It’s got to be good news when Nancy Pelosi can’t even wrangle the Democrats together to support her Screw the Troops and Diplomats bill:
A House vote on whether to label as genocide the killings of 1.5 million Armenians by what is now Turkey — a resolution that deeply offended that key U.S. ally — could be delayed as Democrats hash it out.
While top Bush administration officials and powerful Democrats press colleagues to scrap the measure, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on Tuesday appeared to hedge his pledge to bring it to a full vote before November’s holiday recess.
“I said I thought we would bring this up prior to us leaving here,” said Hoyer. “I have not changed on that, although I would be less than candid [not] to say that there are a number of people who are revisiting their own positions.”
You’ve got to just know the bill is a bad one, when even CNN describes it as “a resolution that deeply offended that key U.S. ally.”
