Colorado Lawmakers React to Bush Iraq Plan

By  | 

Colorado lawmakers in Washington are reacting to President Bush's call last night for 21,000 additional troops in Iraq, and not all Republicans are on board with the plan.
Republican U-S Representative Tom Tancredo says he stands behind the president's goal of a peaceful, democratic Iraq. But he does not believe more troops is the answer.
Tancredo says he is not convinced adding more troops will help win the global war against what he calls "Radical Islam."
Republican Colorado U-S Senator Wayne Allard says he supports the president. GOP Representative Marilyn Musgrave says she will support the president in the short term but needs to see progress in the coming year.
Democratic Senator Ken Salazar says he is skeptical, and Democratic Representative Mark Udall says the president is on the wrong track.
