You could probably work out for yourself that George W Bush was something of a spoiled brat as a child. It's not difficult to figure. He's still acting that way. Let's face it, his mom is more concerned with her beautiful mind than much else.
So, it's no surprise that Bush goes into something of a temper tantrum when faced with a real mother.
"Here's the bottom line," Bush said, one day after the Senate voted, in a close vote of 50 to 48, to include in the emergency military spending bill a timetable for pulling out most US forces from Iraq in March of 2008. "The House and Senate bills have too much pork, too many conditions on our commanders and an artificial timetable for withdrawal. And I have made it clear for weeks if either version comes to my desk, I'm going to veto it."See. It goes back to his childhood when he was probably told how cute he was when he put that straw up his nose.
Then, along comes a real mother. No nonsense, not willing to spank, but prepared to provide tough love.
"On this very important matter, I would extend a hand of friendship to the president just to say to him 'Calm down with the threats, there's a new Congress in town," Pelosi said. "We respect your constitutional role, we want you to respect ours."Nancy Pelosi doesn't think little George is cute at all. In fact, she thinks he's behaving rather badly.
Pelosi continued, "This war must end. The American people have lost faith in the president's conduct of the war. Let's see how we can work together."
"So I just wish the president would take a deep breath, recognize again that we each have our constitutional role, and we should respect that in terms of each other," Pelosi added.
Bush is about one tantrum away from a major "time out".
