GOP Against American Public On Surge

Pelosi gets a 246-182 vote against the surge, meaning the large majority of the GOP caucus supports the surge against American public opinion. This is truly the GOP's war.

Reid will have the Senate debate it over the weekend, while Lindsey Graham has already said he will do everything in his power to kill the resolution. The Republicans have decided to oppose Murtha’s effort to require that the troops be adequately trained and equipped before they deploy.

Think about that for a second: the GOP is against sending adequately trained, rested, and equipped troops to the war, but instead says the Democrats are the ones not standing behind the troops.
