Yesterday, Gabby proclaimed to the United States that she is more powerful, more influential, and is a better military commander, when she voted to override the President’s veto on the Democrats Iraq bill. Gabby’s vote proclaimed that she is better than every military expert, including General David Petraeus, who has said that the troop surge needs till the end of the summer to see if it will have any positive effects. Fellow 4-Star Giffords, however, had her own political agenda in mind when she cast her vote. The measure of course failed 222 to 203 votes, far short of the 2/3 majority needed to snub a veto.
But really it was just another day at the office for Gabby. She has been in lock step with the most liberals members of Congress since she was sworn in. Now that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have agreed to the President’s terms to drop the timetable language, what will Gabby do? The most liberal Congressmen and Senators are splitting from the party leadership, saying they will not vote for any bill without the timetable attached to it.
Gabby’s vote will prove one of two things, depending on which way she goes. Either she is the lapdog of the Congressional Democratic leaders, or she really is an ultra-liberal.
What will she do to save her seat on Pelosi One?
