Reid to moonbat base: Oops, our bad!
From the Turkish Press:
Anti-war Senate Democrats Tuesday plotted a new showdown with US President George W. Bush over Iraq, but admitted they had erred by making supporters think they could end the war.
"On Iraq, we're going to hold the president's feet to the fire," said Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, saying debate would start in two weeks time.
Less than a month after bowing to Bush's demands and approving a 100 billion dollar war budget, Democratic leaders pledged a new challenge to the White House on withdrawal timelines, troop readiness and curtailing the president's authority to continue the fight.
Reid said however that Democrats, saddled with a thin majority in Congress, had raised unrealistic expectations about their ability to end the war, among supporters who powered their takeover of Congress last year.
"We set the bar too high," he said, noting that under Senate rules, Democrats needed 60 votes in the 100 seat chamber to thwart Republican blocking tactics.
Translation: "We said what you wanted to hear, but we knew there wasn't a snowball's chance in Havana that we could do a damned thing about Iraq. Oh, well, at least it got us elected. Solving problems isn't really our forté, anyway. Bitching about them, on the other hand..."
Just as I have a bad case of buyer's remorse for having voted for Bush, the left (especially the moonbatosphere) is having an equally bad case of buyer's remorse for putting in these shysters last November.
