Edwards To Fellow Dems: Grow Up

Written by John DeSio on . Posted in Politics, Posts.

Scott Maxwell of the Orlando Sentinel has an interesting item on his blog from yesterday, where he recounts a Thursday night John Edwards fundraiser in Central Florida. Edwards took time out from chastising President Bush to chastise his own party’s Senate delegation and their non-binding resolution opposing the troop surge in Iraq. Maxwell wrote:

"If they are truly opposed to the build-up, Edwards said Democrats should put
back their words with action by voting against funding measures. Because, if
complaining is all the Democratic leaders want to do, Edwards asked: ‘Why don’t
we go stand in the corner and stomp our feet like an 8-year-old?’
