"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

That's good stuff right there. The President not only hold the Dems feet to the fire, he shoves the right into the flames.

"I can't imagine an elected member of the United States Senate or House of Representatives saying, `I think I'm going to wait for the United Nations to make a decision,' " Bush said. "It seems like to me that if you're representing the United States, you ought to be making a decision on what's best for the United States."

"If I were running for office, I'm not sure how I'd explain to the American people -- say, `Vote for me,' and `Oh, by the way, on a matter of national security, I think I am going to wait for somebody else to act,' " Bush said. "I don't imagine Saddam Hussein sitting around, saying, `Gosh, I think I'm going to wait for some resolution.' "

Oh, I'm sure Daschle will come out and talk about how disappointed he is that the President is making this a politcal issue. Well Tom, if you would just let the Congress and Senate debate it now, as war is themost important issue tthat a country can undertake, perhaps it wouldn't be political. And let's not mention the fact that your Party's politicizing Judicial nomineees threatens to destroy one of the brances of our government.
