Democrats lack the numbers to stop Bush

Dems lack the numbers to stop Bush

President Bush's announcement that he is sending more troops to Iraq sets up the first major test of wills between his Republican administration and the new Democratic-controlled Congress. Both sides are digging in. The political stakes raised by Bush's prime-time television address were high on both sides. Democrats, who came to power in midterm elections two months ago in large part because of growing public opposition to the war, must walk a fine line between criticizing Bush's plans and appearing to be obstructionists or undermining the military. And they presently rule Congress with insufficient numbers to block Bush's plan.

PBA,
That commentary can't be totally correct, or it is totally correct in saying the Democrats lack the numbers to stop Bush, BUT, Republicans and Democrats together DO.

Democratic Partisanship will undermine the goal of stopping Bush. Yesterday, in his speech the President made an heroic effort to drive the partisan wedge back into Congress, we will have to wait till the polling results are in to know if he succeeded.

The First Casualty of war is the Truth.

hELp, BRAIN IS OVERLOADED, BLUE SCREEN ALERT.

anyway, this says what I mean, accurately and clearly.
The day after President Bush announced his shift in strategy in Iraq, the plan has come under fire by both Democrats and Republicans. During a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel told Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice the president's plan was "the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since Vietnam if it's carried out."
Together, and in a bi partisan spirit, Democrats and Republicans together WILL stop this madness, but only if we stay behind ENDING THIS CRIME SPREE.
