What Next
I've mentioned before that it should be interesting to see what the Republicans do in the face of Bush's intransigence. But just now it appears that the Dems are at a crossroads. With an impending Bush veto of the Iraq legislation, there appear to be mixed signals:
In anticipation of a Bush veto and the likelihood that they won’t be able to summon enough Republicans who care about the troops or public opinion sufficiently to override that veto, Senate Democrats are already rolling out a contingency plan that puts the GOP on notice about something very important: That they are going to be forced over and over again to be on the record as voting to strand our military men and women in the middle of a bloody civil war.
(AP) If President Bush vetoes an Iraq war spending bill as promised, Congress quickly will provide the money without the withdrawal timeline the White House objects to because no lawmaker "wants to play chicken with our troops," Sen. Barack Obama said Sunday.
Methinks someone has their story wrong. Which is it?
