Mark it down. August 29, 2007. That’s the day the Pentagon announced it was done being responsible for Mr. Bush’s waste of lives, time, and money in Iraq. Tonight, the Defense Department has essentially told the President, "Thanks for the war, George, but it’s all you from here on out, buddy."
So much for the Petraeus Report. That’s the sound of America’s largest department collectively throwing its hands up in exasperation, shaking its head, and saying, "You deal with it, tough guy. We’re done with your asinine war. Have fun facing the American public."
Face the American public? He doesn't think he needs to and he wouldn't dare anyway even if the dim little bulb in his head comes on.
That bears repeating: The military commanders want to be able to distance themselves from Iraq strategy by making it clear that whatever course is followed is the president’s decision. This can be translated as: "Here, George. Hold this."
Miers. Bartlett. Rove. Gonzales. The Defense Department.
Fresh out of friends.
I hope the Chimp begins to understand that Cheney made him do the devil's work when the crow's nest he's standing in fills up with water.
