THE BANE OF HER EXISTENCE:

House GOP chief cautions Dems on spending bill (Edward Epstein, 3/02/07, SF Chronicle)

The House minority leader threatened Thursday to get his members to vote against a $96.3 billion spending bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan if Democrats persist in plans to attach conditions to the money that would tell President Bush how to conduct the wars.

The statement by Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, raises the intriguing possibility that unless Speaker Nancy Pelosi can devise a consensus plan that can unite her Democratic Party members, the Iraq spending bill could be scuttled by an unlikely coalition of pro-Bush Republicans and the most anti-war Democrats.

Isn't that what the Dems want, to defund the War? And they can blame the failure on the Reps, the stupid party.
