Bush taking more time to craft Iraq plan

President Bush worked nearly three hours at his Texas ranch on Thursday to design a new U.S. policy in Iraq, then emerged to say that he and his advisers need more time to craft the plan he'll announce in the new year.

LSB: He must have been – wait for it! – ‘bushed!’

Three hours? That’s all the time he could give for the troops over there and their families waiting over here? We’re coming up on the fourth anniversary of Mr. Bush’s war, so how much more time will he need to craft a plan? Quite a while, I imagine, if he's working at three-hour intervals.

“W” might be out of touch, but Rove et al are bright enough to know that the perception by the public to a pitiful three hour meeting is shameful. Iraq is in chaos and he took just three hours to strategize a war he started. Pathetic.

Yeah... It's not like he hasn't had FOUR YEARS to analyze this nightmare. It already seems apparent what his new "solution" is going to be, and that's effectively more of the same.

Is there really anybody out there who thinks that a temporary surge of troops in Baghdad is going to change anything?

I was so hopeful that the Baker-Hamilton report would provide Bush with cover to actually try to wind this thing down. It is clear that he isn't interested in that whatsoever.
