Failure Avoidance

Presidential press conference just broke up. Bush just threw down a new "We are not leaving Iraq as long as I am President" line.

I really think he means this.


The interesting thing is that Bush isn't even bothering to lie or spin about this anymore. Iraq is hurting the GOP and is just killing the Bush Presidency. But the happy talk is gone. There is no more talk of victory just around the coner, light at the end of the tunnel. We are stuck in Iraq for the next two and a half years, at which time some other President can officially pronounce Iraq a failure. But at least Iraq won't have "failed" on Bush's watch.
