Republican Congressional Support for Bush is Shaky

Yahoo News story:

The House Republican leader said Sunday that GOP support could waver if President Bush's Iraq war policy does not succeed by the fall.

But first, the president's troop increase deserves a shot, Minority Leader John Boehner said.

"We don't even have all of the 30,000 additional troops in Iraq yet, so we're supporting the president. We want this plan to have a chance of succeeding," said Boehner, R-Ohio.

Bush is becoming more of an albatross every day. When the hardcore start to waiver, clearly the more moderate are already gone.

With the Bush approval numbers hitting a new chilly low of just 28% in a new NEWSWEEK poll, any Republican member of Congress who wants to be relected in 2008 should seriously consider putting some distance between them and Bush. Being seen as too close is simply the kiss of death with these low poll numbers.
