“De-Authorize the War”

Not the most elegant way to put it, but the first statement Bill Richardson made on his hour-long “Meet the Press” interview this morning reiterates what he has been saying for some time now: Stop diddling with the funding for our disaster in Iraq and take steps toward rescinding Congressional authorization of it.

Now if the other Democratic Presidential candidates will join him (Clinton and Obama already have), maybe Reid and Pelosi will take time out from their high-wire appropriations acts and get the real show on the road.

    It looks like deals have been cut in private that many or most of the Congressional Democrats are relying on in acting like September is going to be different. How arrogant that they think that the public need not be kept in the loop about how our business is being done.

    But my biggest complaint with secret deals is that my watching of politics causes me to believe that politicians keep secret deals even less often than the promises they mke more openly.
