Democrats Finally Backing Iraq Timetable
Finally, it seems that more and more Democrats are and Iraq timetable.

Roberts, a Kansas Republican and the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, and Feinstein, a California Democrat on that panel, spoke Sunday, two days before a planned debate on the Senate floor over whether there should be a phased withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq.

"Three years and three months into the war, with all of the losses, the insurgency, the burgeoning civil war that's taking place -- what was it, seven bombings in Baghdad yesterday? -- an open-ended time commitment is no longer sustainable," Feinstein said on CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer."

"I don't think it's sustainable from the military point of view in terms of troop commitments. I don't think it's sustainable in terms of what Americans think about the war," Feinstein said.

"A timetable, some goals, some discussion with the Congress by the administration. The president might not have wanted to have done that early on, but three years and three months and a bogging down, I think, suggests that the time has come for some discussion as to where we go from here."


It seems that after a few polls came out showing a majority of Americans support a timetable, the Democrats finally got the balls to back it, which is great news for the country and probably midterm elections.

I wonder if Republicans are kicking themselves right now. Their attempts in the House and Senate to show Democrats as weak on terror are backfiring in their faces. Their stance to stay the course in Iraq - the one that they hoped would gain support from the public - is actually the opposite of what America wants. It’s almost like Republicans can’t catch a break. Oh well - I guess that’s what happens when you screw up America for so many years. It’s like, political karma.
