    House Reps to House Dems: "Put Up Or Shaddap!"

    The line in the sand was drawn. After so much whining and crying by the Democrats in the House of Representatives about withdrawing troops from Iraq, House Republicans made a bold challenge: "Put Up Or Shut Up".

    It failed, 403-3.

    The Resolution

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) released the following statement in response to the defeat of H. Res. 571, a resolution regarding the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. The resolution failed, 403-3.
    "The U.S. House of Representatives has sent a resounding sign of support for our Armed Forces waging the War on Terror. We have said, firmly and unconditionally, that the United States of America will stand strong against those who wish to terrorize our citizens and disrupt democracy -- America's and Iraq's.
    "We have to remain on the offensive. To cut and run would invite terrorism into our backyards, and no one wants to see troops fighting terrorism on American soil. Vigilance and resolve are key to winning this War on Terror. Now, I hope that the U.S. House of Representatives can move forward united in support of our troops and determination to win this war."

    Now that we have a consensus...can we get back to winning the war?


    Thanks.

    This forces the Dems to re-affirm thier support of the war. Basically, it shoots down any attempts for immediate troop withdrawal (or what I like to call...surrender).

    ...OBTW:

    I like this new aggressive push by the Republicans in both the House and the Senate. I think Dingy Harry's stunt a few weeks back was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    Not really.

    What I saw of the house proceedings yesterday I don't really think so. The people who came out looking good were actually the Democrats in the house for once, even some of Reps say the stunt backfired.

    The Rights looked pretty bad doing what they did, and it was such an obvious ploy that I'd argue it pretty much opens the door wide open for serious resolutions to be introduced. Maybe, maybe not.
