Whaaaaa . . . . . ?

Just trying out the new wheels here. 

 

I'm not sure that representing "The [sic] View From the Left" isn't going to be far too crushing a responsibility--I can't purport to speak for anyone but myself. When my mind is open and changeable, not even that.

Petraeus Testifies Before Congress on the Surge

Washington D.C.  General David Petraeus testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee today and cited the progress being made in Iraq due to the troop level increases (referred to as the 'Surge').  He has recommended a 45-day delay in reducing these  levels, but was subject to criticism from various Democrats, including Carl Levin, Ted Kennedy, and Joseph Biden; Levin citing the effort as an open-ended commitment. Hillary Clinton also offered harsh criticism, calling for a plan to begin an orderly process of removing the troops. Dick Lugar, the Republican Senator from Indiana, is also expected to issue criticism.

 

 In contrast, John McCain supports the current  troop levels, and was optimistic about the progress that has been made in Iraq.

 

 Barack Obama will speak with Petraeus tomorrow, when the General testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Not Officially Open

But feel free to look around the site and comment on it. You may even elect to create an account. All we ask is that you bear in mind we are still in development and that the site layout and sections will evolve (or change) as we get settled.

If all goes smoothly, we'll offically open sometime this coming May.

Underwear to Play a Role in VP Choice?

Some social conservatives appear to be upset at the prospect of Mitt Romney being chosen as a running mate for John McCain. I'm not saying underwear plays a role in this, but it sure makes a nice headline.

Meteorites the Cause of Leftism?

It seems that stray meteorites may be the source of life on Earth, as well as contributors to left-handedness and leftism in general:
