Blonde moment

And the silver spoon.

Tying up loose ends…

From my notes on the District 3 Town Hall meeting.

So, Congressman Ramstad’s position on Iraq can be summed up as follows:
1. If he would have had the intelligence he has now back when he voted in favor of Iraq, he’d vote against it. Nor should we set arbitrary pull out dates
2. That said, we can’t cut and run; so we need to stick it out to complete the mission
3. The mission can be defined as training the Iraqi Army and Police to take care of their own security
4. He is against the surge for two reasons
a. The generals on the ground didn’t ask for it
b. It makes the Iraqi Army and Police more dependent on the Americans which defeats the point of the mission.

To clarify Ramstad’s position on having health insurance to drive… it’s really a move in the direction of universal health coverage, much as they have it in Massachusetts. (Indicative on who his pony is in the race.)
