Just a reminder. It was about 10 months ago that the Democrats stated that the American people wanted to pull out of Iraq. The House held a vote on November 18, 2005. The vote count was 403-3 to remain in Iraq. As the Washington Times reported:
The resolution failed 403-3, with six voting present. Those voting for it were Democrats Cynthia A. McKinney of Georgia, Robert Wexler of Florida and Jose E. Serrano of New York.
Republican leaders wanted to force Democrats to take a stand on whether they endorsed Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. John P. Murtha's Thursday proposal to begin a six-month withdrawal from Iraq.
How could so many Dems have voted against the American public's overwhelmimg consensus? How could Cong. Murtha have voted not to pull out after all of his speeches back then? These are the steadfast statesmen we need to defeat the enemy Islamists?
