George Bush vetoed a spending bill that contained provisions that were unwise and dangerous.
I fully support that veto.
But he DID vote no against funds for the troops though.
If we can’t point out that Bush vetoed a bill EVERYONE KNEW WOULD BE VETOED, then why does the same not apply to democrats that voted for a bill they knew would not pass?
Both situations are simply different viewpoints send a clear and distinct message to the other one. [/quote]
renny, the democrats on that list are voting to cut off funds to a war that several voted for.
How do you think the soldiers feel when they see this?
Stabbed in the back. They sent us and now they are going to cut off our supplies?
I’d bet they could care less about “symbolism.”
Again, harry reid has publically announced he wants to cut off funding. This was his trial balloon. He and his little pals are now bragging about how many people voted for it.
Do you think this will slow them down?
No, it will embolden them to further recklessness.
Do not compare this with Bush’s veto.
Bush was saying, You cannot usurp the CIC’s authority in this manner. Further, it’s bad war making policy to set deadlines in a combat zone. Both tactically and strategically it will be harmful.
He is exactly correct. Remember the last time we set deadlines like this in a successful war?
I don’t either.
The dems are really looking to cut the funds. See harry reid.
I cannot think of any worse message.
They know that Bush will not withdraw until he is ready. Therefore, they are going to push this until the funding stops.
Do you support that?
Make sure you say yes or no.
One thing I don’t want you to do is compare Bush’s stance with the people on that list.
There is a world of difference.
Finally, I’ll repeat: If you want a change in Iraq, elect a President who runs/waves the white flag.
DO NOT CUT OFF THE FUNDING. Whatever your feeling about this war, they shouldn’t be punished in this way.
