WASHINGTON – President Bush, facing opposition from both parties over his plan to send more troops to Iraq, said he has the authority to act no matter what Congress wants.
“I fully understand they could try to stop me from doing it. But I’ve made my decision. And we’re going forward,” Bush told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in an interview to air Sunday night.
Vice President Dick Cheney asserted that lawmakers’ criticism will not influence Bush’s plans and he dismissed any effort to “run a war by committee.”

These guys in office are just unbelievable. The arrogance is mind boggling and an embarrassment for our country. Gee, what is this a democracy or something? Of the people and for the people? Looks nice on paper but doesn’t really apply? Oh, Brother! Just boils my blood.
Would it be such “an existential conflict”, as Cheney philosophizes, if there wasn’t so much oil at stake? Just ask Africa.
I haven’t even mentioned whether I agree with the deployment of more troops or not, that isn’t my issue here…it is the attitude that comes from Bush and Cheney that they have all the answers and screw what everyone else thinks. I guess it’s worked so well so far, eh? Give Democracy a working chance fellas, you might learn something.
