Bush Enablers in The Senate Plan To Halt Iraq Vote

Seems they want to protect the preznit from embarrassment.

God forbid that Bush should feel the pangs of embarrassment.

After all, he has only been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and even more, who are maimed for life.

Senate Allies of Bush Work to Halt Iraq Vote - New York Times:

With the Senate expected to reach votes on possible resolutions sometime next week, the signs of the new campaign seeped out after a weekly closed-door lunch in which Republican senators engaged in what participants described as a heated debate over how to approach the issue.

The new effort by President Bush’s allies, including Senators John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, is aimed at blocking two non-binding resolutions directly critical of the White House that had appeared to be gaining broad support among Democrats and even some Republicans.

Republicans skeptical of the troop buildup said some of their colleagues had begun to suggest that opponents of the White House plan ran the risk of undermining Lt. Gen. David H. Petraeus, the new military commander in Iraq, as well as Mr. Bush.
