Bush Vetoes Himself Further Into a Corner

Bush Vetoes Himself Further Into a Corner

It came as no shock (or awe) this week when President Bush vetoed the Senate Democrats' bill which called for a timeline for withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Four years after his famous "Mission Accomplished" speech, the president maintained that his road to victory was the right one, and that the Dems' plan would turn Iraq into a "cauldron of chaos." Bush took specific issue with the "micromanagement" laid out in the bill.Judging by his job performance, the president favors a less managed approach to the quagmire.

As the body count climbs, Bush's approval rating dips--but the mounting criticism doesn't seem to phase the president. If he read the papers, the president would see an impressive spread of cartoons taking him to task for his misguided military moves and general incompetency--and, funny enough, hardly any were drawn in his defense.
