Senator Harry Reid Smacks Down The Bush Lie

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

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Bush's troop withdrawal timeline from Iraq and the veto threat of this bill.

"Democrats will send President Bush a bill that gives our troops the resources they need and a strategy in Iraq worthy of their sacrifices. If the President vetoes this bill he will have delayed funding for troops and kept in place his strategy for failure."     Source

   Reid said this after Bush once again tried to lay the blame at the feet of the Democrats, saying that the Dems are playing games and delaying the funds request for the troops.

 Reid: "[Bush] should become in tune with the fact that he is President of the United States, not King of the United States...He has another branch of government, namely the legislative branch of government that he has to deal with."

He may as well have hitched up his Goliath-sized jock strap and said, "Welcome to 'Co-Equal,' bitch. That's what the people want."   rudepundit

   So we have Bush talking about the Democrats adding pork to the war funding bill. So what! It is nothing compared to what the Republican led Senate has done since 2001, according to the Heritage Foundation. Furthermore, the Democrats have to add these items to this bill because it is the only way to get the Bush Crime Family's attention. This was a great move on the part of the Dems.

   This shows that not only will Bush not support our troops, but he will not support the people in this country that need the help.
