Everybody knows that bill will be vetoed.
Yes, we all knew that. So, why add the pork if it ain't going to do a bit of good for the people who wanted it in there. And, it gives Bush a reason to veto it besides the withdrawl date.
Everybody knew that the Democrats didn't have the votes from the start. The "pork" was added to get the votes it took to pass.
Wait. So this bill was so bad that we had to bribe people just to get 51 votes??? And that's the best excuse we can give?! Bribery! Let's face it. We're just as bad as Republicans. We don't deserve a majority is we're going to act the same as Republicans.
It worked. The president will veto it. The Democrats will send back another bill without the withdrawal date and without the pork. It will pass. The president will sign it. The show will be over and the war will go on.
It worked?! Selling out for a bill the president can sign? With the Republicans being able to use the pork as an example of the Democrats using the troops to play politics? And the Republicans being right?
The show will not be over. The Republicans are going to use this until November 2008 and beyond.
The Senate Democrats are a disgrace.
