Sen. Dodd To Co-Sponsor Reid-Feingold Bill

This is the way to step up:

The Feingold-Reid Bill helps Congress finally put the brakes on the Administration's failed Iraq strategy, and serves notice to the President in terms he can't ignore. "It sets forth a new direction that will require the Iraqis to take responsibility for their future by mandating the safe, phased redeployment of US combat forces from Iraq, with a hard date for completing that redeployment. It also very responsibly provides for a continued, very limited role for US troops who remain in Iraq -- equip and train Iraqi security forces, carry out limited counter terrorism operations and protect US personnel and infrastructure. I am pleased to join with Senators Feingold and Reid as a co-sponsor on this important legislative initiative. I would urge the President to embrace the new direction set forth in the bill.

Thank you Senator Dodd. Senator Clinton? Senator Obama? And how about some statements of support from Edwards and Richardson?

    Thank You Senator Reid, Feingold, and Dodd (5.00 / 5) (#1)

    Thank You for not buying into the bullsong that you will hurt my family or any other military family by fighting this fight.  Our soldiers are going one way or the other.  They may go over to help pack up and bring everything and everyone  home or they may go over and who knows when they are coming back if ever, my pick is the first choice.  Thank You!  My husband's skills and all the training we have put into him have been squandered enough.  It is time our soldiers returned to a position where they can honestly be used to keep America safe and as well protected as we are able.

    Excellent "call-out." (5.00 / 1) (#2)

    Do you think now that there may have been some method to the Dems' madness?  This incremental approach of a non-binding resolution, then a bill declaring the war illegal by a date certain, and then a bill cutting off funding, has allowed the Dems to propose the current bill in a more politically hospitable climate than if they just introduced it right away with no intermediate steps.  

    Slow and steady wins the race, the tortoise says.
