If you watched Bush’s speech tonight, you may be interested in this analysis from the Washington Post. As I have been so frequently of late, I’m simply stunned to see that our Dear Leader didn’t exactly stick to the facts in his “I’m pretending this isn’t more of the same ‘stay-the-course’ bullshit that I’ve been spewing for the past four years” spiel.
And in case you’re still in doubt that Gen. Petraeus would choose to tell W just what he wants to hear (Monday night’s exclusive interview on Faux News should have been a big clue), Centcom Commander Adm. William Fallon called Petraeus an “ass-kissing little chickenshit” — to his face — for sucking up to superiors.
Ah well, at least Bush says he’ll bring home some of the troops. Just in time to take the pressure off of Congressional Republicans struggling for re-election. He’s still determined to hand off the mess he created to the next occupant of the Oval Office.
