Bush set to veto Iraq bill, address nation (6:10pm EST)
MSNBC ^

Posted on 05/01/2007 11:49:41 AM PDT by cdnerds

The White House said Bush would veto the bill on his return to the White House and then go before television cameras at 6:10 p.m. EDT, just before the evening news shows, to make a statement, coincidentally on the fourth anniversary of his so-called Mission Accomplished speech.

I would be excited to hear what he has to say if I thought he would honestly get up there and say ANYTHING that would hint to the ‘Rats that their behavior is completely unacceptable. He won’t, though. I love our President, but I wish he would stand up to Reid and his ilk.

Please Mr. President, no NEW TONE in the address to the nation. The troops need you to defend them, and that means naming names of those who are stabbing them in the back.

Stuff your bias up the rear MSNBC.

I hope the US military already has confirmation of Al-Masris death. Bush could sweeten his veto-speech with another big success in Iraq.

I love it how the Democrats say that “Bush should just compromise and not veto the bill” because they know they don’t have the votes to override his veto.

Let’s roll, Mr. President!! Time to stand up to the vicious ‘Rats and make them slink away in a quivering sulk. No more “new tone” — you need to stand up for our troops and tell the lying ‘Rats that their treasonous campaign of surrender will NOT prevail:

Biden on Iraq bill: “We’re going to shove it down his throat.”

I hope he also emphasizes how much the added pork will cost every man woman and child. The added expense has nothing to do with winning the WOT.

Photo op of Pelosi and Reid signing the bill, stating it’s not too late to change course, hoping the president will sign it....giving much hope to the enemy.

Did they talk that crap about the “Wounded Warrior” bill again?? I REALLY hate that they are using/abusing the troops this way. Totally un-American, un-Patriotic, and un-conscionable!!! >:-(

It’s going to be too painful to watch. GWB thinks whining/indignant intonation wins the argument. He’s wrong. He should call out the treasonous, slimebags, for exactly what they are in sentence number one. Sentence number two should be an appeal to people to lets their congesscritters know that the they cannot play with soldier’s lives. Sentence number three should be a direct challenge to Dingy Harry to meet him on the front lawn of the white house, bare knuckles or duel.

The last sentence should reaffirm the first three and God Bless America.

what time is Bush set to Veto this bill?

Also, was just listening to Shep Smith and he has on the Judge who said that Bush will have to blink and accept some type of time limit on Iraq or won’t get any funding for the troops.

Thought? I think the ones who need to blink are Congress!

I know Dog- thanks for the reminder!

Of course the pres will veto- but there WILL be compromises made in order for him to get anything. It will be cleaner- but still dirty.

It’s the rhetoric. They claimed that it’s now Bush’s fault that the troops don’t have funding if he vetoes. Madness, complete upside-down, inside-out madness.

All according to script and something we all knew was coming, but it’s INFURIATING.

Honestly? All I actually remember is Reid saying “change of direction in Iraq, change of direction in Iraq”...

Not sure if they used the wounded warrior rhetoric...just the tone of their voices makes my skin crawl.

This is Bush's second veto.

He vetoed the recent stem cell funding bill, if I recall correctly.
