GET ME A BUCKET
Hmmm. Lots of references to things like:
*other restrictions on Bush's Iraq policies, andHmmmm. So what's it all mean? I think I can sum that up in a couple three word phrases:
*troops in combat getting the resources they need without disruption, and
*the responsibility to fund the troops and make sure they have the right equipment, and
*political and military goals for the Iraqi government to meet toward establishment of a more democratic society, and
*whether Democrats intend to give Bush power to order the aid to be spent regardless of progress, and
*insistance that U.S. troops meet certain standards before being sent into battle, and my favorite,
*a presidential waiver that will allow Bush to ignore certain restrictions.
*Dems Cave AgainMeanwhile, just a little reminder of one salient fact: CONGRESS controls the purse-strings, not the President.
*Business As Usual
Meanwhile, 100+ young American men & women will die this month. Luckily, Memorial Day comes in May.
