To the far left, the ones apparently calling the shots in the Democrat(ic) party today, the troops are the political football and their game-plan it to play a game. That’s why they have apparently put Barack Obama on their s***list, for really trying to support the troops.
In a post titled ‘Obama caves to Bush,’ the shadow party chairman (kos) says
“Instead of threatening Bush with even more restrictions and daring him to veto funding for the troops out of pique, Barack just surrendered to him.”
It is obvious that the far left is fighting the wrong war. This is what Obama said that kos characterizes as surrendering to Bush.
If President Bush vetoes an Iraq war spending bill as promised, Congress quickly will provide the money without the withdrawal timeline the White House objects to because no lawmaker “wants to play chicken with our troops.”
