What is the point of having control of Congress if the Democrats simply do Bush's bidding?
Let's see: no pullout date. No withdrawal timetable. No revocation of the authorization to use military force. Instead, for working their asses off in last year's Congressional elections, the Democratic base gets "benchmarks" which, if missed, "could" cause
Halliburton's monthly check "reconstruction funds" to be cut, but which cuts the President could waive if he thought it "necessary." Oh yeah, and Bush has to send Congress some book reports and an essay on How I Spent My Summer Vacation.
