Duncan Wasn't Always Reliable Vote for 'W.'

Speaking at a fund-raiser in the Sunsphere Monday night for the Blount County Young Republicans, Andrew Card, former chief of staff for President George W. Bush, paid a compliment to Congressman Jimmy Duncan. Card noted that while it is hard for any president to always get his way with Congress, Duncan had been a reliable vote for Bush initiatives. Duncan wasn’t there, but his chief of staff, Bob Griffitts, nodded appreciatively. What neither said—but neither, presumably, has forgotten—is that Duncan was one of just six Republicans in the House to vote against what was arguably Bush’s signature executive decision: the invasion of Iraq.
