For President Bush, it’s not a question of whether he will veto a congressional measure calling for withdrawing troops from Iraq, but rather when he will do it. Democratic congressional aides said they anticipate that Bush will reject the Iraq funding bill Wednesday after receiving it from Capitol Hill on Tuesday. That would force the democratically controlled Congress to revisit the dilemma of how to give troops in the field the money they need while satisfying opponents of the war who want U.S. involvement ended.
The “SURRENDER MONKEY” Democrats could care less about Iraq’s progress towards democracy and a free society.
Political advantage is all they desire – and the White House in 2008.
