... If Congress did not approve a war funding bill, "if they do not change course in the coming weeks, the price of that failure will be paid by our troops and their loved ones," Bush told reporters.
"The bottom line is this, Congress's failure to fund our troops on the front line also mean that some of our military families could wait longer for their loved ones to return from the front lines," Bush said.
"And others can see their loved ones headed back to the war sooner than they need to. That is unacceptable to me, and I believe it is unacceptable to the American people." ...
If Dubyah believes that the American people will let he and his essentially hold the troops hostage then Bu$hCo is totally gone over the edge. How dare this chickenhawk speak such words to these families and our military after the administration has failed them in so many ways! They know plenty about "the price of failure" Sir! You have no shame!
Those Democrats and Republicans that are trying to find a solution to Bu$hCo's many failures in Iraq and his so called "Global War on Terror" will hardly be blamed by the vast majority of Americans. Lefty types and more sensible Republicans generally don't fall in line with the talking points so it might seem a touch messy yet they are getting there. I'm of course favoring Senator Feingold's most recent effort. RDF is one of the few that has gotten things right on Iraq from the get go plus he has more backbone and brains than pretty much anyone in DC.
Our Outlander of the Day, or decade for that matter, is George W. Bu$h. Peace ... or War!
UPDATE - Kos reminds us that Dubyah didn't mind a delay of 86 and 119 days from the GOP controlled Rubber Stamp Congress on his supplementals yet scolds "the Democrats" over 56 days. Silly man? I'm thinking he's just a political puppet and they really do figure the so called liberal media will just give them a pass with their posturing.
UPDATE # 2 - John Aravosis reminds us that Bush also lied today when he claimed the military commanders on the ground developed this surge strategy. In fact AEI's Frederic Kagan, an armchair soldier of the military historian type, came up with this plan. And Bush then actually dumped several military commanders that didn't fall in line. Ten year old child is being too kind John.
UPDATE #3 - This YouTube clip has most of the comments yet I can't help but wonder about Dick hiding off in the roses. Was he late? Did he have his shotgun stashed over there? I can imagine that even with Dubyah's low numbers the handlers didn't want Dead Eye anywhere up front yet to have him stashed off to the side seems even more of a negative.
