Senate Stopped From Betraying Country, For Now

Senate Democrats fell four votes short of passing a resolution to provide aid and comfort to terrorist insurgents in Iraq. This is the same resolution that Dems were able to pass in the House.

WASHINGTON - The Senate gridlocked on the Iraq war in a sharply worded showdown on Saturday as Republicans foiled a Democratic attempt to rebuke President Bush over his deployment of 21,500 additional combat troops.

The vote was 56-34. That was four short of the 60 needed to advance the measure, which is identical to a nonbinding resolution that Democrats pushed through the House on Friday.
The Democratic Party has decided its political hopes lie in open treason; the political defeat of the US in Iraq.

Only four Senators stand between them and the first step in their goal.
