Dems 2, Repubs 0

Developing an exit stragegy for Iraq is not a game, although the Republicans spent yesterday in the Senate chanting their mindless "Dems are divided" and "cut and run" nonsense nonstop. And the mainstream media, as is their habit, is only too happy to cheer them on.
This Republican political posturing does nothing to advance what most Americans are hoping to hear from their elected representatives. It does not help achieve success, it does not support the troops, and it does not make us more secure.
The Cheerleader in Chief is no doubt proud.
And it doesn't change the facts. Not only do the Republicans in the Senate and the Bush administration not have a plan, they don't have a clue.
Senate Democrats have two plans, both with the end result of a successful redeployment from Iraq. It's not division, it's debate. At the very least, it's a start. The Kerry/Feingold amendment is no doubt the stronger of the two. If you listened to the debate last evening, you know that.
But the fact that there are two Democratic plans is not a negative. It's an attempt at progress, at success.
The Republicans and the Bush administration have nothing.

Here's one from me, Repubs. "Get a Plan".
