What Happened to the “Will of the People,” Democrats?
May 19, 2011
RUSH: The Democrats, ladies and gentlemen, I want you to be prepared because they have totally pulled out now of the timeline. The Democrats have dropped insistence on an Iraq withdrawal timeline. Now, my question, what about the will of the people? We keep hearing the will of the people was we gotta get out of Iraq, that’s what the election in November of ’06 meant. ‘Scrambling to send President Bush an emergency war spending bill he will sign, Democratic leaders have decided to drop their insistence on a timeline for withdrawing U.S. forces from Iraq. The move is a significant concession to the president and his Republican allies on Capitol Hill, who have steadfastly rejected any dates for bringing U.S. troops home. Democrats also are working to include a minimum-wage hike in the funding bill in an effort to push that long-delayed legislative priority into law.’ By the way, they haven’t got that done, either. Haven’t got the minimum wage done, they can’t get us out of Iraq. Do you think their side, their kook fringe base, is going to be happy with this? There’s going to be fireworks over this, this is going to be fun to watch. They’re throwing things in here like the minimum wage to try to buy ’em off, and not get so mad.
