Feingold-Reid-Democrats Playing Politics with Our Troops
Not only couldn't Democrats muster even a slim majority (which would then have allowed them to call Republican senators obstructionists who stand in the way of the "will of the people"), they couldn't even muster 1/3 of the Democrats to vote for defunding the war through Feingold-Reid.
Heh. The Vote was 67-29 with John Warner and Jim Webb voting with the majority. McQ has issued the challenge to refute his thoughts that the anti war democrat/iks lack the balls to support what they campaigned on and promised. They had the chance to lead and fell flat. They are always saying America voted for a change....leave Iraq...blah blah. Then why did they not pass the bill? McQ writes:
"They can no longer claim they haven't had a chance to end the war and, they can no longer claim their future opposition isn't rooted in plain old politics."Indeed
