RUSH: President Bush today live from the White House. This is after the Senate made it official, 51-47, the timeline to get out of Iraq by March 31st, 2008. THE PRESIDENT: Yesterday, I gave a speech making it clear that I’ll veto a bill that restricts our command on the ground in Iraq, a bill that doesn’t fund our troops, a bill that’s got a too much spending on it. I made that clear to the members. We stand united, and saying loud and clear that when we’ve got a troop in harms way, we expect that troop to be fully funded. RUSH: So this sets up the showdown that will come. They have a conference. Ben Nelson, by the way — the Senator from Nebraska, who voted procedurally yesterday in the first vote that was 50-48 — changed his mind and voted for a set timeline. A story in the stack today says, ‘If the conference report has a firm date, I’m not voting for it.’ So Ben Nelson voting both ways, which will give him a chance to say to critics, ‘I voted for it before I voted against it.’ He can do a John Kerry on this, I suppose.
