Bush in Blunderland

You have to wonder if Rove and Cheney are throwing Bush under the bus. I mean, who is writing these lines? Or are they letting him ad-lib again?
"War is not a time of joy," [Bush] said. "These are challenging times, and they're difficult times, and they're straining the psyche of our country. I understand that. You know, nobody likes to see innocent people die. Nobody wants to turn on their TV on a daily basis and see havoc wrought by terrorists."
Right. Translation: It's not fun to be president anymore. My approval rating is tanking and I can't swagger around like the head rooster in the henhouse now that you people noticed bad shit is happening in Baghdad.
But Bush said he agreed with Gen. John Abizaid, the top U.S. commander in the Middle East, that if "we leave before the mission is done, the terrorists will follow us here." A failed Iraq would provide a safe haven for terrorists and extremists and give them revenue from oil sales, Bush said.
Is he joking? Did he forget his August surprise so soon? According to the sky bomb theory, the terrorists are already following us home. Iraq is the nirvana of terrorism. How much safer could they be? I think they might be losing more people with suicide bombs than we're actually killing. And what oil revenue? Didn't I just read that Iraq is about to start importing oil? It simply boggles the mind.

On a brighter note, Bush, in a fit a pique, admitted Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. My take on that story is here.

Bush admitted 9/11 had nothing to do with Iraq. Now, can we finally start talking about impeachment? What is the country waiting for?
