Moe, Larry, and Curly
George Bush once said that he would stay the course in Iraq even if the only support for this policy was Laura and Barney. This is what is coming to pass.
AP Analysis: Iraq policy isolates Bush
""He is as isolated as a president can be," said Julian Zelizer, a political historian at Boston University."
""I'm wondering if this is not some kind of tragically misguided notion of statesmanship on the part of Bush, that there is something noble about ignoring public opinion," said Margaret Susan Thompson, who teaches a Modern Presidency course at Syracuse University's Maxwell School."
Nobody wants to see more troops go into Iraq. This includes a slew of Republicans both in the Senate and in the Congress, who are bailing on Bush.
This also includes none other than George Bush himself! Bush said in a prime time speech a year and a half ago, "Sending more Americans would undermine our strategy of encouraging Iraqis to take the lead in this fight. And sending more Americans would suggest that we intend to stay forever."
Talk about flip flopping.
