To hell with anything having to do with a free Iraq

The idiocy and Bush hatred of the Democratic Party know no bounds.

Today in the United States House of Representatives, Oregon Representatives Earl Blumenauer, Peter DeFazio, Darlene Hooley and David Wu -- along with 145 of their closest party friends -- voted against the following:
  • Honoring all Americans who have taken an active part in the Global War on Terror
  • Honoring the sacrifices of the U.S., coalition, Iraqi and Afghani soldiers who have fought those battles, "especially those who have fallen or been wounded in the struggle, and . . . their families";
  • Declaring that the United States is committed to the completion of the mission to create a sovereign, free, secure, and united Iraq;
  • Congratulating the Iraqi prime minister and the Iraqi people on the courage they have shown in the elections
  • Calling upon the nations of the world to support the efforts of the Iraqi and Afghan people to live in freedom; and
  • Declaring that the United States will prevail in the Global War on Terror.
Why? Because they don't like that it includes a declaration "that it is not in the national security interest of the United States to set an arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment of United States Armed Forces from Iraq."

So in short, to hell with the military, their families, the Iraqi & Afghani people, the Iraqi and Afghani governments, and -- quite frankly -- the American people by virtue of opposing our ultimate success in this war.

Why? Because the Democratic Party wants to cut and run. With three quarters of the party voting the way it did, that conclusion is unavoidable and undeniable.

    Sure. Load "Mom and Apple Pie" on top of every stinker bill, and you can make all the lefties out as demons if they vote against them. That's Bushworld -- George Orwell is smiling.

    Use your brain.
