Why? For the love of God, why?
It's a meaningless, non-binding resolution. It's not worth the paper it's going to be printed on. It is just a cover for all the Senators who to claim they're doing something about Iraq without actually doing something, and having to take responsibility for it.
Hey, if you oppose the troop surge, then cut off funding. It's that easy. But voting in favor of the resolution, and then voting to pay for it is just pulling a John Kerry in reverse. You were against it before you were in favor it.
While I disagree with pretty much everything Senator Feingold says, I got to give him respect for actually putting his money where his mouth his- he wants to end the war, and he his doing everything he can to actually end it, instead of hiding behind a silly resolution.
An additional note. Isn't it funny how this is ALL the democrats did for 12 years in congress - all they did was try to block everything the Republicans did, we haven't talked about filibusters that much in decades. But you never saw headlines like you do this morning.
Big screaming letters everywhere.
SENATE REPUBLICANS BLOCK DEBATE ON IRAQ WAR.
Sometimes it's just laughable how biased the media is ...
I agree. They're scared they're going to get blamed for "not supporting the troops" when Bush sends them anyway and then there's not enough money to support them.
It's like Clinton vs. the Republican government shutdown in the 90s, only with lives at stake. Clinton had balls.
