Standing With Petraeus Until the Job Is Done
I proudly voted against the resolution that sets a timetable — that actually announces the date — for our withdrawal from Iraq. And I’ll do so for the same reason that many prominent Democrats opposed it up until the day that President Bush announced his plan for securing Baghdad just two months ago.
Republicans have a message for our allies and for our troops, and it is this: we will continue to fight a timetable for withdrawal that has no connection to events or circumstances on the ground. We will give General Petraeus’s mission a chance. We are proud of the work the General has done. And we stand with him until the job is done.
