Reid: Cutting off funding?

Say what you mean, Harry

Harry Reid has arrived at his final destination and surprise, surprise - it was where he and many of his fellow Democrats in Congress were heading all along.

The Senate majority leader said on Monday that if President Bush carries out his pledge to veto an Iraq war spending bill as long as it contains firm deadlines for troop withdrawals, Reid (D-Nev.) will stand behind an effort to yank all funding for the war effort within a year.

Well, at least now he’s being honest about his intentions. Or is he?

The White House quickly pointed out Reid’s comments of barely four months ago: “We’re not going to do anything to limit funding or cut off funds,” he said then. And a White House spokeswoman lamented the “shifting sands” among Democrats over the war spending measure.

It’s clear Reid’s trying to send a message. But at the moment the troops are the ones getting sand kicked in their faces.

Pelosi: Kowtowing to Islam - This is NOT her job

From KNX 1070 AM

The Californian Democrat spoke to reporters shortly after talks with Assad at the end of a two-day visit to Syria, which the White House has criticized as undermining American efforts to isolate the hard-line Arab country.

She said the delegation gave the Syrian leader a message from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert whose essence was that Israel was ready to hold peace talks with Syria.

She did not say more about the message, but Israel has previously made such talks conditional on Syria's cutting off its support for hardline Palestinian groups and Hezbollah.

''We were very pleased with the assurances we received from the president that he was ready to resume the peace process. He's ready to engage in negotiations for peace with Israel,'' Pelosi said.

*Laughing* Pelosi: Peace negotiator. The fact is, she's over there selling out the US and telling these terrorists that 'we will be in the White House soon. Be patient, we democrats LIKE you.' --JZ
