Republicans Increasingly Critical of Bush

My Way News - Republicans Increasingly Critical of Bush:
The rising GOP angst stems from Bush's deep slump in the polls and the growing unpopularity of the Iraq war.

But it also reflects a political reawakening as Republicans follow their own political interests in this midterm election year and as would-be 2008 presidential contenders seek ways to set themselves apart - from each other and from Bush.

'It's open season on him. George Bush has lost trust on too many issues,' said presidential historian Thomas E. Cronin of Colorado College. 'We saw it happen with Johnson, we saw it with Nixon. And now, sadly, we're seeing it with Bush.'
What's that line about rats leaving a sinking ship? Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of folks. Let's hope the strategy doesn't work for them, and people remember what they did over the last five years.
