Bush Agrees To Withdrawal Timetable

WASHINGTON - President Bush and Iraq's prime minister have agreed to set a "general time horizon" for bringing more U.S. troops home from the war, a dramatic shift from the administration's once-ironclad unwillingness to talk about any kind of deadline or timetable.

The announcement Friday put Bush in the position of offering to talk with Iraqi leaders about a politically charged issue that he adamantly has refused to discuss with the Democratic-led Congress at home. It also could complicate the presidential campaign arguments of Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama who have staked out starkly opposite stands about the unpopular war.

What's changed? The sharp reduction in violence in Iraq — to the lowest level in four years — has made the country's leaders increasingly confident and more assertive about its sovereignty, giving rise to demands for a specific plan for American forces to leave. - Yahoo! News

Hey, hey, there we go!


  1. My jaw dropped as I read this. Someone just saved his legacy!

  2. You know, the eight-year economic downturn, refusal to separate church from state, a war in Iraq that "mismanaged" doesn't begin to describe...not to mention being remembered as the president whose head was so far up his own ass, he couldn't HEAR what anyone else thought, let alone care about it.

  3. Right war criminal/mass murderer.... Mr. President,sir.
