AP Spins for Cut and Run Democrats
This is just so typical anymore. The Associated Press headlines the news tonight on the current Iraq resolution debate:
Republicans block Senate debate on Iraq
The BBC joins in…
Republicans block Iraq war debate
Meanwhile, back in reality, it’s the Democrats who want to cut debate short.
* The Democrats position is that debate should be ended and a vote taken on the resolution. By opposing cloture, the Republicans are actually keeping debate open.
* Democrats want to prevent resolutions from being considered. Republicans want to keep debate open to force Democrats to consider and debate other resolutions.
The AP is spinning for Democrats on their vote to end debate and move to the vote.
And, Good for Senate Republicans!
