Whew...I'm back...

After what seems like several years of redoing the bathroom, painting the house and packing up books, I have returned to Rip and Read.

Did anyone notice I was gone?

I still have to keep this brief today, but could not let this new story go without comment:

Bush to veto Iraq bill, make statement

See: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070501/pl_nm/iraq_bush_veto_dc_4

In a move that comes as no surprise, the President is going to try to thwart attempts to stop his trumped up detour from the war on terror and return the nation to the path of common sense.

But here is what caught my eye...

Democrats appear to have timed the delivery of their bill for Tuesday's fourth anniversary of Bush's landing on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific Ocean where he declared that major combat had ended in Iraq after the March 2003 invasion. The deck was decorated with a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

..."It is a trumped-up political stunt that is the height of cynicism," Perino said. "It is very disturbing to think that they possibly held up this money for the troops and troops' families and the resources that they need to try some PR stunt on this day."

Wow! A trumped up stunt to call attention to another trumped up stunt that has cost billions of dollars and thousands of American Lives.....Gee...no wonder she's pissed.
