Phony Congress/Phony Patriots

On the floor of the United States Senate, Democrat leader Harry Reid said the following on October 1:

"[L]ast week, Rush Limbaugh went way over the line – and while we respect his right to say anything he likes, his unpatriotic comments cannot be ignored....he crossed that line by calling our men and women in uniform who oppose the war in Iraq ‘phony soldiers.’"

Put aside for a moment that Reid is lying about what Rush in reference to phony soldiers telling lies about their "service" in Iraq. Let's look instead at a sampling of what Democrats have said about our troops and their efforts in Iraq:

Senator Harry Reid: “That this war is lost, and that the surge is not accomplishing anything.”

Senator John Kerry: “If you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq.”

Congressman John Murtha: “Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”

Senator Dick Durbin: “If I read this to you and didn't tell you it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have happened by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags or some mad regime, Pol Pot or others that had no concern for human beings.”

Senator Barrack Hussein Obama: "we’ve got to get the job done there [Afghanistan], and that requires us to have enough troops that we are not just air raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there."

Senator Chuck Schumer: "And let me be clear. The violence in Anbar has gone down in spite of the Surge, not because of the Surge. The inability of American soldiers to protect these tribes from Al Qaeda said to these tribes, "We have to fight Al Qaeda ourselves."

Senator Edward Kennedy: "We now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management"

And that's just the tip of a very large iceberg. Applying Harry Reid's rule that insults to our troops is unpatriotic, how would readers describe the statements above?
