Some Question Whether GOP Plan For Iraq Is Enough

WASHINGTON As President Bush continues his media blitz on Iraq, speaking again Monday on the global War on Terror, congressional Republicans are letting the president do the talking rather than trying to come up with a GOP message ahead of the midterm election in November.

"It's really up to particular candidates in the states, but I think in large part, most Republican (senators) up in this cycle, are very supportive of the war it's not as though they arent asking the important questions and how long this is going to take," said Brian Nick, spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

...

But not everyone thinks that staying the course with the Bush message is enough to assuage the growing wariness voters have with the administration's handling of the war in Iraq so far. In the most recent Gallup poll, 57 percent of respondents said the war was a mistake, and 67 percent said Bush did not have a clear plan for handling the situation there.

...

Chuck Muth, a Republican grassroots activist from Carson City, Nev., and head of Citizen Outreach, said the Republicans "absolutely need a unified message," but doesn't think "they have prayer in getting one," because a growing number of conservatives in the ranks are wary of the war too.

1. Since when did "some" = 65%
"Some" think that the earth is round.

"Some" think that Texas is missing its village idiot.

"Some" think that Faux news is NOT fair and balanced.

2. It does not take any thinking to repeat: Stay the course.
