Republicans Discover "Bi-Partisanship" on Iraq
This is a story from the AP about how six so-called Republican "moderates" and five Democratic "moderates" want a bi-partisan solution to Iraq. The story was posted during the evening of September 4, 2007. We can see why Republicans want a bi-partisan solution to Iraq because they are in danger of taking even further losses next year in both the House and the Senate. We can even see why Democrats from "swing" districts are interested in such an approach. The problem, though, is that Bush isn't interested in such an approach, as this story, also from the AP, shows. He is determined to keep as many troops in Iraq until the end of his term as he can and if he ends up destroying the chances of Republicans to retake either House of Congress, that is just too bad.
