I've got C-SPAN on in the background as I work at the computer ... and the debate continues between those who support the President's request for additional troops to Iraq, and those who don't get it.
I'd like to be able to say it's the Republicans vs the Democrats but, unfortunately, that is no longer true.
With turncoats like Republicans John Warner and Tom Davis coming out on the side of the Demcorats -- against our Republican President -- this debate has taken a sad, even more political turn.
Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ilinois) read a long list of requests for support from real communications from real soldiers and veterans who say there is no substitute for victory ... we HAVE to win this war.
MY Congressman, Bob Goodlatte, will speak shortly so I am hoping to see his speech.
The only political spin and posturing in this entire debate is on the side of the Democrats.
We were attacked on 9/11. We ALL agreed to go to war. Now some want to use their 20/20 hindsight to pull out, give up, and thumb their noses at the troops who have died to protect our safety and freedom.
WIN THE WAR! Victory in Iraq!
