I hate to accuse anyone of hating the military, let alone a decorated former marine, but I have to ask, what the hell is he thinking? No sooner does the last Democratic troop withdrawal plan go down in flames than he comes up with another one: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070725/ap_on_go_co/us_iraq.
Let's assume that this passes both the House and the Senate, which is far from certain. Does Murtha really expect that President Bush won't veto this bill? The Democrats don't seem likely to get anywhere close to a veto-proof majority, so all of this really amounts to nothing more than posturing and, more insidiously, attempting to weaken the resolve of the public in advance of the 2008 general election. It's shameful, when you think about it.
