WaPo: “President Bush used his Easter weekend radio address to suggest that while Americans are “blessed” to have so many brave, volunteer military service members, congressional Democrats are jeopardizing their safety by refusing to sign his $100 billion war funding bill.”

Obviously, Democrats aren’t refusing to sign anything. Democrats passed a bill that will fund the troops. Bush is threatening to veto this bill, thus denying the troops money, because he’s refusing to back off an open-ended, accountability-free committed to Iraq. So who’s endangering whose safety?
