Even Al-Zawahri Knows The Dems Aren't Accomplishing Anything

2 comments
AQ's number two guy is smarter than we give him credit for. He basically said that the Dems won't change anything in Iraq, and he's right. At least as long as they keep debating non-binding resolutions on our dime.

"The people chose you due to your opposition to Bush's policy in Iraq, but it appears that you are marching with him to the same abyss," al-Zawahri told the Democrats according to the transcript.

Perhaps he is pushing the Dems into more action to get us out of Iraq. Now why would he want to do that? Hmmm ... I wonder.

Meanwhile the debate in the House on the non-binding resolution opposing the troop surge got underway today.

Each of the House's 435 members and five delegates were being allotted five minutes to speak on the issue.

5 x 440 = 36.66 hours of potential debate that you and I are paying for. And for what? Nothing ... literally. This is equivalent to over 4 1/2 8 hour days that they are wasting to prove a point.

Based on the average salary of $165,200 per representative (high ranking officials get more) we will have literally thrown more than $2,661,555 down the toilet because the Dems want to prove a point. This whole "debate" amounts to little more than a campaign commercial. To top it off ... the Dems aren't allowing amendments, or a GOP alternative. So it really isn't a debate after all.

The funny thing is that there doesn't seem to be an outcry against this non-action action. Remember when Republicans were debating the flag burning amendment, and the public heat they got for not dealing with "more important" issues? Hell, at least that would have been a law. This is nothing at all!

Pelosi and her colleagues are fumbling all over themselves to get some coherent statement together, but all they do is contradict themselves.

"No more blank checks for President Bush on Iraq," Pelosi declared.

Meanwhile ... she continues to give Bush blank checks for funding every time he asks.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md, insisted:

"There will be no defunding of troops in the field. There will be no defunding which will cause any risk to the troops."


Does that amount to a blank check?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called the House resolution "perfect." Kind of like his ability to get away with ethics violations.
