Bush now, Bush then…

Posted by on June 28 at 17:19 PM


QUOTE OF THE DAY: “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it’s also important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they will be withdrawn.” - Governor George W. Bush, June 5, 1999, on the troops deployed to Kosovo under president Clinton. I should say I disagreed with Bush then and I disagree with his critics on a timetable now. Kosovo worked because of military force and perseverance. For all our mistakes, perseverance in Iraq - and no timetable for withdrawal - is our only responsible option now. I just hope the president tonight outlines a credible strategy for victory; and begins to re-shuffle the team that brought us into the current mess.
