Biden's Plan for Iraq passes Congress today and now heads on over to Bush.
haha - I wonder what Bush will do with it :eyes:

Anyway - that is great news for Biden :)

By promoting federalism, the resolution supports the creation of strong regions under a limited central government. It also calls for more international involvement in helping Iraqis reach an agreement on a comprehensive political settlement.

Its time for this president to listen, Biden said in a statement. We now have both sides of the aisle, both sides of the U.S. Capitol, saying to the president: abandon this flawed strategy of yours and change course.

:toast:

1. I'm so happy to see some MOVEMENT with this. Iraq has dropped off the radar -
I pray this will get it back to the top priority, and begin implementing Biden's plan to give this option a fair chance. :toast:

4. Oh Bush is not a happy camper these days
Time for a little drink-poo or two, I would think. "Who the hell does Biden think he is?"

5. Biden has always been right about this.
Iraq should be a federation. Biden was the first to recognize this, and has always been very adamant about it. I really admire Joe. Always have.

As someone else said, Bush will probably ignore the resolution because it's non-binding (and because it's Biden's plan).

Cheers for Joe Biden! :toast:

6. Like I've Said...
Biden acts more like a President than a candidate.

7. Here it is, Bushie boy. It's your best out if you want to take it.
If you sign, it's a plan that everybody could take credit for.

It's yours on a silver platter if you want it.

Nah, didn't think so. Good luck with that surge of yours.

8. IT'S ABOUT TIME. And it is really Bush's best option.
Biden is so smart and was the first ot see this as the way forward.
