President Bush on Saturday challenged lawmakers skeptical of his new Iraq plan to propose their own strategy for stopping the violence in Baghdad.”To oppose everything while proposing nothing is irresponsible,” Bush said.
While it would be nice to have a plan that would get us out of Iraq, allow Iraq to achieve stability, and maintain (rebuild) our reputation for decency, I fear that plan is only possible in W’s (or maybe Tom Clancy’s) head. I fear it can no longer happen that way. That’s why the congressional opposition is not proposing it. What they’re proposing is a plan that gets us out of Iraq, which is really the only viable planning left those who have to pick up the pieces. Sorry. It’s as if my son came to me and said “The cat pissed on the kitchen floor after I kicked it. I propose we add more piss to the kitchen floor; the added piss will enable the whole to congeal more quickly so we can clean it up faster. I don’t see you coming up with any piss-cleaning ideas.”
Here’s a couple ideas: a) Get a mop, and b) you’re fucking grounded.
