Dems could be happier with Herseth
Tim Gebhart (whom contributes to the No-On-E weblog, along with yours truly) over at A Progressive on the Prairie has a funny post from a Democrats point of view how Congresswoman Herseth has been with the GOP on Middle East issues up until... about yesterday. Now she's changing her mind.
Why do I so often have to chortle at things Rep. Stephanie Herseth says? Today's local daily gives another prime example.Read it all here. Tim hopes she's changing her mind, as opposed to being expedient. I'd just thank her for her prior support, and question why she's changing her mind now.
Seems Herseth forgets she is among those who did not challenge the Bush policies. In fact, it was just eight weeks ago that she was one of only 42 Democrats voting for a Republican resolution backing the Bush Administration's Iraq policies. This is nothing new. A year earlier she supported another resolution backing the Bush Administration line on Iraq. And, in May 2004, the local daily's editorial board asked, "Knowing what we know now, would you support the Iraq war?" Herseth's response? "Yes, I still would have supported taking this action."
