Fighting an Enemy Abroad and at Home

Posted by Bobby on April 26, 2007

In the wake of the 9/11, everyone knew that things were going to change. We had been attacked on our own soil, thousands of our citizens had died, and we were determined to take the fight to enemy. Thank God we had a commander-in-chief that was willing to do so. Little did we know that 6 years later, we would be fighting our enemies allies in our own legislative branch of government.

Today, they (Democrats) did it again. Source. Also on CNN.com

Defying a fresh presidential veto threat, the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass legislation within days that requires the beginning of a U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq by Oct. 1 and sets a goal of a complete pullout by April 1, 2008, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday.

Amazing isn’t it? Our Democratic Congress (I say ‘our’ because they do represent me as much as I hate to say it), despite the threat that Bush WILL veto this bill, went ahead and did it anyway. Either they are just completely stupid or they are intentionally trying to delay funding to the troops. If they are stupid, they shouldn’t hold office; if they are delaying funds, they are–say it with me–traitors.

Now, I know what you Libs are thinking, “Bush doesn’t have to veto. If he signs off on it, the troops get their money. It’s Bush’s fault.”

Let me explain something to you. The Democrats are calling shots that are not theirs to call. You say they are putting in a pull out date because they care about the troops. Who cares. It’s not their job to command this war. Its the job of the commander-in-chief or his generals. If they want to end the war, defund it! They can do that, but they won’t. If this doesn’t convince you that the Democrats are power hungry, you are just plain blind.
