The Dems do not have the majority necessary for an overide of a veto, and need to stop acting as if they do.Perhaps the think they can turn enough Republicans in the House and Senate to overide on one of their despicable bills.
I think they are finding that not enouugh Pubbies will turn, because those who did would be pilloried as traitors to the cause, and traitors to our troops in foreign lands.
President Bush is moarlly right in his resolve, and he is strategically correct. The Dems simly wish to prevent a sucess in Iraq, which they know to be NOW developing, which has hastened their game, and added a sense of desperation to it, of threatening a court action and impeachment proceeedings.
Them Dems face an unblinking President, and will continue hopefully to face an unblinking Republican party.
Where will the President get funding for Iraq? I believe he will start emergency closing down of those programs which Dems value the most, such as NPR and others.
The Jones suit pertained to an action that occurred BEFORE Slick became President. A standing President cannot be sued for actions taken while President.
I agree 100%. That’s why the Clintons went out of their way to load the courts. They couldn’t get what they wanted from the voters (who have become smarter and smarter), so they went to the courts to get the laws established which could never be passed in legislation, or worse yet, agreed to by the voters.
In fact, Clinton so loaded the D.C. courts that the Bush admin could not get a case before any of the Circuit courts. By the time they got to a court (one of Bush’s appointments), 4-5 years had gone by and nobody wanted to mess with it .. because nobody wanted to have Clinton’s face all over the front pages day after day after day.
This is why the dems are so over-the-top about the Supreme Court.
Really .. are you saying San Fran is going to have a problem ..??
Check your mail..
Ex Post Facto anyone?
“...you cant sue a standing President.”
Can you sue him if he is sitting?
Well you can’t sue a standing President for acts he did as President but you can for acts he may have done before he became President, as Clinton found out with Paula Jones. At least I believe that is the case.
Pure idiocy. How about suing UBL? They’d rather do that than spend another cent on the WOT.
How about suing this anti-American b@#t@rd? He’s got much deeper pockets.
interesting. Is Nancy Pelosi now the president?
Don’t worry. Our Republican congressmen and senators will resolutely defend against such a Dem Party tactic.
We can count on the Repubs to be united and steadfast in standing up to the bullying tactics of the Dems.
Right? Right? Do I hear an “amen”?
She is a person that Cant Understand Normal Thinking.....
LOL! That is one of the nicest pictures of Cindy Sheehan I think I have ever seen! ;-)
SUE? Apparently she did not pay attention in her civics class and know that the President can veto any law he sees fit. It is called checks and balances.
I agree but they dont care they see GW as the man who stole the election from Gore. They do not give a damn about this country.
I like GW about as well as the next guy on FR, but I’ve also been a crew chief on supersonic fighter jets. All I have to say is “Don’t bet on it.” Get a bachelor’s degree in tree science, and you once qualified to be a fighter pilot, as long as you had 20/20 vision, good reflexes, and a pulse.
Why didn’t Bush declare war, instead of creating the situation we face now with Pelosi pulling such stunt?
