Deal could mean another Bush victory on war funding [$70,000,000,000 for war]


www.cnn.com

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Democratic lawmakers and staffers privately say they're closing in on a broad budget deal that would give President Bush as much as $70 billion in new war funding.
The deal would lack a key provision Democrats had attached to previous funding bills calling for most U.S. troops to come home from Iraq by the end of 2008, which would be a significant legislative victory for Bush.

the fact that Bush is making this deal at the end of his presidency is scary people! Usually presidents don't make radical decisions right before they leave office, they let things stay calm for the next president...

Could this be what many have speculated?
Does Bush plan to leave office peacefully?

Here's an interesting snippit from the same article:


The Democratic aide acknowledged the president is likely to get new money for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan before Congress adjourns for the year. "Yes, in the end, that's where we will be," the aide said.
