Thoughts during tonight’s address…
1991: Stay the Course
2005: Stay the Course
Let’s get George’s logic on the war:
Provoking terrorists doesn’t make terrorists angry, and by provoking them, we are helping to stop terrorism.
Does that make an ounce of sense to you? By setting a withdrawl date, terrorists would back down…not wait it out…their grudge is with us. We’ve “freed” the Iraqis…let them take it from here. We’ve got problems at home.
“Not only can we win the war in Iraq, we are winning the war in Iraq.”
Bull. What war? The “mission” of the war was to disarm Saddam. What the hell are we doing there now? Seriously–I’m asking you. Respond, if you read this, what the hell are we doing over there? “Have patience” — no George. We have been for almost three years.
Victory? How can we be victorious? We haven’t lost a war…but we haven’t won either. The war was to disarm Saddam. So, Republicans could argue, we’ve won. What is left to win?
NBC…Russert calls it “Vintage Bush”…if you don’t support us, we’re defeated.
