On this sixth anniversary of the WTC tragedy, the leftist Senators demonstrated buffoonery during the hearings on Iraq. Consider the news accounts here, here, here and here. The full text of the testimony of Gen. Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker is available here. Consider the following commentary.
The left has no shame
Has the left no remaining ounce of shame? Its latest target: the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, whom Senate Democrats unanimously confirmed.
Remember Democrats faulting President Bush for being inflexible, not following the advice of the generals and having no strategy in Iraq – never mind that they've never had so much as a paper-napkin sketch of a clue as to what to do in Iraq or the War on Terror? Yet, when he took decisive action that can fairly be said to have addressed all of these criticisms, they reflexively opposed him again, proving once more their allegiance to party over nation.

The capitol police hauled out hecklers from the hearing. I wish they would drag out the heckling Senators. These jerks think they get to report and are above being questioned. They are supposed to ask Gen. Petraeus the tough questions. But they grandstand and recall all their tired arguments. They are a bunch of gas-bags. Who cares what the Senators think? We want to know what the General thinks; we already know what the leftist Senators think.
Yet they all went home tonight thinking they had killed the General with their special bullet(s), not being capable of realizing they had demonstrated why they should not be sitting in the honored chairs. It is disgusting to watch and listen to elected officials who think they are gods.
General Petraeus is a man. The leftist gods? Well they're not even boys and girls yet. And Hillary wants to be his boss. What a tragedy that would be.
