IraqPundit is seeing the signs.
I’ve talked with this aunt frequently, and while she’s always tried to sound as if she and her husband will be just fine, this recent call was different. This time, she had palpable optimism in her voice. For the first time in a long, long time, she told me, she and the people around her feel that things might turn out okay after all.
And more caches of weapons are found. And when I say more, I mean 10 times more this week.
All of this improvement has slowed down the house’s bandwagon as it goes forward resolving to give President Bush a poke in the eye. Oddly enough the house was surprised that the nonbinding resolution telling Bush that he’s not supported did not force him to play by their rules and take his military forces and come home out of Iraq. It sounds like they really thought it was going to work. But no worries. They’re going to try a new resolution.
Senior House Democrats, seeking to placate members of their party from Republican-leaning districts, are pushing a plan that would place restrictions on President Bush’s ability to wage the war in Iraq but would allow him to waive them if he publicly justifies his position.
It sounds like they seriously think Bush is embarrased by his position in such a way that he’s not willing to say “this is my position and these are my justifications for thinking this way?”. ROFL People don’t listen do they?
