<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">President Bush asked fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill on Thursday to "keep the faith" as he sought to ease their jitters about Iraq and his lowest approval ratings ever.<br><br>
At a closed-door meeting described by some as a pep rally, Bush vowed to "stay the course" and do what is right for America, prompting lawmakers to shower him with ovations, Republicans said afterward. A top Democrat fired back by calling Bush incompetent.<br><br>
"He asked us to keep the faith," Rep. Deborah Pryce of Ohio, a member of the Republican leadership, said as she emerged from the meeting. "We're all behind him."<br><br>
At a news conference, House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said, "I believe the president's leadership in the actions taken in Iraq demonstrate he is incompetent in terms of knowledge, judgment and experience."</td>

Rich Lowery at the National Review says that "Bush Flopped" in his meeting with Republicans on the Hill. Seems he gave 'em a " pep talk" and then left...didn't stick around, ironically, to answer questions (I theorize he had no script, or else "Uncle Dick" was not there to do the ventriloquist act). The folks were apparently disappointed.<br><br>
Just a blurb but it's here:<br><a href="http://www.nationalreview.com/thecorner/04_05_16_corner-archive.asp#032267" target="_blank">http://www.nationalreview.com/thecor...ive.asp#032267</a><br><br>
