GOP Senators Voinovich and Lugar Urge Iraq Withdrawal

Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN) came out publicly Monday to state that President Bush's Iraq strategy is failing and that the United States needs to pull out.  Senator George Voinovich (R-OH) joined him today in calling for an immediate withdrawal.  In addition, Senator John Warner (R-VA) predicted that a number of Republicans will jump ship after the July 4th holiday.

 

 It should be noted that the only way the U.S. will get out of Iraq is if Republicans in Congress stand up to President Bush.  The Democrats are clearly opposed to the war, but they do not have enough power to stop this war, short of cutting off funding for the troops.  The left needs a lot of the guys on the right to back them up in their push for a withdrawal.  Lugar and Voinovich join a small number of Republicans publicly calling for at least a reduction of troops.

 

Up until now, Republicans have been extremely reluctant to speak out against this White House.  As the 2008 elections near, Republicans who are running will start to abandon ship to save their own hide.  That is what's important to politicians, after all.  They will speak out against the war eventually, not because it is the right thing to do, but because it will help them get re-elected and remain in power.

 

The end game is to get our soldiers back home.  However we get to that result is fine by me, but we need to get there sooner rather than later.  At this point, I don't care if the Republicans' objective is simply to get re-elected, so long as they get out of Iraq beforehand.  If enough Republicans call for a withdrawal, the President will have no choice but to bring our boys home.
