Both senators are catering to the nutroots-lefties in the Democratic Party.
But when it comes time for the general election, these two are going to be held accountable for voting against funds to support our troops’”just like John Kerry was held accountable by President Bush when he voted against the funding bill for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. (After originally voting to support the use of force in Iraq a year earlier).
All of this just goes to show how McGovernized the Democratic race has become. This catering to the left may win them support from liberal primary voters, but it will seal their defeat come Election Day.
Meanwhile, Senator John ‘Backbone’ McCain is accusing Hillary and Obama of surrendering to al Qaeda.
It’s yet another strong point.
