Today's Resolution in the House of Representatives

We have brave men and women in harm's way protecting us and the House of Representatives votes for a resolution in which they do not support the Commander in Chief's troop buildup. Shameful.

Politics has short memories,
remember this speech from President George Bush in September, 2001 ?

"Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should
not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen. It may
include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will
starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place,
until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven
to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us,
or you are with the terrorists. (Applause.) From this day forward, any nation that continues to
harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.
