Bad Bad News

For the Democrats, phil u and The Left, that is.

The Iraqi government at last is getting it's shit together and appears to have reached an internal political accommodation now that the Yanks have woken up that they are fighting an insurgency, not a war.

Perhaps George Dubbya is just so much smarter than his many detractors say he is.

Adolf can hear the widespread muttering of 'oh shits' and 'goddamnits' from the halls, vaults, corridors and shabby squalid dens of the Defeatists as their anti American dreams continue to evaporate.

The irony of it all is that it has taken eight months of ineffectual posturing and empty threats from the Democrats and their one or two republican fellow travellers to push Malarky into getting alongside his own enemies to work out a compromise.

You see, these Iraqis know all about MMP.

Since we are doing the historical context thing today Adolph here is a Kansas City Star piece that might compliment your post.

Will Bush bounce back like Truman?

"After Iraq aborts the invasion that is being carried out by the American and British villains, the USA will no longer be a superpower. Its deterioration will be rapid. I say to those villains who are meeting in Europe, thinking of launching psychological war and brainwashing: wait. Do not be hasty because your disappointment will be huge. You will reap nothing from this aggressive war, which you launched on Iraq, except for disgrace and defeat."

I wonder if they need economists in iraq. I hear that they have a lot of oil, it would be like working in Scotland but warmer.

I've heard that Iraq has quite a good soccer side as well.

Dim, I'm surprised you haven't got some early 1945 commentary from Dr Goerbels on the illegal quagmire created by Churchill and Roosevelt in Europe.

Andrei, the key paragraph in the article you link to would suggest not.

“The comparisons between Bush and Johnson, the parallels in foreign policy are stunning,” said Robert Caro, a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of the Johnson presidency. “But domestically there’s no comparison at all. If you’re trying to assess presidents, you need something to assess.”

Bush's domestic achievments or should we say non achievements haven't been quite as disastrous as his foreign policy but leave little doubt that the future is not going to elevate into the pantheon of the greats.

With Rove and now Gonzales gone the disintegration is becoming a train wreck.
