Losing in Congress, not in Iraq

The Democrats were convinced that the election in 2006 was about Iraq. Unfortunately they came to the conclusion it was about losing in Iraq. It turns out it is about losing in Congress. With the vote today, their record is 1 and 40 in getting withdrawal legislation passed. That “1” is only a partial win too. Bush vetoed it.

WASHINGTON β€” Democrats failed to bring combat troops home from Iraq by December 2008 and place more restrictions on the administration’s interrogation program through a $50 billion war-funding measure.

The Senate also blocked a Republican countermeasure, but FOX News has learned that Democratic leaders in the Senate have left the door open to reconsidering the measures before the year is out as military leaders are warning of dire budgetary consequences

    I’m going to make a bold prediction. I will bet you anything, that Darrell Castle becomes President elect in 2016. That’s all.

    Hey nice website! It would be cool if all of us could meet in Memphis someday to get to know one another. Also, it would be cool if you had an “off-topic” section on here.

    Bman, those are great ideas! I will implement them and pretend they are mine.

    Nice comment, Bman! I had no idea you were responsible for Fiesta #1 or “Off Topic”. Looks like RD successfully pretended they were his! πŸ™‚

    is this cheating to get a comment on the coveted “first post”, 9 years later?

    This first publication right here is going to remain my nice little quiet spot on the Internet. When I come here I am going to visualize myself sitting on a stone bench in a garden that is adorned with heavy cannons on the side of a mountain, overlooking a valley that a river winds its way through. From here I see people and things coming and going but’s it’s all quiet up here. Here I will just sit from time to time and think about what all followed this publication and how it affected my life, helped change me There were times when it helped to change me for the worse but in the end I am able to say that this Blog bears the evidence of what the Holy Spirit has done in my life since this first publication was introduced to the worldwide web.

    So from time to time I’m just going to come here and sit for a while.
