In part, Senator Lieberman said,
"There is something profoundly wrong when there is so much distrust of our intelligence community that some Americans doubt the plain and ominous facts about the threat to us posed by Iran.
And there is something profoundly wrong when, in the face of attacks by radical Islam, we think we can find safety and stability by pulling back, by talking to and accommodating our enemies, and abandoning our friends and allies.
Some of this wrong-headed thinking about the world is happening because we're in a political climate where, for many people, when George Bush says "yes," their reflex reaction is to say "no."
That is unacceptable."
Pelosi said the U.S. military campaign in Iraq had to be judged on three accounts: whether it makes the U.S. safer, the U.S. military stronger and the region more stable.
“The war in Iraq fails on all three counts”.Some of the crowd applauded before catcalls and boos could be heard. A spokesman for AIPAC argued the boos were in response to those clapping for Pelosi.
The boos, mixed with some polite applause, stood in stark contrast to the reception House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) received minutes earlier when he said the U.S. had no choice but to win in Iraq and to the applause which greeted Senator Liberman's speech.
The Democrats are finding it much harder to govern than the cake walk they imagined. Signs of stress are starting to show and for all the talk of Pelosi's "first hundred hours", no meaningful legislation has been enacted nor is it likely to be.
The Liberals/Progressives, (whatever they are calling their selves this week), are starting to melt down and resort to eating their own.
How long until everyone gets tired of Chuckie Shumer and his investigation du Jour.
I mean, this is exactly what he promised while his head was still swelled from the big Democrat win and his tongue was wagging loose from the drunkenness of victory and his dreams of power.
Chuckie wants to hear what Karl Rove has to say about 8 Federal Prosecutors that were given the axe and thinks that Attorney General, Alberto Gonzalez should resign! (but of course, Chuckie thinks that all Republican office holders should resign). Federal Prosecutors are hired by the President and serve at his pleasure. They may be fired at any time for any reason. Bill Clinton had Janet Reno fire "ALL" the federal prosecutors when he took office. I don't remember so much as an eyebrow being raised.
I wish this administration would grow a set and tell these panty waisted bunch to F*^% off!
