Iraq war time horizon


It turns out this President is a lot more adroit with the English language than we thought. A timetable, as it turns out, was a "prescription for surrender." A time horizon, on the other hand, is something we can live with, particularly when a Democratic candidate seems to be gaining traction with a public tired of the war.

Not that it matters that much what he says anymore.

Gotta love Bush-isms. Too bad he can slink out of office to a life of privilege while the things he set in motion will continue to impact the rest of us for decades to come.

Horizon is's
there but you're not....and never will be.
