Bush and Cheney Chide Democrats on Iraq Deadline
They accused Democrats of political opportunism in pushing a timetable for leaving Iraq.
Haven't they read or heard of the hundreds of polls that say the American people want this war to end? Aren't they there to enforce the will of the people who pay their salaries?
Political opportunism is a subject they know too well.
Since when does an administration have a highly paid political goon like Karl Rove on staff whose only function is political chicanery? Did the Clintons put James Carville on the tax funded payroll when they were in office? Uhh, no.
It's not a political maneuver to demand a timeline on ending this war. It's called listening to constituents and acting on their will.
