HOUSE DEFEATOCRATS PROVE WHY LEGISLATORS MAKE LOUSY PRESIDENTS

The bill the Defeatocrats in the House passed was all about putting partisan politics and political posing above our national security and ahead of the safety and effectiveness of our troops serviong in harm's way.

The Defeatocrats would rather send a message of APPEASEMENT to their LOONY LEFT BASE - and the JIHADIST ENEMY, than do what is responsible.

And they think they can get away with it because they KNOW that Bush will veto it.

This is why the vote was the HEIGHT OF POLITICAL CYNICISM AND BLATANT PANDERING.

And it is par for the course in a legislature which is usually more focused on how votes PLAY in the home district, than how they play out in the world at large.

Presidents - and governors - have to make many real hard decisions, and their decisions are not merely votes on bills: EXECUTIVE decisions have serious repercussions in the REAL WORLD, and effect REAL PEOPLE.

Voters instinctively knows this. That's why the USA has elected so few legislators to the presidency. GOOD THING! If this remains true in 2008, it means that only Rudy and Romney have a real chance at winning the WH for the GOP, and only Bill Richardson has a chance at winning it for the Dems. (Or John Warner shouod he decide to get back into the race.)

BTW: Bush's response was GRRRRRRREAT! EXCERPT:
As I have made clear for weeks, I will veto it if it comes to my desk. And because the vote in the House was so close, it is clear that my veto would be sustained. Today's action in the House does only one thing: it delays the delivering of vital resources for our troops. A narrow majority has decided to take this course, just as General Petraeus and his troops are carrying out a new strategy to help the Iraqis secure their capital city.

Amid the real challenges in Iraq, we're beginning to see some signs of progress. Yet, to score political points, the Democratic majority in the House has shown it is willing to undermine the gains our troops are making on the ground.

Democrats want to make clear that they oppose the war in Iraq. They have made their point. For some, that is not enough. These Democrats believe that the longer they can delay funding for our troops, the more likely they are to force me to accept restrictions on our commanders, an artificial timetable for withdrawal, and their pet spending projects. This is not going to happen.
