When the members of Congress go out to play during August recess, it doesn't make for as many interesting votes to talk about and it certainly doesn't give Nancy Boyda any chances to walk out on well respected retired Generals, and by the way General Keane is apparently none to pleased with Boyda's antics.
Now Boyda says we have to withdraw troops because they are stretched too thin. Actually, we're going to withdraw some troops because the surge was never designed to go on forever. But we already know we shouldn't bother Boyda with the facts.
Last night I caught the 1/2 Hour News Hour on Fox. There's a clip I'm waiting to see on YouTube where a reporter brings the "bad news" from Iraq, we're driving back Al Qaeda, Iraqi civilian casualties are down, tribal leaders are working with us, etc. When asked what about us actually winning in Iraq, the reporter quips something along the lines of "It's too early to talk about the doomsday scenario." When I find it, I'll post it.
Anyway, back to recess. Sorry for the slower posting rate. I've been taking some time off myself, but will try to do a little better than last week moving forward. Also, if you see Boyda out and about this August, I want to hear from you. Or, if you see Lynn Jenkins or Jim Ryun out and about this August, I want your first hand report.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
