Read my lips -- "We're staying until the job is done."

Um, think they got the message? I sure hope so, for their sake.

President Bush shocked Capitol Hill staffers and Republican leaders Monday when he crashed a meeting at the White House to deliver a blunt message that he wasn’t backing down on Iraq and Republicans need to understand that.

“It was stunning,” said one GOP aide who attended the meeting. “We couldn’t believe he came in.”
“We kept looking at each other, amazed he came in,” said another Republican aide.

Bush was described as folksy, adamant and mildly profane as he interrupted the meeting between senior White House communications staffers Tony Snow and Ed Gillespie and GOP leaders. His message: the policy on Iraq isn’t changing. He is not backing down and no one on Capitol Hill should be confused into thinking he is letting up.

The interruption precedes what is expected to be an all-nighter in the Senate on Tuesday, ordered by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as a way to protest GOP blocking tactics on moves to compel U.S. troop withdrawals from Iraq…

I hope the GOP got this message. They ought to consider his opinion before embarking down this road because I can guarantee people that they don't want our opinions on this matter. If they thought we were loud over shamnesty, they ain't seen nothing yet. Before this is all said and done, it could get ugly. That's the last warning Congress will get. From this point on, the battle lines are drawn.
