Republicans Revolt Against President Bush

Try as they might, the Democrats are not going to get George Bush change his strategy in Iraq by themselves.  They need Republicans in the House and Senate to come to their side and challenge this president.  Well, it looks like the GOP is finally coming around.  A significant number of Republicans have come out against the so-called "troop surge" and are demanding the president stop placing more American soldiers in harm's way.

 

 A bipartisan, non-binding, resolution on Iraq was introduced by Joseph Biden (D-DE) and Chuck Hagel (R-NE) that sharply criticizes the White House's actions.  There are a number of Republicans that are expected to join the Democrats in this repudiation of the president.  Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) has already announced she will support the measure and Senators Gordon Smith (R-OR), Norm Coleman (R-MN), George Voinovich (R), Sam Brownback, (R), and Lisa Murkowski (R) all oppose the troop surge.

 

There are many other Republicans that are opposed to the troop surge and to Bush's overall strategy, but they are afraid to express an opinion that runs counter to their Republican president, dumb as he may be.  Many do not want to sign on with Democrats simply because they are Democrats.  Heaven forbid they put the lives of American soldiers ahead of politics.

 

It remains to be seen if Congress can stop Bush from implementing this surge.  A large number of Republicans must join forces with the Dems or this president will continue to get Americans killed.
