I am now convinced that the House Dem Leadership has no clue how to end the Iraq Debacle. What convinced me is this:
[In] [a] meeting in Pelosi's office Thursday . . . Pelosi's political consigliere, Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.). . . 's pitch was blunt: If the liberals team up with Republicans to bring down the Iraq bill, Democratic leaders would have no choice but to come back with a spending bill that simply funds the war, without any policy restrictions. It would pass easily, with Republican votes and the support of many Democrats.
Now why in the hell is that true? Why must the Dem leadership introduce such a no restrictions bill? Why would they "have no choice?" Sez who?
Oh BTW, what happens NOW that the Republicans KNOW they can stop this bill and get the no restrictions bill? Did George Miller just show ALL his cards to the GOP leadership?
Just how stupid is the Dem leadership in the House? Does George Miller ALWAYS show his hands to the Republicans? This is an act of incompetence that seems unprecedented to me.
I've never seen anything like it. At least since last week when Steny Hoyer announced Dems would never defund the war. Ever. Blithering idiots.
