Iraq War, Congress votes 223-201 for defeat
The votes were 219 Democrats and 4 Republicans voting yea to withdraw, to 191 Republicans and 10 Democrats casting Nay votes. (For those looking to Ron Paul as a presidential hopeful, he did not vote) But democrats still want you to believe they don't want us to lose.
Now more than ever, The (D) stands for Defeat.
“Democrats in the House once again this evening put themselves on record in support of a strategy of surrender in Iraq – this time passing a bill that satisfies their temporary political needs, but fails to consider the needs of our troops and commanders in the field.
“Far from providing a ‘new way forward’ in Iraq, this bill offers not a single policy recommendation or point of strategy to keep our troops safe and secure, and put them in a position to be successful. The only thing it offers is a symbolic gesture of defeat paired with the necessary means of delivering it.
“The conditions on the ground in Iraq right now need to improve – a fact understood well by this Congress, the American people, and the president himself. But instead of coming together with a common purpose to craft a long-term strategy for success – a strategy that’s informed by facts on the ground and driven by a shared commitment to win – the majority continues to play politics at the expense of those who put themselves in harm’s way in service of our nation.
“In the same afternoon, Democrats also rejected a measure that would have closed the terrorist surveillance loophole in the FISA process – rounding out a day in which our mission in Iraq was dealt a further blow, and our ability to keep Americans safe at home was diminished right on the floor of the U.S. House.” - Roy Blunt
