In a marvelous spin article, the AP reveals our beloved legislative leaders presenting a strong, united front against Bush and "his" war.
"This debate will go on," vowed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.Indeed it will. Because, apparently, thats all the Democrats can do. Debate, but no action. They plan to "vote repeatedly on whether U.S. troops should stay and whether Bush has the authority to continue the war". These are threats? This battle is over and done for Democrats. That much was evident in the 80-14 senate vote.
Oh, but it gets better.
"Senate Democrats will not stop our efforts to change the course of this war until either enough Republicans join with us to reject President Bush's failed policy or we get a new president," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said.Thats similar to saying "we're going to keep walking Barry Bonds until he retires or until we get a pitcher who can strike him out!" Hah. Take that Bush! You win -- but we're going to make a lot of noise!
