Another Damn Defeatocrat

In the months and weeks leading up to the November elections, President Bush branded antiwar Democrats as "defeatocrats." He also said that "absolutely we are winning"
in Iraq, and those that disagreed with him were "defeatists."

Well, yet another powerful Washington voice has spoken up to say that the United States is currently "not winning" the war. The problem is that this time it wasn't some unpatriotic defeatocrat uttering those words. No, it was.... None other than George W. Bush himself.

He also now says that the U.S. needs to send more troops to Iraq. Interestingly enough, when John Kerry during the 2004 campaign said we needed another 40,000 soldiers, Bush dismissed the proposal. Even as recently as six months ago, the White House was saying that there was no need to send in more soldiers.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go repeatedly pound my head into the wall.
