    Given that Chimpy has ignored every bit of advice on the matter of Iraq from the Iraq Study Groups, to the JCS, to commanders in the field, to the American people, what is there to support? With the number of people who actually support the administration in this disasterous foreign adventurism approaching the level of an endagered species, it's long past time for Chimpy to stop worrying about his legacy and start worrying about the US troops he wants to throw into the meat-grinder...Start worrying about the countless thousands of innocent Iraqis who have died, and continue to die, in Iraq since the invasion. A number which far exceeds that of people Saddam killed and buried in mass graves.

    So you find comfort in the Senate also doing the same? In spite of the generals? Ok, that's great Bully:

    What are you talking about? the addition troops idea came from the Baker report, (atleast i think thats the one, there are so many). Democrats have been calling for months for the President to implement those finding. We have statements from Nancy Pelosi and other prominent Democrats calling for an increase of troops and then the second the President said he increase the troops they made a 180 degree about face. They were interviewing a general the other day in their decision to make this stupid resolution, and he specifically told them they needed the troops and this resolution would only help the enemy did they listen? Of course not.

    It be nice if the Democrats would let the generals fight to win instead of trying to tell them how to do their jobs with unnecessary reports they make.

    I dont think the President is worried much about his legacy other than making sure he doesnt leave this nation unsafe. It be nice if Democrat politicians began thinking of their legacy. But then you cant really focus on the long term implications of what you do if you do everything by push polls.
