Joe Will Start to Waver on Iraq

We don't need a crystal ball to devine that Joe Knollenberg will soon be wavering in his support for Iraq.

Never much of a leader or a voice in Congress, Knollenberg easily bends to the will of others -- particularly lobbyists. But in this particular case, nervous about the impact Iraq will have on Republican re-election campaigns, referring to House Minority Leader Johm Boehner, CNN reports "The top House Republican said Sunday that GOP support could waver if President Bush's Iraq war policy does not succeed by the fall."

CNN then attributes the following statements to Boehner:

"Over the course of the next three to four months, we'll have some idea how well the plan's working. Early signs are indicating there is clearly some success on a number of fronts," he said.

But, he added, "By the time we get to September or October, members are going to want to know how well this is working, and if it isn't, what's Plan B."

So, those are the talking points. If Joe even mentions Iraq, those "follow the leader" talking points are sure to be heard.

Joe "Do Nothing" Knollenberg is a follower, not a leader.
