All Politics, All The Time

This Administration just keeps coming with the same crapola over and over and over. Not unexpected, considering it doesn't have a clue as to what else to do. Washington Post (06.26.06):
"Senate Democrats reacted angrily yesterday to a report that the U.S. commander in Iraq had privately presented a plan for significant troop reductions in the same week they came under attack by Republicans for trying to set a timetable for withdrawal. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said that the plan attributed to Gen. George W. Casey resembles the thinking of many Democrats who voted for a nonbinding resolution to begin a troop drawdown in December. That resolution was defeated Thursday on a largely party-line vote in the Senate." Democrats Cite Report On Troop Cuts in Iraq
"Sen. Carl M. Levin (Mich.), one of the two sponsors of the nonbinding resolution, which offered no pace or completion date for a withdrawal, said the report is another sign of what he termed one of the 'worst-kept secrets in town' -- that the administration intends to pull out troops before the midterm elections in November." "'It shouldn't be a political decision, but it is going to be with this administration,' Levin said on 'Fox News Sunday.' 'It's as clear as your face, which is mighty clear, that before this election, this November, there's going to be troop reductions in Iraq, and the president will then claim some kind of progress or victory.'" Another of those anonymous White House officials "dismissed the suggestion by some Democrats that Casey's approach resembles their approach." He then said that "'(a) conditions-based strategy outlined by our generals on the ground is a far cry from politicians in Washington setting an arbitrary date for withdrawal.'" Which isn't at all what Levin proposed, but the lads in this Adminstration don't give a shit. Incompetent, lying idiot. Pew Research Center (03.15.06):
"The single word most frequently associated with George W. Bush today is 'incompetent,' and close behind are two other increasingly mentioned descriptors: 'idiot' and 'liar.' All three are mentioned far more often today than a year ago." Summary of Findings: Bush Approval Falls to 33%, Congress Earns Rare Praise
