SIT BACK AND LET GEORGE DRIVE:
Democrats Revise Agenda To Deal With War in Iraq: With Bush to Announce New Plan, Domestic Policy No Longer Primary Focus (Jonathan Weisman, January 8, 2007, Washington Post)
Pushed by House members who want a quick, tough response to the Iraq strategy President Bush is expected to announce this week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has backed off from her initial assertion that nothing should detract attention from the legislation she hopes to pass in the first 100 hours of House debate.
The GOP didn't lose the initiative back to Bill Clinton until Newt & Bob Dole made the disastrous decision to re-open the government. Democrats have lost it the first week. Posted by Orrin Judd at January 8, 2007 1:41 PM
