Hypocrisy has many names - this times it is Walter Jones

In a report put out by STEVE HARTSOE, Associated Press Writer Support Said Growing for Iraq Exit Plan states:

RALEIGH, N.C. - Congressman Walter Jones said Thursday he has about 50 co-sponsors on a joint resolution that calls on President Bush to announce by year's end a plan for withdrawal from Iraq.

The resolution — introduced in June by Jones, another Republican and two Democrats — calls on the president to begin executing the withdrawal by Oct. 1, 2006. It does not set an end date.

"I think that people have finally understood what we're doing," Jones said after a meeting at the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, noting that people have mistakenly thought the resolution was binding.

It is obvious that this is a ploy to get a re-election strategy into place now that support for the war is tanking.

Any Democrat who trusts any Republican in joining this resolution is a bigger fool that I think!!

The only resolution that would make sense is one put forward by Republicans which is for IMMEDIATE UNCONDITIONAL WITHDRAWAL.

You think any Republican is going to sign up for that? Think again.
