Ed Morissey says that Bambi is threatening not to pay the troops.
The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 1363, making appropriations for the Department of Defense for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2011, and for other purposes. As the President stated on April 5, 2011, if negotiations are making significant progress, the Administration would support a short-term, clean Continuing Resolution to allow for enactment of a final bill.
For the past several weeks, the Administration has worked diligently and in good faith to find common ground on the shared goal of cutting spending. After giving the Congress more time by signing short-term extensions into law, the President believes that we need to put politics aside and work out our differences for a bill that covers the rest of the fiscal year. This bill is a distraction from the real work that would bring us closer to a reasonable compromise for funding the remainder of Fiscal Year 2011 and avert a disruptive Federal Government shutdown that would put the Nation’s economic recovery in jeopardy. The Administration will continue to work with the Congress to arrive at a compromise that will fund the Government for the remainder of the fiscal year in a way that does not undermine future growth and job creation and that averts a costly Government shutdown. It is critical that the Congress send a final bill to the President’s desk that provides certainty to our men and women in military uniform, their families, small businesses, homeowners, taxpayers, and all Americans. H.R. 1363 simply delays that critical final outcome.
If presented with this bill, the President will veto it.
Oh, now that’s real smart, Bambi. Piss off (by pissing on) our military. The outfit that, despite the most metrosexually bleating of your so-called “promises”, still maintains a presence in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
The outfit that you’re about to send over to Libya to be “boots on the ground”, despite your supposedly-sincere insistence that this just won’t happen.
The outfit that, when the fecal material really hits the oscillator, may just remember who tried to screw them over.
The armed outfit that may remember.
The armed and dangerous outfit.
I think you catch my point.
