Dem Posturing Directly Endangering Troops

While unscrupulous Democratic Party leaders bluster and posture for the benefit of their more deranged constituents on the left lunatic fringe, delivery of lifesaving equipment to the front lines is being threatened:

CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq (AP) - The armored carrier has a grim black slash across its side, burn marks on the door and a web of cracks along the window. Like most of the Mine Resistant, Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles in Anbar province, this one has been hit as many as three times by enemy fire and bomb blasts. Yet, to date, no American troops have died while riding in one.

But efforts to buy thousands more carriers—each costing about $1 million—could be delayed if the White House and Congress do not resolve their deadlock over a $124.2 billion war spending bill.

And, before you ask, yes, I am questioning their patriotism. Especially majority leader Harry Reid, who is determined to subvert the US Constitution's separation of powers provisions, as well as offering as much comfort and aid to the al Qaeda propaganda effort as he possibly can.
