"Key vote on the Iraq war keeps House GOP united"


thehill.com

Reps. Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.) and John Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) were the only new defectors though Duncan voted against the 2002 war authorization measure. The other two GOP members to vote with Democrats were Reps. Walter Jones (N.C.) and Wayne Gilchrest (Md.), who have consistently broken with their party on Iraq this year.

Ten Democrats, mostly conservatives, voted against the measure, which passed 223-201.

So Pelosi is playing the 'I'm not supporting Bushie card' while at the same time acting as his lapdog.

What's really going on in Congress?

In a related note, Congress' approval rating is lower than the President's.

Probably because the democrats have failed to act like they said they would...End this war. Riiight.

So with this bill, we would have left troops to fight Al Qaeda anyway...

This isn't a withdraw bill, its a half-assed version of a withdraw bill.

Get all of our troops home now you cowards!



Or we can start sending Congressmen to Iraq, I have no problem with that.

Then they can see what its like to get shot at on a daily basis.

Voters unhappy with Bush, Congress



Most U.S. voters think the country is on the wrong track and remain deeply unhappy with President George W. Bush and Congress, but still feel good about their finances and optimistic about the future, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

Eighteen months before Bush leaves the White House, nearly two-thirds of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction and give the president negative marks for his job performance.

An even bigger majority, 83 percent, say the Democratic-controlled Congress is doing only a fair or poor job -- the worst mark for Congress in a Zogby poll.

But despite their dim views of government, majorities of Americans remain upbeat about their personal finances and security, and nearly two-thirds are very or fairly confident their children will have a better life than they do.



So basically the American public is ready for our whole government to leave office, democrats and republicans alike.

The Democrats are wimps, the Republicans are fearmongers. Sounds pretty accurate.
