now playing: tom petty, “straight into darkness”
next time you see one of those spiffy ads that dubya is flooding the airwaves with, blasting kerry for “no” votes on defense, think about this….
from a washington post article that you can find here:
Since Congress approved an $87 billion defense request last year, the administration has steadfastly maintained that military forces in Iraq will be sufficiently funded until early next year. President Bush’s budget request for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1 included no money for Iraqi operations, and his budget director, Joshua B. Bolten, said no request would come until January at the earliest.
or, for clarity’s sake, no more money for my unnecessary war until after the election.
