The Democrats Show Their True Colors

They talk a good game, but when it came time to put their money where their mouth is, the Democrats in Congress folded like poker player with a pair of twos. Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted on the resolution submitted by Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), that proposed a U.S. withdrawl from Iraq. The resolution went down to defeat 403-3. Now, I know there are a lot more than 3 Democrats in the House, so that means that the vast, vast majority of Democrats voted against the resolution. Not surprisingly, the three (all Democrats) who voted in favor of the resolution - Jose Serrano (NY), Bob Wexler (FL), and Cynthia McKinney (GA) - are leftists of the looniest of looney variety. Some other reps only voted "present" rather than "yay" or "nay". Almost all of these "yay" and "present" reps are members of the radical left House Progressive Caucus, which is linked to the group, Democratic Socialists of America.

In the wake of the vote, the Democrats have tried to weasel their way out of their "nay" votes with a number of amusing ways, but it is now on the record, all but three of these weasels did not have the guts to vote their alleged conscience regarding the War in Iraq. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the bunch just kicked their practically non-existent credibility just one more notch downward.

Good Day to You, Sir
