Bush: I Listen to Democrats (Named Lieberman)
By our count, in his address on Iraq last night, President Bush mentioned only one lawmaker by name: Senator Joe Lieberman.
Acting on the good advice of Senator Joe Lieberman and other key members of Congress, we will form a new, bipartisan working group that will help us come together across party lines to win the war on terror. This group will meet regularly with me and my administration; it will help strengthen our relationship with Congress. We can begin by working together to increase the size of the active Army and Marine Corps, so that America has the Armed Forces we need for the 21st century. We also need to examine ways to mobilize talented American civilians to deploy overseas, where they can help build democratic institutions in communities and nations recovering from war and tyranny.
Just curious, does bipartisan in this instance mean Republicans and Democrats, or Republicans and members of Lieberman’s one-man self-described Independent Democrat caucus?
