The Real Sporer: Filibuster!
Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer
It's on. Unfortunately, life on the road this week will get me to bed
long before its over, but the debate thus far has been actually most
enlightening. It also profiles the vast differences between the
President and Senators and the differences among the quality of
Senators. Thus far I've seen: Diane Feinstein. Her objection was
primarily that combat in Iraq was killing Californians, and presumably
the sons and daughters of other states as well, and was monetarily
expensive. Feinstein made no mention of the cost of defeat in Iraq.
Feinstein says Iraq has angered the Islamic world against the United
States. Had we invaded Iraq or based the military in Saudi Arabia in
1979 when the Islamofascists first attacked the US directly by seizing
the American Embassy in Iran? At least Feinstein cited real statistics
and told no lies. Lamar Alexander. Lamar spent his time talking about
bi-partisanship and urging adoption of the Baker Hamilton Report.
While supporting the Constitutional authority of the President Lamar
wants the country to come together around a bi-partisan Iraq plan.
