Democratic posers

Democrats in the USA engage in some pathetic posing

Last week, al-Maliki said that Iraq was urging the international community "to take a quick and firm stance to stop this aggression against Lebanon, to stop the killing of innocent people and to stop the destruction of infrastructure."

Schumer said he wants al-Maliki to discuss his comments before the congressional address.

"Before he speaks before Congress and the American people, we ask him which side is he on in the war on terror?" Schumer asked.

"Part of the reason that America was sold on Iraq was to have a staunch ally in the region -- a democratic ally that would back our policies," Schumer said. "Now if the prime minister can't condemn terrorism, which is ruining his country ... then where are we headed?"

Separately, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-New York, declined to say whether she would attend al-Maki's speech.

"I hope that they have agreement about the outrageous comments he made with respect to Israel," Clinton said. "Look, we have a lot of fires this administration is trying to fight, and I think we have to expect he'll say something to repudiate his comments if he expects to get support from those of us up here."

Really quite pathetic. you might or might not agree with the president but he has a right to have that oppinion. Funnily enough that is exactly what potential republican presidential candidate John McCain said.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said he couldn't say whether Democrats should or shouldn't boycott al-Maki's address due to his remarks. "I don't like them either, but he's entitled to them," McCain said.
