Senate GOP Blocks Democrats’ Troop Withdrawal Scheme

Senate Republicans on Friday filibustered the media/Democrats’ latest attempt to condition funding for our troops in the field on a deadline by which they would have to be withdrawn.

43 / 47 – 91% – Republicans against a withdrawal deadline.
1 / 49 – 1% – Democrats against a withdrawal deadline.

48 / 49 – 99% – Democrats in favor of withdrawal deadline.
4 / 47 – 9% – Republicans in favor of withdrawal deadline.

Plus Lieberman against and the socialist in favor =

53-45 in favor; thereby falling well short of the 60 votes needed to proceed.

For those who missed it — or who’ve already blocked it out — this is the third time this calendar year the “Party of the People” has attempted to sell out the Iraqi government, the Iraqi people and our troops in the field.

Supporting the troops is too "pro-war"
