Surrendercrats Surrender After Damage Done

Published by at 8:03 am under All General Discussions,Iraq

The Democrats achieved nothing but exciting their more rabid base and putting smiles on al Qaeda’s faces. Oh, and I am sure Iran is happy too. So what was all their grandstanding for? Absolutely nothing:

Democratic leaders in Congress are slowly backing down from a standoff with the White House over tying war funding to a troop-withdrawal timetable, saying they can use other bills to confront President Bush on Iraq.

Too late, they should have thought of that before they got al Qaeda all excited and out on a bloody rampage. They fact is, if surrender was so damn popular they could pass a veto-proof Bill all on its own. So what did they get out of this? TV time. We all knew they did not support the war or the troops. It was all for their own political benefit and they could care less how many people got hurt or killed in Iraq due to their bumbling.

    This just in… In a new stunning political tactic the Democrats have developed a strategy that would allow them to distance themselves from any bill being passed. The new tactic…..
    “I signed it before I read it.”
    Brilliant strategy, this now gives them a brief window to clean the blood from their hands before any one in the news media is forced to question why they are signing anything before reading.

    All college graduates have started to use the new Democratic tactic, and it is now spreading like wildfire to the housing sector, marriages, and in one young boys case his parents signature on his report card…

    Yeah um, sarcasm…

    Is it normal that ALL Senators sign the bill or just vote on it before sending it to a US president?

  3. lurker9876 says:

    Pelosi finally signed the bill and Bush is going to veto it on the air shortly. When Pelosi signed the bill, she did not smile at all.

    Amazing that Reid is ignoring the “silent majority”.

    Anyway…it’s about time.

    George is on now. Those who cannot respect and admire this man have their demons in charge of their lives.

    Go George! We love you! Thank you for standing firm for our troops and for our country. G_d bless America! Land of the FREE and home of the BRAVE.

    Brave like my President.

    I some times worry about what this President will do. But now I know that on the war, taxes, and children he can always be counted on.

    I hope those morons on the weak-willed right will now stand up and voice their support for the President, after saying “he STILL hasn’t vetoed the bill!”, with as much faux indignation as they can muster, not even acknowledging the fact the the Democrats had not sent him the bill. Really, people who doubt this man, especially on our side, just show how small, petty, and vindictive they really are. It’s time to support him, whole-heartedly support him, just like we all did in 2004.

    Bush Vetoes Funds for Troops in the Field.

    Were you listening to the Who’s Baba O’Riley as you typed that?

    Man, the sorosites are trying sooooo hard, but they just can’t overcome the genuineness, sincerity and goodness of George W. Bush. Let the BDS be an indictment on them.

    Cracks me up.

    And I’m so with you Colin and Kathie.

  10. lurker9876 says:

    Bush was smart to note that it took the Democrats 12 WEEKS to get the bill to Bush; yet, he immediately vetoed the bill within an hour of Pelosi’s signature. Tomorrow they meet. Wonder what will happen tomorrow…

    God bless America. God bless Bush. God bless the US troops.

    GOP’s Base Helps Keep Unity on Iraq
    Lawmakers Not Backing War Pay Price

    By Jonathan Weisman
    Monday, April 30, 2007; A01

    snip/”The experiences of the few Republicans to vote against the war help explain the remarkable unity that the party has maintained in Washington behind an unpopular president. Just four Republicans — two in the House, two in the Senate — voted last week for a $124 billion war funding bill that would require troop withdrawals to begin by Oct. 1, legislation that Bush has vowed to veto.

    That cohesion reflects the views of the GOP’s core voters, who see the war in Iraq in fundamentally different terms than Democrats and political independents do, said Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. Voters from those groups tend to see unremitting gloom, but Republican base voters continue to see a conflict that is going reasonably well, with a decent chance of military success…”

    “unremitting gloom”…the daily lives of liberals with their internal demons and neuroses that they act out on the rest of us.

    This from National Review (

    “Our troops and their families deserve better, and their elected leaders can do better,” Bush said.

    “Whatever our differences, surely we can agree that our troops are worthy of this funding and that we have a responsibility to get it to them without further delay,” the president said.

    Bush signed the veto with a pen given to him by Robert Derga, the father of Marine Corps Reserve Cpl. Dustin Derga, who was killed in Iraq on May 8, 2005. The elder Derga spoke with Bush two weeks ago at a meeting the president had with military families at the White House.

    Derga asked Bush to promise to use the pen in his veto. On Tuesday, Derga contacted the White House to remind Bush to use the pen, and so he did. The 24-year-old Dustin Derga served with Lima Company, 3rd Battalion 25th Marines from Columbus, Ohio. The five-year Marine reservist and fire team leader was killed by an armor-piercing round in Anbar Province.

    Funding — with the condition that the troops retreat? Might as well not fund the troops at all. Only Soothsayer and his ilk don’t seem to realize this.

    I’m glad President Bush vetoed this bill. If the Dems are serious about funding the troops, they’ll come up with a bill they know Bush will sign. The President hasn’t exactly been heavyhanded with the veto pen for the past six years, and this is supposedly “his” war, so coming up with such a bill should be a no-brainer.
