Awaiting Bush’s Iraq Plan, Democrats Weigh Replies

WASHINGTON, Jan. 3 — Some key Senate Democrats say they could consider supporting a short-term increase in American troop levels in Iraq, a stance that reflects division within the party and could provide an opening for President Bush as he prepares to announce his revised plan for Iraq as early as next week.
Several Democratic senators echoed Mr. Biden’s view, saying they believed that sending more troops would not resolve the predicament in Iraq.
Kudos to senator Biden and the several senators for standing firm, but where are the rest of the Democratic senators that were voted into office. And they were voted into office mainly on the Iraq War issue...HELLO!
Remember the one voice of the neocons that got us into this mess? Well, if you do, remember their fate because your terms in office will be short, and the outraged voices of the majority will cry out for accountability.
Check out the remarks of these weenies!
Mr. Levin said, he would not rule out supporting a plan to dispatch more troops if the proposal was tied to a broader strategy to begin reducing American involvement and sending troops home.
Mr. Reid has said that he will consider supporting a short-term increase in troops, but his spokesman, Jim Manley, declared, “If it’s not temporary in nature, it’s a nonstarter
Representative Steny H. Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat who will be the House majority leader, stopped short of saying that Democrats would exercise the power of the purse and decrease financing for American troops. Yet he said the new Congress was “not going to sit silently by while policies are pursued with which we don’t agree.”
I am not in favor of that unless the president can convince me otherwise,” Senator Mark Pryor, an Arkansas Democrat who will serve on the Armed Services Committee, said of a possible troop increase.
It's time for "We The People" to get back into action
and time for the Democrats to get some traction
