President George W. Bush Tuesday vetoed a bill setting an Iraq withdrawal timeline, defying his Democratic foes exactly four years after he declared major combat over in the war-torn country.
"Setting a deadline for withdrawal is setting a date for failure, and that would be irresponsible," he said.
No, Mr. President. Continuing to throw lives and money at Iraq with no real strategy for success- in fact with no real definition of success- is irresponsible.
You said "Mission Accomplished" four years ago, Mr. President. Do you have any plan to make that statement come true? Or do you plan simply to 'stay the course' and watch our young soldiers die while waiting for the next president to try and extricate our country from your monumental mistake?
