Arguing about what to do with a Iraq bill is pointless

It doesn't matter what bill the Democrats send to the White House. So long as a bill give Congress any power to restrict what Bush does in Iraq in any possible way, Bush will veto that bill. It is wholly irrelevant what the exact bill is. It is irrelevant whether the bill sets timetables, benchmarks, or requires him to report to Congress. Any restriction is unacceptable to him, and any restriction will be vetoed. He is trying to shift responsibility for losing the war onto the Democrats.
All that Pelosi and co. need to do is keep on sending him back bills that he finds unacceptable, and go on TV, continually asking the the following question of the media (and anyone else who will listen):
Why won't the president fund the war?
Hell, even The Onion has figured it out.
