what he said: disappointment and anger

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

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.
