Recently President Bush vetoed the Dems on setting a date for troop withdrawl from Iraq stating that it would create a "Cauldron of Chaos". Does the president and these people who make up these phrases actually think that such things will cover up his ineptitude anymore? I mean really how many catch phrases have we gone through since this war? "Shock and Awe", "Weapons of Mass Destruction" and all of it to put a fear into people. Such a waste.


WASHINGTON (May 1) -- President Bush vetoed legislation to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq Tuesday night in a historic showdown with Congress over whether the unpopular and costly war should end or escalate.

In only the second veto of his presidency, Bush rejected legislation pushed by Democratic leaders that would require the first U.S. combat troops to be withdrawn from Iraq by Oct. 1 with a goal of a complete pullout six months later.

"This is a prescription for chaos and confusion and we must not impose it on our troops," Bush said in a nationally broadcast statement from the White House. He said the bill would "mandate a rigid and artificial deadline" for troop pullouts, and "it makes no sense to tell the enemy when you plan to start withdrawing."

I wonder if his own daughters were over in Iraq fighting like the daughters of other families, would he be so slow in removing them from harms way?
