ISN'T IT ABOUT TIME...

As Bush stays firm, House votes pullout (Michael Kranish, July 13, 2007, Boston Globe)

The 223-to-201 vote, which is not enough to override Bush's threatened veto, came after the president delivered a report to Congress that said Iraq is making satisfactory progress on only eight of 18 benchmarks the United States has set for it.

...for the Department of Family Services to intervene in this abusive relationship, since the Democrats seem intent on going back for more drubbings?

Best line I saw was someone saying the Iraq govt, while not great, is getting more done than the US House and Senate so perhaps the military should pull out of the US.

The US Congress has not met any of its benchmarks, so it is time for the senators and congressmen to redeploy to Okinawa.

After this triumph, the house will repeal the law of gravity.

The problem is that Senate Republicans are less resolute than the Maliki government.
