House Iraq Resolution
Over the next few days, the House will be weighing in on a resolution condemning Bush's urge to surge. The resolution reads:
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That—
(1) Congress and the American people will continue to support and protect the members of the United States Armed Forces who are serving or who have served bravely and honorably in Iraq; and
(2) Congress disapproves of the decision of President George W. Bush announced on January 10, 2007, to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq.
Every Member of Congress is going to be allowed 5 minutes to speak, so we will actually get a chance to hear what Jim Walsh really thinks in more than a poorly worded press release. However this resolution is much less specific the Warner Resolution in the Senate that Walsh endorsed, perhaps giving him the opportunity to back out of opposition and instead support the Bush urge to surge.
Dan Maffei weighs in on his blog, calling for a binding resolution on the matter.
