Sam Brownback gave the Democrats what-for on their push to halt debate on a bill to let the terrorists win in Iraq:
“I am disappointed that Democratic leadership continues to deny the Senate the opportunity to have a full discussion of ideas on the very critical issue of the war in Iraq,” said Brownback. “It is important that the Senate has a full debate in which senators can offer amendments and vote on several different proposals.”
The Democrats are afraid of democracy. They know that if an open debate is allowed on this issue in the Senate, the American people will realize the only goal of the Democrats is to withdraw our troops in disgrace and defeat, ceding victory in Iraq to the Islamists.
This eagerness to cut and run is a disservice to our allies, a disservice to the Iraqi people, a disservice to the American people, and a disservice to the victims of Saddam’s regime. Some of those victims were Americans, lest we forget the lessons of 9/11. But they have been avenged.
We got rid of Saddam, the worst dictator the world has seen since Stalin; I’m confident we can take on the successors to chumps like Zarqawi, too. If the Democrats will let us, that is.
Keep fighting the good fight, Senator Brownback. The American people are behind you on this one.
