WASHINGTON — A debate over President Bush's plan to send more troops to Iraq is set to begin in the Senate today, but it's not clear whether there will be a vote.
Republicans are threatening to use the filibuster, a parliamentary blocking maneuver, to prevent a vote on a resolution that expresses disapproval of the troop increase.
It may be the only way for Bush supporters to prevent a bipartisan vote of no confidence after the release of an intelligence report that painted a grim picture of the situation in Iraq.
Bush has ALREADY received a bipartisan vote of no confidence from the American People and it's time the Republicans caught up.
But remember when the Republicans were whining like infants at what "obstructionists" those nasty Democrats were for filibustering about TWICE in six years? When the Republicans held ALL the cards.
What is this for the Republicans? Number THREE in a MONTH? Despite the fact that they actually still have the Presidency?
Stop circling the wagons. Bush isn't worth it.
