WASHINGTON - President Bush's plan to send more troops to Iraq ran into a wall of criticism on Capitol Hill on Thursday as administration officials drew confrontational, sometimes mocking challenges from both Democrats and Republicans.


All is not well on capital hill. Republicans also oppose the increasing troop numbers, a surefire sign that SOMETHING will be done against it by congress. As to what powers they have I am unsure. However it disheartens me to see Mr. Bush, regardless of how bad of a president he has been in some people's eyes, being mocked by lawmakers on capital hill. No person, let alone president, should have to face that.

Bush being the Commander-in-Chief, Congress has no say about a troop increase, it only is needed to declare war.
Its primarily the centrist republicans, many of the VERY conservative republicans much like JOhn McCain support the increase....god i hope he he makes president in 2008, good thing i get a say in it finally (yay for the voting process!)

finally some republicans are starting to get fed up with this war i hope they can pass some type of measure to block a troop increase and by bush trying to add more troops he just makes him self more unpopular with most americans

Like Vox said, Congress cannot pass anything to stop Bush , the commander and chief of the army, from moving the army anywhere. Plus, Bush is a lame duck, it does not matter how people feel about him.

Let me ask you though. Who would you rather be there (as president)? Bush is standing up for what he beleives in and he is the only one. I thought Isa, Nemo, anf FacistFool admired that? He is the best person for the job right now to ensure American safety.

I'm confused, why would you bring my name into it? I didn't even post here yet, it seems irrelevant.

Because under a different topic you, FacistFool, and Is Fusa were all admiring each other for standing up for something no one else beleives in yet some times, especiallu Is Fusa, bashes him for standing up for what he beleives. Now where is the logic in that?
