Another Republican Senator Breaks with Bush on Iraq

Bush is running out of supporters in the Congress. Do you get the feeling Bush doesn't care what anyone thinks:
President George W Bush's Iraq war policy continued to haemorrhage support in the US Senate as another senior Republican called on Thursday for a new strategy that would start to bring troops home.

A day after Bush appealed to Americans to be more patient with the unpopular war, six-term New Mexico Senator Pete Domenici, who is up for re-election next year, urged a new course.

"I am unwilling to continue our current strategy," Domenici, who serves on the Senate's defence appropriations subcommittee, said in a statement.

"I do not support an immediate withdrawal from Iraq or a reduction in funding for our troops. But I do support a new strategy that will move our troops out of combat operations and on the path to coming home," Domenici said.
