President George W. Bush, ratcheting up a fight with Congress over Iraq, accused Democrats on Friday of conducting a political debate on the war while delaying action on money to upgrade equipment and give US troops a pay raise. "It is time to rise above partisanship, stand behind our troops in the field, and give them everything they need to succeed," Bush at the White House after meeting with veterans and military families. Bush spoke two days after Senate Republicans thwarted a Democratic proposal to pull out troops from Iraq. Bush said that instead of approving money for the war, "the Democratic leaders chose to have a political debate on a precipitous withdrawal of our troops from Iraq."
