Here’s your list of the 25 Democrats who voted against Sen. John Cornyn’s resolution expressing support for Gen. David Petraeus in the face of that despicable MoveOn.org smear ad. Like MoveOn.org has said, they bought it, they own it:
Sen. Cornyn’s statement:
“The Senate today overwhelmingly passed an amendment sponsored by Senator John Cornyn, a member of the Armed Services Committee, that strongly condemned a recent ad by MoveOn.org attacking the patriotism and integrity of General David Petraeus. The Cornyn amendment put the Senate on record in reaffirming “its support for all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, including General David H. Petraeus,” and “specifically repudiates the unwarranted personal attack on General Petraeus by the liberal activist group MoveOn.org.”
“This amendment was an opportunity for every Senator to declare with not only their voices but also with their votes that they fully support our troops and our commanding General in Iraq,” Sen. Cornyn said today. “For MoveOn.org and their left-wing allies to brand General Petraeus a traitor and a liar crossed a historic line of decency. It was a despicable political attack by a radical left-wing interest group. I’m pleased that majority of the Senate, in a bipartisan vote, has repudiated it. We will not tolerate the patriotism and integrity of our troops and their leaders in the field being dragged down into the swamp of Washington politics.”
Here are the anti-MoveOn.org Democrats who sided with Gen. Petraeus and voted for the Cornyn resolution. The nutroots aren’t happy:
