Emboldened, Democrats hang tough on deadlines

The showdown over war funding continued Wednesday, with dubya getting more and more shrill, and Nancy Pelosi chiding him like the petulant spoiled child he is.

Speaking to a group of cattle ranchers on Wednesday, the president threatened to veto any legislation that specified withdrawal dates and timelines, and tried to shift blame for any future funding delays to the congress.

"Members of Congress need to stop making political statements and start providing vital funds for our troops," the president said

"Now, some of them believe that by delaying funding for our troops, they can force me to accept restrictions on our commanders that I believe would make withdrawal and defeat more likely," Bush continued. "That's not going to happen. If Congress fails to pass a bill to fund our troops on the front lines, the American people will know who to hold responsible."

(Catch that? I only have a bachelors education here - in other words enough psych to make me dangerous - but that right there comes from god-damned delusional thinking. Seventy percent of the country agrees with the congress on this one. Look it up.)

Nancy Pelosi, mean time, was in no mood to deal with a spoiled brat throwing a hissy-fit.

"Calm down with the threats," Pelosi said. "There's a new Congress in town. We respect your constitutional role. We want you to respect ours."



It's time to

The little shit makes me sick and he needs a whole lotta bitch-slappin' and more, to make up for lost time. I think when he's out of office he ought to just hike his ass on over to Iraq and freely stroll the streets; meet up with his blog buddies, the dentists. Better yet, he should go now.

If it can be arranged, he has a few friends who should be included in the excursion.

Alright exmi, we must all accept that you are going to be a Hawk, no matter what. Perhaps even a Hawk in the truest manner, lies and bullshit be damned, by God we will have us a WAR.
