Carol Platt Liebau: Senate Waves the White Flag

Senate Waves the White Flag

To its eternal shame, the Senate in a 50-48 vote has refused to strip the House's irresponsible call for a deadline for defeat in Iraq from its version of the bill.

Apparently, the 2-vote margin was obtained because the unspeakable Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) voted with the Democrats, and because Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) allowed himself to be won over by advocates of defeat 'n retreat. Joe Lieberman joined the Republicans.

Hagel is despicable . . . the incompetent dolt makes me physcally nauseous.

With every hard earned step toward victory the Democrats rachet up their demands for defeat.

How pathetic!

Still, I'm an optomist. I believe the United States of America will prevail in this long, hard struggle. And the entire world will be better for it.

History will mark this episode with emphasis in the epitaph to the decline and fall of the Democratic Party.
