He would be the one responsible

When the war funding bill arrives at the president’s desk and the president vetoes it, won’t it be the president who will be the person solely responsible for the money being delayed in getting to the troops? Does he really want to be the one responsible for that happening?

George lives on another planet to us, Patricia. He is only responsible for what God instructs him to do.

He lives in a fantasy world but we in the real world have to pay the price.

George should be in a padded cell along with all the other lunatics. Instead he's running the world.

Just goes to show that America really is a land of opportunity!

Cheers!

I don't think he has a concept of taking responsibility. Someone else will be blamed, and Fox News will help do it.

He knows Iraq has been a huge failure. Now he just looking for someone to blame. Every chance he gets he'll be blaming someone for his failures.

How in the world could it be HIS fault, he is the President?

My guess is that despite both houses of congress managing to do the will and mandate of the people who elected them, the hate-talk "Compassionate Conservative" media will spin it that they were the ones that screwed the pooch for funding the troops.

I don't think Chimpy will veto it, he will take the money and run while issuing one of his infamous "signing statements."

He will veto it and blames the Dems for making it impossible for him to supply the troops and for tying his hands in the GWOT and FOX and the other MSM will carry his water for him.

if he doesnt care about stealing one (possibly two) elections. fabricating evidence to start an illegal war, the environment etc etc i don't think he will give a shit about this.

Ah, but the flaw in your logic is that you credit Dubya with understanding the concept of responsibility. Time and time again, he has demonstrated that this isn't in his vocabulary. He'll just blame others.

glug glug glug .... watch the man drown in his own hubris...

I listened to his tone as he called out Congress as if he's the strict schoolmarm. What an ass.

He'll veto it allright, now that he's gone on TV with that face and tone, he has no other option.

IMHO, The key is making it clear to the American people that it is Bush who is choosing not to fund the troops. If they understand this - and Pelosi and every other dem of any prominence should be getting in front of every camera they can find and shout it at the top of their lungs as often as they can, ButtCannon's (sorry)prediction that the public will blame the dems will be so much BS.

No matter what he does, he will try to deflect the blame elsewhere. It amazes me how he can stand there and lie has a** off, even though everybody sees through it. And how he can fling blame everywhere else, all the while dodging responsibility for his own damned errors and greed, which are just as transparent as the lies. Then he will shed some crocodile tears for all the troops that have made the ultimate sacrifice for his lust for money and power.

He could give a shit about the troops. They know it, too.

no, he had already been setting up the democratic congress for this, saying that there was money for special projects in the bill. So he can say he is vetoing it for that, not for the timetable.

You have to take the sum total of Chimpy's wasted life, and put it in perspective.

Chimpy has been taught since his hatching that he never makes a mistake. It is common for the children of bluebloods to learn this from an early age. And when we look at Chimpy's entire life, we see a story of a man who has never been held to account for his actions-whether it be not showing up for his TANG service, or running businesses into the ground, or letting thousands of Americans die in New Orleans while he strummed a guitar.

Chimpletons, of course, are simply continuing a pattern of enabling his stupidity that has existed his whole life. Somebody has always wiped Chimpy's ass, and I don't think he has a concept of right and wrong anymore.

Doesn't matter what he does, it's not his fault. Don't believe me? Just ask him! The idiot will deny funding, and the right will blame others. The man is mad I tell you!

I think Undeniable has something to ponder when he says the Prezedent will sign the bill, attach a "signing statement" saying he won't abide by the dates, whatever they might be, and use the money now and worry about the consequences only several months short of the end of his administration. In other words, he'll just run out the clock and let the press and the Democrats howl at the moon. What exactly can they do? The Democrats have already taken impeachment off the table. Good analysis Undeniable.

He's already blaming the Democrats, despite saying he will veto any funding bill that comes out of Congress. I mean, Hello? What's up with that?

Bush is a major ass, but I'm peeved with the Dems for the pork lading. It just gives him an excuse. They should have headed that off at the pass and taken out the lard.

Hiya PoP. Have you ever seen a situation in which a small screaming child is sitting alone in a sand box? All the other children have left the sand box, as they no longer want to play with him. No matter how much his parents and other children try to reason with him, his tantrum continues. He didn't get his way and that's all that matters. That child is GW Bush.

I tend to agree with "undeniable liberal" on this one. He will sign the bill so the money gets to Iraq. The media will cover it for about 5 seconds before moving on to another Anna Nicole story, and then W will issue one of his signing statements saying he reserves the right to ignore any part of the law he does not like. No one will do or say anything about it, and the only "media" that will notice are the "far-left, Bush bashing, America hating" bloggers.

I think Undeniable Liberal could be right... after a few tries, with the money for the troops being dependent upon an agreed-upon date for pulling out troops from Iraq, Bush will go ahead, bite the bullet, and sign the bill... but attach a "signing statement". Hopefully by that time, Congress will have decreed that Bush's signing statements are an unconstitutional power grab on the part of the president (which they are). He

But who will defend his signing statements once his boy Gonzo is thrown out on his ass? I guess I shouldn't worry. Bush must have a warehouse full of lawyers ready and waiting to defend his numerous violations of the law.

Certainly, he wants to be the decider that decides that troops don't get funded. It's all politics. Too bad innocent people are dying for it and him. That's the ultimate tragegy of his generation

Funding or not, it will continue to go on. Funding is just paper work and figures.

No funds on paper will not bring the troops home. It will just be business as usual, in the red, but what do they care?

He doesn't know which end is up...much less can he figure out the irony of this situation. All he knows is he's not getting his way...and he simply must stamp his feet at it. If I were a praying person I'd pray that he holds his breath until something turns extremely blue!

EXACTLY!!

Even if he signs it (with said signing statement) he will simply ignore the timeline anyway.

There is only one real way out of this: ITMFA!

Sadly, it looks like furious George will veto it and the Democrats will fold and take out the timetable.
