Shame on Congress, especially shame on Democrats.......You sound like a bunch of Republican chicken hawks!
Republican Chicken hawk: "I support the war, I support the war....but I’m not going to fight on the frontlines, my contribution to Victory (or defeat) will be an occasional vote and lip service"
Democratic Chicken hawk: I am against war funding without a timetable for withdrawal, I am against retroactive immunity for telecoms......but I am not going to fight on the front lines, with every legislative tools I have to stop them.......I am just going to keep saying I am against it, vote against it when I am sure my vote is in vain, and do nothing more to Stop what I profess to be so completely against having happen.
Democratic Congress just SHUT UP already...you are embarrassing and disgraceful...you do not have the guts to put your money where your mouth is......I am tired of your lip service....Our soldiers are tired of your lip service...Our constitution is tired of your lip service....
If you are not sure if your Representative deserves these harsh words, I ask you to call their office with the following questions about War funding and Retroactive immunity:
YOU: "Hello Representative, I am glad to hear you voted against war funding and against retroactive immunity....now what else are you going to do to stop it?
Will you use every legislative power you have to stop this from becoming law?????
Or will you just give it lip service?"
Dems split 80 for, 151 against war funding. Funding passes.
