Rally for Rummy

Two informal public opinion surveys last week showed an overwhelming majority of Americans want Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to resign. In fact, both polls — one by Newsweek (68,000 votes) and the other by CNN (116,000 votes) — revealed that eight in 10 respondents want Rummy gone. But where it counts — in the White House and on Capitol Hill — Rumsfeld got ringing endorsements from President Bush and Republicans in Congress (with the exception of Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel).

During a call with bloggers, including HUMAN EVENTS Online Editor Robert Bluey, two Republicans — Representatives Mike Conaway (Tex.) and Joe Wilson (S.C.) — chalked up the attacks on Rumsfeld to politics. "I just really appreciate the steadfastness of Secretary Rumsfeld," Wilson said.
