The surge is showing results and we want to take power to fight away

The bombings are down in Baghdad 30%. The MSM is noticing here.

And The House is proposing to create legislation to take the Commander-in-Chief's power to fight wars away. From NZ Bear at VC:

The Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives has decided to micro-manage the war effort by loading the funding bill required to authorize continued operations in Iraq with conditions and provisions designed to force the President to retreat and withdraw from the fight.

Check out the PDF of the bill. It is so UNCONSTITUTIONAL to take the CIC powers away. How are we going to fight and protect our country when our President can't protect us? The Moonbats are crazy! When will they realize we need those powers intact to protect OUR Citizens. The Democrats would rather protect the Terrorists of their humanity than the citizens of the United States. Pathetic!
From Yahoo news (HT LGF) :
A Democratic plan to require the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from
Iraq passed its first test in the House Appropriations Committee on Thursday as the panel voted to go ahead, overcoming Republican opposition.

Members voted 37-27 to uphold a provision in a $124 billion war spending legislation that calls for troops to leave Iraq before September 2008, and possibly sooner if the Iraqi government does not meet certain benchmarks. Republicans had proposed stripping out the timetable.

The vote gave Democrats a victory, if only for the moment, in their effort to challenge
President Bush's war policies and pressure him into starting a withdrawal of U.S. troops.

The committee was expected to approve the overall spending bill by later Thursday, but its longer-range fate is dim. In the Senate, minority Republicans can use procedural moves to block the troop withdrawal language and the White House has threatened to veto the bill if it contains the language forcing the removal of troops.
I just hope and pray the Republican senators and Independent Sen. Lieberman stick together and stop the closure of the bill.
