Emergency spending Bill tied to Iraq withdrawal, Bush Promises veto, Wouldn't he be guilty of not supporting the troops?

Emergency spending Bill tied to Iraq Withdrawal, Bush promise's Veto, wouldn't he be the guilty party? Would anything stop him from staying the couse and attacking Iran??

I heard this earlier today but didn't think too much about it until I thought it over and realized what it would mean. I really have to laugh! You would now have a date for Bush's attack on Iran. I have to laugh when Democrats think they can stop anything. They are well intentioned but powerless. Bush will merely attack Iran before any stop date came into effect if it did. The only thing this is going to do is give you the date when Bush will attack Iran. I refuse to believe they think they are going to top the chief idiot from his plan for new world (dis) order.

Antiwar lawmakers Thursday called on colleagues in the House of Representatives to set a "clear timeline" for an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, challenging fellow Democrats to assume the political risk of ending the war.

In a press conference, members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Out of Iraq Caucus proposed legislation that would require Congress fully to fund the safe and secure withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by December 31, 2007.

The groups' proposal comes as the Democratic House leadership unveiled a measure that calls for the withdrawal of U.S. troops in Iraq by the fall of 2008 -- or by the end of this year if President Bush is unable to show the Iraqi government is meeting certain established benchmarks.

That's CNN, This is Fox's take!
In a direct challenge to President Bush's strategy for Iraq, The plan would have troops redeploying as early as July of this year but no later than March 2008, and full combat withdrawal by August 2008.

At the same time Senate Democrats were preparing their own bill with binding legislation that would require a withdrawal from Iraq to begin no less than 120 days After the legislation is enacted with the goal of redeployment by March 31, 2008."

The Senate legislation, built on the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group, lists three exceptions. The slim Democratic majority in the Senate reduces its chances of success.

The House legislation, to be attached to the $100 billion emergency supplemental war spending bill that Bush has requested to pay for ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, is the first of its kind to establish a specific timetable for the end of U.S. combat in the four-year-old war.

I absolutely love the idea of tying the supplemental war spending Bill to a troop withdrawal however with the chief idiot even under those conditions, threatening veto. Obviously, the administration would vehemently oppose and ultimately veto any legislation that looks like what was described today (on Thursday)," senior Bush adviser Dan Bartlett told reporters as the president traveled to Brazil.

With all the dates and conditions being bandied about I have to wonder if the issue can be tied up until it is too late to serve any purpose and I have to ask, the chief idiot really veto it? Isn't that cutting off your nose to spite your face? Wouldn't that make him the party that would be guilty of not funding the troops just so he can get his way?

When all is said and done what ever dates are agreed on if any. They will merely prove to be the benchmark of Bush to attack Iran which is the real reason Bush must stay in Iraq. I fully expect him to attack some time this year anyway so setting dates id worthless. He will attack Iran and if necessary move up the date to keep the Democrat's powerless to stop him.

Right on! I can't believe that such a farce is taking place in what used to be widely accepted as the greatest nation on earth. Could you please upload Congressman Murtha's reply to Bush's "veto" pledging He says it like it is - Bush is the one who overspent, and he's trying to make everyone else - the exhausted troops, the taxpayers, the commmon Iraqis and Americans alike - pay the costs for his errors of judgment.
