NYET!….The latest from our commander-in-chief:

Speaking somberly on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving on a trip to New York, Bush said he was willing to meet with Democratic leaders “as many times as it takes to resolve our differences,” but he signaled no intention to compromise with them on the funding bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As I recall, that was approximately the Soviet style of “negotiation” during the Cold War. Who says Bush never learns from history?
