In his regular weekly address today, Bush said it was "irresponsible" to "oppose everything while proposing nothing."
He said a cutoff in funding should not even be considered because it would undercut troops on the ground.
Bush also reiterated that he would hold the Iraqi government responsible to pledges they made, including taking over the country's security by November.
