Give 'em Hell, Harry!
The House of Representatives will almost certainly approve a resolution Friday opposing the president's escalation of the war in Iraq. In a statement released just a few minutes ago, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he will move for a "clear up-or-down vote" on the House measure the very next day.
"For nearly four years, the Republican-controlled Senate stood silent on the president's flawed Iraq policies and watched as the situation deteriorated into a civil war," Reid says in the statement. "The American people have chosen to change course. Democrats have chosen to change course. Unfortunately, Senate Republicans have chosen obstruction. Almost every Republican who expressed concern about the escalation chose to block the Senate from debating the issue."
I can't wait for the Republican whining to begin...
