Ninny Nancy Never Ending

WASHINGTON -- The House today tried – and failed – to override President Bush's veto of a $124-billion war spending bill that would have forced him to withdraw troops from Iraq.

Even as congressional leaders went to the White House to discuss a compromise bill, the House voted 222-203 to override the veto, far short of the two-thirds necessary for passage.

Debate was passionate, as it has been during each of the last two House debates over the war.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) bristled at suggestions from the White House that Democrats are planning to surrender to terrorism.

"This administration should get a clue," Pelosi said. "The war in Iraq has made matters worse." Noting that the war in Iraq has now lasted longer than U.S. involvement in World War II, Pelosi blamed the administration for neglecting "the war on terrorism …in Afghanistan" to pursue a "failed policy" in Iraq. "Stop this war without end," she said.

--- Lying, eyebrow painted political ho', speaking as if the war on terrorism is valid, or the war on Afghanistan is legitimate. Heaven forbid dems make an issue of OBL still at large, or the whodunit anthrax killers.

The comparison - "war in Iraq lasted longer than … World War II .." is as dumb as the slogans issued by the rightwing. Political pointless prattle.

What part of "fat man and little boy" do folks not understand? If Pelosi and ilk want the US to win Iraq the way the US won WWII - then shut up and give Boy George a couple of nukes for a couple of cities in Iraq. I guaranfukintee that will end the Iraq War.
