The GOP Senators should be ashamed of themselves, but aren't, as they lack ethics. The latest election made it clear that the US citizens wanted us out from Iraq, with a phased redeployment, or otherwise. Rather than passing something that the people wanted the GOP goons latch on to a proposal by Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., which would protect funding for troops in combat, knowing that the Democrats would have to go on record as supporting. Why would the Democratic Senators feel required to agree to the Gregg position? Any Democratic Senator who didn't would get the Max Cleland routine by Rove and his vicious crew. They would be shown posing with bin laden, as was the decorated war-hero Cleland, if they didn't sign on the dotted line giving W authorization to fund the troops in Iraq forever.
