Give 'em hell Harry!

Well, it appears Harry Reed is finally showing some backbone, he;s forcing the Republicans to back to war and W. Common' now, no more mealy-mouthed accomodation, no more backing down!

Bob Geiger writes:

"Forcing his Republican colleagues to put up or shut up on the notion of an up-or-down vote, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) just moments ago announced that he will immediately file a cloture motion on the Reed-Levin troop redeployment bill and, if Republicans follow through with a filibuster, will place the Senate in a prolonged all-night session Tuesday to force a true continuation of debate."

Tonight the Dems will be hosting a filibuster party in the Senate, forcing the obstructionist Republicans to show their true colors. Most folks, not paying too close attention to the seemlingly impenetrable mysteries of Senatorial parilamentary proceedure, might be at a lost to understand why we're still talking about withdrawing from Iraq almost a year after the Dems rolled into the majority in Congress on a decidely anti-war tide.

It's because up until now the Dems have tried to find concensus, which to the Republicans translates as "surrender." It's long post due for the Dems to show some guts and make the Republicans come out of hiding to show the whole country who's keeping us in Iraq. If the GOP wants to stand with their president, then fine. The war will go on, but the GOP will wind up in the political wilderness for another generation to come.
