Bush Bashes MoveOn.org & Code Pink Protesters! (Video)
President George W. Bush finally blasted Democrats today for paying too much attention to their base and not enough attention to the requests of American generals.
Can you say- “Bully Pulpit?”
Although it may be tempting since Code Pink throws such nice parties, that still doesn’t excuse Democrats from ignoring their responsibilities.
CODEPINK co-founder Gael Murphy and DC coordinator Allison Yorra award Congressman John Murtha with their highest honor, the Pink Badge of Courage, and thank him for his courageous stand on Iraq in 2006.
Bush blasts Code Pink & MoveOn.org:
** The entire video of the speech is HERE.
Congress also needs to pass the Department of Defense spending bill, as well as the funding bill for our nation’s veterans. There are reports that congressional leaders may be considering combining the funding bills for our military and our veterans together with a bloated labor, health and education spending bill. It’s hard to imagine a more cynical ploy than holding funding for our troops and our wounded warriors hostage in order to extract $11 billion in wasteful Washington spending. If the reports of this strategy are true, I will veto such a three-bill pileup. (Applause.)
I ask Congress to send me a clean veterans funding bill by Veterans Day; and to pass a clean defense spending bill. Congress needs to put the needs of those who put on the uniform ahead of their desire to spend more money.
When it comes to funding our troops, some in Washington should spend more time responding to the warnings of terrorists like Osama bin Laden and the requests of our commanders on the ground, and less time responding to the demands of MoveOn.org bloggers and Code Pink protesters. (Applause.)
The only thing that could have improved that speech is if he would have added this…
“And less time on Rush Limbaugh.”
