Bush also renewed his request to Pelosi to not bring the resolution to a vote. "Congress has more important work to do than antagonizing a democratic ally in the Muslim world, especially one that's providing vital support for our military every day," he said.

It' amazing to me that this bill ever made it this far. Wrong time. Wrong circumstances.
