Subtle up of the ante:

Speaking about Iraq, our president said: “We’re not leaving so long as I’m president.

While I suppose we’ve all known this for a while — given the unholy mess we’re stuck in, there’s really no way we’re going to get out of there for many years to come — it’s interesting to see him completely give up on pretending that we’re going to win the war Real Soon Now.

(Coming soon: A real write-up about the recent war with Hezbollah and what was going on behind the scenes. The short answer is “a hell of a lot.”)

Edit: Will wonders never cease. Take a look at the transcript of another press conference, and search for the word “weapons of mass destruction.” You will see our president openly and publicly admitting that the entire WMD rationale was wrong, and that Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11. Thanks to for the link.

  3. About a year ago, a friend of mine of the British persuasion (who had previously been an advocate of Bush, Jr) inquired ‘Do you think it will take you three presidents to get out of this one, too?’
    I look forward to your writeup with not a little bit of interest.

  5. On an unrelated note, Bush expressly stated that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction and was not involved in 9/11 during the press conference. That is new.
