  •  Reid's Speech Costs 175 More Lives (1+ / 0-)

    "While our brave men and women continue to fight Iraq's civil war, Iraqis remain far from a political solution and have not demonstrated any readiness to stand up and take responsibility for their own country.  And as President Bush continues to cling stubbornly to his flawed strategy, Al Qaeda only grows stronger....  Over the past six months, despite President Bush's unfounded claims of success, 565 Americans have been killed in Iraq while taxpayers have spent $60 billion.  After the Administration's September 15 report, we hope the President and Congressional Republicans will finally work with us to provide a real, overdue change of course in Iraq.

    That's a nice campaign speech. Too bad Reid isn't introducing legislation that ends the war or acts on Bush's impeachment. Too bad Reid isn't holding all the Republicans' pork hostage until they help end the war.

    But clearly Reid prefers the campaign speeches to justice or human lives.
