Will the Yellow Elephants Support President Bush?
Here's what they say in Iowa:
Adam Kaduce (above), 19, a Drake University sophomore and co-president of the College Republicans, said he felt optimistic after watching Bush's speech, adding that his confidence in the president has never wavered.
"Hopefully, this is the beginning of a new day in Iraq and this is the beginning of success and the ability to bring our troops home," Kaduce said. "It is still a winnable situation, and I have confidence that he can pull off a victory in Iraq."
Adam, the real question is, what are you doing to help him succeed?
And here's what they're saying in Northwestern Wisconsin:
Nate Nelson, a member of the College Republicans at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh (UWOSH.edu), said he is unsure if sending more troops is the answer.
"Our strategy has been flawed and I'm glad to see that our president is doing something different in that respect," Nelson said.
OK, Nate, are you doing something different in that respect? Like,
Be A Man! Enlist!?
OT, something the Washington crowd has missed completely:
Tom Hallquist, 52, said the president's recommendation is too little too late.
"The president should be using U.S. war army colleges, not conservative think tanks," Hallquist said.
