In 06, I donated quite a bit to the Democrats, every time with the caveat that, if they win, they'll stop the war and control Bush.
It only took me 20 seconds to say, "I told you in 06 you had my support so you would stop Bush and end this war. Now, the Democrats have caved to Bush the Lesser and you want my money? No way. You should be asking the White House for money - that's who you are supporting, after all. Don't call me again until you get a spine."
I can only imagine that they are starting to get a lot of calls like this. I'm very sad about this. The Republics were finally on the defensive, raising less money, fighting off legal charges, etc.
Now that the Democrats have shown they are not really serious about ending the war, I believe the tide will turn again. I'm sad that it has happened so early, but it's the just fruits of the Democrat's inaction.
I've written Reid, Pelosi and my senators and representatives to let them know they've lost my support once they sign their name to fully fund the war. The blood of many Americans and many more Iraqis are now on their hands.
