    Al Gore NASHVILLE, USA 27-May-07 THE pursuit of "dominance" in foreign policy led the Bush administration to ignore the UN, to do serious damage to our most important alliances, to violate international law, and to cultivate the hatred and contempt of many in the rest of the world. The seductive appeal of exercising unconstrained unilateral power led this president to interpret his powers under the constitution in a way that brought to life the worst nightmare of the founders. Any policy based on domination of the rest of the world not only creates enemies for the US and recruits for...

    After Pelosi’s Syria Visit, Dissidents Cower by Katherine Zoepf Published: May 15, 2007 Photo: Reuters/Sana Nancy Pelosi and Bashar al-Assad. DAMASCUS, SYRIA—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Syria last month, and the related question of whether or not the U.S. should formally re-engage this Baathist republic, remains as controversial a topic on the streets of Damascus as it was in the days afterwards among Beltway bloggers. And, perverse as it may seem to some American liberals, it is the Syrians who are most sympathetic to their progressive values who have been most critical of Ms. Pelosi’s attempts to begin a...

    Press Releases Contact: Brendan Daly/Nadeam Elshami 202-226-7616 For Immediate Release 05/10/2007 Pelosi: ‘Benchmarks Without Consequences and Enforcement are Meaningless’ Washington, D.C. -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today in response to President Bush’s remarks on the war in Iraq, in which he said he would accept benchmarks: “The President has long said he supports benchmarks; what he fails to accept is accountability for failing to meet those benchmarks. Benchmarks without consequences and enforcement are meaningless, a blank check. The American people, retired military commanders, and a growing bipartisan majority in both the House and the Senate reject giving...

    "The Democrats' excuse-making just doesn’t cut it." ................................ “This war is lost,” Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid recently proclaimed."...... ....................... That pessimism about Iraq is now widely shared by his Democratic colleagues. But many of these converted doves aren’t being quite honest about why they’ve radically changed their views of the war. Most of the serious Democratic presidential candidates — Sens. Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Christopher Dodd and former Sen. John Edwards — once voted, along with Reid, to authorize the war. Sen. Barack Obama didn’t. But, then, he wasn’t in the Senate at the time. Now these former...

    Congress: Having gone back to the drawing board, the best the Democrats can offer is to fund the war in Iraq for two months. If President Bush is presented with such a bill, he should veto it like he did the last one. It's possible that Democrats in the House are so blinded by their hatred of the president that they don't realize the deep damage they're doing to the country. If they get their way, America will lose a war. This is simply unconscionable. The Senate's own sorry counterpart to the House's bill of surrender would force the U.S....

    WASHINGTON (AP) - 0509dv-iraq-spending 0509dvs-cheney-baghdad The White House acknowledged public frustration with the Iraq war but tried to play down Republican anxieties Thursday as the House prepared to pass legislation that could cut off funding for U.S. troops as early as July. The bill is hotly contested by the White House, opposed by nearly all Republicans and unlikely to survive in the Senate. But House Democratic leaders say the measure shows they refuse to back down in challenging President Bush on a deeply unpopular and costly war. "The president refuses to listen to the American people who want this war...

    Associated Press ^ | May 9, 2007
    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush would veto a bill drafted by House Democratic leaders that would fund the Iraq war only into the summer months, his spokesman said Wednesday. The Democrats' proposal would pay for the war through July, then give Congress the option of cutting off money after that if conditions do not improve. Bush requested more than $90 billion to fund the war through September. "There are restrictions on funding and there are also some of the spending items that were mentioned in the first veto message that are still in the bill," White House press secretary Tony...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is threatening to take President Bush to court if he issues a signing statement as a way of sidestepping a carefully crafted compromise Iraq war spending bill. Pelosi recently told a group of liberal bloggers, “We can take the president to court” if he issues a signing statement, according to Kid Oakland, a blogger who covered Pelosi’s remarks for the liberal website dailykos.com. “The president has made excessive use of signing statements and Congress is considering ways to respond to this executive-branch overreaching,” a spokesman for Pelosi, Nadeam Elshami, said. “Whether through the oversight or...

    DISILLUSIONED supporters of President George W Bush are defecting to Barack Obama, the Democratic senator for Illinois, as the White House candidate with the best chance of uniting a divided nation. Tom Bernstein went to Yale University with Bush and co-owned the Texas Rangers baseball team with him. In 2004 he donated the maximum $2,000 to the president’s reelection campaign and gave $50,000 to the Republican National Committee. This year he is switching his support to Obama. He is one of many former Bush admirers who find the Democrat newcomer appealing. Matthew Dowd, Bush’s chief campaign strategist in 2004, announced...

    Democrats enjoyed rhetorical revenge Thursday after Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met Syria's foreign minister, just a month after President Bush and many congressional Republicans lambasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for traveling to Damascus. Rice's meeting in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, "is a marked improvement in the administration's ostrich policy approach, and a tacit admission of how wrong it was last month in criticizing the speaker of the House and congressional colleagues, including myself, for going to Damascus,'' said Rep. Tom Lantos, D-San Mateo. Pelosi, D-San Francisco, and Lantos led a bipartisan House delegation in a meeting with Syrian President...

    Anti-War Democrats Say They Won't Give Up By Susan Jones CNSNews.com Senior Editor May 02, 2007 (CNSNews.com) - While the Israeli people are furious with their prime minister for failing to achieve a conclusive victory in the war with Hizballah, many Americans are furious with President Bush for insisting on victory in the Iraq war. Democratic congressional leaders are trying to end a war that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last month described as "lost." On Wednesday, one day after vetoing a war-funding bill that set a timeline for withdrawing U.S. troops, President Bush planned to meet with congressional leaders...

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- President Bush showed little appetite for compromise Wednesday, hours ahead of a session with congressional leaders aimed at crafting a new bill to fund the war in Iraq. Fresh from his Tuesday night veto of spending legislation that set timelines for U.S. troop withdrawals, Bush stuck firmly to his demands on what a follow up bill should look like. The Democrats who control of Capitol Hill, and their Republican counterparts, were due at the White House Wednesday afternoon for discussions with the president, just after a planned attempt in the House — sure to fail — to...

    WASHINGTON — In the end, neither side was willing to give an inch — or give up the last word. In the span of about two hours Tuesday, President Bush received, vetoed and publicly denounced legislation ordering troops to begin coming home from Iraq. Democrats, who had staged a dramatic signing ceremony, headed back to the television cameras to chide Bush for rejecting it.

According to the information Lopusina obtained, the intelligence about the Kosovo Albanian military plan and the meeting has been acquired by the Spanish and French intelligence agents that have infiltrated al Qaeda cells...

    An emergency war funding bill that includes a troop withdrawal date will arrive at the White House on Tuesday. President Bush says he'll veto it because it includes a withdrawal deadline, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "strongly encouraged" the president to sign it. Reid on Monday said the bill "makes our country more secure by charting a new course in Iraq so that we can return our focus to the global challenges that lie ahead." The Nevada Democrat called it a "good and responsible bill" that will "begin the long process of leading us out of a war that...

The May 1 edition of "The View" marked the fourth anniversary of President Bush’s famous "mission accomplished" announcement with Rosie O’Donnell’s predictable rants against the war and the administration. The co-host mysteriously claimed Afghanistan had nothing to do with September 11 and downplayed the Al Qaeda threat, claiming it is simply a U.S. government scare tactic. Additionally, Rosie, with the aide of guest co-host Ricki Lake, followed Charles Rangel and Andy Rooney to assert that U.S. soldiers are not patriots, but losers...
