Bush would've been in even worse shape if Pelosi and the other Democrats had kept their promise to the American people.... :evil:

Pelosi sees ‘drastic’ troop cuts by mid-2008

WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi predicted Thursday that there would be “a drastic reduction in troops” in Iraq by the middle of 2008, saying Democratic opposition to the war had “changed the debate on Iraq in our country.”

In an interview airing Friday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told host Chris Matthews that while Democrats may have failed for now to force President Bush to agree to a timetable to withdraw U.S. troops, their agitation for disengagement from Iraq had backed the president into a corner.

Pelosi noted that Bush yielded to pressure from members of his own party in accepting benchmarks of progress that the Iraqi government was encouraged to meet to keep U.S. support.

The benchmarks in the emergency appropriations bill Bush signed last month were pushed by Sen. John Warner of Virginia, a highly respected Republican expert on defense, so “the president ... does have to answer to the benchmarks in the bill that passed,” she said.

“In either case, I think he’s in very bad shape,” she added.

Pelosi is a narrow minded idiot politician. Shrub has been in a world of crap since 8th grade. Now his legacy is to leave America in a world of crap with little if any way out. And there will be little if any troop withdrawal. How the hell are you gonna get them out??? Magic !!!!
We will stay like the French Foreign Legion of yester year. In four or five remote Citadels in the desert wilderness coming out to commit police actions every now and then.

Nancy is a fool if she believes her feeble powers can dictate to the Mil/Ind/Gov Triad.

There are no ifs, ands, or buts about that fact, TUT. Nancy Pelosi has made a fool of herself and, in the process she's made fools of those of us who believed she and Harry Reid were going to be effective in stopping the Bush administration from continuing to rape the world.

Yes, very true. However, while criticizing the Democrats in Congress for not fighting hard enough to stop the bloodbath, let's all take a deep breath and remember who really has blood on their hands, the Bush administration, and all those who support the murderous neocon imperialist tyrants.

Howard Dean is showing some concern over the Democrats' current lack of progress towards ending the war in Iraq:

Dean: If we don't end war, Democrats could lose power

WASHINGTON (AP) --
Quote:
The high hurdles faced by congressional Democrats in their efforts to end the Iraq war make electing a Democratic president in 2008 the best way to finish the conflict, Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean said Saturday.

He noted his party has made little progress toward ending the war, the cause, he said, that returned them to power.

"The American people hired Democrats last November to ensure that we end this war," Dean said during the weekly Democratic radio address. "So let me be clear, we know that if we don't keep our promise, we may find ourselves the minority again."

Dean put the blame for the lack of progress squarely on the White House and congressional Republicans for blocking his party's attempt at tying war funding to deadlines for troop withdrawals.

"We have to face the reality that Republicans in Congress are standing with President Bush as he stubbornly wields his veto pen," Dean charged. In response, he proposed that the "one way to truly ensure we end this war" was to elect a Democrat as president in 2008

All well and good, but if the Dems had sent the exact same bill to the WH again and again until the public realized it is Rs who want this war, we wouldn't have to sweat it out about who will win the WH next time.

If the public sees the country goes whichever way the Rs want it to go, who do you think they will vote for?

People vote for winners, even when those winners are killers.

I also think that those Republicans that are now supporting Bush would've quickly abandoned him (except for a stubborn few) if they'd seen that the Dems really meant business on Iraq. The war is far too unpopular. Those rats aren't going to leave their ship until it actually starts to go under. Bush must have convinced them that he had put a plug in the ever expanding hole. :roll:
