The Man with the Plan?

What’s the Plan?

We’ve heard the droning on and on and on and on by “President” Bush and his message of “stay the course” in Iraq.

In fact, yesterday he “defiantly reaffirmed” the administration’s “stay-the-course” message on Iraq even as a plethora of the war’s strongest defenders (Democrat & republican) have turned their backs on supporting the war.

(Bush, quite frankly, sounded a little off-his-nut yesterday during his press conference... which leads me to offer him this advice; try de-caf...)

Now… with a little over two months before voters go to the polls and decide who shall have control of Congress, Bush said something that (I think) will follow him for the rest of his presidency:

“We're not leaving (Iraq), so long as I'm the president. That would be a huge mistake.”
Well… okay, then… that sounds pretty damn final to me so I think we, as a nation, need to start asking some serious questions in regards to Iraq.

What is the strategy Mr. President? What is the actual plan of withdrawal?

Screw the empty rhetoric that is “stay the course”… save that for your GOP fundraisers…

We as a nation need a plan Mr. President… a plan that will bring our country the victory that you promised all those years ago.

We don’t want a plan that helps preserve your legacy…

We don’t want a plan that dumps this Iraq quagmire into the next administration’s lap…

We. Want. A. Plan.

A plan that will get us out of Iraq...

A plan that will ensure (relative) safety for the citizens of Iraq...

A plan that would cease the senseless killing of our military...

In other words... an actual plan...

Does your administration have a plan?

...

I doubt it...

One interpretation is that he can resign and it will (eventually) end. What an ASS he is. That is a great blog!!!!!AMS

I've been saying Bush was Whacked since before 2000. Unfortunately the electorate doesn't do its homework in either politics, or world events. Its sad to see our once great nation brought to its knees by a heartless, cruel, and mentally challanged president, who lied, cajoled, and then stole both elections.
Harold Ford Jr. seems to be on the right track with a plan to split Iraq into its historical 3 states, or nations that existed before the British occupation, while I don't think this will end all the fighting, I think that overall, that it might just end up being the way to go.

As for Bush's plan of getting the Iraqis to a point where they can "defend" themselves, we are long past it, it seems they are doing a bang up job of killing one another. Due of course to Bush's intrusion into another countries affairs. I can think of no situation like this one ever working out well. IMHO, there is no way that Iraq becomes a democracy, they simply don't want it on the whole, and to have it, they have to want it. (another Miscue by the Bush-Whackers).

Great Blog, keep up the good work.
