Wow, they passed a resolution condemning an ad? Please. There was nothing wrong with the ad. It questioned whether General Petraeus was carrying the water for the Bush Administration and their war in Iraq. It’s a legitimate question. The guy has painted a sunny picture of a stormy day in order to help Bush’s case. Petraeus or Betray-Us? Good question.
As for Mr. Bush, he said it was “disgusting”!
â€œWhatâ€™s disgusting is that the president has more interest in political attacks than developing an exit strategy to get our troops out of Iraq and end this awful war.â€?
Obama said he did not vote because: “This amendment was a stunt designed only to score cheap political points while what we should be doing is focusing on the deadly serious challenge we face in Iraq…. By not casting a vote, I registered my protest against this empty politics. I registered my views on the ad itself the day it appeared.”
