Bush: "I know it's the wrong decision, but I'm gonna do it anyway!"

The imperialist knucklehead mcspazatron

President Bush acknowledged for the first time that the United States is not winning the war in Iraq. He is also stating that despite advice from just about everyone in the military, he is going to send more troops to Iraq.

Bush may not defer to brass on troop levels
WASHINGTON — The debate about sending more U.S. troops to Iraq intensified Wednesday as President Bush signaled that he will listen but not necessarily defer to balky military officers.

At an end-of-the-year news conference, Bush said he agrees with generals "that there's got to be a specific mission that can be accomplished" before he decides to dispatch an additional 15,000 to 30,000 troops to the war zone. But he declined to repeat his usual formulation that he will heed his commanders on the ground when it comes to troop levels.

Bush sought to use the 52-minute session, held in the ornate Indian Treaty Room in a building adjacent to the White House, to sum up what he called "a difficult year for our troops and the Iraqi people" and reassure the American public that "we enter this new year clear-eyed about the challenges in Iraq."

Asked about his comment to the Washington Post this week that the United States is neither winning nor losing the war, Bush pivoted forward. "Victory in Iraq is achievable," he said.

"he will listen but not necessarily defer to balky military officers." Balky? A person balks, they are not "balky." Bush may not defer to brass on troop levels

I wish that stubborn was his only fault. We are all being forced to breath deep from the vapors of the unventilated room that bush is painting. I just hope that someone would open a friggin' window!
