Can You Say V-E-T-O?
al-Qaeda has to be laughing their butts off.
Our bipolar Congress, supporting troop surge one minute and setting dates for withdraw, (aka: retreat) the next, has narrowly approved a cut-and-run bill scheduled to make us losers on September 1st, 2008.
That same bill is laden with $20 BILLION in pork. PORK!!! This from the same party who said we couldn't afford the President's tax cuts, which gave me back an infinitesimal amount of my own money.
Hey, no problem though... We'll just raise your taxes some, chumps.
President Bush has vowed to veto this Congressional atrocity because of the surrender date in it. I think that he should veto it on that, but he should do it on the amount of waste alone.
We'll see if Bush holds to his guns on this one. I'm not sure that he will; he's been without his cajones for quite awhile now.
