DECIDING TO END THE ETERNAL WAR
Of course, President Camacho will veto it, since he vetoes only those bills that are (a) sensible and (b) representative of the will of the American People. But, as the Decider himself might say, Bring It On!
Because the Dems (plus
"We would hope that the president understands how serious we are . . . . Rather than making all the threats that he has, let's work with him and see if he can give us some ideas how we can satisfy the wishes of a majority of the Senate, the majority of the House and move forward."Ok. Not exactly a toss of the gauntlet, but better than the last 4 years' standard "Thank you sir, may I have another."
"We have misunderstood, misread, misplanned and mismanaged our honorable intentions in Iraq with an arrogant self-delusion reminiscent of Vietnam."Not bad. The quadruple "mis," followed by an "I" alliteration comes off a bit heavy-handed, but the spirit's there. I'd also leave the "we" off from the "arrogant self-delusion." I know that Bush thinks of himself & his country through the royal we, but let's not encourage that, huh?
Anyhow, Bush'll veto this, and the Dems won't get the votes to override. But with all the chatter about Constitional Crises and such, I wanna see this go to the next level. As we all know, Congress and not the Prez controls the purse-strings. If the C-in-C decides to veto a time-table over the war he not only prosecutes but has declared, then here's hoping the Congress decides to veto the funding he needs to continue.
Or even better, veto his presidency.
