WASHINGTON — In a move that is no surprise to anyone, President Bush on Tuesday issued the second veto of his administration, setting up a new battle with congressional Democrats over a war spending bill to fund troops in Iraq that also sets a timetable for withdrawal.

Bush addressed the nation late Tuesday from the White House after the veto saying the bill mandates "a rigid and artifiical deadline" that will not help end violence in Iraq.

"I believe setting a deadline for withdrawal would demoralize the Iraqi people, would encourage killers across the broader Middle East and send a signal that America does not keep its commitment," Bush said from the Cross Hall.

The legislation would "impose impossible conditions on our military commanders in combat" by allowing Congress to "dictate the terms that remaining commanders could engage the enemy," he said.

Democratic leaders slammed Bush after his veto.

"The president wants a blank check," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., moments after Bush's appearance. "The Congress is not going to give it to him." She said Congress would work with him to find common ground but added that there was "great distance" between them on Iraq

"If the president thinks by vetoing this bill, he'll stop us from working to change the direction of the war in Iraq, he is mistaken," Reid said.

In a signing ceremony ahead of the bill's delivery, Democratic leaders urged President Bush to reconsider his plan to veto the legislation, which sets an Oct. 1 deadline for U.S. troops to being pulling out of Iraq.

Democrats timed delivery of the war spending bill with the timetable for withdrawal to fall on the same day of the year that Bush gave his "Mission Accomplished" speech aboard the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1, 2003.

Bush vetoed the bill after returning from a trip to Tampa, Fla., to visit the U.S. Central Command. He has repeatedly signaled his opposition to setting a timetable to begin withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq but said he wants to work with Congress to fund the troops on the ground.

"Whatever our differences are, surely we can agree that our troops are worthy of this funding and we have a responsibility to get it to them without further delay," Bush said. "We can begin tomorrow with a bipartisan meeting with congressional leaders at the White House."

Hours before Congress was set to send the bill to the White House, Republicans urged Democrats to stop "playing politics" with the Iraq war supplemental. Later in the day, they praised Bush for his veto.

"Our fighting men and women have stood by patiently as Democrats in Congress tried to pass an 'emergency' funding package larded up with pork and weighed down with unnecessary strings. It's about time this Congress delivered the troops a bill worthy of their continued sacrifice, and consistent with their outstanding needs,” said House Minority Whip Roy Blunt, R-Mo.

"I am very hopeful that we can then use this opportunity to actually solve the problem and stop using it to just make a political statement. We need to get the funding to our troops," Rep. Adam Putnam, R-Fla., told FOX News before the veto.

Former Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., who recently returned from a trip to Iraq, said he hopes both sides of the aisle can hammer out a deal after the veto.

“This is a time with us, together with the Republicans, as President Bush vetoes this, to work across the aisle, making sure that they’re funded, but coming to the right exit strategy that can enhance our security for Iraq and that can be done,” Sestak told FOX News.

Other lawmakers said the president's decision to add more troops in Iraq is built on a faulty premise.

“The Bush administration still believes that Iraqis will rally to a strong, democratic central government that treats everyone equitably. And the surge is designed to buy time for that government to get its act together. But there is no trust within the government, no trust of the government by the people and no capacity by the government to deliver security and services. And there is no prospect that we can build that trust and capacity any time soon,” said Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Joe Biden, D-Del., before the veto.

The bill would have set a timetable for withdrawing U.S. combat troops from Iraq either in July or beginning Oct. 1, depending on circumstances in Iraq, with a goal of completing the pullout in six months.

Biden: We're Going to Shove Bush Veto Down His Throat
So now that the Surrender bill that the Crybaby Defeatest Democrats voted on KNOWING President Bush was going to VETO just so they could play politics with our Troops lives and the Iraqi people AND Our Allies is history, Can we get back to funding our Troops WITHOUT an artificial timetable for Surrender, and PEANUT STORAGE in the next bill?

How DARE the Democrats vote to send our Troops into harms way, ask for more Troops, get more Troops, not even give the Surge THEY REQUESTED a chance to work, come up with an artificial timetable for withdrawl, then DECLARE THE WAR LOST! HOW DARE THEY! HOW DARE THEY TRY TO MICROMANAGE THIS WAR AND TELL THE ENEMY WHEN WE ARE GOING TO LEAVE? And time the bill to coincide with President Bush on the Aircraft Carrier 4 years ago, if this whole thing wasnt about Politics, I dont know what is.

The Democrats have officially become the Party of Surrender, Defeat, and Treason!

What the hell kind of message does this send to our Troops, the Iraqi people, and our Allies?

Part of me almost wishes he would have signed it on TV and explained to the people the ilegality of the bill the announced a Constitutional challenge in the Supreme Court so the country could see just how the Dems are trying to bypass the Constitution and the authority of the CIC.

Unfortunatly Bush is no reagan and cannot sell it like he could and it would most likely back fire.

I'm glad though to finally see him stand strong against the Dems. I wish he had been this strong all along with them instead of looking for compromise with the wheenies who only look for ways to screw the President and damage the nation.

I wish W would make the Liberals his whipping toys though.

I wish the entire administration would become complete Rhetorical Flamethrowers!

I support W completely but I sure do wish he would take the Liberals to task!

I hope the Supreme Court steps in on some of this madness and fast!

She said Congress would work with him to find common ground

She wants common ground? Try this: We win, they lose.

There's no other common ground than a united front for American victory. We should not accept anything less.
