They're Not Trying To Stop The War


In response to stuff like this - Republican Hypocrite Caucus Keeps George Bush's War Going - the Republican doubters of the war aren't trying to change policy. They're testing the waters in terms of how voters will react to a change of policy, and providing a foundation for a potential shift of policy in the event that's what it will take to avoid (or minimize) the loss of additional seats in Congress in the next election. Call them hypocrites if you want, but recognize that they have very different goals than you do.

  1. I tend to be very cautious or pessimistic in election forecasting. Still, the way things are going, the Republicans may be next to irrelevant in the 2008 election.
