CHUCK HAGEL IS MORE ANTI-WAR THAN THE DLC
And that's saying a whole lot. Read the interview he did at Truthout:
If we can't win and the public wants out, isn't it the responsibility of Congress to check the power of the president?You know the end is getting near when a Republican sounds more anti-war than the Democrats, especially DLC members. In fact, the DLC is inherently pro-war. Which should disqualify any of them that voted to authorize this hellhole of a war. Thank God John Kerry got the memo this time, realizing that his "I was for it before I was against it" stand isn't going to play no better this time than it did back in 2004. Hagel's starting to distinguish himself from a lot of ReThug "front-runners", many who rubber-stamped everything Bush has done since stealing the White House back in 2000.
But it seems Congress has been ineffective at that.
Well, we have. We've abdicated our responsibilities. That has to do with the fact that the Republican Party controlled the White House, the House, and the Senate. When that happens, you get no probing, no questioning, no oversight. If Bill Clinton had invaded Iraq and after two years he was having the same problems, do you think the Republican Congress would have put up with that? I don't think so.
And Joe Lieberman is revealing day by day that he isn't and probably never was a true Democrat. Which is why I will say that Harry Reid's stuck with him, after the golden opportunity of neutralizing this DLC whore was presented to him last summer and when Lieberman decided to disregard the wishes of Democratic voters in Connecticut and run Indy, Reid should have stripped Lieberman of his Committee assignments. Now this human waste is demonstrating he's going to stick it to Democrats, especially those who supported Ned Lamont, at every opportunity. I guess Colin Powell's "Pottery Barn Rule" really applies here.
But the accountability; well, folks, Sen. Chuck Hagel just handed us the weapons to beat Democrats over the head with. Since the DLC is arguing for Democrats to be more like Republicans (not ReThugs - there's a difference), ask them are they willing to become more like Chuck Hagel?
