Blunt: Bush critics 'don't want to do what it takes to win'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Speaking in support of a House bill proposing to prohibit Congress from cutting off funding for the Iraq war, Minority Whip Roy Blunt said Thursday critics of President Bush's plan to increase troop levels in Iraq "don't want to do what it takes to win."

"Those who are not supporting the president's current effort really have an obligation, in my view, to come up with their own plan and we're not hearing that," the Missouri Republican told reporters at a GOP press conference. "We're seeing politicians in Washington who really want to have it both ways, they don't want to support the current plan, but they don't have a plan of their own."

"They don't want to lose, but they don't want to do what it takes to win," he added
