    The dems will have to cut off funding or not. They won't be able to play it, with soldiers lives:

    Now who would have thought leaving our troops without funds and equipment would be bad in the public eye.

    I know, shocking! All the polls saying so, but who would have thought that in this case they might have been correct?

    Especially since the notion of "slow-bleed" was a Republican created myth. No democrat ever uttered that phrase.

    Whatever the wording Bully, that was the idea. Now the Dems scramble to get away from it:

    it really is disingenuous to portray a cut in funding as resulting in anything like troops on the ground not having enough ammunition to defend themselves...or not enough food to eat...or putting them in a situation where they needed to write and have their moms send them bus fare to get back home.

    "leaving the troops without funds or equipment" is really a red herring

    Another Republican canard, dear lady, and you fell for it. Funds would be allocated to provide for force protection and material and equipment to ensure the safety of troops during the draw-down. It wouldn't be, as the Republicans insist, a case of "Thanks alot...! See ya later...! Hope you can catch a ride home!"

    Contrary to what any of the right wing pundits say, its about bringing our troops home, not abandoning them. So, dear lady, stop drinking the kool-aid you're smarter than that.

    Well tis now the democratic representatives that are saying that. Especially interesting about Pelosi, as opposed to defending her good buddy Murtha, suddenly turns. Should be very reassuring to the rest of the party.

    no...it always has been.... suggesting that any move by congress would leave our troops without funding or equipment is nothing but a large lie told for political purposes.

    It would make it impossible for them to carry out their mission, which was the point.
