Pelosi And Reid Slam Bush's Veto

msnbc-pelosi.jpg Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid addressed the media today to respond to President Bush's excuse for vetoing the Iraq spending bill and the will of the American people. It also appears like the Democrats are reading the blogs. As Nico did earlier today, Nancy Pelosi quoted 1999 George W. Bush where he called on President Clinton to lay out a timetable for removing troops from Kosovo.

I would have included President Bush's remarks, but it was the same old tired song and dance -- "artificial timetables," "micromanaging the war," "embolden the enemy," etc. etc. Just go back and look at any of his speeches/press conferences.

UPDATE: (Nicole) Here's transcripts of Reid's statement; Jim Webb also has a few things to say (video up at dKos)
