Marching Towards a Red November

HT to Political Pistachio for this story:

House of Representatives rejects Iraq pullout date

The vote was 256-153 (42 democrats broke party ranks to join the GOP, voting for the measure) approving a nonbinding resolution that praises U.S. troops, and labels the Iraq war part of the larger global fight against terrorism and states that a date for withdrawal is not in the national interest.

House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, said that, "Retreat is not an option in Iraq. Achieving victory is our only option, for the American people and our kids."

The Democratic Leader, Nancy Pelosi of California, made a number of pleas and anti-Bush remarks, including: "It's time to face the facts, the war in Iraq has been a mistake. I say, a grotesque mistake."

Doesn't matter what she says. The proof is in the vote.


The vote in the Senate was 93-6, yet another overwhelming majority.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tennessee, predicted that terrorism would spread around the world, and eventually reach the United States if America were to "cut and run" before Iraq can defend itself.

In a radio interview Vice President Cheney said that the war was "in part responsible" for the absence of terrorist attacks in the United States since the September 11, 2001 strikes. Cheney also said that U.S. soldiers involved in alleged atrocities in Iraq should be presumed innocent until proven guilty, and predicted that the Republican Party would win November congressional elections (as opposed to the Democrat's cries that the Republicans will lose badly because public opinion polls say so).

The TrekMedic applauds this post and simply adds:

Those would be the same public opinion polls taken by researchers underwritten by the leftist MSM press, right?

Glad you liked the post, and I feel honored that you reprinted it on yours with a link showing it came from my blog: Political Pistachio. I enjoy writing, especially when it comes to writing articles defending the freedom and liberty I find so dear. Rock on, brother - - oh, and don't you find it interesting that the Fox News polls disagree with the CNN and MSNBC and ABC and CBS and NBC polls? My favorite is comparing the newspapers Los Angeles Times polls (ultra-liberal) and the Orange County Register polls (Conservative) out here in Southern California. Night and day. The vote is the poll that counts - - unfortunately a lot of fence-riders don't understand that and allow the polls to sway their votes. Here's to a Red November. Here's to continuing to take the fight to the enemy so that they don't bring it back to our soil.
