In another sign of Republican unease with the president's Iraq policies, a third GOP senator expressed support Thursday for pulling U.S. forces out of Iraq under certain conditions.BUT leaving no doubt that she won't get off the pot OR shit:
Sen. Olympia J. Snowe announced she would sponsor a bill to require American commanders to plan a withdrawal within 120 days of the bill's enactment, unless the Iraqi government meets a series of benchmarks.
"The Iraq government needs to understand that our commitment is not infinite," said Snowe, a moderate from Maine who frequently departs from the party GO Fline.
Snowe is not backing a Senate Democratic plan approved last month that would require the president to begin withdrawing troops within 120 days and would set a nonbinding goal of complete withdrawal by March.Why don't you just continue to sit there and read a fucking magazine as more American soldiers and Iraqis die because you are too busy riding the political porcelin fence...
You know, Olympia... (Can I call you Olympia, or would you prefer "vile sack of republican of shit"?) There is another party that IS IN CHARGE now. Your pathetic attempts to pretend to lead prove that you really do need to take crap. You are full of it.
As for Vermont:
The Nation -- The Vermont Senate voted 16-9 Friday morning to urge the state's congressional delegation to introduce and support articles of impeachment against President Bush and Vice President Cheney.
Dozens of communities across the country -- including forty towns in Vermont -- have urged that Congress begin the process of impeaching and removing Bush and Cheney. But this is the first time that a state legislative chamber has done made the call.
The move, which is the latest win for Vermont's large and active impeachment movement, puts pressure on freshman Democratic Congressman Peter Welch.
Welch has met with impeachment backers, but has been cautious about challenging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's declaration that impeachment is "off the table."
The overwhelming vote in the Senate will make it harder for Welch to dodge the issue, especially since the measure was introduced by the Democratic leader of the Senate, Peter Shumlin, along with state Senator Jeanette White.
My advice to you Welch: GO FOR IT!
Your constituents want it, and there are a lot of others across this nation that want Democracy and The Constitution restored in this country... We got yer back.
