DECIDERER-IN-CHIEF’S NEW STRATEGERY INVOLVES SENDING 20,000 MORE AMERICAN SOLDIERS THIS MONTH
FITSNews – January 11, 2007 - President George W. Bush (a.k.a. Shrub) has a new strategery for the War in Iraq that involves sending 20,000 additionamal troops.
The only probbelum is that if you believe these poll results, Shrub is plain crazy for wanting to send more troops. Of course, we think what’s crazy is this distinctly American habit of announcering your brand new strategery to the enemeny on worldwide television. Seriously, when did we start doing that? We never used to do that when Roosevelt was President, did we?
Anyway, the reaction to last night’s Shrubspeeech has been predictimable. Here is what Democrat Dick Durbin said:
Escalation of this war is not the change the American people called for in the last election. Instead of a new direction, the president’s plan moves the American commitment in Iraq in the wrong direction.
The Iraq War, which we thought was over like three years ago when Shrub landed on the aircraft carrier with the big banner that said “Mission Accomplished,” is apparently not over. And from the looks of it on CNN we are not winning anymore.
South Carolina’s U.S. Senators still love them some Shrub, though.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said the President “made a persuasive case for strategery change” and Sen. Jim DeMint said, “Americans are not against the war in Iraq, they are against losing – Itâ€™s time for a winning strategery.”
But powerful new House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn disagreed.
â€œThe president avoided an opportunity tonight to regain the trust of the American people and justify his Iraq strategery,” Clyburn said.
And did all three of these important people actually use the word strategery in their comments?
