Rick Roberts Op-Ed: PULL THE TROOPS OUT OF IRAQ?


Re-posted from Rick Roberts website at 760 KFMB Radio, November 21st, 2005

"You’ve got to tip your hat to Congressman Duncan Hunter who made the liberals in the House put their vote where their big mouths are.

He asked for a vote of Congress which basically read “if you want the troops to pull out of Iraq now, vote for them to be pulled out.”

The measure went down in overwhelming defeat.
Only 3 libs voted for pulling troops out of Iraq now.

They were Cynthia McKinney, (D-Georgia) Jose Serrano (D-New York) and Robert Wexler (D-Florida), all well-known crazies.

You’ll remember this whole debate was sparked by Democratic Congressman John Murtha’s call for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq.

Not even John Murtha voted for his own idea – when it came right down to having to put up or shut up.

On November 17, 2005 he said of our troops “IT IS TIME TO BRING THEM HOME.”

On November 18, 2005 he voted against the immediate withdrawal of our troops from Iraq.
So what does this tell you about the political rhetoric you’ve been hearing from the loudmouth liberals?

Do they really believe what they are saying? Evidently, not enough for a vote that goes on the record.

This reminds me of what happens when you confront a bully on the playground. Except these bullies are messing with the lives of our troops and the credibility of our country."
