Bush, in a Shift, Accepts Concept of Iraq Timeline

Bush must feel like a Dad driving the rest of the nation on a cross country trip. "Are we there yet?" "Are we there yet?" "I have to go to the bathroom!" "Billy's touching me!" "Susie's looking at me!"

NYT - "Can we get a timeline?"
"W" - "When the situation is secure."
Dems - "Can we get a timeline?"
"W" - "When the commanders on the ground feel it's safe to do so."
NYT - "Can we get a timeline?"
"W" - "When we have made sufficient progress."
Dems - "Can we get a timeline?"
"W" - "When doing so won't endanger all the hard work we have done."

When? I don't know. When? When the time is right.

"W" - "The surge was a success. 15 of 18 benchmarks have been met or are being met. Things are rolling along. Let's start looking at drawdowns, etc."

HOUSTON — President Bush agreed to “a general time horizon” for withdrawing American troops in Iraq, the White House announced Friday, in a concession that reflected both progress in stabilizing Iraq and the depth of political opposition to an open-ended military presence in Iraq and at home.

CONCESSION????? What. The. Fuck?
