Sheehan, Iraq War Protesters Break Up House Democrats' Press Conference

WASHINGTON -- Iraq war protesters broke up a press conference by House Democrats on Wednesday with chants to bring American troops home from Iraq.

Chanting "de-escalate, investigate, troops home now," the protesters disrupted a briefing aimed at outlining priority goals when Democrats take over the House and Senate on Thursday.

Cindy Sheehan, an anti-war activist and mother of a soldier who died in Iraq, led the group to Capitol Hill to warn Democrats that party activists expect them to end the war in Iraq and confront the White House on a change in Iraq strategy.

"We didn't put you in power to work with the people that have been murdering hundreds of thousands of people since they have been in power," Sheehan said. "We put you in power to be opposition to them finally and we're the ones who put them in power."

Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., cut the press conference short when protests drowned out his voice through a dozen microphones set up to record his comments. Emanuel said Democrats would go back to the caucus room and return later.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is set to become the first female House speaker in congressional history. She and other top House Democratic leaders met with Sheehan and her supporters in private meetings on Wednesday.

Analysts say Democrats need to focus on the war in Iraq soon. Democrats plan to tackle the domestic agenda first.

Who the hell does this Sheehan woman think she is? Doesn't she know they MADE her?

Be sure to watch the video where Sheehan takes over Rahm Emanuel's mic. Funny stuff.

Time to marginalize them. Only problem, you ask, is how do you marginalize someone [so marginal] that you previously had lionized? Well, the Democrats are experts.

Sheehag is an insane publicity hound, but don't be surprised if this wasn't a setup.

Let's hope she's running wild and free to stick it to Democrats for a change!

Sheehag needs a rubber room and lots of drugs.

The Far Left regards the midterm victory as their own. They kept a fairly low profile, and didn't challenge the Democratic House candidates who repeatedly assured voters they did not plan a precipitous, deadlined withdrawal from Iraq.

Now, they demand the spoils of that victory. They expect an immediate withdrawal and full impeachment hearings soon.

When they don't get those things, they are going to be sorely ticked off. In fact, our best chance to retake the House in '08 is the extreme left and the antiwar moonbats deserting the Democrats over the war.

It will be tough enough for Pelosi and Reid to restrain those among their elected officials who would take such a course. They have ZERO chance of convincing the Left to be patient on Iraq for another two to four years.

Sucks to be them. Oh, well: when you lay down with dogs, you forfeit your right to be surprised when you wake up with fleas.

Hey guys:

It is a mistake at this point if we marginalize "Mother Sheehan."

The democrats want to marginalize her right now and it is a mistake if we help them.

Do you want "Mother Sheehan" in jail or camping on her property in Crawford OR do you want her standing in the door of Pelosi's office?

Oak Leaf,

You're right about the need to keep Cindy in the spotlight, but the MSM decides who/what gets coverage, and if she proves too damaging, the cameras will merely be turned off.

Remember that 90% the media mow have an interest in shutting her up for damage control.
