Bush Speech: What Bush Didn't Say

Posted by Bob Brigham

Bush didn't offer a plan to win. Bush didn't offer a strategy. Bush offered nothing to our troops. Bush failed.

While Bush recycled Washington Republican talking points, he didn't tell the American people why today was any different day. He still has no plan and our problems in Iraq continue to grow.

Bush failed tonight just like he's failed in the everything relating to his war.

Tonight the American people saw a failed speech by a failure of a President.

Bush: It is important...to lay out a timetable...

No, in this evening's speech on TV President Bush did not announce a timetable or support for a timetable for withdrawal. However...

Speaking during the Clinton andministration's involvement in Eastern Europe:
Houston Chronicle April 9, 1999: "Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is."

Scripps Howard -- Feb. 9, 1999 "I would strongly urge that if there are U.S. troops involved, they be under U.S. command or NATO command," Bush said Thursday. "I think it's also important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they will be withdrawn."

On his own war in Iraq:
White House press release June 24, 2005: "There's not going to be any timetables."

Timetale vs. Exit Strategy. Here's a concept for you to think over - They're not the same thing!
