Bush invites Dems for a meeting on war spending

April 11, 2007 03:21

President George W. Bush offered to talk with Democrats about the standoff over war funding, but he made it clear he will not embrace any timetable for a US troop withdrawal. Democrats said there was no point in talking if Bush refused to negotiate. "We can discuss the way forward on a bill that is a clean bill - a bill that funds our troops without artificial timetables for withdrawal, and without handcuffing our generals on the ground," Bush said in a speech to an American Legion audience Tuesday.
