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.
