Carol Platt Liebau: A Grave and Self-Inflicted Wound

A Grave and Self-Inflicted Wound

All the Republicans in the Senate who caved to the Democrats and called for alleged "accountability" today in the war on terror have inflicted a grave wound upon themselves -- and everyone else in their party.

As this piece indicates, the vote will be spun as a defeat for everything that Republicans do (or should) care about. Minority Leader Harry Reid interpreted the vote for a compliant MSM:

"Today you saw a vote of no confidence in the Bush administration's policy on Iraq. Democrats and Republicans acknowledged that staying the course is not the way to go."

Nice going, guys. You've made Zarqawi's day.

And all for the sake of political grandstanding. Exactly what information do you need that you don't have (or can't get)? And what makes any of you think that you can run the war better than the President?

What a bunch of gutless, weak-kneed (and politically tone-deaf) cowards. In my view, Republicans should decline to support any senator for President who voted for this disgraceful legislation. That means you, George Allen -- and Bill Frist, too. Worthless and weak. Shame on all of them.

The only viable weapon the enemy has is propoganda. The Republicans in the U.S. Senate just shipped the enemy a boatload of ammunition.

If this were only about politics, I'd simply sit and brood over this stupid move. But this is about much more. This is about whether or not we are going to win a war against an enemy that WANTS US DEAD!

What do you mean refuse to support Allen? If it comes down to him vs Hillary, what choice do I have?
