine, first time for this session."
Gunny Bob mentioned the Freepers as he was signing off his show tonite - was praising you guys! Coooool!
I didn't ask. If you took the time to search, you'd know that.
