George and Dick Pooh-Pooh the Surge!!!

😛 No! Not that George and Dick, silly!! This George and Dick!!
George Voinovich and Dick Lugar!
Original DVD cover.

From ABC News:

Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., a respected, six-term senator who’s the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, publicly challenged the management of the war and called for a change of direction.

Lugar, a past supporter of Bush and the war in Iraq, showed signs that his support was waning when he voted in February in favor of a symbolic resolution, expressing disapproval of the president’s so-called “surge” strategy.
But Lugar took his concerns one giant step forward on Monday night, when he unexpectedly came to the floor of the Senate to call for the U.S. to begin withdrawing troops as soon as possible.

He was followed in his call by another Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, and was applauded by Sen. John Warner, R-Va., the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, who said that after the 4th of July recess, other Republicans would make similar calls to end the war.

  1. Friend of the court

    The Republicans are having their cake and eating it, too. They are making empty statements against the occupation, now that they have seen just how effective the Democrats have been in opposition. It costs them nothing and they will be able to say, when it ends very badly, that they are on record as being against it. One vote is worth a thousand words.

    you are exactly right, fotc. all of this is just posturing. what got me is that the white house said they would send out stephen hadley to speak to lugar this week. it immediately reminded me of the mafia. i wonder what dirt they have on lugar that hadley will threaten him with.

  3. Friend of the court

    Between the “Protection” and “Teh Numbers”, it’s easy to become confused.

  4. It’s funny how they don’t think “we see right through there game.

    Let’s see if they are so vocal in September.

  5. ABC write:
    “Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., a respected, six-term senator who’s the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, publicly challenged …”

    Why don’t ABC surprise everyone and write instead:
    “Sen. Richard Lugar, another of those effing wanker republicans, you can’t tell the difference, they all sound the same, made another bunch of ineffectual remarks on the Senate floor today … etc.”

    I think my version reads better and is nearer the truth.

    If ABC want to refer to effing Democrats to balance things up, I think that would be OK as well.

    Comes a point when frustration with politicians unable to make any useful contribution to sorting out Chimpy’s various messes should be expressed in a loud and forceful way, so that said pols might feel a little discomforted. All the pols need some prodding to get them to take some action.

    i think it is time that both the pols and the media realize that they are insulting to the population. they really think that they have dumbed things down enough so that they have made us all dumb enough to buy the crap that they are peddling. instead, they have made us realize how fat and lazy all of them are.
