CTCentral - News from the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House on Friday handily rejected a timetable for pulling U.S. forces out of Iraq, culminating a fiercely partisan debate between Republicans and Democrats feeling the public's apprehension about war and the onrushing midterm campaign season.

In a 256-153 vote that mirrored the position taken by the Senate earlier, the GOP-led House approved a nonbinding resolution that praises U.S. troops, labels the Iraq war part of the larger global fight against terrorism and says an "arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment" of troops is not in the national interest.
[...]

The House vote comes one day after the Senate soundly rejected a call to withdraw combat troops by year's end by shelving a proposal that would allow 'only forces that are critical to completing the mission of standing up Iraqi security forces' to remain in Iraq in 2007.

That vote was 93-6, but Democrats assailed the GOP maneuver that led to the vote as political gamesmanship and promised further debate next week on a proposal to start redeploying troops this year.
[...]
Get that? 60% of the house, and 94% of the senate believe we need to finish the job we started.
Evidently, our elected officials believe more in sticking around and getting the job done more than the noisemakers on the left would lead you to believe.
"Six Democrats, including Kerry, were in the minority."
Go figger.

A man with a plan. Withdrawl IMMEDIATELY. Wait, no, withdrawl in DECEMBER, no wait, maybe, next JULY.

What a friggin duchebag. (No offense to our liveral friends, but I've yet to see any real defense of this blue-blood bafoon.

He's sure got OUR interests at heart - nothing to do with HIS political ambitions.

*Spit*

Kerry and Murtha-fucker (funny how it's two vietnam vets, although I refuse to give them that honor) have really made it their agenda to keep pushing for a pullout. Attention whores. They just can't think of any better issue to squawk about right now.
