Republicans stand up to Bush, Fossella indifferent

via CNN;

"Sen. John Warner, the former GOP chairman and influential member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is set to introduce a second resolution Monday that expresses criticism of President Bush's call for a troop increase in Iraq, a move Bush Administration officials have scrambled to avoid." (co-sponsored by Sen Collins R-Maine, Nelson D-Nebraska)

via CNN;

"Boehner [Republican Minority Leader] will send a letter to Speaker Pelosi, D-California, suggesting the formation of a new bi-partisan panel devoted exclusively to Iraq oversight, a senior GOP aide tells CNN." edit my own

via CNN;

The Biden-Hagel-Levin resolution says that "U.S. strategy and presence on the ground in Iraq can only be sustained with the support of the American people and bipartisan support from Congress."

During a news conference announcing the resolution, Hagel [R-Nebraska], a Vietnam War veteran who is a leading Republican voice on foreign policy issues, called the president's plan "dangerously irresponsible." edit my own

And then there is Rep. Vito Fossella, who through his indifference continues to support President Bush and his 28% approval rating (1% of that is Vito and his staff);

"On the war in Iraq, Fossella remains loyal to the Bush administration" [NY1]

via My Way, this is in addition to Sen. Hagel (R-Nebraska)

At least eight other Republican senators say they now back legislative proposals registering objections to Bush's decision to boost U.S. military strength in Iraq by 21,500 troops.
