    Im just wondering why the entire republican party has not broken from Bush's Policy yet. Do they see progress or something? I guess its just the deep pockets of the white house, keeping every republican on payroll.

    I don't think the White House's pockets are very deep. On the other hand, I do think there is worry that slapping them the way they deserve will cost the GOP in the next cycle.

    I disagree, we need to cut the White House off quicker than they are us.

    At this point, I think the white house should be re-located to the moon. Thats how far off they are with the rest of congress and the American People.

    I thought the point of winning the white house was to follow the agenda of your party, and get stuff passed. When you cant even agree with your own party, or any party for that matter.....there is really no need for the executive branch, because nothing gets done.

    Disagree for the most part. This administration is problematic. Major undeclared war, undeclared by their choice. Then there is the whole problem of Geneva Conventions, which in a declared war, would not be an issue.

    So I hope you get it, one can support the missions while not the CIC.
