Bush to Veto Troop Funding
Yesterday, President Bush in front of troops in the White House vowed to veto a bill pass by the House that provides vital funding for the troops. The bill also provides a leadership that is lacking from President Bush White House. Its clear President Bush Iraq policy is a failure; the Republican Party does not have moral conviction to lead the Military and the American people in the efforts in Iraq and war against terrorism. The Democratic Party in the House has offer a clear choice.

The Republican Party lead by President Bush are for a prolonged war in Iraq without any end in sight.
The $124 billion House legislation would pay for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan this year but would require that combat troops come home from Iraq before September 2008 — or earlier if the Iraqi government did not meet certain requirements. Democrats said it was time to heed the mandate of their election sweep last November, which gave them control of Congress.Indeed.
"The American people have lost faith in the president's conduct of this war," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. "The American people see the reality of the war, the president does not."
