House Dems Fail To Override Veto

The House today tried – and failed – to override President Bush's veto of the pork laden war supplemental bill that required troops to be withdrawn from Iraq.

The vote was 222-203 to override the veto, far short of the two-thirds necessary.

Everyone knew the veto, promised for the last three months, would be sustained:

Perhaps now the Democrats will send the President a war funding bill he can sign. If the Democrats truly want to end the war, they should refuse to fund it. Either way, having made the political points, it is time for the Democrats to stop using the money, needed to support our troops fighting the war, to seek some partisan political advantage.
