Democrats aim to delay bipartisan Iraq efforts.

House Democratic leaders are intent on sidetracking bipartisan attempts to change course in Iraq at least until fall, officials said Tuesday, rather than allow nervous Republicans to vote for legislation that lacks a troop withdrawal deadline.

Several lawmakers and aides said the goal was to deny members of the GOP rank and file a chance to proclaim their independence from President Bush by voting for a limited measure — after months of backing his policy in an increasingly unpopular war.

Yep. That’s the SCLM at work. Giving the Republican “lawmakers and aides” anonymity and using the words of a Democratic representative from Hawaii to skewer ALL the Democrats as obstructing a supposed “bipartisan” plan that would allow our country to change course in Iraq. Wow! In this attempt to paint Democrats as obstructionists in this article, it’s obvious where this writers sympathies lie. The majorities in both houses of Congress didn’t change so we can continue with some milquetoast, non-binding, “compromises” that the President won’t follow. The Democrats have already figured that out. And until enough Republicans figure that out too, and have the temerity to go against this president, they’re the obstructionists.
