    Non-binding Resolution

    Recently, I've heard a lot about " Non binding Resolution", regarding the presidents new plan in Iraq. What exactly does it mean?
    Thanks.

    Non binding means that the government doesn't have to do what the resolution says.

    It might mean that, or it might mean that Bush is resolved to do it but he can't guarantee that the Democrats will back it.

    I don't know which interpretation is the right one here, as I don't know the context. Either way, posteriors are appropriately veiled.

    Sorry, Bobk, never heard of this saying. Can you explain, please?

    If you cover your ass/arse, you make sure that if things go wrong, you don't get the blame. here, if the increase in troop levels does not produce the results Bush expects, then Congress cannot be blamed as they opposed it.

    I believe Bob was probably trying to be a bit more discreet.
