The vote came shortly after Bush invited all House Republicans to the White House to appear with him in a sort of pep rally to bolster his position in the continuing war policy fight. "We stand united in saying loud and clear that when we've got a troop in harm's way, we expect that troop to be fully funded," Bush said Basically, in my opinon bush threw a pep rally to make sure his little piggys do not try to overide his upcoming veto. Why do some republicans distance themselves from Bush, but stick by his policy? Im sure Bush charmed there pants off at this rally. Its really going to be impossible to get the 60 votes for override so forget about it democrats. Secondy, about that quote. It is frustrating that he says stuff like this, very frustrating and saddening. Everyone can agree that the troops need funding when in harms way, but who put them in harms way in the first place? A republican controlled senate, and BUSH put them in harms way. Thats the whole point of this bill, to fund them and at the same time phase them out of harms way. He is contradicting himself, and ignoring the main focus of this bill, to undo what he messed up. A year is plenty of time for the iraqis to get it together, and if it's not, seek help from surrounding country's! Bush is issolating himself from other countrys, from the senate democrats, and from the american people. So much for bi partisan government.
