The GOP surges against Bush

Well, at least one surge is succeeding. The GOP is surging towards a mutiny with the ranking Republican on the chamber's Foreign Relations Committee, Richard Lugar recently announcing that he believes Bush's time is running out re the Iraqi surge.

Not to mention what happened today in the failure of the Immigration bill.

"Whether or not the White House is listening, Senator Lugar's statement is already sending shock waves through Capitol Hill," noted Jim Cason, an analyst at the Friends Committee on National Legislation, an anti-war lobby. "His statement creates political space for other Republicans to come out more publicly calling for a change in policy in Iraq based on the ISG's recommendations."
