Just to set the record straight that Americans don't want an immediate pull out of troops from Iraq the House had a vote yesterday. For the second time a majority voted yea on expressing a commitment to victory in Iraq. 109 members didn't want to commit to victory in Iraq and instead either want to just pull out or let the chips fall where they may.
Say Anything has the text of the bill which includes things like "US troops were required for the successful election on December 15".
It's stupid that we even need a vote on this as it is the few fringe in Congress who are demanding a pull out and garnering an inordinate amount of the spotlight for such a far left anti-war position.
In a 279-109 vote, the GOP-controlled House approved a resolution saying the chamber is committed "to achieving victory in Iraq" and that setting an "artificial timetable" would be "fundamentally inconsistent with achieving victory."
Democrats voted against the resolution by a roughly two-to-one margin, underlining splits within the party over alternatives to President Bush's Iraq war policies. Thirty-four of them voted "present," a rarely used option that signals neither support nor opposition.
Those that voted "present" are basically saying "I don't give a crap".
