"responsible Democrats"

From the President's Radio Address:
When Americans went to the polls last November, they did not vote for politicians to substitute their judgment for the judgment of our commanders on the ground. ....

The American people voted for change in Iraq, and that is exactly what our new commander in Iraq, General David Petraeus, is working to achieve. ....

We owe it to the American people and to our troops and their families to deliver our full support. I will continue working with Republicans and responsible Democrats to do just that.
Saying that Americans voted for "change" and that Bush is implementing "change" in Iraq is one of the weakest arguments you can make. "Change" also includes things like dropping chocolate bars from dirigibles to the hungry citizens of Baghdad. Bush knows the polls and that the majority want "out of" Iraq, not "change". And who is a "responsible Democrat"? Anybody other than Joe? (Maybe Ben Nelson)


The American people didn't vote "for change in Iraq", they voted for "change in America". That means you and yours, George.

VIDEO: US Can't Win Iraq War Because Most Iraqis Oppose US Troops

"In all, 83% of Shiites and 97% of Sunni Arabs oppose the presence of coalition forces in Iraq; 75% of Kurds support them. By more than 3 to 1, Iraqis say the presence of U.S. forces is making the security situation worse."

"I think probably the Iraqi people understand the situation there better than those who are advocating to continue on the current course after we have lost the support and the confidence of the Iraqi people. And you can't win without it."- Lt. Gen. Robert Gard (Ret.) US Army
