George Bush Still Telling Lies To The American Public About Troop Funding Withdrawal

"The president is vetoing the bill to provide money for soldiers -- readiness, health care, armaments, etc and a timeline to get out of Iraq."

 So that big mouthed piece of shit up in the White House is once again calling the congressional Democrats irresponsible for approving the war bills that call for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by certain dates.

Bush: "In a time of war, it's irresponsible for the Democratic leadership in Congress to delay for months on end while our troops in combat are waiting for the funds."

The bottom line is this: Congress' failure to fund our troops on the front lines will mean that some of our military families could wait longer for their loved ones to return from the front lines. Others could see their loved ones heading back to the war sooner than they need to. That is unacceptable to me, and I believe it is unacceptable to the American people.

It's interesting that Harry Reid, leader Reid, spoke out with a different option. Whatever option they choose, we hope they get home, get a bill, and get it to my desk. And if it has artificial timetables for withdrawal, or cuts off funding for our troops, or tells our generals how to run a war, I'll veto it."  Source     

   This sorry excuse for a human being ( certainly for a president ) must have a lot of wax built up inside of his ears. not to mention the fact that he is dumber than dirt!

    Failure to fund our  troops will mean that they will be heading back to the war sooner than they need to?     Excuse me asshole! Haven't you and the military been doing this already? Our troops are already not getting the rest that they need before Bush and the rest of the criminals send them back to Iraq. The troops are already staying in Iraq longer than they are supposed to be.

   I'm telling you. These pieces of shit ( Bush, Cheney, Rice, Gates, ect. ) want to keep this war going because they know that if it ends and more of the truth comes out about these crooks, that they are in deep shit!

Let's put aside for a sec the more transparent ruse here -- that the Dems are failing to fund the troops, when in fact they passed a bill doing just that. Note that Bush is still asserting that the approach being used by the Congressional leadership -- that is, tying troop readiness standards and a withdrawal deadline to funding -- is "unacceptable" to the American people. Or at least that he "believes" (weasel word) that it's unacceptable to them.

The reality, however, is that if Bush vetoes Congress' bill, it will be Bush who is failing to fund the troops in line with what the American people want -- because the American people strongly support the Dem Congress' efforts to tie a withdrawal deadline to troop funding.

   I don't know where Bush gets his info from that makes him think that the American people back his sorry ass.

Gallup poll, March 26:

Would you favor or oppose Congress taking each of the following actions in regards to the war in Iraq?

Requiring U.S. troops to meet strict readiness criteria before being deployed to Iraq: Favor 80%, Oppose 15%

Setting a time-table for withdrawing all U.S. troops from Iraq no later than the fall of 2008: Favor 60%, Oppose 38%

Pew poll, March 26:

A solid majority of Americans say they want their congressional representative to support a bill calling for a withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq by August 2008. Nearly six-in-ten (59%) say they would like to see their representative vote for such legislation, compared with just 33% who want their representative to oppose it.

Newsweek poll, March 31:

This week the Senate joined the U.S. House of Representatives in passing legislation along party lines that included a "goal" for troop withdrawal by next March. A majority (57 percent) of Americans support the legislation.

This is the second time in under a week that Bush has suggested that public opinion is with him on Iraq. No one asked him at today's press conference why he keeps asserting this when it's entirely false -- which perhaps explains why he feels free to keep repeating it.    Source

   This has worked for Bush before, many times. I guess that he still believes that if you tell the same lie over  and over, everyone will start to believe it.
