Obama goes down
Written by Bwog Staff
After their second body meeting on the subject, on Tuesday evening the Dems endorsed Senator Russ Feingold’s plan for withdrawal from Iraq within six months of the bill’s passage, defeating the Obama plan by a healthy two-thirds majority of members present. Now they’re planning a big wing ding for March 20–the fourth anniversary of the start of the war–for which they are “pumped.”
At Bwog’s request, Columbia University College Republicans President Chris Kulawik had this response:
“While we’re sure Senator Feingold can take comfort in knowing that his plan has been endorsed by such an influential and important group as the Columbia College Democrats, the Columbia Republicans are waiting to hear directly from leading Republican figures before making any endorsements. Seriously, we recognize that our members have diverse views and, therefore, we do not take any positions. At the same time, we are quite shocked that the College Democrat E-board feels that they have the authority to speak for all their members. How are campus Democrats who do not endorse the Senator’s plan represented by this decision?”
Bwog is shocked–SHOCKED–that powerless campus organizations make symbolic gestures. Who do they think they are?
