House votes Iraq troop withdrawal Bush would veto

I'm gonna be as civil as I can here. At least the House is doing something positive.

As for Bush, fuck him.

Not civil enough? forgive me all to hell.
The Democratic-led House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq, defying President George W. Bush by tying the measure to $50 billion in new war funds.

By a vote of 218-203, the House sent the controversial plan to the Senate, where it faced an uphill fight as Republicans have vowed to block it.

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino called on Congress to send Bush a "clean" emergency funding bill, without withdrawal dates.

"If legislation comes to the president in this form, he will certainly veto it," Perino said in a statement after the House vote.

The House vote came on the same day that an explosion in Baghdad brought more U.S. casualties, adding to what already was the Iraq war's bloodiest year for American forces.

How many flag draped caskets are enough for Bush? Has he no compassion at all? Just asking.
