Bush vetos bringing home our troops

As was fully expected, Der Fuhrer has just vetoed legislation to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq. I sure am proud of this president's prudent use of veto power; twice, once to avoid curing disease and save lives, and now to, well, save lives!

He added, "The need to act is urgent because without a war-funding bill, the armed forces will have to consider cutting back on buying or repairing equipment."

What? Did he finally authorize sending them some euipment? I thought they were still building their own armor from scrapyards and rubbish piles. . .

"Our troops and their families deserve better, and their elected leaders can do better," Bush said. "Whatever our differences, surely we can agree that our troops are worthy of this funding and that we have a responsibility to get it to them without further delay".

Agreed! Now, that being said, why are YOU delaying their funding??

Bush continues to ignore Americans desire to stop this war, which has claimed the lives of more than 3,350 members of the military.

"The president wants a blank check," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi moments after Bush's appearance. "The Congress is not going to give it to him." She said Congress would work with him to find common ground but added that there was "great distance" between them on Iraq.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said "Bush has an obligation to explain his plan for responsibly ending the war. If the president thinks by vetoing this bill, he'll stop us from working to change the direction of the war in Iraq, he is mistaken".

I think this will be an interesting showdown between the Democrats in Congress and The President.

I think both sides have handled it rather badly.

The first thing The Democrats should do is strip out the 20 billion of pork barrel spending from the bill. It is shameful and it is something they PROMISED to not do on the campaign trail in 2006.

Anyone that wants to refute this needs to remember that I have been castigating the Republicans for years about pork barrel spending.

After they strip out the pork the Democrats should pass the bill with a timetable and with a budget that ONLY includes war funding. There should be NOTHING else in this bill.

They should send that to Bush and make him veto it...

Unfortunately that is not going to happen. Both sides are going to play politics and try to gain traction for the 2008 Presidential race.

Bush is either just plain stupid, or he knows something that he is not sharing with the world. Why else would he vote against the American population???

Mike, I thought I heard that this bill was revised and had the pork removed from it. Did I hear wrong?

They still had pork in the bill, I think there was something for farm disasters and not sure what else.

I can't wait to for the speech of the next president, were they anounce the US troops are just picking up everything and leaving. "Hey were sorry we messed up your country, but we can't fix it so you all on your own. Oh by the way can we get a few barrels of oil on the way out?"

John, this piece of garbage Dubya cannot be gone soon enough. Seriously, have you ever seen a sorrier excuse for a human being?

Anon - Of course I do! It's obvious!

Mike - There's less pork in this bill than in most of the ones that the last congress rubber-stamped and Bush signed. And THIS congress was attempting to FINALLY help the Katrina victims as well as protect our farmers here in the midwest.

Hill - No I have not! He's THE worst president EVER! Coolidge is looking up from his grave thinking "Damn"!
