The President must be drinking again. How else would he have said with a straight face, "We are winning in Iraq." More propaganda and patriotic chest-thumping. More talking points and public relations stunts.
Bush laid out reasons why it would be a bad idea to leave Iraq. The case could just as easily be made that the reasons he gave were why we should never have attacked in the first place. His argument is essentially: "I fucked up and got us into this horrible mess. Now, if we leave, it will be a disaster. So, we must stay and suffer because I am a shitty president."
The president also painted some of his harshest critics as "defeatists." I'm not sure why opponents of the war should be blamed for a possible defeat. It was the president who lied to get us into Iraq and has no exit strategy to get us out. If he wants to find the cause of possible defeat, he can look in the mirror.
Look, we all want Iraq to turn around and flower into a democracy. We all want our men in women home from that violent, God-forsaken desert. All the American people are asking is that Bush offers an honest plan of competence and clarity. Unfortunately, he has so far failed to deliver. All we get from Bush is more banners and slogans that fly in the face of reality.
All in all, nothing new was said in his speech and it wasn't worth interrupting even a rerun of Desperate Housewives.
He also seemed nervous and fumbled his sentences often, I have seen many of Bush's speeches and he seemed much more discomboulated than usual. Of course he always seems a bit confused, he seemed more messed up than I would see as typical for him.

I missed his speech. (I was out seeing Brokeback Mtn instead) I'm looking now for snipets on the web. But I can tell ya without even hearing it ... it'll make me wanna puke!
I can't tolerate seeing his smug putrid puss anymore. He is the worst President our country has ever known. He is single handed responsible for taking us down the path to fascism.
Right on Paul. Bush is a psychological basket case who also exhibits the neurological effects of years of abusing booze and coke. Only the dumbest red-stater types would believe anything that pustule has to say! Gary (NJ)

Although I don't agree with the president or the GOP that invading Iraq was for the war on terror. Since the damage to Iraq is done, we should clean up the mess train a security force, ensure a peaceful transition to autonomy and get out.
