Dems feeling the heat
Democrats Feel Pressure After Bush Veto of Iraq War Bill - Democrats are under new pressure to craft a compromise following President Bush's veto of an Iraq spending bill which includes timelines for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. [Fox News]
Well, they asked for it. The problem their leadership has, or rather those in their party w/any sanity, is the moonbat/nutroot left-wing activists. Nothing but a complete and total withdrawal (read: surrender) will satisfy them...and the last thing that the moderate Democrats (who made the current Democrat majority possible) want is to reinforce the image of their party as being weak on defense.
But here they are. They've passed their bill...made their statement...and seen it vetoed as promised. Now what? The pressure's on them, not Bush, in this case. He should use this opportunity to hold their feet to the fire and accept nothing less than a clean bill, with no timetables and no pork. It's a lose-lose for them. The public sees them as dilly-dallying around on an important issue, (for the sake of more local pork projects?)...and their base sees them as caving in to the man they hate most in the world. Let's hope the White House plays this one right.
