Bush Hokey-Pokeys

First The Decider says he will in a WaPo interview last month.... "It's important to trust the judgment of the military when they're making military plans".... I'm a strict adherer to the command structure."

And then he won't.... "With Iraq Speech, Bush to Pull Away From his Generals" ... even though members of the Joint Chief of Staff have long opposed Bush's proposed "surge" in troops, and outgoing head of Central Command said less than two months ago, "adding U. S. troops was not the answer for Iraq."

While doing this Hokey-Pokey, The Decider also is engaging in musical chairs.... anyone not singing his tune won't find a seat at his council.

One has to wonder if The Decider ever speaks the truth, or are his utterances and decisions just a part of his gamemanship as he tries to defend and extract himself from his place in the wallow of history.

Even one of his biggest supporters for the token 20,000-troops "surge," Lindsey Graham (R-SC), inadvertently reinforced The Decider's sick rationale... "He understands that the safety of the nation and HIS LEGACY is all on the line here."

"Pentagon officials cautioned that a modest troop increase could lead to more attacks by al-Qaeda, provide more targets for Sunni insurgents and fuel the jihadist appeal for more foreign fighters to flock to Iraq to attack U.S. troops."

Tune in this evening as The Decider reportedly opines, "that we have to go up before we go down...." a double entendre if ever there was one.

Sen.Lindsey Graham's remark that the president "understands that the safety of the nation and HIS LEGACY is all on the line here" is TRAGIC.
This president has been catastrophic for our nation both here and abroad and his legacy, if any, will rightfully be in the dumpster of American history.
