VETO THE BILL, MR. PRESIDENT

Veto the bill, Mr. President. I'm with you.

No surrender.

To the Dems and RINOs: Back to the table. Give our soldiers what they need with no strings. If you really want to run the war, join the Army.

Coming out of lurkdom to say- I'm with you and I'll donate my flag pen to the President. Is it no wonder that Demacritters and Defeat start with "D"? (Oh and Dhimmis and Dounces, and Donkeys???) Seriously, praying that they ALL Do (another D word) the right thing at this critical time for our nation.

Also pray for me, I live in Obamaland.....LOL.

The selective listening and the repeating of what they think they have heard is astounding. It's rivaled only by my 3-year-old and my fellow law students. But even those two examples have shame enough to admit when they are being ridiculous.

Bravo! I agree with you 100%! We will not surrender our footing, and we will not dishonor the memory of our soldiers who have given their lives to win this war. Not now. Not ever!

I'll second that notion... and that's coming from the mother of a soldier who is preparing to deploy for a second time.

Yeah, what they said too --- and I've got two sons in the Sand! We cannot let the deaths of so many wonderful service men and women have been for nothing but the humiliation of the USA. American CAN win this war, if the armed forces are ALLOWED to FIGHT a war instead of just handing out candy and trying to make nice. I'm with Toby Keith --- SHOVE A BOOT IN THEIR ASS! It should STILL be the American Way!

Bush needs to develop some strategy for diplomacy. Military action alone will not 'win' this conflict. Through history, the goal in the Midddle East has always been secure containment.

Lets see some regional meetings with some positive goals. Bush can and should do more on the diplomatic front, starting by replacing Condi Rice with a man who has great diplomatic skills. Having a woman involved in these negotiations is ridiculous and is a disadvantage for the US. (And this comes from a woman)

Yikes! Does anyone every offer a differing view? And do you let it stay on your blog?

In the event that you do, thank you for allowing me to say this:

I am 100% totally in support of our troops. They are simply the MOST amazing men and women on the planet! And because I believe this from the bottom of my heart, I can't help but question why we are in this war, and the competence of the men/woman who have "decided" that is good for our nation. To a person; Bush, Chaney, Rove, Rice, (Rumsfeld), (Wolfowitz), (Bolton).... not a one of them ever stepped up to the plate and served this nation in its armed forces in a war--even though some of them (Bush, Chaney, Rumsfeld) easily could have. Most of them relied on their "connections" to keep them home. Doesn't this fact cause you to question their wisdom and ability to "make war"? It certainly does me.

Our elected Congress has sent President Bush a bill that gives more money to the troops than he even asked for and only suggests benchmarks for withdrawal of our precious men and women from this utter quagmire. It's an idea that President Bush, himself, insisted every president ought to layout when engaging in a foreign conflict back in a campaign debate in 1999 when criticizing Clinton's involvement in Bosnia, but now he has seemingly forgotten this.

I honestly believe there isn't a politician in the Congress who doesn't want to give our troops EVERYTHING they need (well, maybe Dennis Kucinich!--what a looser), and from the endless stream of reports of lack of body armor, reinforced vehicles, combat training....it seems like it would be a step up from Rumfeld's army "we have" versus the "army we need" if this bill would have passed into law. Again, I WANT every member of our military to have 200% of what they need, but I’d settle for 110% over what they have now. So why wouldn’t our President?

When I read about the deaths of soldiers, I cry. My heart is broken day in and day out. It's time to come home. It's time to stop this aggression. It's time to make peace. A firm, free, and complete peace; because short of the annihilation of millions of men, women and children in the Arab world, let alone Iraq, there's never going to be an "end" to this war. And everyday we posture and prosecute it militarily; we create more and more enemies, and more and more recruits for the other side.

I am a Christian. And the words of Jesus recorded by St. Matthew echo in my mind every day as well: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall inherit the Earth."

Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts on your blog. God bless you and your family, and MOST of all, your son/daughter. They are clearly among the best persons our nation has or will ever produce.

randuwa, yes, I allow adverse comments to stay so long as they are not vulgar or foul

as for the reports of not enough body armor, improper reinforcement of vehicles, etc. -- you put way too much stock in the sensationalized headlines of the main stream media. when we "up armor" the vehicles, the enemy simply uses bigger bombs -- and there is only so much armor you can add to vehicles before the lumbering weight of the vehicles add to their own vulnerability. as for body armor, all my "sons" say that they have all the protection that they need and if anyone adds any more flaps or weight to their armor, they'll cut it off/out... again, you can only add so much weight before the added weight and restricted movement become the vulnerability for our soldiers.

I do agree that most politicians aren't doing our soldiers/military any good -- but reid, pelosi, boxer, kennedy, et al. never served in the armed forces either... and there are many of us "out here" that believe that the decision the send our sons & daughters to war was the right decision... not that mistakes haven't been made in the prosecution of the war -- but it was the right decision at the time... and we need to finish the mission.

and finally, please note that our soldiers ARE the peacemakers and I thank you for the added blessings.
