Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-California, replied, “You’ve made your point. You had your dog-and-pony show. You’ve posed for political holy pictures on TV. Now what is your plan to support the troops?”

Wow! They actuall reported on something a REPUBLICAN said!

If I were writing the headline:

“Democrats Lose in Showdown with President over Iraq Funding”

sub-headline: “Pelosi barely musters 3/4ths of votes required for veto override”

Thanks for the list. I see the Nancy-boy Dem, Chet Edwards, who ran as a conservative last year in his TX district< which includes Ft. Hood and College Station, voted with his Queen again. That liar better not come back here with his dimples next election and say he supports the troops.
And I’ve noticed that Lampson, the faux-conservative Dem that is in Tom DeLay’s seat, hasn’t voted on any of these bills. That way he can claim that he didn’t support Queen Nancy and her merry band of cheese-eating surrender monkeys. That’s just being the coward he is, and I hope the good conservative voters around Sugar Land are paying attention.

Where are all those folks that were pissed off when the Republicans were in office and did not pass that Nuclear Option. We’ll boy would we be in deep crap had that been passed. Even if they were inept, I am greatful for that.

The Nuclear Option has zero relationship to this situation. Do you even know what the terms of the Nuclear Option were?

The moveon.org moonbats are having a “Support The Troops - Override The Veto” rally in Cincinnati at 4:30pm today. Nice timing for the rally — since the House already voted and failed.

I also heard from fellow Ohio Freepers that the ‘bats are having a rally in Kettering as well (suburb of Dayton). No doubt they spent money setting up these ridiculous media stunts all over the country. Too bad Queen Nancy suffered another defeat.

And even "present" stretches the truth -- that guy is in orbit around some planet, just not Earth.

The Rats are much more interested in being on the record for their far out looney base who have pressured them to get the troops out of Iraq.

Too bad the repubs didn't use this tactic when they were in charge.

The repubs simply didn't bring a bill to the floor for a vote if they knew the votes weren't there.

Thinking of SS reform in particular.
Should have gotten the dims on the record as opposing it.

No offense intended, but I don't think you understand the differences.

The "Nuclear Option" and this are apples and oranges. Judges do not constitutionally have to be super majority approved. Vetos have to be overrulled by a 60% majority via the constitution.

There are so many simple answers to placing the Democrats in their place, that it is beyond irritating.
The President simply has to point out that in our form of Government, those Representatives in the House speak for the American people and they have spoken for no surrender, regardless of what the Majority leader wishes.

He’s opposed to funding the war and wanted an immediate withdrawl.

I believe some democrats voted no before for that reason, but they voted yes on the veto override.

“I’m confident, with goodwill on both sides, that we can move beyond political statements,” Bush said

That's his key phrase, if you parse it... there is no goodwill on the part of the RATs. And W knows it. Misunderestimated yet again.

“After the House vote, congressional leaders met with the president in what they called a “positive” exchange.

“We made our position clear. [The president] made his position clear. Now it’s time for us to try to work together to come together,” Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said after the president’s meeting.”

San Fran Anti America Nancy Piglosi made the above comments.

But, but, but, I thought the American people GAVE the Marxist’s Dimocrats a MANDATE to get us out of the war?? I thought that they were GOING to get us out?? If they had a mandate, why the hell did they need $Billions of dollars in pork to BUY VOTES OF THEIR OWN MARXISTS’S???? Bribe money, that’s all that pork was. They cannot get what they claim. They don’t have a friggin’ mandate. They are lying, losers, defeatist, appeasers of our enemies. The Marxist’s Dimocrats ARE ENEMIES OF THE REPUBLIC.

Some mandate ... a mere 16 House districts give the RATs the majority in the House and Sen. Johnson’s brain recovery in the Senate. Sen. Lieberman could live up to his oath and choose to caucus with the Republicans and Harry Reid becomes the minority leader (unless one of the Northeast RINOs decides to pull a Jeffords).

Media here said the vote was “just short of the 2/3rds needed”. Fell farther short than that. According to my calculations, the override number would be 290. They only got 218 on the original approval vote.

lol. Maybe Bob Uker was writing the story. Still, the default amount is zero dollars. Like it or not, President Bush is not in a position of strength.
