In a moment of bi-partisanship, all 13 members of Georgia’s Congressional delegation voted for an amendment offered by U.S. Rep. David Obey of Wisconsin that “condemns in the strongest possible terms the personal attacks made by the advocacy group MoveOn.org impugning the integrity and professionalism of General David H. Petraeus.” [Source: 9/26/2007 The Hill article “House overwhelmingly condemns MoveOn ad”]
Last week, Georgia Senators Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson joined 70 of their colleagues in voting for a similar Senate resolution that said…
It is the sense of the Senate–
(1) to reaffirm its support for all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, including General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq;
(2) to strongly condemn any effort to attack the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces; and
(3) to specifically repudiate the unwarranted personal attack on General Petraeus by the liberal activist group Moveon.org.
