Atheist Revolution says what I've been thinking ever since the Congressional Democrats gave in to Bush's demand for a blank check for the Iraq War:
I am extremely disappointed and angry with the current crop of Democrats in Congress. By caving into Bush's war funding with no strings attached, this is now their war too.
I do not buy the rhetoric that this funding bill was merely a "temporary setback in their efforts to bring home American troops." This is spin to conceal a failure by many within the Democratic Party. Those who voted for this bill are not worthy of our support for they have betrayed the voters who elected them.
If the Democrats are not willing to stand on principle, to represent the will of the people who elected them, and to hold a corrupt administration accountable, I am not sure why the average voter should continue to support them. [emphasis added]
There is always the "lesser of two evils" argument, but that's hardly an inspirational sentiment.
