  Tucker tries to paint Baird as part of the anti-war crowd. Wrong...and that term is idiotic in this debate since most of the country is against the Iraq war.   icon Download It's time we expose them and get them out of office. Stoller: Did You Do Your Bush Dog Democrat Homework? Please read this....

Chris Dodd:

In fact, debating over military tactics when there is no military solution only undermines efforts by those of us who believe that we must change course in Iraq now and begin to immediately redeploy US combat forces so that Iraqi leaders will have the impetus to find a political accord.

There is no working government and it's dead wrong to tell the Iraqi's who should be in charge of their government. They voted, correct? Duncan calls it about right.

I didn't think the Bush Dogs would have this much power. And now they are coming out with more force then I can remember. Petraeus has nothing to fear in September. I don't understand it. Do they feel the Iraq war is like a football game and all we need to do is win one for The Gipper? Magically, the whole country will change----Sunnis and Shia's will hold hands---the Kurds and Turks will smoke a peace pipe as Pat Boone plays in the background.
