    That's what it's come down to.  You're only moderate if you want the war to continue but want to start seeing positive RESULTS.  As if the Bush Admin were somehow capible of providing results.  If they havne't yet they're not going to suddenly START just 'cause some pencilnecks in congress ask NICELY.

    What tools!

    •  Who said they were moderates? (0+ / 0-)

      They have been down with this war since day one.  They are not giving up hope anymore then Bush is.  I think we were all being a bit naive if we thought Salazar, Nelson and Casey were going to help end the war.  They never even hinted they wanted to withdraw troops.

      They don't expect anything to change.  They just need to figure out a way to appease a portion of the people who oppose the war now who didn't oppose it when it started.  They will try anything.  All they want is the public to think they care so the occupation can continue.  Things are going just fine in their world thank you very much.

        THey consider themselves "moderates".

        Doesn't mean they are.

        •  I dont think they do consider themselves moderate (0+ / 0-)

          The press labels them moderates and we let them get away with it.  Casey never said he was a moderate anything and neither did Salazar.  Casey is pro-life, pro-business and pro this fucking war.  That is hardly moderate.  All Casey said was that he was a Democrat and better then Santorum.  Both of those things are true.  Apparently, just being a Dem makes him moderate because nothing else does.
