From yesterday's Seattle Times. If I hadn't known better, I would have guessed it was from the Onion. I watched the speech (in a continuing effort to desensitize myself to Bush's voice and actually listen—I was always frustrated by the Clinton-haters who instantly went ballistic at the very sound of his voice), and I don't think the headline is too far off. There was very little new said. And I think given what we know now, his 9/11 references have passed well into the realm of poor taste. The most frustrating thing (is anyone reporting on this?) is the continuing disconnect over whether we have enough troops there. Bush said, "If our commanders on the ground say we need more troops, I will send them. But our commanders tell me they have the number of troops they need to do their job." Immediately after the speech, Joe Biden says, basically, he just came back from Iraq yesterday, and there was not a single general who said he had enough troops. So... what up? Can someone explain this?
