# Gov / Politics
It’s Time for George W. Bush to Stand Down and Shut Up. It’s outrageous that the president responsible for the disastrous war in Iraq that helped turned the one in Afghanistan into a quagmire is objecting to Biden’s troop withdrawal.

The dramatic exodus of Democratic Texas lawmakers has choked the political airways in a haze of confusion, posturing and finger-pointing.

That question beats at the heart of the Democratic quorum break that has brought the Legislature to a halt and focused national attention on GOP efforts to make voting in Texas harder.

Texans testifying on GOP voting bill faced a 17 hour-wait to be heard by lawmakers in the dead of night.

In the House, public testimony wouldn’t begin until early the next morning.

Here’s why the fight over voting rights is causing another major divide across the US. Republican states are passing several voter restriction laws in response to Trump’s 2020 loss. Here’s how it could impact midterms and 2024 elections.
