WAS THAT SO HARD? Via Atrios, here's Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) on the Senate floor:
In light of the rantings that went on for 30 minutes by two colleagues from the other side, I'd like to state for the record that America is not tired of fighting terrorism; America is tired of the wrongheaded and boneheaded leadership of the Republican party that has sent six and a half billion a month to Iraq while the front line was Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. That led this country to attack Saddam Hussein, when we were attacked by Osama bin Laden. Who captured a man who did not attack the country and let loose a man that did.Elected Democrats--and I'm looking at you, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): Don't whine about the Republicans. Don't complain about how mean the President is.
Americans are tired of boneheaded Republican leadership that alienates our allies when we need them the most. Americans are most certainly tired of leadership that despite documenting mistake after mistake after mistake, even of their own party admitting mistakes, never admit they do anything wrong. That's the kind of leadership Americans are tired of."
The facts are on your side, for crying out loud!
