    Dems will waste more time, and continue to undermine the troops - as White Flag Harry will try to bring back the Dems Surrender Bill

    White Flag Harry is feeling the heat from the anti war peace niks, and he to appease them as well as the terrorists




    Reid adjusts antiwar strategy
    By S.A. Miller
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES
    June 15, 2007


    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has refocused his antiwar crusade as his and Congress' job-approval ratings plummet to all-time lows.
    Mr. Reid began the week Monday by vowing to "push very, very hard" for troop withdrawal from Iraq in a Defense Department budget authorization bill in two weeks.
    The next day -- as the Senate began work on the energy bill and tried to revive immigration legislation -- the Nevada Democrat and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California sent a letter to the White House imploring the president to heed the Democrat-led Congress' call for a pullout.
    That same day, Mr. Reid railed against the war and U.S. military leaders in a conference call with a group of liberal bloggers.
    And yesterday, he said the Pentagon's quarterly report on Iraq shows that President Bush's war strategy is not working.
    "Attacks on U.S. forces are up, not down," said Mr. Reid, who with Mrs. Pelosi last month capitulated to Mr. Bush's demand for a war-funding bill without a troop-withdrawal timetable.
    The spate of antiwar activity by Mr. Reid follows a drop in the Senate leader's poll numbers and coincides with the start of the "Iraq summer" antiwar campaign. The Americans Against Escalation in Iraq -- an umbrella group of liberal organizations including MoveOn.org and the Center for American Progress Action Fund -- will target Republican lawmakers in 15 states "from Nevada to Maine."

    White Flag Harry is in trouble (not from the liberal media of course) over his insulting remarks he made about Gen Pace,a nd Gen Petraeus to a bunch of left wing bloggers



    Reid comments on Pace, Petraeus cause a ruckus


    Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) caused a stir on Thursday when Politico reported some unfavorable comments he had made a couple of days earlier regarding Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace, the outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. David Petraeus, U.S. commander in Iraq, during a conference call with liberal bloggers.

    Initially, several of the bloggers who took part in Tuesday’s call challenged the article and said Reid had never made derogatory comments on Pace or Petraeus. But then one, Bob Geiger of BobGeiger.com, stepped forward to confirm that the Nevada Democrat did in fact call Pace an “incompetent man” during the interview.



    As reported by Geiger, here is Reid’s full quote on Pace from Tuesday's call:

    "I guess the president, uh, he's gotten rid of Pace because he could not get him confirmed here in the Senate... Pace is also a yes-man for the president and I told him to his face, I laid it out to him last time he came to see me, I told him what an incompetent man I thought he was.”

    Geiger said the Politico article did not offer adequate context for Reid's remarks. "What he said about Pace was not said in the spirit of throwing some rhetorical red meat to a bunch of liberal bloggers by gratuitously bashing Gen. Pace -- which is certainly what one could infer from The Politico's 'reporting' on this story," Geiger wrote.

    Several of the bloggers on the call also said they did not remember Reid saying anything about Petraeus, although other sources familiar with the conversation said Reid did make “disparaging remarks” about the Iraq commander.

    RSR: do YOU think that Pace was doing a great job? why do YOU think Gates asked him to step down early? (besides the fact that he wanted a naval officer in charge - which makes sense to me!)

    Nothing new when libs attack a member of the US military

    Ellen Tauscher (D) CA - accused General Pace of dereliction of duty for supporting the President's Iraq policies. She attacked him for his personal opinions on homosexuality in military service, calling him "ignorant."

    It is nice to see Dems supporting the military

    He was doing a good job, now the Dems have stooped to attacking members of the US military

    Nothing new for them - but know they are doing it out in the open

    Of course, White Flag Harry tried to lie his way out of his insulting vcomments

    you failed to answer my question. If he was doing such a good job, why did Gates ask him to step aside?

    A Marine Corps four-star general, who rose to chair the Joint Chiefs, is now accused Dems of dereliction for his wanting to winning a war!

    More ways the Dems show their "support" for the US military
