Republicans Fear Iraq Debate

The "liberal" media on TV is continuously saying the Senate blocked the debate on Iraq war. First, it's an occupation. Second, Republicans blocked the debate. The quality of mainstream journalism in this country continues to decline.
Following is the record of the 56 to 34 vote by which the Senate failed to advance a nonbinding resolution to condemn President Bush's troop buildup in Iraq. Sixty votes were needed to pass the motion.

When is congress going to step in and force our current administration to support our troops as vigirously as they supported false claims? The young soldier facing charges in Italy needs to have his government step in and at the very least speak up for him.

I feel nothing but pity for the current administration. Things are really tough in the White House right now. There's just too much terror to be president of the war on. Hooray for our chains.

You gotta love what McCain had to say"

"Our majority leader, the senator from Nevada, called the Senate into session on Saturday and let me tell you what we voted on — so that we could debate a cloture vote to cut off debate on a motion to proceed to another cloture vote to cut off debate about a meaningless resolution. That was your tax dollars of work, my friends, last Saturday."
