Pelosi’s – wait for it, folks – Doing Her Job.
It’s become clear over the last several years that the administration is militarily incompetent. The Commander in Chief has no active military experience, but his idiotic opinions and illusions trump the wisdom and field experience of his generals.
John Murtha, with Pelosi's backing, is planning to say, essentially, “We’ll throw you some more money. Fine. We’ll fund your insane escalation. But if we’re sending our troops into the mouth of hell, we’re gonna make sure they’re trained, rested, protected, supported and otherwise treated like human beings instead of cannon fodder. If we’re gonna use our taxpayers money to continue this fiasco, we are going to take control of how the money is being used.”
And that, folks, is how you support the troops.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the House follows through.
