Reuters reports that Bush remains steadfast as ever on his Iraq stance. Steve Holland writes: President George W. Bush said on Wednesday "I don't feel abandoned" by fellow Republicans in Congress who are working with Democrats to protest his Iraq policy with a congressional resolution.In a television interview, Bush shrugged off criticism of his plan to send 21,500 more U.S. troops to Iraq and said he hoped lawmakers would give U.S. forces what they needed to get the job done. Some of Bush's Republican allies are breaking with him over Iraq as the war becomes more unpopular and his job approval numbers wane. The Senate is poised to take up a resolution opposing Bush's new strategy with a debate expected next week. Bush told Fox News Channel's Neil Cavuto, the following: "And what do you expect? When times are good, there's millions of authors of the plan. When times are bad, there's one author, and that would be me."
