Ryan and Sensenbrenner insult our troops
Two Wisconsin Republican Congressmen had statements recently that are so insulting to our troops and our nation that they should be asked a few more questions about the statements before being allowed to pretend they were on the correct side of this issue a few days after the election was over.
The president's decision to bring new leadership to the Defense Department is the right thing to do, and it's a change that's overdue.
-- U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, responding to the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
The war has been mismanaged.--GOP U.S. Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner.
Really? Do you think those statements might have been helpful a few months or even a year or so ago? Do you think if you and a few more Republicans would have spoken up a long time ago that we could have changed the path of the war sooner?
Just how long have these two felt like this and looked the other way while the war raged on and soldiers died so they could try to protect their party going into the election? Ryan says it's overdue so he must have been thinking this for a while but kept silent. Keeping that to himself for five minutes was too long when you are talking about people dying.
