"Don't push me cuz I am close to...the...edge!"
With every day a wasting, with the number of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq now standing at 2,920 and climbing, Bush is dawdling.
The decider can’t seem to decide what to do about Iraq.
He is too prideful, too headstrong, too macho, too ignorant, and too foolish to do the sensible thing, which happens to be what a majority of the American people want, and that’s to set a timetable for withdrawal and get out of there.
No, that’s not on Bush’s agenda.
He’s already torn up the fig leaf that James Baker gave him to exit stage right.
Bush is crazy enough to still think he can wrest victory from the jaws of defeat, when he’s just going to end up throwing more bodies into those bloody jaws.
