Bush to Congress: "I'll compromise, as long as we do it my way"

As a general rule when someone says they are willing to talk out differences it implies they might be willing to compromise. Not so with the Commander in Chief!

The WaPo reports:

In a somber statement on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving on a trip to New York, Bush said he was willing to meet with Democratic leaders "as many times as it takes to resolve our differences," but he signaled no intention to compromise with them on the funding bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Democrats simply need to hang tough on this. The American people are with them. Everyone can see through the lies told by Bush and Cheney -- especially Cheney. Every time they are given an opportunity to voice their opinion, the public has denounced the administration's policy in Iraq.
Vice President Cheney and Democratic leaders traded barbs over the $124 billion emergency war-funding bill, a day after Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) described Cheney as the Bush administration's "chief attack dog" against the Democrats' plan to end the war in Iraq. Reid said yesterday that Cheney lacks credibility and has offered "wildly irresponsible and inaccurate attacks on us and our strategy."
Cheney has NO credibility, and Bush can threaten veto all he wants. If he does veto the bill, and the Republicans refuse to override his veto, it will seal the deal for Democrats in 2008. Any "thinking" Republican must surely know this.
