George Voinovich, still classy after all these years

From CNN via Think Progress:

Last week, in a conversation with senior White House political aide Karl Rove, Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH) warned that conservative support is quickly eroding for the war, and to stem the tide, Bush must institute a plan that begins the withdrawal of U.S. troops. Voinovich told Rove, “The president is a young man and should think about his legacy.”  CNN reports:

Voinovich added that other Republicans are close to speaking out against the President’s current strategy. “I won’t mention anyone’s name. But I have every reason to believe that the fur is going to start to fly, perhaps sooner than what they may have wanted.”

In private, Voinovich is more blunt, using a profanity to describe the White House’s handling of Iraq by charging the administration “f–ed up” the war.

What a great fit Senator Voinovich is in the senatorial "gentlemen's club."

Also: He's warning the White House that conservative support is eroding?  What the heck does Senator Voinovich know about "conservative support?"

Has this turned into a Voinovich hating blog?
