How does one of the two major political parties in this country allow a man like Tom DeLay to be Majority Leader of the House of Representatives? Link:|
Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also sought Rumsfeld's resignation.This would be like if Ted Rall and Noam Chomsky had a kid, and that kid was the head of the Democratic Party.
"For the good of our country, the safety of our troops and our image around the globe," Harkin said in a statement, "Secretary Rumsfeld should resign. If he does not resign forthwith, the president should fire him."
Republican lawmakers responded at a news conference, with Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, saying that "this morning, in a calculated and craven political stunt, the national Democratic Party declared its surrender in the war on terror.”
Democrats, said Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, "basically are giving aid and comfort to the enemy."
