C.I.R. Press Alert

-- Finally someone has the guts to be completely honest and wrong… Today Dennis Kucinich made the following statement:

"I want to say that there's one solution here, and it's not to engage in a debate with the President, who has taken us down a path of disaster in Iraq, but it's for Congress to assume the full power that it has under the Constitution to cut off funds. We don't need to keep indulging in this debate about what to do, because as long as we keep temporizing, the situation gets worse in Iraq.

"We have to determine that the time has come to cut off funds. There’s enough money in the pipeline to achieve the orderly withdrawal that Senator McGovern is talking about. But cut off funds, we must. That's the ultimate power of the Congress, the power of the purse. That's how we'll end this war, and that’s the only way we’re going to end this war.

No debate with the President, can you just smell that bi-partisanship? I am not saying that Congress does not hold that power, I do not believe they should use that power but that is another debate. I would like anyone from the left to defend the above position as anything other than LITERAL “cut and run.” He wants no debate over how to correct things he just wants to CUT the funding and thereby forcing an end to the war. Hey, if you agree that is your right… but don’t try to say it isn’t “cutting and running.” Dare I say he is even further out on the limb than Murtha.

Will the entire Democrat party embrace Kucinich’s cut and run plan?
