This is what deluded people voted for in November…

Dems abandon war authority provision

WASHINGTON – Top House Democrats retreated Monday from an attempt to limit President Bush’s authority for taking military action against Iran as the leadership concentrated on a looming confrontation with the White House over the Iraq war.

Officials said Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) and other members of the leadership had decided to strip from a major military spending bill a requirement for Bush to gain approval from Congress before moving against Iran.

Conservative Democrats as well as lawmakers concerned about the possible impact on Israel had argued for the change in strategy.

Oh yeah and I forgot to fume last week about how, when they announced their big bold ‘Out of Iraq Sometime’ initiative, the Dems said troops leaving Iraq should be redeployed to Afghanistan!
