DU/Dems Unhappy With Their Own! LOL!

It's Official: No Withdrawal Timeline In Congressional Dems' Bill
By Greg Sargent

Speaker Nancy Pelosi will present a plan to House Democrats for a war funding bill that won't include a timeline for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq but will feature benchmarks with consequences, according to Democratic leadership aides...

Leadership aides said the benchmarks would be tied to Iraq reconstruction aid and would require President Bush to present to Congress 18 reports before August.

They said Democrats won't give up on a deadline for pulling troops out of Iraq, hoping to write language into defense appropriations and defense authorization bills over the summer.


DUers Chime In:

--That's too simple for the dems in leadership. They are too afraid of being called terra-supporters and worse. They forgot their oath to protect the constitution, they forgot their duty to their electorate. I am disgusted with our party today. Shame on them.

--That's bull, and so is this caving in by the Dem leadership. Nancy Pelosi just lost all respect and support by me. It is an illegal and immoral occupation. It was set up because Cheney and his criminal crew skewed the intel. They have played us, and the Dem leadership for fools for 6 years, and it looks like even with a majority, we were played again, this time by Bush/Cheney AND Pelosi. I am so angry at this moment that I could scream. SHAME on PELOSI.

--The only consequence is that the Dems will draw another line in the sand... and say,"Ok,we really mean it this time. Don't cross this line or we'll be forced to draw another one!"

--They seem to all vote the same way in the end. They seem to love kissing the toes of the illegally anointed idiot. Where is a party that has guts TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT!!!!????? Not the Democratic party. That's for sure. I'm voting out every Dem I am able to unless they strongly oppose Bush and don't EVER BACK DOWN.

--Can you sleep at night thinking of how many more GIs will come home in coffins because the Democrats bent over to Bush, once again? The American people voted for a Democratic Congress to change course in Iraq, not to have another Vichy surrender.

--In the meantime, the war crimes continue and Iraqis die so our politicians... can avoid risk. I don't "support the troops" in the same way you evidently do. I don't support their mission, I don't support what they're doing, and I don't give a rats buttocks if they're having a hard time occupying Iraq against international law. They're committing crimes in our name. Congress is the only institution of government in this country that even CAN stand up and put a stop to this.

--They aren't coming home because DEMS are now paying to keep them in Iraq. Thanks for nothing, Nancy Pelosi!

--Honestly? I don't give a fuck.

--Hell, Pelosi took the defunding option off the table before this Congress was even seated. So yeah, I know it doesn't have support, that's what I'm pissed about. The Dems have an easy weapon for ending this war sitting in their hands, and they refuse to use it. A weapon that doesn't require a vote nor a signature, just the collective Democratic will. And apparently the Dems are lacking in that, along with a spine.

--Since Bush won't budge or compromise, Congress shouldn't either - just keep passing supplemental bills that contain withdrawal dates, and he'll continue to veto them, until he's run out of money to play his war games. That effectively would cut off funding. Finding any kind of legislation that he'll sign is nothing more another form of a blank check for this criminal war enterprise. I'm ashamed of the Dem leadership today. Truly ashamed and disgusted. Our votes last November didn't mean squat.

--They hope to fool us and they are going to have their asses handed to them on this one. If it is the last thing any of us does, I hope Nancy Pelosi rues the day she said impeachment was off the table. Madame Speaker screwed up big time then and she and her fellow invertebrates are screwing up with this too. We will not tolerate this and they are mistaken to think we will. They've ignored us thus far but they will not be able to much longer or if they do, they do it at their own political peril.

--If they don't grow some balls soon, they're going to be awfully surprised in '08!

"The Dems have an easy weapon for ending this war sitting in their hands..." Common sense tells anyone that you can't tell the enemy what you are doing. No timeline! That's just plain dumb. What the dems refuse to see is that terrorist have been attacking us for years and years. 9/11 was not the first attack, but it was the last straw.

I hope the dems are reading up on their soon-to-be new muslim religion. Don't they see what will happen if we allow a muslim takeover in this or any country? The plan is simple...and relentless! You become muslim or you die. Personally, I am committed to reading left to right!
