Richardson Blasts Opponents on Iraq
Today, Governor Richardson called out his Senate colleagues who could be doing more to end the war in Iraq.
"With all due respect to my Democratic colleagues, Senators Clinton, Obama, Dodd and Biden all voted for timeline legislation that had deliberate loopholes," Richardson said in prepared remarks. "Those loopholes allow this president, or any president, to leave an undetermined number of troops in Iraq indefinitely. And this is the same legislation that former Senator Edwards says we should send back to President Bush over and over again until he signs it."
Every day, American soldiers continue to be targets of sectarian violence in Iraq, and the Senators continue to talk timelines that aren't bringing troops home now. And one former Senator wants to play a game with the President that is reminiscent of the old Bugs Bunny-Yosemite Sam argument, where one says "Oh no I'm not" and the other says "Oh yes you are", until both get more angry than ever at the other, but nothing changes.
Their way hasn't worked and it's time for something new.
