GOP Ranks United

Despite being allied with an unpopular president in support of an unpopular war, it looks like congressional Republicans will remain unified in the coming stand-off over the supplemental bill.  They are certainly troubled by the negative public opinion and the uncertainty of progress in Iraq, but the Republican Senators and House members I’ve spoken with in the past week are convinced that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have overplayed their hands.  Some are looking forward to Nancy Pelosi’s overture to them when, after a veto, she is unable to pass a modified supplemental bill without GOP votes.  Could it be that the armchair generals leading the Democratic forces went to war with the White House without an exit strategy?
