Musings 192--Bush kicks democrat's asses...

The dems all thought that the winning of the majority of congress in both houses would make the President sit up and take notice. Well, that is just not the case, and the democrats better learn to bluff better if they do not want to get their asses kicked--continuously-- by the Decider-in-Chief.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid definitely acted like they had never played poker in their lives. They were bluffing when they said that they were not going to give the president his $100+ billion to maintain the troops. They said they wanted pull-out dates. Bushie said "nope" by vetoing the bill. They then had to show their cards, and they didn't even have a pair of deuces. Bush is from Texas. They all play Hold'em down there. Bush's hand was weak, but it was by far better than the democrats.

The democrats, which should now be called the scary-crats, say they have benchmarks in the new version of the bill. Benchmarks that Bushie can disregard, if he feels like it. Wow! Ante up, I want to play.

It would have all just seemed like business as usual except that it is costing us lives. The Democratic Party is going to have to learn hardball tactics. They should have taken the same bill and sent it right back to Bush. He would have vetoed it. He'd of whined and cried about the troops. The democrats should have sighed and sent it back a third time. He may or may not have vetoed it a third time due to time running out for previous funding. Basically, it would have been up to the Decider to veto the bill and cut off the funding. I mean, if he loves the troops, he wouldn't have done it. If, as I suspect, he doesn't give a good shit about the troops; then, he would have vetoed it and let the funding lapse. The troops would have had to start coming out of Iraq. Thus, the dems could have claimed victory and blamed it on the President.

The democrats just do not have the stomach for facing down Bushie. He keeps saying it is all their fault for everything that is bad in the world since the dawn of time. They, by not moving all their chips in, allow him to do so. Hold'em is not a game for the weak of heart. Bush may be a lot of things, but he is not short on stubbornness. What little heart he has is definitely not weak.

"We got to fund our troops," whined the democrats as they lost the game. There would not have been one death due to lack of funds. Congress can pass a stopgap measure over night. Hell, they did it for a comatose, brain-dead woman in Florida. Doing it for the troops would have been easy.

Hey, I haven't posted for awhile. I hope that I am back. Sometimes things make you too angry to write about them. I think I'm better now...maybe!
