Bush says Iraqi troops to take over by year's end

Washington -- President Bush promised for the first time Monday to turn over most of Iraq to newly trained Iraqi troops by the end of this year, setting a specific benchmark as he kicked off a fresh drive to reassure Americans alarmed by the recent burst of sectarian violence.

Bush, who until now has resisted concrete timelines as the Iraq war dragged on longer than he expected, outlined the target during the first of a series of speeches intended to lay out his strategy for victory. While acknowledging grim developments on the ground, Bush cited progress in standing up Iraqi forces capable of defending their nation...


I don't object to him changing his mind -- I don't know if setting a date or not setting a date is the better course.

What I object to is that hypocritical little low-life pissant motherfucker setting the dogs loose on anyone who previously thought setting a date might be a good thing, savaging anyone who disagreed with him and barking about "Treason!!"

The little shit seems to forget he's President of the United States, not the United Arab Emirates. Doesn't matter that he bought his way into the office, with his brother blocking people of color from the polls in 2000, and payoffs to Scalia et al. Doesn't matter that he had Diebold to tilt the results in Ohio in 2004. He's got the job and we are his bosseses -- not Exxon, not Prince Faisal, not Mommy, not any of his homoerotic towel-snapping, sadistic bully buddies.

He acts as if the American public is his enemy, instead of -- now that he's worked his will -- the entire rest of the world.

If he'd ever tried to read the constitution before he let his Male Mother Dick Cheney tear it up, he'd know that.
