Dem McNerney Abandons His Supporters

Liberal one-term Democrat Congressman Jerry McNerney didn't wait too long to show that his "principles" run about one micron deep. In turns out that McNerney, who ran with the strong support of Bay Area liberals (mostly from outside of his district), voted last Thursday against a bill requiring US troops to pull out of Iraq (i.e., declare defeat) within nine months.

So, did McNerney plan all along to go soft on opposition to the war? If so, perhaps he should have told all the liberal (sorry, "progressive") activists who came in from the Bay Area last year that his position on the war was closer to President Bush's position than to theirs. Or, did he suddenly change his mind and decide that unilateral defeat wasn't such a good policy for the United States in the post 9/11-era?

You might say that he was against the President's policy before he was for it. That would make him the opposite of John Kerry, who was for it before he was against it.
