Full Story

Quote:
Senate Republicans yesterday said Democrats are weakening in the war-funding standoff with the White House, citing party infighting and the capitulation of its leaders to meet next week with President Bush.

"They are very divided on the issue," said Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, chairman of the Republican Conference. "The Democrats are all over the board on this."

He said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi looked "embarrassed" when they snubbed a White House invitation but then turned around and agreed to the talks on the war-funding bill Mr. Bush vows to veto.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Democrats are having "a debate among themselves" and he sees cracks in support for a troop pullout from Iraq.

"The first dam that is going to break is going to be on the other side after they see a presidential veto," the Kentucky Republican said.

Here is a good speach form McCain.


I am certainly no big fan of McCain, but credit where credit is due and it’s definately due here.



Quote:
"Before I left for Iraq, I watched with regret as the House of Representatives voted to deny our troops the support necessary to carry out their new mission. Democratic leaders smiled and cheered as the last votes were counted. What were they celebrating? Defeat? Surrender? In Iraq, only our enemies were cheering. A defeat for the United States is a cause for mourning not celebrating."
.....
"Our defeat in Iraq would constitute a defeat in the war against terror and extremism and would make the world a much more dangerous place. The enemies we face there harbor the same depraved indifference to human life as those who killed three thousand innocent Americans on a September morning in 2001. A couple of days before I arrived in Baghdad, a suicide car bomb destroyed a large, busy marketplace. It was a bit unusual, because new U.S. and Iraqi security measures in Baghdad have reduced the number of car bomb attacks. But this time the terrorists had a new tactic: they drove their car to a security checkpoint and were waved through because there were two small children in the back seat. The terrorists then walked away from the car, leaving the children inside it, and triggered the explosion. If the terrorists are willing to do this terrible thing to Iraqi children, what are they willing to do to our children? "

President Bush is actually following some of McCain’s strategy in Iraq. McCain had been calling for a surge long ago, far before the current surge strategy. He had also been calling for Rumsfeld’s replacement as well, Bush eventually replaced him.

implying what ? ... pork in emergency funding bill is something new ....? .. or pork in any bill is a new thing ...??? .. dont make us laugh perpy ...


heres an idea -- lets check out the pork in the 109th congress's iraq supplemental funding Bill .. and the 108th for that matter ... perhaps its more or perhaps its less .. but somehow i doubt it

and heres why :
- Bush has about one veto to his name in six years !!!!!!, ... so , we must conclude that 20 billion in pork must be a f/cking HUGGGGGE amount of bacon for this prez to raize a fvcking eyebrow over pig fat /sarcasm


ha ha ha ............HA!

Implying that the Democrats lied about their election promise to eliminate pork.

$20 billion of a $120 billion spending bill is filled with bribery for votes. Same old DC.

What happenend to the most ethical Congress ever? Same shit, different lie.

/nice try but i'm not going off thread on this one ...

..as you said "same shit" ... nothing new except for the first time bush threatens to veto over PORK (which has always been part of iraq supplementary spending bills)


the american people realize that the only guy who refuses to sign the cheque to fund the troops is the president .. that is all that matters.

Americans will realize he will not sign a cut and run bill of defeatism, and the troops will get their funding anyways.

well there you have it folks ..

perps obviously nailed on his "PORK" argument .... reverts back to meaningless slogans of his chimp president...

    "cut and run", "defeatism" ...


[/i'm just amazed perp failed to throw in "oceans no longer protect us", "stay the course" and "hard work" for good measure]
