    Well it is good to see some of the repubs coming around to reality. Yet, like so many times before, it is all about themselves when they arrive at a conclusion such as this one.

    Republican lawmakers losing positive tone on course of war
    Jonathan Weisman, Anushka Asthana, Washington Post

    Saturday, July 22, 2006

    (07-22) 04:00 PDT Washington -- Faced with almost daily reports of sectarian carnage, Republicans are shifting their message on the war in Iraq from optimistic talk of progress to acknowledging serious problems and pointing up mistakes in planning and execution.

    Rep. Gil Gutknecht, R-Minn., once a strong supporter of the war, returned from Iraq this week declaring that conditions in Baghdad were far worse "than we'd been led to believe," and urging that troop withdrawals begin immediately.

    Other Republican lawmakers acknowledge that it is no longer tenable to say the news media is ignoring the good news in Iraq and painting an unfair picture of the war. About 4,338 Iraqi civilians died violent deaths during the first six months of 2006, according to a new report by the U.N. Assistance Mission for Iraq. Last month alone, 3,149 civilians were killed -- an average of more than 100 a day.

    "It's like after (Hurricane) Katrina, when the secretary of Homeland Security was saying all those people weren't really stranded (at the New Orleans civic center) when we were all watching it on TV," said Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C. "I still hear about that. We can't look like we won't face reality."

    Guess all those good news reports must be next to the massive stockpile of WMDs.

    Here is the guy running against ole Gil. Please, take the time and listen to his response to Gil.
