U.S. Senate Condemns MoveOn.Org

Today the Senate overwhelmingly passed a measure condemning MoveOn.Org for a newspaper ad it ran last week attacking General David Petraeus. The commanding General of all allied forces in Iraq was viciously characterized as a traitor in a full page ad in the New York Times during his Congressional progress report on the War in Iraq.

The measure passed by a vote of 72-25 with the support of 23 Democrats. NONE of the Democratic presidential candidates supported the vote.

From www.senate.gov...

Hillary Clinton -- NO

Chris Dodd -- NO

John Kerry -- NO

Barrack Hussein Obama -- did not vote (though 20 minutes earlier, he voted to circumvent the measure altogether)

Tom Harkin -- NO


If these Democrats listed above, three of whom are running for President, do NOT have the courage or backbone to stand up to an extreme left-wing fringe group like MoveOn.Org, how in the world will they ever stand up to America's enemies? How will they handle Al Qaeda and the War on Terror? The lack of action in this matter by the part of Clinton, Obama, Dodd and others seriously calls into question their credibility to be Commander-in-Chief of America's Armed Forces.

Mitt Romney put it best..."Hillary Clinton had a choice. She could stand with our troop commander in Iraq, or she could stand with the libelous left wing of her party. She chose the latter. The idea that she would be a credible commander-in-chief of our Armed Forces requires the willing suspension of disbelief."

Wow...there really are a few Democrats with brains. Good for the 23 who stood up for General David Petraeus.

Everybody should condemn these moonbat psychopaths. I am truly appalled that MoveOn has become as big as they have and that politicians actually listen to these guys. As a proud American I am offended to no end that I have to share the same land as these people who clearly hate America and all it stands for... And as proud veteran I am outraged that this has been allowed to continue.

If this doesn't say... "WAKE UP!!!!!!!" to the moderate, good-hearted Democrats, I don't know what will. How AWFUL it would be to have our commander-in-chief be in the back pocket of groups like MoveOn.org.
