...and I thought the Democrats in Congress were [against] the Iraq War...

The Senate, by a 70-25 vote, approved $70 billion for use in Iraq and Afghanistan, "without restrictions that Democrats had insisted on for weeks."
Twenty-one Democrats and Connecticut independent Joe Lieberman — who stood with Republicans at a post-vote news conference — voted with every Republican but Gordon Smith of Oregon to approve the Iraq funding.

Democrats again failed to win votes to force removal of U.S. troops or set a nonbinding target to remove most troops by the end of next year.


  1. Congressional Democrats are spineless. Go figure.

  2. Yeah. They know how to talk, but when it comes to getting things down, they are the same as the Republicans.
