Words of Wisdom

From Senator Saxby Chamblis

Congress Should Not Micromanage the War

March 30th, 2007

does not need to micromanage the war, and funding for our troops should
not be delivered with strings attached.  The continuous efforts to set
a surrender date undermine our military and are contradictory to the
Senate’s unanimous support of General David Petraeus, who is currently
executing the new strategy in. We need to give that strategy a chance
to work without tying the hands of those who are carrying out that

We have military leadership on the ground in recommending against
imposing timelines. We have civilian leaders who have significant
military experience who testified before the Senate Armed Services
Committee, and every single one of those individuals, whether they were
Republican or Democrat, has said imposing timelines is not the way to
go. A surrender date will simply embolden the enemy.

That is the Dems. They tie money to everything. They are quick to control others money, but want nobody to tell them how to spend their money. What a bunch of jerks (but we all knew that anyway, right?)
