The House votes to frown sternly at Dubya
House Congressional Resolution 63 has been approved, "Disapproving of the decision of the President announced on January 10, 2007, to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq." The Yeas were 246 and the Nays were 182. 17 Republicans voted with the Democrats, of whom only two opposed the resolution.

The concurrent resolution reads as follows:
Disapproving of the decision of the President announced on January 10, 2007, to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq.
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That--
(1) Congress and the American people will continue to support and protect the members of the United States Armed Forces who are serving or who have served bravely and honorably in Iraq; and

(2) Congress disapproves of the decision of President George W. Bush announced on January 10, 2007, to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq.

Here's the WaPo's take.

Update: The RedStaters take names on the 17 GOPers who voted for the res. Big ups to Rick Keller (R) of Florida.
