I just heard Bush on NPR giving a speech about the war and financing the war. Please tell me if anything seems a little bit off with his statements. I'm paraphrasing but he basically said that he's asking for just under $75 billion for the war (because it's somehow going to cost less than last time...) and that now is not the time for "business as usual" in Washington. He explained that what he meant by that was now is not the time for Congress to be pushing inappropriate, non-war related spending because it would be irresponsible to do so at a time of war.

In related news, last week Bush and Congressional Republicans voted for enormous tax cuts and to repeal the Estate Tax a year early.

But I guess that enormous tax cuts for the wealthy aren't considered irresponsible spending.
