I'll have the gradual pullout, hold the timetable

Editors Note: My company has joined Scott’s in blocking blog access at work, so the posts will be coming in the evening now until I get mine back (I need the access to properly do my job). Enjoy.

Ironic - I-'rä-nik – adjective – relating to, containing, or constituting irony, which is an incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result. See also: James Baker, the Bush family consigliore, and his panel’s recommendation of an Iraq pullout that are in clear disagreement with Bush’s ideas.

That’s right, you heard me…. The 10-member panel calls for a gradual pullback of the 15 American combat brigades that are currently in Iraq. What it boils down to is this: the group is advising that the U.S. gets the hell out of Iraq.

That’s great in and of itself, but the only thing is, they are vague, and one has to think they’re being intentionally vague, on setting an actual timetable.

While the 10-member panel, led by gop lapdogs James Baker and Lee Hamilton, calls for a gradual pullback in Iraq, they stop short of setting a firm timetable for the withdrawal.

Yes, the group wants a gradual pullout.

“President” Bush was quick to nip this idea in the bud.

In a joint press conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki today, Dumbya dismissed the commission’s recommendations even before it’s been officially released saying “I know there’s a lot of speculation that these reports in Washington mean there’s going to be some kind of graceful exit out of Iraq. We’re going to stay in Iraq to get the job done.”

Sigh… Dumbest. Person. Ever.

What is Bush thinking??? The American people want a gradual pullout… the Iraqi government and the Iraqi people want a pullout… and a commission led by a Bush-family confidant wants a pullout… yet Bush is still flapping his gums about staying “until the job is done.”

Could one person really be this stupid??? What more needs to happen for him to see he screwed up and it’s time to start moving on? How many more people need to die?? How many more lives need to be shattered??

I was never against the war, per se, what I was against was being lied to by the “commander in chief” for the justification for war… and now I’m against not setting a timetable. Let’s be blunt… setting a timetable and gradualy pulling out is NOT cutting and running… cutting and running would be to pack up everything today and be on the first plane out tomorrow, and I (partially) agree with the thought that that would cause more harm than good to the country.

But the idea of setting a timetable and pulling our troops out in a gradual process is the only possible exit.

How long will it take for this “President” to see that???
