Guess what Bush just did...
I still remember, at the beginning of the war, when Cheney said that the Iraqi people would "welcome us as liberators."
Then, just a few months ago, he said that Iraq was in the "last throes of the insurgency."
He ate his words yesterday and admitted he was wrong (a first I believe for our astute VP), but he still went on and on with the "arbitrary timetable," "terrorist safe-haven" and "cut and run" rhetoric.
Meanwhile, Bush administration officials secretly prepare to Adapt and Adjust, or Redeploy and Reconfigure, or whatever it is they're calling Cut and Run these days. The president compares the crisis to the Tet Offensive but still rejects larger Vietnam analogies. He's right: In Vietnam, only half the country hated us.
