Democratic Senators' Iraq Hypocrisy

Did you stay up all night to see Hillary Clinton speaking at four in the morning during the Democrat pajama party last night? The cots were all in place for weary senators who just had to get off their feet.

The country had been put on notice: Big night in the Senate. We stay up all night to try to end the war in Iraq. It had all the forced drama of a pep rally for a 0 and 10 high school football team.

Oh, and just by the way, new news today from a fresh Zogby poll: 83 percent of Americans say the Democratic-controlled Congress is doing only a fair or poor job — the worst mark ever for Congress in a Zogby poll.

You think maybe people notice stuff like this stunt making everybody stay up all night for an all important "end the war" vote, while the very same day the Senate unanimously passed the Cornyn amendment which expressed the sense of the Senate that Iraq should not become a failed state and a safe haven for terrorists?

That passed unanimously. Even Dems voted for that, but a few hours later they were staying up all night trying to pass a law that would force the president to surrender in Iraq.

Never mind Bush, I think McCain is right. Iraq is too important to throw away just because Democrats want to score points against a president they oppose and despise.

Democrats say they want to leave Iraq for the good of Americans and Iraqis, and when Sen. Harry Reid was asked by Jake Tapper of ABC News what would happen in Iraq after we leave, Reid bristled and refused to answer.

I think most Americans must think that, too. Otherwise what would explain the fact that 83 percent, according to Zogby, thinks Congress sucks?

The trail of polling crumbs leads back directly to congressional Democrats trying too hard to quit Iraq.

That's My Word.
