GOOD FOR THEM (BUT WILL THE DECIDER LET IT BE GOOD FOR THE TROOPS?)
Of course, White House Deputy Press Secretary, Dana Perino, told the press the bill is "dead on arrival."
Just like the troops Bush is still set on sending to the Bagdad meat grinder, huh?
We know the Decider is gonna break out his normally-dormant veto pen, sending it back to The Hill, likely failing to garner the necessary override votes. Nevertheless, it's good to see them putting pressure on the Administration and the Congressional GOPers (and the few Dems who didn't vote yea).
Let's see what Plan B holds.
Incidentally, the version I linked to today doesn't include the reference, but when I read it yesterday, the article noted that the bill is due to arrive on Bush's desk on Tuesday: the 4th Anniversary of his ludicrous appearence on the aircraft carrier, prancing & preening like a teenage boy on prom night, posing for photos in his package-hugging flyboy suit, declaring an end to combat action in Iraq. You remember, "Mission Accomplished."
Anyhow, Dana Perino declared that such timing regarding the bill would constitute a "ridiculous PR stunt."
All I can say is, what could possibly be more appropriate?
