Bush calls Democrats ‘irresponsible’ on war

April 4, 2007

— President Bush warned Tuesday that some American soldiers might have to stay longer in Iraq if Congress does not quickly deliver a war spending bill that he can sign, and he lashed out at Democratic leaders as "irresponsible" and accused them of making the war "a political dance."

President Bush speaks at a news conference Tuesday in the Rose Garden of the White House. President Bush denounced Democrats for going on spring break without approving money for the Iraq war with no strings.

President Bush speaks at a news conference Tuesday in the Rose Garden of the White House. President Bush denounced Democrats for going on spring break without approving money for the Iraq war with no strings.

With Congress in its spring recess, the president slammed the Democrats on a war-funding bill that he pledges to veto because it includes timelines for withdrawals of U.S. troops from Iraq. It was the latest salvo in an escalating battle as both sides gird for a standoff that could echo the 1995 shutdown of the federal government.

Bush's offensive followed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's warning that he will press for a cutoff of all war funding in March 2008 if the president rejects congressional timelines for withdrawal.

Bush warned during a Rose Garden news conference that a prolonged standoff over the war-spending bill could jeopardize the delivery of equipment to troops on the front line and delay the training of new soldiers, in turn forcing troops already deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan to serve longer stints there.

"In a time of war, it's irresponsible for the Democrat leadership in ... Congress to delay for months on end while our troops in combat are waiting for the funds," said Bush, counting his 57th day since delivering a war-spending request to Congress.

Yet, while calling on Congress to "come off their vacation" and quickly tackle "emergency" war needs, the president was heading to his Texas ranch on Wednesday for a spring retreat of his own through Easter Sunday.

Democrats remain unbowed by Bush's criticism. They plan to send the president a supplemental spending bill to fund the war in Iraq and Afghanistan once they resolve differences between the House and the Senate, and they expect a veto over the withdrawal timelines.

Drew, most of your comments are, as usual completely without merrit, just personal attacks.

one comment to reply to, Laura Bush and Condi did not meet with a leader who fascilitates terrorist groups from yesterday's World Net Daily: "Nancy Pelosi understands the area (Middle East) well, more than Bush and Dr. (Condoleeza) Rice," said Al-Batch, speaking to WND from Gaza. "If the Democrats want to make negotiations with Syria, Hamas, and Hezbollah, this means the Democratic Party understands well what happens in this area and I think Pelosi will succeed. ... I hope she wins the next elections."

Islamic Jihad has carried out scores of shootings and rocket attacks, and, together with the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, has taken responsibility for every suicide bombing in Israel the past two years.

Ramadan Shallah, overall chief of Islamic Jihad, lives in Syria, as does Hamas chieftain Khaled Meshaal. Israel has accused the Syrian-based Hamas and Islamic Jihad leadership of ordering militants in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to carry out terror attacks.

Al-Batch expressed hope Pelosi and the Democratic Party will pressure Bush to create dialogue with Syria and Middle East "resistance movements" and prompt an American withdrawal from Iraq.

"Bush and Dr. Rice made so many mistakes in the Middle East. Just look at Palestinian clashes and Iraq. But I think some changes are happening for the Bush administration's foreign policy because of the hand of Nancy Pelosi. I think the Democratic Party can do things the best. ... Pelosi is going down a good road by this policy of dialogue," he said.

Abu Abdullah, a leader of Hamas' military wing in the Gaza Strip, said the willingness by some lawmakers to talk with Syria "is proof of the importance of the resistance against the U.S."

"The Americans know and understand they are losing in Iraq and the Middle East and that their only chance to survive is to reduce hostilities with Arab countries and with Islam. Islam is the new giant of the world."

"Pelosi's visit to Syria was very brave. She is a brave woman," Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, told WND.

"I think it's very nice and I think it's much better when you sit face to face and talk to (Syrian President Bashar) Assad. It's a very good idea. I think she is brave and hope all the people will support her. All the American people must make peace with Syria and Iran and with Hamas. ... The Syrian president then reportedly took Pelosi to lunch ...

At a press conference after the meeting, Pelosi said that during her talks with Assad she "determined that the road to Damascus is the road to peace."

And so what if I did?

A) Yeah, I "cut-&-paste" ahead of time, rather than dreaming "stuff" up like most extremist crackpots.

I also cite references ahead of time, as much as possible

B) So what if I Google? Just shows I'm actively seeking information, rather than sitting back like most extremists and swallowing whatever pablum is spoon-fed by the conservative extremist views correspundits.

BTW, maybe you didn't notice because of an adrenalin-induced, foam-at-the-mouth fit of conniption... but...

"I've heard some of these leftists myself say we shouldn't try to bring democracy to the Iraqis, that they can't do democracy...there's racism for you"

You've officially jumped the shark. Welcome to the ranks of rt, Arminius, and other infamous wingnuts that have sullied this page.

"they are opposed to peace for israel, self determination for the Iraqis...makes you wonder what the heck kind of values they really have"

Wait, so the right IS into self-determination for Iraq?YOU MUST HAVE FORGOTTEN THE PART WHERE WE INVADED THEIR F** COUNTRY WITHOUT ANY GOOD REASON. And I know its probably way above your head, but do you see the irony in saying the left doesn't believe in Iraqi self-determination, while IT IS YOUR SIDE THAT ADVOCATES AN OPEN-ENDED PRESENCE THERE? I don't really expect you to answer that question, as thinking critically might cause the unused portions of your brain to become cramped.

"they have a leader go to syria and put on the oppressive burka. I'd like to see Axis Nancy live under that burka. there's irresponsible"

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, YOU MUST HAVE MISSED THE PHOTOS OF LAURA F** BUSH AND CONDI RICE WEARING HIJABS (NOT A BURQA, MORON) WHEN THEY WENT TO THE MIDDLE EAST. I GUESS THAT'S DIFFERENT THOUGH, AS THEY ARE CONNECTED TO YOUR POLITICAL MESSIAH AND THUS CAN DO NO WRONG. MORON.

"of course there have been mistakes in Iraq. no war occurs without them"

Exactly. This war occurred BECAUSE of a mistake, a massive mistake on the part of Bush and sycophant psycho wingnuts like yourself.

"stop believing Joe Wilson and pay attention."

'Pay attention.' That's rich coming from the likes of you.

"they're doing much more of that. also, despite all the defeat-mongering by the leftists, including on here, early indications from the "surge" are very positive with murders and sectarian violence way down"

Uhhh, yeah. Or not. Hundreds killed last week, over 80 US troops killed in March. Violence moving to other parts of Iraq. Once again, just because a lie suits your political beliefs doesn't make it so.

"there is a real desperation among the Bush haters that if Iraq turns out to be a success, what'll it make of them and their dem leaders who've been preaching defeat. they will all look pretty bad when Iraq is a peaceful place ruling itself"

I wish someone could throw this quote back to you in less than 6 months, when Congressional Republicans and Republican pres candidates are running from Bush and his disaster as if he's got the plague. They'll obviously be doing that for the general public, because NO MATTER WHAT BUSH DOES, HE WILL REMAIN AN OBJECT OF WORSHIP FOR WINGNUTS LIKE YOURSELF. And 'preaching defeat?' Do you ever stray far from the party line, or is the propaganda so instilled in your pea-brain that its automatically regurgitated at every opportunity?

"if we pull out prematurely there will be millions caught up in a huge bloodbath"

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, I WONDER WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT F** NOW IN IRAQ? How would you describe it, o slavish one? A tea party? A walk in the park?

no actual evidence that GWB lied. the "sixteen words" remember that was citing the brits. in an investigationn, their intel chief named something like Scarlet said that their government still stood by the claim that Saddam was indeed trying to get uranium from west africa. remember when we went into iraq we found 250-tons of uranium and that wasn't there to create glow-in-the-dark garden rocks! not finding the WMD's doesn't mean they were lied about, please get past the narrow thinking.


I see Righty and Poshy you have really pissed off the Aggie, now you Know better. I expect you two to play nice and don't upset him/her again with your sarcasm and your truth.


the dems have certainly shown a lot of irresponsibility. no war was ever won by a deadline! winning means Iraq can govern itself and fight to provide security for its own citizens. they're doing much more of that. also, despite all the defeat-mongering by the leftists, including on here, early indications from the "surge" are very positive with murders and sectarian violence way down; even Charlie Gibson reported that on the MSM.

there is a real desperation among the Bush haters that if Iraq turns out to be a success, what'll it make of them and their dem leaders who've been preaching defeat. they will all look pretty bad when Iraq is a peaceful place ruling itself.

if we pull out prematurely there will be millions caught up in a huge bloodbath. and I've heard some of these leftists myself say we shouldn't try to bring democracy to the Iraqis, that they can't do democracy...there's racism for you. they are opposed to peace for israel, self determination for the Iraqis...makes you wonder what the heck kind of values they really have. they have a leader go to syria and put on the oppressive burka. I'd like to see Axis Nancy live under that burka. there's irresponsible. she wanted to make the members of the house and senate into little generals to micromanage the war. bad and bad precedence. of course there have been mistakes in Iraq. no war occurs without them. stop believing Joe Wilson and pay attention.

KILLING 3,260 American Soldiers, SO FAR.

Nation building is a state department task. The generals were divided, some for a troop increase and some against the need for more troops. The generals had based much of their planning on the assumption that the baathists would continue to administer and police until a transition was conducted. That all changed when Bremer announced a policy that immediately disenfranchised the sunni-baathists.

So to answer your question, was Bush irresponsible? The buck stops at the presidency, and he was in charge so Bremer's mistakes are in effect Bush's mistakes.

But the story is about the democrats being "irresponsible", and they have been.

Scenebooster,

The war wasn't irresponsible, the conduct of the operation after the collapse was irresponsible. Now we have to look at the lesser of two evils, destroy American credibility and undermine US security or commit to peace and fight the insurgency as a nation. The nation isn't at war with terrorism, the Army is at war. Time to back the troops with real support, money, and leadership. GEN Patreaus has a plan, the democrats approved the plan, now we should all stand behind this plan and make it work. If the democrats had no intention of supporting the plan and supporting GEN Patreaus, then they were dishonest in confirming him.

Agnostick, Don't know who you're referencing, but you ought to refrain from name calling.

"Schweizer, after scouring once-classified KGB, East German Stasi and Soviet Communist Party files, discovered incontrovertible evidence that the Soviets not only played footsie with high-ranking Democrats, they also worked behind the scenes to influence American elections.

In "Reagan's War," Schweizer shows how the Democrats worked with Moscow to try to undermine Reagan before and after he became president. "

http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=3946

Soviet diplomatic accounts and material from the archives show that in January 1984 former President Jimmy Carter dropped by Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin's residence for a private meeting.

Carter expressed his concern about and opposition to Reagan's defense buildup. He boldly told Dobrynin that Moscow would be better off with someone else in the White House. If Reagan won, he warned, "There would not be a single agreement on arms control, especially on nuclear arms, as long as Reagan remained in power."

Using the Russians to influence the presidential election was nothing new for Carter.

Schweizer reveals Russian documents that show that in the waning days of the 1980 campaign, the Carter White House dispatched businessman Armand Hammer to the Soviet Embassy.

Hammer was a longtime Soviet-phile, and he explained to the Soviet ambassador that Carter was "clearly alarmed" at the prospect of losing to Reagan. ++++++++++++++++

Enough of this Republican balderdash about WMD's, terrorists, protecting America. We haven't been attacked but just once on American soil and that, according to Rosie and other Hollyood patriots, was an inside job.

No, the Democrats and their strong internet-based support are on track to keep America strong, safe and respected by even the most desperate regimes around the globe.

Democrats know how to think like a terrorist; therefore winning the hearts and minds of the terrorists and bringing peace-loving and America-weary terrorist leaders to the table for productive, multi-national agreement that war is not necessary and we can all live as one.

Democrats are not acting politically, but in the spirit of peace, American solidarity and global peace.

NO it should be a lesson to the Democratic Party to put up better candidates rather than the Boobs they put up in the last 2 elections like Kerry and Gore. The 2000 Presidential Election was not necessarily "won" by the Republicans bue "lost" by that boob Al Gore. ANd then you put up someone EVEN MORE wooden and crooked in Kerry.

Before you start bitching about the Republican Party .... CLEAN UP YOUR OWN PARTY!!!!!

"There is nothing more paramount than to bring down the Bush Administration for all of their wrongoing."

"After all, Americans picked Democrats to run things. Americans are always right, according to any president and politician who has ever states as much."

In a liberal's mind the "majority party" is only a mandate when it is the democratic party. When the American Public elected a Senate, House and President from the Republican Party, they did not like the "will of the people" and "filibustered" to oppose the power and to have "checks and balances". Well that is going to come around again. Now the Republicans will "check and balance" so watch just how far ya go with all those investigations.

I'm just glad Dems are looking out for us, because noone else is.

We are heading into a great era of prosperity and unprecedented global security with Democrats running things now.

The democrats aren't irresponsible, they're aiding and abedding. Nancy is in Syria probably plotting the assasination of Bush and Cheney. She is number 3 in line and is talking to the enemy.

Remember when Carter was asking the Russians to whack Reagan.

Your hard core liberal only knows oppression.
