According to the ‘democrat clock’, the ‘first 100 hours’ is not over yet. Here’s the addendum to the 100 hour blitz of democrat legislation. In the first 100 hours, Democrats rebuke the military.
Lt. Gen. David H. Petraeus, the President’s pick to implement the new Iraq strategy, was lauded by all the democrat leaders in the house and senate. Within a day or two of the big welcome and confidence expressed for Gen. Petraeus’ record and judgement, democrats in the house ignore his advice and have their Iraq plan ‘no confidence’ resolution anyway.
Asked by Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) whether those resolutions would give encouragement to the enemy by exposing divisions among the American people, he replied: “That’s correct.”
So when people like Hillary Clinton chastise Bush for not listening to his generals (their spin), Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Murtha, Kucinich and the like are doing the same, to the real general, the one charged with the responsibility of prosecuting it, despite the fact that they know full well that the ‘unintended’ consequence of such a rebuff would give hope to the enemy. Giving hope to your enemy is not a way to win the war.
