Senate Passes Military Spending Bill Now Headed for Veto

Hot Air has a report with lots of updates. Chuck Hagel and Gordon Smith crossed over to vote with Democrats. Joe Lieberman voted with Republicans.

Text of Joe Lieberman’s speech is posted below.

Update: Iraq reacts to the vote.

BAGHDAD – An Iraqi government spokesman criticized the U.S. Senate vote to begin withdrawing U.S. troops by Oct. 1.

“We see some negative signs in the decision because it sends wrong signals to some sides that might think of alternatives to the political process,” Ali al-Dabbagh told The Associated Press…

“Coalition forces gave lots of sacrifices and they should continue their mission, which is building Iraqi security forces to take over,” al-Dabbagh said. “We see (it) as a loss of four years of sacrifices.”
Update II: Dick “Attack Dog” Cheney is more popular than Harry Reid? Now that is funny.

Update III: I hope the President is planning on making a prime time speech to talk about the veto. Many (including me) have complained that the President has not done enough to inform the American people on the war. This is a perfect opportunity to change that.

Update IV: Murdoc agrees that the President needs to do a prime time address to the nation ad has even written a doosie of one for him.
