Posted on 01/10/2007 11:35:43 PM PST by pissant
Democrats yesterday attacked President Bush's new plan to send more U.S. troops to Iraq and began laying the groundwork for a showdown between the executive and legislative branches over war powers.
"Escalation of this war is not the change the American people called for in the last election," Democratic Whip Sen. Richard J. Durbin of Illinois said last night in his party's response to Mr. Bush's prime-time presentation of his Iraq strategy changes.
"Instead of a new direction, the president's plan moves the American commitment in Iraq in the wrong direction."
The new Democratic-led Congress plans to grill Bush administration officials during Capitol Hill hearings on the Iraq war -- beginning this morning when Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates testify before congressional committees.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said Americans want to know whether Mr. Bush's strategy is a "change of course."
"Or is this simply more of the same with slightly different rhetoric?" Mr. Schumer said.
Miss Rice will testify before the Senate and House foreign relations committees today, and Mr. Gates, who replaced the war's architect Donald H. Rumsfeld last month, will testify before the House Armed Services Committee today and the Senate Armed Services Committee tomorrow.

Durbin is a dope.
And a traitor
To a Democrat, the only thing WINNABLE is the next election, by hook or crook.
I have yet to hear any of the anti-liberty left state any position other than cut and run, or, as they like to phrase it, "responsible redeployment."
Makes me wonder, if they succeed, will they let our troops fight the animals once they are here on our streets?
White flag, followed by kneepad sessions with Osama and mookie.
I think the Dems are taking a knife to a gunfight. They're making a lot of noise but they still only have a knife.
I suggest we trade the democrat leadership to the terrorists for a used AK47 and a tub of hummus.
"Escalation of this war is not the change the American people called for in the last election
Plastic knife, no less.
Ya nailed it.
The Dems would rave about the jobs and economy boosts for all American.....building Mc Mosques, Mc Muslim only communities like in Saudi...the Americans will live behind the wall in the compounds and the rest will be Muslim only zones.
Bush needs to work at light speed before he leaves office to see that the Dims cannot undo all he work that has been done to keep America Free.
Well, I have, as of today, officially had it. Moderator, you may wish to edit or zot me here-- DemocRATS and liberals: Kiss my ***. You ******* are the same ******** that are responsible for the deaths of the hundreds of thousands that we abandoned in Vietnam. You perpetuate the legacy of Stalin, and dare I say, Hitler, and your names will be recorded in History as the most powerful COWARDS in history. You are despicable, and I pray for the day that the average, decent Americans see you for the piece of dog**** that you are and scrape you off their figurative shoes. Screw you, you anti-American, anti-military, traitorous pieces of filth. I pray for the day charges of sedition are once again pursued against our domestic enemies. I want you jailed, deported, hanged and harrassed.
It's really very simple.....
If America wins, Democrats and thier International Socialist Paymasters lose...
Could not have said it better myself.
Agreed; but hanging is too good for them and the RINOS who support the damned Dems.
I agree. Chum the waters for sharks.
