Condi: War Will Not End on Our Watch

Rice: Bush would oppose Iraq benchmarks

AP
Excerpt
WASHINGTON –
President Bush will not sign any war spending bill that penalizes
Iraq’s government for failing to make progress, Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice said Sunday, a fresh warning to Congress about challenging him.

Bush is expected to veto a bill this week that would order U.S. troops to begin withdrawing from Iraq by Oct. 1. Lacking the votes to override a veto, the Democratic-led Congress is considering a revised plan to pay for the way while requiring Iraq to meet benchmarks for progress.

Democratic lawmakers, eager to wind the war down, showed little appetite for establishing goals without consequences. Iraq has struggled to keep its own promises for distributing oil wealth, refining its constitution and expanding democratic participation.

“The benchmarks — the Iraqis agreed to it, the president agreed it,” said Rep. John Murtha (news, bio, voting record), D-Pa., who heads a House subcommittee that controls defense spending. “We’re saying to them, `Well, let’s put some teeth into the benchmarks.'”

Even if they agree to scrap a troop withdrawal timetable, Democratic lawmakers say they want to link U.S. support to Iraq’s performance in some way. But they must find an approach that win Republican support to pass a new bill that Bush is willing to sign.

HLs Take
Bush will veto the troop withdrawl, then the Democrats will push a bill that will set benchmarks, Bush will veto that, the wrangling will go back and forth until January 2009, when Bush slinks off to Paraguay with the Billions he stole, and everyone in Congress will be happy except Dennis Kucinich. Don’t forget the Democrats have the power to stop the war right now. They just refuse to, it’s not because they are afraid of Bush, so why then? Because they all want to help the military industrial complex make as much money as possible. Meanwhile they hide behind the “We can’t take money away from the troops because we are afraid the Republicans will accuse of us of losing the war” BS, you know the war that Bush lost the day he invaded Iraq.

    Once again HL you make comments without the proof to back you up. People that know alot more about this war and things that are going on, like the Democrats and others are not doing things like Impeach because there are no grounds for Impeachment. Pulling our troops out of Iraq and the list goes on. You are making your judgment on what the media has told you and they wont tell you the truth because it shows that Bush is not wrong and he is not raking in the money or any of the other things you like to claim with out PROOF.
    I got one for you, why don’t we put Clinton and Gore in jail for rigging the 96 elections. Since they did. And you want to Impeach Bush. That’s fine but if you want to use the elections as part of your proof than you better start screaming for Clinton and Gore to be jailed as well because what they did is ILLEGAL. In fact you better start screaming for the whole democratic party to have charges brought up againest them.

    Schippers came across a reason he hadn’t anticipated, the Clinton-led practice of fraudulently signing up potential voters.
    the General Accounting Office and congressional committees had indicated that Clinton’s White House had used the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to further its political agenda.
    During the 1996 presidential campaign the White House pressured the INS to expedite its “Citizenship USA” program. The states with the biggest payoff were those that the INS concentrated on: California, Illinois, New York, Florida, New Jersey and Texas. Those states represented a combined 181 electoral votes. Only 89 more would have been needed to win the election.

    So your buddy Clinton did rig the 96 election. He wouldn’t have won if he hadn’t.

    Yeah right, he fixed the ’96 election, back when his popularity was high and he was running against that corpse from Carolina. When every poll had Clinton winning easily and that’s exactly what happened. Why do you think Poppy Bush waited until 2000 to run Jr. He knew the Republicans had now chance in ’96. Too much Peace and Prosperity you see. Yeah but Clinton fixed the election.
    keep dreaming.

    “I did say that I will vote for whoever the democrats nominate. I did say I was voting for Feingold in the primaries, but he decided not to run. So I am now voting for Kucinich in the primaries, (and after the debate last night I have not changed my mind) I did say that Hilary would be a good President (and I thought she did pretty will in the debate) because she would have Bill helping her out. (You know, the best President we have had in our lifetimes)” -H.L. says at April 27th 2007 at 7:19 AM.

    H.L. it looks like your going to vote for the people you are bitching about now. It looks like your going to pull a democrat party flip-flop come general election time. There is a flip flop in the makeings. Aint that right H.L.? You are going to vote for people who are “afraid of Bush.” Thus revealing that you yourself are afraid and jealous of Bush. As you have made clear you are going to vote for the people that want to “help the military industrial complex make as much money as possible.” Well, well well. This is very interesting. Was Clinton being the best president we ever had while he was pissing you off? You choose your doves and your hawks selectively H.L. In the mind of H.L. a war hawk democrat today that helps the ol military complex could instantly turn into the biggest antiwar standard bearer in the fall of 08′. Blurs the word. Blur Blur Blur the distinctions. The stink aint going to work H.L. Its time to take the cratic out of the demo-cratic party. From hence forth I will refer to them as only the demoCRAT party. Buck out!!!

    Right HL the Peace and Prosperity that you are talking about wasn’t from Clinton it came from Reagan. Clinton gave the US the highest tax increase in history in 93 along with the highest spending increase of $10 billion. Right Clinton didn’t need to fix the election. Try another spin HL.

  5. Bill Says:

    HL I told you the deomcrats wouldn’t do what they promised they were going to do. When are you going to wake up and see what they are doing. They don’t care about you they only care about their power and the money they get when they are there. The more people they get to depend on the government the better they like it. Some day you will see the light, we can only hope but than about the time you do it will probibly be to late.
