    Why are you attacking Democrats? Why don't you go to the local offices of Congressional Republicans who hold marginal districts in Southern California? Wouldn't your enegies be more effective there? They are the ones who pushed for war with Iraq.

      We want Democrats to STOP funding the WAR.

      congress has the power of the purse.

      Did you read the diary?

      If you reread it, I think you'll find the answer to your question.

        Your energies would be better spent protesting Republicans in other southern California districts, instead of attacking Democrats. But no, instead of focusing on the opposition, you focus on Democrats.

        Funding for the war isn't going to be cut. I hope that the Democratic leadership doesn't cave into the anti-military segments of the radical left. Doing so would be politically disastrous and put the troops at risk.

          Five references to "far left" was one too many.

          You're falling into the Rethug trap.  There is no reason why the Congress couldn't "earmark" the funds to both protect the troops and bring them home.  Yes, some Dems are acting as if their vote against funding would be misinterpreted as denying the troops armor, support logistics, etc., but that's only if they simply fall asleep at the wheel, and don't get their message out properly.  

          This needs to be put squarely in Bush's lap: we can fund protection and all the wherewithal needed to withdraw, not "surge", and let him continue to defy the peoples' will.

          Your argument leads only to a continued spineless Congressional immobility as our errant (at best) Commander in Chief continues down the bellicose path to destruction.  

          Should we just wait two more years, jiacinto, before we lift a finger to end this unjust useless war?

          to get out of Iraq.  And if they run out of gas on the way out I'll bet the Iraqis will fetch more for them in Jerry cans or in milk cartons if that's what it takes.

          They don't need a dollar more if what they are going to use it for is to stay there for another minute.

    •  Why is she fighting Democrats? (0+ / 0-)

      You have got to be kidding asking that question - or you don't live in California.  She is trying to get herself elected in a safe blue district.  She moved to run against Harman - she could have moved to Simi Valley to run against a "Bush rubber stamp"  Republican - but she and her friend Mary Pillant didn't have the stomach for the fight.
