An Invitation From The (p)resident
King George has spoken...
He has invited the Democrats to talk about the standoff over war funding. Under his plan, they'd come to the White House (his turf) to “discuss the way forward on a bill that is a clean bill” (re: his bill) a bill that would contain no “artificial timetables for withdrawal.”
What’s an “artificial” timetable? Seems to highwayscribery that the dates Senate and House leaders have chosen to bring the troops home are pretty “tangible.” Imagine what the troops think.
And what’s a dirty bill anyway?
The (p)resident wants the Democrats to come to the White House and tell him how they plan to give him what he wants with no compromise on his part of any kind.
But first he’d like to insult them: “It is irresponsible for the Democratic leadership in Congress to delay for months on end while our troops are in combat are waiting for the funds they need to succeed.”
“Succeed” you see.
Sounds like a party the Democrats would be very smart to skip in lieu of a press conference calling the (p)resident’s most recent and disingenuous political ploy exactly what it is...his most recent and disingenuous political ploy.
the scribe hopes the Democrats hold firm and make clear it’s irresponsible for the (p)resident to let these guys get blown up, one by one, without any plan for withdrawal, to “delay for months on end,” their deserved return to family, hearth and home.
Meantime, highwayscribery waits with trepidation having to run Gov. Schwarzenegger’s next announcements of more California soldiers killed in battle given the high number of casualties that occurred over the weekend.
It takes a few days to sink in, but the bad news always arrives.
