Let the pissing contest begin!

The Senate Republican’s said screw it..they let the Iraq Funding Bill go through without a filibuster. Either they are tired of supporting BushCo or they are thinking of their home districts and how they will explain that they keep propping up the President even after the majority of the people have spoken. From an MSNBC writeup:

WASHINGTON – Defying a veto threat, the Democratic-controlled Senate narrowly signaled support Tuesday for the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq by next March.

Republican attempts to scuttle the non-binding timeline failed on a vote of 50-48, largely along party lines. The roll call marked the Senate’s most forceful challenge to date of the administration’s handling of a war that has claimed the lives of more than 3,200 U.S. troops.

Three months after Democrats took power in Congress, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the moment was at hand to “send a message to President Bush that the time has come to find a new way forward in this intractable war.”

The Prez will of course veto and piss and moan and threaten the Democrats. They need to send him the same damn bill every week until he figures it out. Thats my story and I am sticking to it.

Words to live by: I’D RATHER HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO SCREWED HIS INTERN THAN ONE WHO SCREWED HIS COUNTRY

About Dusty, hells most vocal bitch

I am a..brown Cali bitch that is quite the opinionated,political, pain-in-the-ass, in your face kinda girl that also loves baseball and music to a fault. Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.--Albert Einstein-*

  1. I hate to say this, but they’ll probably both end up pissing into the wind.

  2. As long as the Dem’s keep sending him this bill until the end of the 110th congress, at least they tried to do something.Bush has enough money to run his war. Its all bravado and bullshit. Ask Barney Franks, he knows.

  3. Many Republicans didn’t fight the bill so it could be vetoed all the quicker. But at least, unlike rubber stamp congress gifts last year, Bush will actually have to lift a finger and sign his name to veto the bill, rather than just have his war-without-end handed to him on a silver platter.So, anyway, have we got bin Laden yet? Monkey Shrub only has two more years to track down his Daddy’s ex-CIA asset and bring his evil-doing butt to justice 😉

  4. Whatever their reasons..now the Shrub has to, as you state Joe, use his mighty pen to veto the money he wants.The.vile.prick. that he is.

  5. I still wonder about those GOP Senators who voted against it. Something tells me the people in their home states won’t forget too easily.

  6. Hopefully, the Democratic Surge will continue in the next election cycle Truffle 🙂 We can only hope.

  7. Hi there, You have done an excellent job. I’ll definitely digg it and personally recommend to my friends. I am sure they will be benefited from this website.

  8. I am extremely impressed with your writing abilities and also with the layout to your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent
    quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a great blog like this one today..

  9. Even if your dog does not spend the majority of his time outside, it is still important
    that you bring him or her to the vet for their yearly
    shots. Your dog could come in contact with
    other dogs at the dog park or at your home. If the other dog is
    sick, it could pass on to your dog. This is why it is important that they
    are vaccinated every year.When you are training your dog, try to be
    understanding and do not get frustrated when the dog does not do what you
    want them to do. Training takes time. Over time,
    your dog will learn the proper training. You are trying to change the natural instincts of the animal,
    so expect that the dog will make mistakes and be patient with them.

  10. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had
    a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

  11. hi!,I like your writing very a lot! percentage we be in contact extra approximately your article on AOL?
    I require an expert in this house to resolve my problem.

    Maybe that is you! Having a look forward to peer you.

  12. I don’t drop a leave a response, however after reading through a few of the remarks on Let the pissing contest begin! | Its my Right
    to be Left of the Center. I actually do havve a couple of questions for
    you if you don’t mind. Could it be simply me or do
    some of the responses appear as if they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I’d like
    to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you post a list of every one of all your shared pages
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
