BATTLE CRY….So who wins the showdown between Congress and President Bush over war funding? The LA Times says it’s Bush:
Denouncing Democrats from coast to coast for trying to limit his freedom of action in Iraq, President Bush is betting — as he often has — that when it comes to national security, confrontation works better than conciliation.
In Washington, Republicans and Democrats expect that the president will win this battle in the short run….”Ultimately, politically, we have to give him [the] money,” Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, predicted in an interview on NBC this week.
Sheesh. If that’s the way Democrats insist on talking, then I guess I predict that Bush will win too.
