The Nation et al holding the DEMS Accountable
The Nation reports that the Democrats have put into motion a bill that will give Bush a blank check for the remainder of his term. It is NOT a compromise it is a blank check.
Hopefully, Democrats, Independents, and moderate Republicans will contact their Senators before the final bill is approved.
ANY war funding giving Bush a blank check and not insisting on accountability is a sell out of the majority of Americans. Heck even the majority of Iraqi's AND the Iraqi parliament want the United States to leave Iraq asap.
Straight talking Keith Olberman has also called the Democratic party leaders out for their "shameful betrayal."
David Sirota over at the Huffington Post has written an interesting piece comparing the current Democratic leadership tactics to Dick Cheney's methodology.
I find it interesting that Democrats in Virginia often criticize Virginian Republicans for "blindly" following the Republican leadership....I'm finding hard to see any difference between either party in Virginia today.
Hopefully, the democratic grassroots in other states will shake their representatives out of this shameful "betrayal" and get things back on course before it is too late....and maybe impeachment will go back on the table??
Community and Country first I say....
