Bipartisan Opposition to War Increasing
Maybe Bush is a uniter after all. Earlier this week we had both a Democratic Senator (Feingold) and a Republican Senator (Hagel) call for a plan to withdraw from Iraq. Now it looks like we may have a bipartisan resolution in the House calling for withdrawal. Republican Congressman Walter Jones has about fifty co-sponsors on a joint resolution that calls on President Bush to announce by year’s end a plan for withdrawal from Iraq. Sponsors include Dennis Kucinich.
Jones cited the absense of WMD in Iraq as a reason for supporting withdrawal. Jones initially bought the Bush Administration line, and even coined the word “Freedom Fries.” He now has found that the French were right and Bush was wrong. “”If I had known then what I know now, I wouldn’t have supported the resolution,” said Jones.
