Senator Patty Murray, Just Not Anti War Enough

The liberal left seems to be getting upset with Senator Murray for not being anti war enough. David Postman's blog states:
Chad (The Left) Shue see two wildly divergent views surfacing about Sen. Patty Murray's anti-war efforts. Locally, Shue points to this post by Noemie Maxwell at WashBlog. Maxwell says of recent tough talk by Murray, about President Bush's Iraq plan, "it looks to me like political cover for your failure to take meaningful action."

There'll be a demonstration outside Murray's Seattle office Wednesday by anti-war activists, who Maxwell said have been "trying to get her to pledge a vote against Bush's supplemental to the budget." Murray voted against the initial war authorization resolution but that has lost some currency with anti-war forces.
and goes on to say
Shue says it's Murray as seen through "bi-coastal lenses." And where does he fall on the question?

I completely agree that Murray has been totally ineffective in helping to stop the occupation in Iraq. Since her vote against the IWR she has done a pretty good job of playing duck and cover over the entire Iraq issue except where she can shield herself behind the veterans.
another local liberal added:
The people chose you due to your opposition to Bush's policy in Iraq, but it appears that you are marching with him to the same abyss.
Oh wait... my bad... that was not a Seattle liberal complaining about Senator Murray, that was al Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri complaining about the Democrat controlled Congress. Sometimes it is hard to differentiate between the two.
