Drudge: 'Dem Chairman FOR the escalation ... until Bush proposed it...'

I'm off to class, but just thought I'd get the ball rolling today with this piece of liberal hypocrisy:

"In a surprise twist in the debate over Iraq," the story began, Mr. Reyes "said he wants to see an increase of 20,000 to 30,000 U.S. troops as part of a 'stepped up effort to dismantle the militias.' "

"We have to consider the need for additional troops to be in Iraq, to take out the militias and stabilize Iraq," the Texas Democrat said to the surprise of many, "I would say 20,000 to 30,000."

Then came President Bush's expected announcement last week, virtually matching Mr. Reyes' recommendation and argument word-for-word -- albeit the president proposed only 21,500 troops.

Wouldn't you know, hours after Mr. Bush announced his proposal, Mr. Reyes told the El Paso Times that such a troop buildup was unthinkable.
Of course, we had the same thing going on with most Democrats during the election. But now that they're not accountable to the American people, the hideous liberal agenda comes out. Isn't that how it always goes?
