The Democrat Proposal to turn their backs on the people of Iraq and our valiant military failed to achieve cloture 52 to 47 after a two day marathon of political theater that amounted to little more than the pantering to the anti-war left cowards of Move-On and the rest of the cheerleaders who did not care about the ramifications of a time-line for withdrawel from the field of battle. The Levin/Reid amendment would have sent a crucial signal to al Queda and the enemies against us that we were ready to give in and surrender in the face of victory.
Reid of Nevada voted no? Did I hear this right?
Casa Blanca was just mentioned by the minority leader in refering to tactics employed by the democrats.
Mr. Reid and indeed all of the Democrats should now heed the will of the senate that this nation will not cut and run from our enemies. And this should also send the message to General David Petraeus and our troops that we intend to defeat al queda in Iraq and where ever they may hide in the world. Take that caliphate and shove it where the sun don't shine.
Hopefully this will be the last we hear of defeatism while our military runs al queda out of Iraq during this surge. And then our brave soldiers can return home with honor.
Reid did vote no on cloture------it's called procedural.
