Bush repeats veto threat

From NBC's Mark Murray
Just before the Iraq spending bill cleared the Senate, President Bush -- flanked by GOP leaders at the White House -- once again repeated his threat to veto the legislation. "Yesterday I gave a speech, making it clear that I'll veto a bill that restricts our commanders on the ground in Iraq, a bill that doesn't fund our troops, a bill that's got too much spending on it," he said. "We stand united in saying loud and clear that when we've got a troop in harm's way, we expect that troop to be fully funded. And we've got commanders making tough decisions on the ground, we expect there to be no strings on our commanders."
