Conservative Democrats to Side with Bush on Iraq Funding?

That's according to John Aravosis at AmericaBlog, so I can't be sure how accurate this is. But this is what John is reporting:

It's time to replace some conservative Democrats in Washington, DC. I just heard from an impeccable source that there is serious concern on the Hill that conservative Democrats in the House will vote with the Republicans to strip any and all restrictions from the Iraq supplemental tomorrow, effectively giving Bush all the money he wants with no restrictions and no effort to hold either him or the Iraq government accountable for anything. I.e., they will vote to continue this war along the same disastrous course because they're too afraid to challenge George Bush and his failed leadership.


Let me reiterate: This isn't some idle rumor. The concerns are coming from Hill sources themselves.

Yes, while the Republican leaders of the House and Senate are publicly claiming that they won't give Bush a blank check, they're maneuvering behind the scenes to do just that. And while Republican members of Congress are supposedly laying down the law for Bush in private meetings, on the House floor they're going to give Bush everything he wants and needs to continue the war indefinitely.

If that happens, then we need to hang this war, and hang every lost life and every wasted dollar, around the neck of every Republican and conservative Democrat who betrays our troops and our country tomorrow.

If this post is accurate, then I'm really curious how many of these conservative Democrats are newly elected Democrats from November 2006. As expected, the Left isn't pleased at all with the fact that conservative Democrats actually have minds of their own. Speaker Pelosi and Jack Murtha will lose their minds over this. Only if this is true, of course.

Dan Riehl:

Problem is, is this being put out to drum up pushback from the Left early, or is their cause really lost? I can't say for sure.

Update: In what can only be described as unbelievable irony, someone who calls him/herself Big Tent Democrat at Talk Left is ticked as hell that conservative Democrats may be rebelling from the Collective.

I wouldn't hold my breath, kim. The Republican Iraqi war disaster jig is about up. That's why 11 Republicans nailed the Bush idiot at the WH yeaterday.

I don't see how the Dems plan to try and push bill after bill with this crap in there. They've made their statement now they need to give the troops the money without all the BS>

LoveAmerica Immigrant:

Wieder, thanks for confirming that liberals want no victory in Iraq. The war in Iraq is a Republican war. That says it all. That 's why liberals/dems have to ensure the defeat of America in Iraq since it is not their war. That 's why Harry Reid and the whole terrorist-cheering section in the West must do the propaganda bidding for the terrorists.

This is stupid beyond parody: working for the defeat of your own country for what? For the jihadist terrorists. You don't even have a hint of shame.

This is great. LEt 's publicly hang the cold war victory around the neck of every Rep and conservative Dems. This is the confirmation that liberal dems have been working for American defeat during the cold war and now the GWOT. Liberal dems don't want American victory.

So the Left bought the votes to barely pass that first bill, but didn't cough up enough pork to KEEP 'em bought off? What a surprise.

The Blue Dog Democrats are the key to everything right now. They won't go along with the Angry Left, and we have to make sure they have a clear choice available in that regard.

P. Bunyan:

In all fairness LAI, I don't think the leftists want the terrorists to win (i.e., they're not doing it "for the jihadist terrorists"), they just don't want the Allied forces to win. In thier minds they can somehow separate the two.

It is all about short term political gains for them and since most of their percieved "reality" is fantacy based they can simply pretend the dire & evil consequences of thier actions don't exist.

Bunyan,
You do have a point. But let 's ask the blunt question: liberals would rather have the US or the terrorists win in Iraq. They can give an honest answer to that question.

P. Bunyan:

"They can give an honest answer to that question."

LOL, no I don't think they can.

Also many of them can see it as George Bush's loss or the Republican's loss and refuse to acknoledge the reality that it would be both America's loss and Al Qaeda's (and all Islamofascits') victory.

Bunyan,
you are perfectly. Yet these people don't even know it (and they can call Bush an idiot) or they know it and still do it for political power. Either way, they don't seem to have even a hint of shame.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

Only people of a lower form of humanity would call the President of the United States and idiot. No matter which party he represents. Such a person was probably sexually abused by his or her father when they were in their teens. Weider.

Wieder:

Zelsdorf (click your heels ) Ragshitheturd

Look to your own sexual perversions.

An idiot is as an idiot does. This outrageous P.O.S. incompetent hack who is called a president deserves no respect simply because he holds some title conferred upon him by SCOTUS.

DJ Drummond notwithstanding, The Chimp hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of ever being assessed by history or historians as the greatest disaster to ever have occupied the presidency.
