Trackback Friday Featuring the Surrender Monkey: SM’s Can’t Surrender

Happy Friday to all! It's that time of the week again! Do you have an interesting post you want to share with everyone? The official Surrender Monkey of the Democratic Party says to do what the Lefties don’t, since they all have the same talking points: link it!

Funny stuff from Thursday

democrats surrender monkey(CNSNews.com) – Senate Democrats finally got the vote they wanted on whether to change the course of the war in Iraq, and their views did not prevail.

The Senate voted on three resolutions Thursday, but the first one was the most critical.

A Democratic proposal (the Reid resolution) to begin pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq within 120 days — with the goal of redeploying all but a few combat forces by March 31, 2008 – was defeated 50-48. That was 12 votes short of the 60 needed for passage.

A second resolution, introduced by Republican Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, said "no funds should be cut off or reduced for American troops in the field." Most Democrats decided they couldn't vote against it, and it passed 82-16.

A third resolution expressed the sense of the Senate that Congress must provide "necessary funds for training, equipment and other support for troops in the field."

This was a no-brainer. Even Sen. Reid said a vote against this amendment would be a vote against the troops. It passed 96-2.

Interesting. The majority of Democrats voted for cut and run in 120 days, but then refused to for cutting off funds, and voted to make sure that the troops are funded. That must have really hurt.

So what did SM leader Dingy Harry have to say? As to the first vote

"Democrats believe that our troops should not be policing a civil war, that Iraq must take responsibility for its own future, and that our troops should begin to come home. Senate Republicans support President Bush's plan to commit more men and women to policing an open-ended civil war," Reid said.

Is there any doubt that Reid is politisizing the war, considering that the Surge is currently working? And since when have the Democrats really cared about the troops? That mostly ended in late 1967.

As to the second vote

Sen. Reid said the Gregg resolution "ignores Congress and its joint responsibility to wage war." He called it a "feel-good amendment" that "doesn't do anything."

While he is Constitutionally correct about said "joint responsibility (article 1,  section 8, near the end)", I wonder what Reid thinks about his own resolution? Is that a feel good amendment for the Defeatocrats?

Reid said Thursday's vote is only one step: "We will not stop until President Bush and Senate Republicans listen to the American people and change course in Iraq," he said.

Reid, like so many other SMs, just cannot bring himself to say that they want to cut and run. What else is "change course in Iraq?" They have not offered anything else.
