House condemns's NYT "General Petraeus" ad....

Last week the U.S. Senate voted 72-25 to condemn's full-page New York Times ad calling Gen. David Petraeus a traitor (click here to see who voted for and against). Today the House of Representatives also voted to condemn the ad. In a stunning 341-79 vote, the House passed a Resolution that praised Gen. Petraeus' patriotism.'s response?
"With every passing day, more American soldiers and Iraqi civilians lose their lives in this unwinnable civil war," said Eli Pariser, executive director of Political Action. "It is unconscionable and outrageous that instead of doing the people's work and ending this war, Congress chooses meaningless and distracting gestures."
Does he consider it "outrageous" that Hillary is wasting time trying to obtain $1 million for a meaningless hippie "Woodstock" museum? Just asking....

Hippie Woodstock museum?
And that has what to do with the MoveOn ad?
About 3.2 million Americans, including this one, belong to MoveOn.
And so that amendment, attached to a bill that would extend spending at 2007 levels seven weeks into 2008 due to Republican obstructionism preventing a budget being passed, is how the Republicans show that they "support the troops"?
Never mind the Webb dwell-time amendment being shot down, again by Senate Republicans, a week before the army comes out and says the current 15 on/12 off isn't sustainable?
The army says current rotations are not sustainable.
Yet you natter on about newspaper ads and hippie museums, after calling on your President to veto a bill that would have corrected a problem identified by the Army.
There are no words.
