The jig is up!
Dave Obey knows Congress better than anyone. His reaction to the surge resolution was realistic, as usual. "We won't have a real solution on Iraq until Republicans walk down to the White House and say, Mr. President, the jig is up, this is a bad direction and you need to rethink what you're doing".
One of those Republicans may be Wisconsin's Tom Petri, who said, "I don't think it's fair to ask our sons and daughters to be policemen in a civil war."
Good for Petri.
I am always amazed how tough, apologists for this insanity are. They are willing to send our young people into combat in the name of saving their neocon agenda. I guess they have no relatives in uniform.
Good for Nancy Pelosi. It ain't what we want but it is a good start.
