The same script

Bush's Iraq speech last night was rather pathetic, since aides had built it up as a profound statement that would clearly outline the steps that will be taken in the weeks and months to come.

Instead, Bush offered nothing new, and recycled the exact same platitudes he's been spewing for months. That he delivered his tired rhetoric about "terrorist enemies" and "Saddam loyalists" at the Army War College, whose faculty have been quite critical of the entire Iraq mess, is also rather ironic.

The country would have been better served if Bush visited Carlisle, PA to hear a lecture, rather than to give one.
