Pelosi to Bush: Calm Down

From NBC's Mike Viqueira
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is asking President Bush to "calm down with the threats … there's a new Congress in town."

Asked about Bush's promise to veto the war spending bill that calls for a timeline for withdrawal, Pelosi replied, "I wish the president would take a deep breath and respect our constitutional role." She went on to accuse the president of getting the military into a situation where the funds were urgently needed. At his speech this morning, Bush had warned that the blame will be laid squarely at Democrats' feet if troops don't get this money in time.

"We are going to give him everything he asked for, and more," Pelosi said, before concluding, "take a deep breath, Mr. President."
