Political gas?

Probably. But still, Bush actually apologized!!! No, wait. That's an exaggeration. He took responsibility, that's it. I'm thinking, "DUH!!!"

"Where mistakes have been made, the responsibility rests with me," Bush said.

Yeah, well, we knew that. Thank you, so much, for the clarification. *rolls eyes*

He said that "to step back now would force a collapse of the Iraqi
government, tear that country apart and result in mass killings on an
unimaginable scale."

Yeah, and I agree with that. However, I wonder if he realizes that many people don't care any more. Now, that doesn't say much for American empathy/apathy...but, again, we pretty much knew that.

The only encouraging thing about all this...

But he offered a concession to Congress — the establishment of a bipartisan working group to formalize regular consultations on Iraq. He said he was open to future exchanges and better ideas.

Now, does he mean it? Will it work? I don't know. And, I doubt it. Frankly, I don't trust the new Congress any more than I trust the old Congress, or the President for that matter. Their all smarmy, schmucky, and corrupted by their own affluence-at-the-expense-of-our-nation thinking.

Mostly, it's just politics as usual. Bored now.

Politics as usual indeed.

Will he listen? Probably not. He will only listen enough to pay lip service to the concerns of those that his advisors say are important (i.e. the reference to the ISG).

No, he is going all the way with this one and there is no stopping it.

I'm still holding on to the near-futile hope he'll get some sort of spiritual epiphany and figure out what it means to be President of the United States of America, leading troops into battle -- at least figuratively. Unlikely, perhaps, but it could happen.
