I can't say it any better then this from Dean Barnett at Hugh Hewitt:
Harry Reid has said he will not believe David Petraeus if Petraeus reports progress in Iraq as he’s expected to do. In other words, in addition to his declaration of defeat last week, Reid has now in essence called General Petraeus a liar. Let us not forget that this is the same senator who nearly clucked with joy over the prospect of gaining additional Senate seats because the situation in Iraq would be less than satisfactory when the next election season rolls around.
Click over and watch the video. I guarantee it will anger the blood.
Then there is dear sweet Nancy Pelosi (D) who doesn't have time to attend an update (2nd time since the surge began) from General Petraeus. Isn't this the most important issue today, at least that is the impression the left has given:
ABC NewsI guess that is better then showing up already declaring the General a liar.
As the House and Senate prepare to vote this week on the final conference report on the $124 billion troop funding bill — which would also mandate that U.S. combat troops begin withdrawing from Iraq on Oct. 1 at the latest — Gen. David Petraeus is scheduled to come to the Hill tomorrow to brief lawmakers on the progress of the recent troop escalation.
ABC News has learned, however, that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will not attend the briefing.
