The Republican bid to remove the withdrawal deadline from the bill failed today. This is a clear message that the Senate wants to see our troops get home safely. The clause requiring our involvement in the Iraqi Civil War to end is staying in.
Sadly, the President has said publicly that he's going to veto it. This will almost guarantee him a spot in the "Hall of Worst Presidents Evar"!
But there IS one way he can surprise us and maybe rehabilitate his image somewhat...
When the bill appears on your desk Mr. Bush, you can simply pick up one of your pens and sign the fucking thing into law!
Then there's at least a decent chance you won't be remembered as the worst president this nation has ever had.
And if you do that, Mr. President, boy oh boy! You'll be able to knock over the entire lefty blogosphere with a goddamened feather!
Of course, I'm not holding my breath or anything.
Oh, and Senator Lieberman acted true to form today. There isn't a single shred of decency left in that sad and pathetic little man.
