But here is the part that pissed me off even more:WASHINGTON — The US Senate on Tuesday easily defeated a symbolic measure formally declaring an end to the war in Iraq, roughly one month before US forces are due to leave the strife-torn country.
Republican Senator Rand Paul’s proposal, an amendment to a $662 billion annual military spending bill, failed in a 30-67 vote.
This is the same Democrat who went after Bush for going to war in Iraq in the first place without Congressional approval. Yes, the Democrats bashed their opponents for concentrating more power in the presidency, but when one of their own is in office, they have no problem with it.But Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, a Democrat who voted against authorizing the use of military force against Iraq in 2002, warned that Paul’s resolution could tie US commanders’ hands.
“I just am unwilling to take this risk during the critical transition period,” said Levin. “There are just too many unknown, uncertain consequences.”
I have a word for this.... Friggen hypocrites.... OK, make that two words.
