Today the House voted on and passed a non-binding resolution saying they don't support the President's troop surge by a margin of 246-182, which included 17 sorry, spineless Repubs and two heroic Dems (Gene Taylor (MS) & Jim Marshall (GA) - good to see there are some Dems, however few, that still have a brain and a backbone - please take a minute and go to their sites and thank them for standing with the troops and America!) who crossed party lines. The Senate will attempt a similar vote tomorrow, but it will be blocked by the Repubs who still have a backbone as well.
What does this resolution that took 4 DAYS to debate do? NOTHING!!! Well, nothing except put our troops more at risk and embolden our enemies. Then again, that's what most Dems are best at, so I'm really not surprised one bit just extremely saddened.
