All Glory - No Guts

Representative Murtha submitted a bill for the immediate withdraw of US troops from Iraq.  The Democrats gave him a standing ovation after his speech on the floor, then only 3 people voted for the bill.  What is wrong with this picture?

HatTip: Rough Ol’ Boy

Update:  I missed the fact that the Republicans removed the caveat “earliest practicable date” which is an underhanded trick.  But instead of abstaining from the vote or accusing Republican leadership of substantially changing the bill they accused the Republicans of character assassination.  Perhaps the Democrats need to grow a pair and stand up for something for a change.
