Leading Democratic lawmakers on Monday urged President Bush to consider changing the civilian leadership at the Pentagon, one week after Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld warned against fascism and appeasement as he defended U.S. policies in Iraq.

In a letter released Monday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and 10 other congressional party leaders told the president that considering making such a change would show he recognizes the problems his policies"have created in Iraq and elsewhere."

Others who signed the letter were Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois, Carl Levin of Michigan, Joe Biden of Delaware, Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia and Daniel Inouye of Hawaii; and Reps. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, Ike Skelton of Missouri, Tom Lantos and Jane Harman of California, and John Murtha of Pennsylvania.


"The Democrat leadership finally agrees on something _ unfortunately it's retreat. Whether they call it'redeployment'or'phased withdrawal,'the effect is the same: We would leave Americans more vulnerable and Iraqis at the mercy of al-Qaida, a terrorist group whose aim _ toward Iraqis and Americans _ is clear,"said McConnell, the Republican whip in the Senate.

There's a reason that Pelosi and Reid are the 'minority' leaders. It's because they're in the minority. They're in the minority because the majority of Americans don't agree with them. Given that, why should to president listen to them? It's like Limbaugh keeps saying. The Dems just don't understand that losing an election means that you don't get what you want.

unless you control the courts and then you can get abortion on demand or any other liberal policy you want that the American people would never agree with enforced without bothering with the people.

The left seems to think they are entitled to power and honestly im sick and tired of it.

The natural order of things is not a Democrat majority. So stop treating the American people with contempt and actually stand for something the people want.
