Dems Voted Against Honoring Troops

You'll hear this line over the next day or two. Hopefully not too often because it's bullshit.

Republicans sponsored this bill (summary text follows) so they can campaign in their various races to say with a straight face that "Democrats voted against honoring troops." There were 90 "no" votes from Ds and two, R "no" votes (Roll Call vote
here.) from Republicans
States that the House of Representatives: (1) affirms that the United States and the world have been made safer with the removal of Saddam Hussein and his regime from power in Iraq; (2) commends the Iraqi people for their courage in the face of unspeakable oppression and brutality inflicted on them by Saddam Hussein's regime; (3) commends the Iraqi people on the adoption of Iraq's interim constitution; and (4) commends the members of the U.S. Armed Forces and Coalition forces for liberating Iraq and expresses its gratitude for their valiant service.


What kind of person 1) Supports this tactic of blame; 2) Believes it? 3) Believes we, as Americans, are safer?
