New Democratic talking point: Okay Mr. President, you can have it your way. We tried, for now. In the fall we're going to look at how you're doing, and if the "surge" isn't working, we're going to ask the Republicans in Congress to get with us and pass a new Iraq withdrawal plan that's veto-proof.
Of course, both parties are using the troops as a political football, leaving the American people wondering how we're going to get out of Iraq. The Republicans, by August, should be completely fed up with Bush. Let him have his victory now, without continuing the fight, let him run around saying how he saved the troops from the Democrats. While he's fighting a war with the other party, it'll become clear to everyone else that he's not taking responsbility for the war in Iraq, which of course, the Republics (sic) started.
One more thing, schedule another Bill Clinton appearance on Fox, asap.
