Little help please...

Something’s been bothering me… maybe all of you could help me out…

Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN), the outgoing chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, told Fox “News” host Chris Wallace that Dubya needs to make sure he has congressional support before he even announces a plan for escalatiing troops in Iraq.

If Bush chooses to ignore Congress, Lugar said he should expect “a lot of hearings, a lot of study, a lot of criticism,” along with “demands for subpoenas.”

Center for American Progress Senior Fellow Larry Korb, a former U.S. assistant secretary of defense under President Reagan, stated last week that “Congress should intervene to block another troop surge” unless the administration can “adequately” explain why it’s necessary.

Here we have two conservative republicans asking why an escalation is necessary… yet Bush is doing what he’s always done… ignoring others.

My question is this: What will it take for the failure of Iraq and the decline of his inner-party support to get through that thick head of his????
