Bush pushes dubious deadline

Well what a shock. Bush lied again. He's been saying the spending bills for the military must be passed by April 15th or the troops will run out of money. In truth, they have plenty of funds to get through to June and possibly through the end of July.

Plenty of time to allow the House and Senate to negotitate legislation that would change the course of the Iraq occupation and still fund the troops stuck there. Does Bush not understand that the propaganda just ain't catapultin' anymore or is really so arrogant that he thinks he can continue to hoodwink Americans without challenge, because you know he's the decider and all and we should just trust him.

The attitude seems to be that they're just stringing it along, playing for time. After all there's no spine to forcefully stop this insanity and if they get it on with Iran, well, Iraq won't seem to matter so much any more.

I get Newsweek magazine and here's a link to what this week's feature story was about. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17773294/site/newsweek/
Some families of the fallen decided to share very private and personal correspondence with their loved ones.
It took me a long time to get through it. I can only read a little at a time. Having had a son in the Army who was deployed on several occasions,I understand the joy of hearing from them and the fear of it being the last time. My son is home safe and out of the military for which I feel relieved and grateful. But I also have a bit of guilt lurking in the backround knowing that so many didn't make it home.
It's a tough read but I recommend reading it to anyone who wants to seriously debate the war and our role. These guys deserve to be heard and have their points of view very publicly aired. Let's face it, at the end of the day, theirs is the only opinion that really counts.

To be fair, he has been in office since 2000...

Nolo - I'm getting a little concerned that they going to start up with Iran.

Rocky - thanks for the tip. I'll check it out.

LOL Romunov. You think he would have noticed that he doesn't have a rubberstamp Congress to cover for him anymore...
