The Carpetbagger Report
Since President Bush has made it painfully clear that he has no intention of fixing his failed Iraq policy, it is no longer a question of if Congress will end this war; it is a question of when...
The showdown over war funding between Congress and the White House is already ugly. Dems have passed a spending bill with a withdrawal timeline, while Bush prefers an open-ended commitment to fighting in Iraq’s civil war indefinitely. Because lawmakers refused to go along with the president’s demand for condition-free money, a veto is now all but inevitable.
The question, at that point, will be what congressional Dems plan to do about it. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) announced this morning that he and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will unveil a measure when the Senate reconvenes next week that the White House really isn’t going to like.
