Chris Shays lets the nation down...again

(Chris Shays hugs Joe Lieberman during the fall campaign)

Shays says he'll oppose House resolution on Iraq via WTNH.Com:
(Washington-AP) _ Connecticut's only Republican congressman says today that he's standing firm against a House resolution rebuking President Bush's plan to send more troops to Iraq.
Why am I not surprised at this?
Rep. Christopher Shays says he doesn't decide an issue of war and peace based on how it impacts him in the next election.
How about making a fucking decision based on how it impacts our nation and our armed forces? Chris, if you're using that as your excuse for opposing the resolution, you're too far over the edge to even see what's right and what's wrong.
Shays' remarks come amid a spirited four-day debate on the war this week in the House.

A Democratic resolution expresses support for U.S. forces in Iraq and opposition to Bush's plan to send thousands of additional troops. A vote is expected Friday.
We can only hope that when the resolution passes in the House (and I can't imagine it not passing) that the Senate takes the hint and approves it.

Of course, with Shays and Lieberman fouling the air, nobody can be sure WHAT'S going to happen!

no I think it's more that Shay's decision is not based anywhere in reality. IMHO of course.

unless you're talking about that shays-lieberman-bush alternate reality.

anon, for someone who was critical of Bush's prosecution of the war while he was campaigning for reelection and then to have him say he's voting against the resolution makes it sound like he out and out lied to the people of the 4th District and the nation.
