It's pretty obvious that the Dems are trying to present bills that appear to be war funding bills but the real aim is to end the war before it is finished. That is why Bush will keep vetoing.
Exactly how are they trying to "sneak" another one on us?
Consider this:If it's so obvious then they're not being very sneaky. ...
If it's so obvious then they're not being very sneaky. Polls show that a solid majority of americans favor setting a deadline for ending the war, so in that sense it would appear that the elected representatives of the american people are just doing their jobs.
Thus, when a bill comes before him, he may not know what it really says. He may be spoon fed someone's interpretation of some high points.
- Bush does not read the newspapers. "As for newspapers, Mr. Bush said, "I glance at the headlines" but "rarely read the stories." The people who brief him on current events encounter many of the newsmakers personally, he said, and in any case "probably read the news themselves."
- Bush "takes pains to insist that he gets his information on what the world is saying only in predigested bits from his appointees."
After 6 years of never having to read what he was signing, Bush might just accidentally sign something his handlers want him to veto. That is sneaky.
In otherwords Pres. Bush has "someone's" as his handlers and appointees making his decsions for him.
The President's source of information,news,views,etc..is the same as any other President,in the past,this is nothing new as you make it sound.The difference is he's being fed bad information and trying to legitimize failed policies.
What "job" are we supposed to get done out there?
Extinguish all Terrorist hiding amongst the population?
Create an infrastructure of Democracy amongst factions that hate each other for life?
War is not being Police Officers and Consultants searching nieghborhoods and homes.Our Soldiers are sitting ducks out there and this Administration wants to send more troops and money.It's time for Iraq'ies to step up to the plate and take over as best they can.I believe our job is done out there.
Conservatives,You need to stop listening to Ultra Right wing talk radio and Fox News and move a little more to the center.
"The difference is he's being fed bad information"
Yes he was, from the broken down CIA and intelligence from the Clinton Administration? And every country who was our ally, not to mention every far left democrat out there including , Kennedy, Kerry and Clinton&Clinton.....He followed the lead of there were WMD's and there have been Wmds found, but you wont hear it on your far left websites.
"Conservatives,You need to stop listening to Ultra Right wing talk radio and Fox News and move a little more to the center"
Please I am stuck with one left wing radio station for 10 hours a day. I finally feel free when I can get in my own truck and wash these idiots out of my brain. And I do listen, I have no choice, I keep waiting for something to convince me my thought patern is wrong, 1 I dont hear it.
All I hear is why we need to raise taxes, how we need to bring eveyone home so we can take care of a tornado in Kansas, (instead of 11 people dying we can lose 3000 more at a time.", and how great socialized medicine would be. How everyone should have a job, and be able to make a living wage.
WEll there were bums during ww2 and there are bums now. The only difference was they lived on the street and now they live in subsidized housing and buy big screen tvs and terrorize neighborhoods since they have nothing else to do with their lives 24/7. And not because there are no jobs, because they can live better off me, and you by the way, who give a very large portion of our hard earned dollars to them.
And the democrats biggest wish is that we all have the same.
I dont feel they give a hoot about what happened on 9/11 and what has happened since, they choose to ignore it. They dont give a about our people fighting with their lives to keep us "safer", break up terrorist rings WHEREVER THEY MAY BE, lets name a few, Buffalo. NJ six, just for two....they want to play games, and Ill fight on the side of anyone who is against that mindset. Maybe you leftys should watch something else, and maybe you could actually think...and something besides air america, or ed schultz, just for s and giggles, and see if maybe you can learn, instead of being FED bull. You can be more informed if you listen to both sides, I have I know. End of rant.
Well said Tooner. I wish I could add to your Rep again, but the Rep program won't let me yet. My parents grew up in the Great Depression, FDR was great at helping people back then. My mom is a diehard Democrat to this day. Now the Democrats want us to be a weak nation and tax the hell out us working folks to pay for the welfare class. I quit voting for them a long time ago.
