Operation "Cut 'N Run" Version 4.0

San Fran Nan is once again going for the moonbat appeasement. The Politico reports that latest Iraq appropriations bill once again tied to a pull-out:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she would bring a new Iraq measure to the House floor shortly to provide $50 billion in funds for the war, while requiring U.S. troops to begin redeploying out of Iraq immediately and conclude by the end of next year.

“In last year's election, the American people called for a new direction; nowhere was that direction more called for than in the war in Iraq,” Pelosi told reporters. “And so in the next day or so, we [will] once again bring to the floor legislation that makes a distinction, a clear distinction: choose a new direction from the Bush foreign policy in Iraq.”

In the last election, voters may have been calling for a new direction but it wasn't cut 'n run it was "let's win already". The Administration (and the RNC) needs to take this opportunity to highlight the recent successes of the summer surge to show how this move looks even dumber than it did a year ago.

The Dems in Congress rolled the dice last spring that this would be the "summer of Iraq" and that bad things would happen to the mission if they sprinkled pixie dust and really, really believed.

Well, as a venerable Jedi Knight once said, "When you gamble, my friend, sometimes you lose."
