What do the majority of Republican voters want?

Taken for what polls are worth, it's not even close:

Given that the majority of Republicans approved of President Bush's speech, do you think they'd really approve of Republican leaders who are supporting Biden's nonbinding resolution, which clearly stands as a statement against President Bush? And how can such a resolution be perceived as being supportive of the troops?

There's something wrong with that first table and I can't even find it on the CBS PDF link.

Look at the Democrat approve/disapprove numbers.

Wow!! It's amazing when you see the numbers in that context. Yet another reason for Republican senators not to weenie out.

Cheney's response to Hagel:

"Let's say I believe firmly in Ronald Reagan's 11th commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican," Cheney said. "But it's very hard sometimes to adhere to that where Chuck Hagel is involved."

Wow! Those poll numbers give me faith in the Republican party.

WTH? Cornyn is caught up in this crap too? He is getting a phone call from me tomorrow. No freaking way is any Texas Senator going to sign off on this pile of crap.

But you gotta love Cheney. He isn't running for anything, so he can say whatever the heck he wants to say. It is a breath of fresh air.

Looking at the pdf file myself, it looks to be a typo. It should read 82% Democrats disapprove....not 12%. I'll pop an email to Mr. Hewitt.

simply kimberly,

I love Cheney's laconic, deadpan statements:

In the interview, Cheney also said he doesn't spend any time worrying about how the public or the media view him. When pressed to react to personal criticism from people with whom he has worked before, Cheney said: "Well, I'm vice president and they're not."

Thanks for all the links Wordsmith. What a lot of work you put into this post!

Looks as though I've got some e-mailing to do, once I get my e-mail working right, that is.

Iran is weakening, we need to keep the pressure on Iran, not have elected officials draw lines in the sand that empower Iran.

Finally, Finally!

I was able to sign the Pledge.

Don't know about the rest of you, but I had a hell of time accessing the pledge website.

Did anyone send a copy of those poll results (for what they are worth) the Republican Senators?

Hewitt had on Republican leader John Boehner on Monday's program; and I loved his statement to Dean Barnett when they were talking about the interview, that "sometimes you're going to have to take stands that may in fact, lose you your job." And Dean's agreement saying "If they could have the realization that we have 2 years to win the war; maybe we'll have more, but we'll definitely have those two years and history will thank them as opposed to the electorate in 2008. History thanking them should be their priority."

Dean Barnett's great post, in answer to the charge that perhaps some Republican leaders, in fact, are in good conscience, opposed to the surge. Quoting Paul at Powerline saying, "Thus, the law of averages tells us that, political calculation aside, there will be more than a few Republican Senators who have that belief.”

Barnett points out, however:

As of this afternoon, the Warner Resolution has five supporters. They are, John Warner, Susan Collins, Gordon Smith, Norm Coleman and Chuck Hagel.

And he reminds us,

All five of these Senators, these self-proclaimed prisoners of conscience, are up for reelection in ’08. What does the law of averages have to say about that?

skye, I think bombarding them with this information certainly can't hurt; throw enough things their way, maybe something will stick.

I got to listen to the first 30 minutes of Hewitt's interview with Boehner, yesterday. Do take the time to listen to it.

And read Boehner mania.

Hagel was twice wounded as an NCO in Viet Nam. Coleman was suspended from college for protesting that war. Now they are in agreement about our Iraq policy. Politics makes strange bedfellows...

Yes, and Jim Webb once wrote this and served under Reagan. And now he stands on the other side of the fence.
