Politicians Actually Responding?

I don’t know about you, but I was pretty pissed when the Democrats rolled over and stuck their asses in the air for He Who Would Be Caesar on the timetable/funding bill a few weeks ago.

The Democrats were elected on a mandate to get us out of Iraq.  We don’t belong there, we’re only making things worse there, we never belonged there in the first place, and we were lied to to get us there.  At this point, anyone with even a tenuous grasp on reality should be calling for criminal charges to be filed against the war criminal who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Somehow however,  the party that promised to give our country back to us forgot about that promise.  While that itself is unsurprising, the speed at which they forgot certainly was.

Apparently, they have been reminded by the loud public outcry over the last month or so.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Senate Democrats will once again try to impose timetables for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, Majority Leader Harry Reid announced Tuesday.

Reid said Democrats will use a defense authorization bill for fiscal year 2008 as a vehicle to revive two Iraq timetable amendments that they pushed unsuccessfully during a fight over Iraq funding in May.

The first, sponsored by Reid and Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, would set a goal of beginning the withdrawal of U.S. troops by April 2008, unless the Iraqi government demonstrated political and security progress. However, President Bush would have the power to waive that requirement.

The second, sponsored by Reid and Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, would go further and cut off funding for the Iraq war by next April, without giving the president any flexibility to extend the mission.

“On Iraq, we’re going to hold the president’s feet to the fire,” Reid said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

While I’m sure it’s too much to ask to hope for impeachment hearings and really hold his feet to the fire, it’s at least a start in the right direction.
