WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that President Bush will reject any attempt by Congress to require the Iraqi government to meet benchmarks as a condition for US troops remaining in Iraq, in a blow to emerging efforts to craft a compromise war-funding bill.
I hope the Democrats use this to beat Bush about the head, because it's a no-brainer. Not only won't they accept a timetable, they refuse to consider any GOALS a criteria for withdrawal? They refuse to demand progress from the Iraqi Government as a pre-requisite to sending Americans to die for Bagdhad?
Let's override THAT veto, and watch the little boy throw a temper tantrum.
