Novak: Powell ‘caustic’ over escalation plans.
Certain Republican Senators are becoming alarmed that the Dry (?) Drunk in the White House won't even listen to them; won't take their phone calls.
We are in deep doo-doo, as Poppy would say..........
The GOP are trying to save their party again, but this president is not Dick Nixon.
You guys need to be paying attention to people like John Dean, whom Lindsay Graham vilified in a Senate Hearing.
Graham has been oddly absent, lately...eh?
Think Progress Â» Novak: Powell ÂcausticÂ over escalation plans.:
Robert Novak writes, Former Secretary of State, Colin Powell is caustic in private about the proposed "surge" of 30,000 additional U.S. troops. Powell noted that the recent congressional delegation to Iraq headed by Sen. John McCain heard from combat officers that they wanted more troops. "The colonels will always say they need more troops," the retired general says. "That's why we have generals." Novak adds, Senior Republican senators are trying to get word to the president that any troop surge would be dead on arrival in Congress.
