A man, a plan...
This quip has been floating around on the internet for a while, but I just encountered it: "What's the difference between Vietnam and Iraq? George Bush had a plan to get out of Vietnam."
The Bush Administration is now declaring their intent to bug out of Iraq with their tail between their legs. It will be a bug out, but they'll call it a dignified victory, mission accomplished, freedom on the march.
I was pretty sure that was coming, and I'm not so sure about this next part, but we might even see a sort of pre-abandonment of the president. People who had been saying on '04 that he was such an able leader may find it convenient, as '08 approaches, to say that everyone knows his faults, and maybe one of them was to be too trusting of his subordinates, yes, too loyal. And they made lots of mistakes, true, and combined with Democrat Party intransigence, let us fail in Iraq.
Expediency has become a culture in American politics, and facts are no obstacle to faith, so they may look at their lame duck as the next election approaches and find it clean and tidy to just bin all their troubles in a wad by binning him. We Shall See.
...But this next Republican candidate, he's one that won't make mistakes.
