This could backfire against the Dems and the RINOs in a major way. If enough get cold feet and vote to nix the idea and raffirm the war, it could dampen this anti-war politickin' and bloviatin' thats been going on.

I wonder whose brain child this was, Hastert of Delay. Very few GOPers out there are showing and guts. Very refreshing.

Hugh Hewitt called it yesterday, bring it to a vote.
The Repubs in DC must have been listening to his broadcast, as of late I don't think their is anyone on our side smart enough to have thought of it.

House GOP Seeks Quick Vote on Iraq Pullout

By LIZ SIDOTI, Associated Press Writer
Friday, November 18, 2005

11-18) 11:46 PST WASHINGTON, (AP) --

House Republicans sought a showdown Friday with Democrats on a proposal by one of their most senior members to force an end to the U.S. deployment of troops in Iraq.

Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., offered the resolution demanding a pullout. The GOP-run House was expected to reject it — and make a prominent statement about where Congress stands on Iraq — as the chamber scurried toward a Thanksgiving break.

"We'll let the members debate it and then let them vote on it," said Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., the acting majority leader.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's office had no immediate comment.

Great! Then we can get a list of those who vote to end the war now and send them white flags. We should also follow them around Washington and their home territory waiving the white flag and singing the Marsellese (sp?)

Kucinich: Momentum In Congress Begins To Shift on Iraq; Discharge Petition Started On Homeward Bound Act

20 Members Of Congress Show Up At Roll Out Of Discharge Petition Of Bipartisan Bill Authored By Reps. Abercrombie (D-HI), Kucinich (D-OH), Jones (R-NC) and Paul (R-TX) To End War In Iraq


Washington, Nov 16 -


Following yesterday’s bipartisan no confidence vote in the Senate on President Bush’s Iraq policy, today, twenty Members of Congress held a press conference to announce the start of a discharge petition on bipartisan legislation authored by Congressman Neil Abercrombie (D-HI), Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Congressman Walter Jones (R-NC) and Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) to end the war in Iraq.

The discharge petition, a parliamentary tactic used to bring legislation directly to the House floor, was filed today on House Joint Resolution 55, The Homeward Bound Act, a bipartisan bill that sets a start date for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

Kucinich, one of the authors of H. J. Res. 55, issued the following statement today:

“The momentum in Congress has shifted. With this discharge petition we are saying enough. Enough of the misleading statements, changing rational, smear tactics and disinformation from this Administration. Enough of a failed policy that has cost the lives of over 2,000 American troops. And, enough of a Congress that has shunned its Constitutional duty to hold this Administration responsible and accountable for their failed war and occupation.

“This Congress needs to give America a honorable discharge from Iraq. H. J. Res. 55, and this discharge petition, is the beginning of the end of the war in Iraq. Two-thirds of current House Democrats and half of the current Senate Democrats voted against this war.

“The President cannot claim he was misled as he continues to mislead. The war will end and we will bring our troops home; that much is inevitable. What must be decided is timing and terms. Proponents of the Iraq occupation believe that with more time, troops, appropriations and cost in life, the insurgency will be eliminated. But there are no signs of this happening. All signs point to the opposite. Things are getting worse in Iraq and the mere presence of the United States is causing this to happen.

“H. J. Res. 55 is the only bipartisan bill in the House to end the war in Iraq. It is time for Congress to stand with the American public and demand an end to the war.”

The discharge petition filed today requires the signature of 218 Members of Congress, a majority, in order for the bill to be brought to the House floor for consideration.

I get the feeling the Republican Senators that voted yes didn't understand how that monstrosity would be perceived. Now the lower House can come out smelling like a rose by urging victory - the Senators can rally around and save face.
