His statement from Friday:
“By choosing to make a political statement and passing a bill they know will never become law, the Democrats in Congress have only delayed the delivery of the vital funds and resources our troops need,” Bush said. “The clock is running. The Secretary of Defense has warned that if Congress does not approve the emergency funding for our troops by April 15, our men and women in uniform will face significant disruptions — and so will their families.”In other words, Fuck you, pay me.
Oh, you had a fire? Fuck you, pay me. Place got hit by lightning huh? Fuck you, pay me.
Someone should tell Bush that, constitutionally, Congress has the "power of the purse" and it's their, um, perogative how they will use it. Surely the man who sang "My Perogative" as he fired some US Attorneys should understand the concept of "perogative."
Or does he?
