Let me see if I have this right: Congress passes a funding bill for the military that includes time lines and actually gives Bush more than he asked for. It contains some time lines. Bush wants the money, but not the time lines, so he says he's going to veto it.

David Swanson: Veto This

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by David Swanson

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is right to point Unitary Executive George W. Bush toward a copy of the Constitution. The President (should Bush care to resume that legal role) is permitted to veto bills but not to write them. In particular, the President cannot rewrite legislation after it has been voted on and before he signs it. Nor can any member of Congress.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Little did Bush realize so long ago when he issued that infamous challenge, "Bring it on" -- they would! Here we are now in the 5th year of this pre-planned, ill-conceived, preemptive, illegal, unnecessary war and "they" are still bringing it on! "Insurgents have struck inside the Green Zone, which includes the U.S. Embassy, on six of the past seven days, once with deadly consequences. A U.S. soldier and a U.S. government contractor were killed Tuesday night by a rocket attack that also seriously wounded a civilian, military and embassy officials said. One soldier and at least three other civilians received minor injuries, U.S. Embassy spokesman Lou Fintor said."

Okay, now I'm worried.

There have been several rounds of reports that the war-obsessed Bush administration was getting ready to attack Iran - first last September, then in December, and more recently in January and February.

It's time for impeachment to come out of the deep freeze.

For a year now, Democratic leaders such as Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), and DNC head Howard Dean have been working to tamp down the pressures to hold the president accountable for his crimes and abuses of power by way of impeachment.

Fretting about my country was taking its toll. Believe-it-or-not revelations of White House imbecility were imploding my brain. My head was spinning from the barrage of lies, worse lies, and perjuries, while the gears of my mind were grinding on bare cartilage. My heart was becoming emotionally constipated on the daily dosage of Iraqi carnage.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) has finally gone too far. His words and votes against global warming have been annoying, but now he is vowing to use parliamentary procedure to personally block Al Gore's "Live Earth" concert from using the U.S. Capitol building as a venue as planned.

Subject: Kucinich

It seems to me that most Buzz readers would like to end this war now, not a year and a half from now. Well if you haven't read it yet, Dennis Kucinich has a plan and it makes sense to me. It's not going to make some oil companies very happy but it's the right thing to do.

John McCain made a complete fool of himself on CNN's "Situation Room" on Tuesday. Pressed by Wolf Blitzer, McCain stood by his statement the previous day that Baghdad is now safe enough to take a casual neighborhood walk.
