Since stalwarts like John Murtha and other Democrats who argue that the war is not a success and want our troops to come home are labelled as "Defeatocrats" and other nonsensical slurs...what are the folks at National Review and redstate.org going to call people like Dick Lugar and George Voinovich?
"We must not abandon our mission, but we must begin a transition where the Iraqi government and its neighbors play a larger role in stabilizing Iraq," Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, wrote in a letter to Bush.
Voinovich, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released his letter Tuesday — one day after Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana, the panel's top Republican, said in a floor speech that Bush's strategy was not working.
"The longer we delay the planning for a redeployment, the less likely it is to be successful," said Lugar, who plans to meet later this week with Stephen Hadley, Bush's national security adviser.
Since these are respected senior members of the GOP, unless the others have their heads in the sand next to GWB and Dick Cheney, they have to listen.
Of course not. But it will be fun to watch them squirm and get all scrunchy about this.
