Senate Democrats and so called fearless leader, Harry Reid, called for Republicans to get out of lockstep with the Bush Administration. In an effort to attract Republican votes, a new war bill has essentially become retarded, with no stipulations for withdrawal.
Their proposal was not expected to set a deadline to end the war, as many Democrats want, but restrict troops to narrow objectives: training Iraq’s military and police, protecting U.S. assets and fighting terrorists, Democratic party officials told The Associated Press

Jon Stewart has fun with the report yesterday with General Petraeus. Frankly, nobody does this better. Jon’s gift for stating the obvious just can’t be beat (though Olbermann comes pretty darn close!)
Why can’t the MSM and the ‘real’ news people point out the obvious like this?? OMG!
