The American people voted for change in the 2006 midterms, right? A change in the culture of corruption in Washington, a change in the lack of checks of Bush Administration overreach, and most of all, a change in Iraq.
Did you know that the “change” Americans wanted in Iraq was more troops? Yeah, that’s what Americans wanted when they roundly defeated the president’s party. More. Troops.
Honest to god, this statement from President Bush could not be more disingenuous. And that’s an incredible statement, all things considered.
