Carol Platt Liebau: A Disgraceful Decision

A Disgraceful Decision

The Democratic House of Representatives has persisted in its disgraceful course of trying to secure defeat without openly defunding the war, by passing a bill that would fund the war for only three months at a time.

Powerline has the text of the letter that the Secretary of Defense has written to explain to the Democrats why their proposal is deeply pernicious:

[T]he prospect of segmenting and further delaying funding that is urgently needed can only result in additional disruption and uncertainty in Department operations. An organization the size and complexity of the Department of Defense needs a certain measure of funding stability and predictability. Without it, compensatory measures are required that cause, at best inefficiency and at worst a reduction in the Department's ability to carry out its national security mission.

The problem, however, is that the Democrats either don't know these basic administrative and legislative facts -- or, more likely, just don't care. After all, of one talks with a Democrat about the war long enough, the real motive behind most of their posturing becomes clear. It has nothing to do with the war itself or even America's national security -- in fact, they can't explain how following their plan wouldn't signal to Al Qaeda that America is in retreat. Rather, what lies behind all the white-flag-waving is Bush-hatred, and above all, the prospect of political gain next year.

They say that every man has his price. Well, so does every party. The Democrats are willing to sell America's national security down the river in order to secure a political victory.

Dems are drips that is a "socially inept persons a somebody regarded by others as socially inept, inadequate, or uninteresting." These drips use drip feed funding. Only a drip would think of such an action.

I have never in all my life witnessed such a gaggle of gutless wonders as exists in the Democratic controlled congress. These disgusting dolts are more than willing to sacrifice the lives of our soldiers in order to protect their backsides, pander to the radical left, and ensure their tenure at the public feeding trough. Their behavior is truly sickening.
