Out-Bushing Bush on Iraq

Who's more pig-headed than George W. Bush when it comes to Iraq? You guessed it:
All wrong

(The Politico) President Bush said today if the Iraqi government were to ask the United States to leave Iraq, he would grant the request. "We are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government. This is a sovereign nation. Twelve million people went to the polls to approve a constitution. It's their government's choice,’’ the president said during a Rose Garden news conference. "If they were to say leave, we would leave."

We should leave Iraq when doing so will not harm OUR national security. Period.

If Iraq becomes a haven for Al-Qaida or Iran, we'll be back there anyway. Finish the job.
Let's review.

A majority of people in the US want our troops out of Iraq.

So does a majority of the US Congress.

And a majority of the people of Iraq.

That has left one person, The Decider, insisting that US troops stay no matter what anyone else says.

But now Bush says that if the Iraqi government we've set up, in the name of bringing democracy to Iraq, asks the US to leave, he would do what they ask.

Which leaves only Jessica McBride, defender of freedom and enemy of Islam, who would maintain the occupation no matter what anyone else wants. (So that Iraq doesn't become "a haven for Iran?")

Fortunately, she is not The Decider.
