From the Victory Caucus comes this gem (that has since been scrubbed from the website of the liberal bunch that sent it out but not before it was seen and saved) sent out by a liberal organization that tells way more about the mindset of the Democratic Party than they probably intended:
CHAIRMAN JACK MURTHA TO OUTLINE COMMITTEE STRATEGY ON BUSH’S IRAQ FUNDING REQUEST THURSDAY MORNING AT 11:00 AM EST ON MOVECONGRESS.ORG
Join us tomorrow at 11:00 AM EST when Congressman Jack Murtha will outline new details of a strategy to use his Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense to oppose the Bush war in Iraq. Congressman Jim Moran, another Committee member, predicts the Committee action will be the “bite” that follows this week’s Congressional “bark” – the three-day debate on a non-binding Congressional resolution.
The Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense has begun consideration of the president’s $93 billion supplemental appropriations request for Iraq. Action on the request will be the first opportunity for the new Congress to exercise its “power-of-the-purse” over the Iraq war.
Chairman Murtha will describe his strategy for not only limiting the deployment of troops to Iraq but undermining other aspects of the president’s foreign and national security policy. Chairman Murtha discusses these steps in a videotaped conversation with former Congressman Tom Andrews (D-ME), the National Director of the Win Without War coalition, sponsor of MoveCongress.org. Join us here tomorrow for this exclusive interview. (emphasis added)
The difference between "undermining...the president's foreign and national security policy" during a time of war and outright treason is so small that I can't quite figure out a way to measure it. I do not believe that President Bush has done everything right...in fact there are any number of things I wish he would change. But arguing the details of policy, personnel and procedure is not the same thing as intentionally setting out to make us lose a war. Disgusting.
