The US House Of Representative's votes to support Bush's resolution on Iraq!

The US House Of Representatives has voted 296 to 133 to support the Presidents resolution in regards to military action against Iraq. Of the 296 that voted for the resolution, 215 were Republicans and 81 were Democrats. Of the 133 that voted against, 126 were Democrat, 6 were Republican and 1 was an independent.

D'oh!


Not a big shocker or anything, but still a disappointment.

I must confess I am SHOCKED.

This is not what I would call a partisan vote on the for it side.

I really thought this vote would go along party lines.


Did Daschell change his tune?

Dread,

It was the House. Senate has not voted, yet. I think Tom Daschle has said he expects to support it in the end.

A majority of Democrats voted against the resolution even though their House leader, Dick Gephardt, was one of its authors.

Despite efforts by party leaders to defuse Iraq as a political issue four weeks before the election, 126 of the House's 208 Democrats voted against it.

The Senate will pass it with probably a 65-70 vote, but not a majority of the 49 Democrats.

Democrats voting in favor had to consider the pending election and the impact of a "No" vote in their districts.

Daschell still has plenty of airtime opportunity on this one.

Although it was not a majority, 40% of Democrats did vote for the resolution.

Another interesting point is that this resolution passed in the House of Representatives by a much greater margin than Bush Sr. resolutions in regards to removing Iraq from Kuwait with military force back in 1990/1991.

Ouch...now I am kicking myself. I somehow mixed up Daschel and equated him with the house. Brain Cramps. I have had a migrane for the past four days. Thanks for setting me straight.

The US Senate has just voted to support Bush's resolution on military action against Iraq! The Vote was 77 to 23!

Deep,

It will be to your surprise that a majority of Democrats voted to support Bush's resolution on military action against Iraq.

The American people through their elected representitives have now spoken and demand that Saddam Hussein be disarmed, with force if necessary. The President has the support of the country for his policy.

Where did you get that info (about the Senate vote)? I haven't heard that, plus it's in the middle of the night...seems a bit preliminary to me...

LOL...funny, I didn't ever get to talk to my elected representative to voice my concern over this "war"...I seriously doubt that if the actual public voted, the support would be that overwhelming. It's virtual representation...they're voting for what they feel is best for the country as a whole...not by what their represented district/state says.

A person can be right most of the time.

But, when your wrong, it really cost ya.

I'm not shocked at all. The general political climate was in support of military action in the war on terrorism. Most protest against the war on terrorism comes from the far left, which is outside of the Democratic Party.
