Fighting Democrats

On the heels of today's House revolt on spending, Reid blasts Cheney on the Senate floor tonight, saying "we need answers and a way forward in Iraq, not another Cheney attack speech." He also points out that anyone who has time to meet with DC insiders, oil executives, and convicted felons like Chalabi ought to find time for a press conference to give answers to the American people. He also framed yesterday's Iraq vote as a bipartisan vote of no confidence in the administration's Iraq policy.

But nobody beats ex-Marine John Murtha (D-PA) for clarity:

I like guys who've never been there to criticize us who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there, and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what need(s) to be done. I resent the fact on Veterans Day he criticized Democrats for criticizing them.

This is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion! The American public knows it. And lashing out at critics doesn't help a bit. You got to change the policy. That's what's going to help with the American people. We need to change direction. The troops -- what hurts the troops are the things that I listed before.

Scott McClellan bleats that Rep. Murtha has joined the Michael Moore wing of the Democratic party and surrendered to terrorists. Despicable.
