The Big Veto: "The American people did not vote for failure..."
... ordered a US troop increase in January to help end sectarian killings and bolster Iraq's government, has shown no sign he will budge.
'The American people did not vote for failure and that is precisely what the Democratic leadership bill would guarantee,' he said Tuesday.Well, it takes two to tango. The American people did not all get to vote in 2000 and 2004, and may well not get to in 2008 either. This is bull hooey. The American people voted for success in 2006. If they don't get it, perhaps its because of somebody vetoing a successful plan. Just because we don't agree doesn't mean that one of us is right and one of us is wrong. I feel a planet-sized headache coming on, or more accurately, getting worse.
